This state park is a beautiful sandy beach and cars are prohibited from the beach. You do need a discover pass to park in the parking lot and there's a short trail to the beach. There are restrooms close by, and showers. The town of Pacific Beach is small, with a couple of mini marts, gas, a few souvenir shops, a coffee shop and a bakery. There are also camping/RV options, but we just did a day trip. It was 63 degrees in Pacific Beach when it was 90 degrees in Olympia--that was fine with us, but check the weather when you go. Ocean beaches can be much colder than inland. If you want Ocean Shores type view and sand without cars, horses and tons of tourists, this is your spot. If you don't have a discover pass, you can pay a day use fee--I'm sure people park in town and walk down to the beach, but our fees support our great state parks.
