Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Team

Westport Light State Park is a stretch of Pacific Coast beach and dunes on the southern Washington coast known by locals as South Beach. It is named after the 107-foot Westport Lighthouse, or Grays Harbor Light Station, which stands inland from the shore and is visible from most locations within the 212-acre park. A 1.3-mile concrete boardwalk connects Westport Light State Park to adjacent Westhaven State Park and includes several viewing platforms for bird watching and expansive views of the beach.

The beach itself is made up of small, smooth rocks. Enjoy the sound of the rocks as they are churned by the tide, and have fun sifting through them in search of agates. Horseback riding is permitted and common at Westport Light State Park, so whether you are on horseback or strolling on your own two feet, mind your neighbors and enjoy the view.
