Twin Harbors State Park combines the essential Washington coast vacation with the classic state park experience.
A cluster of cabins, yurts, and tent and RV sites give Twin Harbors a community feel. Family reunions are common, and groups of friends love to gather here.
The park's beach trails take off through tunnels of shore pines and soon transition to sand dunes and dune grass. The driftwood-scattered beach is perfect for long walks with your sweetheart or dog, or an afternoon flying kites and playing in the sand with the kids.
Winter should not scare you off. Storm watching remains a popular activity on Washington beaches. Venture out to see white-capped waves, clouds and lightning off the coast, then dash back to your cozy shelter, dry out under blankets and sleeping bags and settle in for an afternoon of food, games and conversation.
You won't want to leave at the end of your stay. You may already plan to return with your family, your friends or your new friends from the cabin next door.

- During the summer at Twin Harbors State Park, you can expect a very social camping experience. A high percentage of visitors come to the park with the goal of spending time with family and friends. Those summer weekends the campground is filled to capacity with very diverse groups of campers enjoying themselves. They love spending time together hanging out around the campfire in the evenings after spending the days relaxing on the ocean beaches, or fishing in Westport.

For regulations, fishing season information, or to purchase a recreational license, visit the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife website.
