Pacific Beach State Park is a small, 10-acre park located within the town of Pacific Beach along Joe Creek. The park lies on a section of the central Washington shoreline known as North Beach.

The park has a small day use picnic area with direct access to Pacific Beach, restrooms and an outdoor shower area, as well as a 66-site campground that is open all year.

During the late summer, locals converge in the town of Pacific Beach in the hundreds to celebrate the Kelper's Festival + Shake Rat Rendezvous. Celebrated Labor Day weekend, the event includes a parade, live music, food carts, and logging and shake mill competitions. One week later, Pacific Beach hosts its annual Wind Kite Festival.

Kenneth, thanks for sharing! It's a beautiful stretch of beach so few take the time to visit. I'm certainly glad I did! Next time clamming will be on the agenda.

Off-Season in this park is surprisingly pleasant. The early spring atmosphere was enjoyable. The beach which is dotted with campfires and scattered drift wood is beautiful and allows vehicle access during off peak months.
