We went camping looking for a storm. We have a trailer so weather is not an issue. The park was very wet, many of the sites had water standing and were mostly un-usable. We had a great time--even with the need for boots.

The campground is well maintained and most campsites are laid out to maximize a more private feel even when camped just yards from others. Beach access... More

This state park lies just north of the city of Ocean Shores. We camped at a full hook-up site as close to the beach as possible. Close means about a quarter-mile walk through coastal vegetation and dunes. The beach in this area is long, flat stretches of sand. Your visit will definitely be benefited by good weather, but being at... More

We came for a few hours with out two dogs. The campground was full with Labor Day week end guests but there were only three other cars down in the day use area. Out walk on the path to the beach was quiet and we only passed one small group on the way out and one on the way back... More

Plenty of park staff here and the campsites are well maintained. The trees and bushes between campsites are nice. There is a vendor coming around every evening with firewood and such.

We wanted our kids to have the opportunity to wade/swim in the Pacific Ocean. While you can drive onto the beach (for free I think) "in town" we didn't want to be surrounded by cars. You have to park and walk through some amazing coastal dunes. When we arrived it was hazy and you could barely see the ocean. Thankfully,... More

I have camped at Ocean City State Park many times over the past 40 years. It is great to be half way between Ocean Shores and the casino. Nice campsites, showers and firepits.

Ocean City State Park is convenient to Ocean Shores and beaches. We stayed in Loop 1 which was not very occupied (site #33) and quiet. We would stay here again when we visit Damon Point State park, which is a must!

First of all, we had no idea there was a motorcycle rally all weekend. At a nearby "resort" which was just down the road, there were REALLY loud rock bands playing late each night....so no peace and quiet after dark like we would normally enjoy while sitting around the campfire. So clearly this is not the park's fault, but it... More
