Pacific Beach State Park
Run with your kite, or your dog, on a flat sandy beach. Inhale the salt sea air and listen to the Pacific Ocean as it crashes on the shore by your side. Help the kids build sand castles, go fishing or dig for clams in season.
This small camping park northwest of Aberdeen features waterfront tent sites, yurts and RV hookups, so the fun doesn't have to end at sundown. Make a small fire on the beach (be sure it's more than 100 feet from vegetation), roast up some s'mores and watch the evening sky turn blue and then black with stars - or gray with storm clouds.
You will remember Pacific Beach as an invigorating day or weekend stop or special camp stay on a road trip to the coast.
Pacific Beach State Park is a 17-acre camping park with 2,300 feet of ocean shoreline.

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.
