Pacific Beach State Park is a 10-acre camping park with 2,300 feet of ocean shoreline. The beach provides a variety of wonders, from dramatic surf to beach exploration. The park's sandy ocean beach is perfect for kite flying, sand-castle building and wildlife watching. Closed seasonally to vehicles, the beach is great for long windy walks.
The park has eight unsheltered picnic tables, available first come, first served. Day-use parking is limited. If visiting with a large group, contact park staff at (360) 276-4297 for parking options.

Vehicle traffic is allowed seasonally on portions of the beach. Driving is allowed only on the uppermost hard-packed sand, and all the rules of the road apply, as on a public roadway.

The park has 18 standard sites, 42 utility sites, two yurts, one dump station, two restrooms (ADA), and six showers (ADA). Twenty-six sites are on the waterfront but are unshaded. All utility sites offer electricity only and are back-in only. Maximum site length is 60-feet (limited availability). The dump station offers fresh water for RV holding tanks. No campfires or portable fire pits permitted in the campground. Charcoal and propane barbecues are permitted. Fires are allowed on the beach. Beach fires need to be more than 100-feet away from vegetation and need to be attended at all times. Make sure the fire is completely out before leaving.
The two yurts at Pacific Beach are within walking distance of the beach. Each yurt is 16-feet in diameter by 10-feet high and is furnished with bunk beds that sleep three, a full-size futon, small end table, overhead light, electrical outlet, and heater. Outside there is a picnic table and a covered entry way that is ADA accessible. All yurts are heated, but visitors should take along blankets and warm clothing as evenings can be cool.
