Very nice trails from the parking lot to Willipa Bay to view the wild live and bird watching then follow the trail to the ocean and play in the dunes, beach and surf. But bring mosquito spray otherwise you will be eaten allive.

I was surprised at the diversity and beauty of this park. I arrived early and was the first hiker, taking the shorter loop trail. The landscape, vistas, silence, expanse of beach made me want to linger and return. I visited on a beautiful, sunny morning...More

Any walk by the water is nice. This place offers nice walks at the tip of the penisula. We came at low tide, which I think is better because it allows views of the wetlands which normally aren't seen. Tip #1, a discover pass is...More

Beautiful Drive on the Long Beach Peninsula to reach the park. Suggest taking the drive through old Oysterville on the way to or back. A must see spot while in the area. Is a different landscape but is all beautiful and worth seeing at least...More

Not at the park, but there are some in the RV park in Ocean Park about 6 miles from the trailhead. A discover pass is required to use the facilities and parking. Only $30 for a year pass which helps maintain the state parks... More
