“Great Campground”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

AND so much more! We went for 4 days and didn't even scratch the surface of things you can do at the park and surrounding area. I liked the smaller campground loops, the sound of the ocean was soothing. The weather wasn't the greatest, but we still had a great time. Can't wait to go back.

“Absolute favorite!”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Our family has been camping here for the better part of 22 years, almost every single year! It's our favorite camping spot in all of Washington due to it being right on the ocean and so large with so much to see and do! We love it! Many attractions nearby as well as a large clean camping spot. They also have a new Pizza stand open very soon as we hear its top notch! There's swimming, surfing, clamming, and just plain beach walking, wonderful beautiful place! Clean with many creatures!

“Amazing 2000+ acre state park”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

A visit to this state park was a trip high lite. Lighthouses (you can go to the top of one), WWII gun battlements, beautiful beaches, trails, campaign sites, yurts, cabins and a location that was spectacular. And two park features that were done by Maya Lin (yes, that Maya Lin - the person who designed the Vietnam Wall Memorial in DC) were the icing on the cake. What a place!

“perfect beach for running”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

lovely park. Perfect empty beach. We ran on the edge of the surf, did a little yoga, had a beer on a blanket, then went for a quick swim. Wonderful.

“End of the World Feeling With Awesome Beauty”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Wife and I got back here after a brief recon visit a couple weeks ago and so glad we made the time. We visited both lighthouses there and got in a healthy 4 miler walk to the beach via Beard's Hollow. Paid $10 for a day Discovery Pass and $2.50 apiece for the North Head Lighthouse access/tour. A good, interesting and enjoyable day in a one of a kind "end of the world" kind of spot in the very southwest spit of land left before the Pacific Ocean/Columbia River takes over. Spectacular views that beg a good camera. Glad we did it and would highly recommend it.
