Twin Harbors

Twin Harbors State Park is a 172-acre camping park on the Pacific coast, four miles south of Westhaven. The area allows opportunities for nature study and seaside activity along the ocean shore, as well as the chance to lie in the sand and soak up the sun in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Beach activities predominate, including kite flying, surf fishing, and beachcombing.

Discover Pass: A Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to state parks for day use. For more information about the Discover Pass and exemptions, please visit the Discover Pass web page.
