Pacific Beach State Park

Pacific Beach State Park is a 10-acre camping park with 2,300-feet of ocean shoreline. The beach provides a variety of wonders, from dramatic surf to beach combing. The park's sandy ocean beach is perfect for kite flying, sand-castle building, beach combing, and wildlife watching. Closed seasonally to vehicles, the beach is great for long windy walks.

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.
