Grayland Beach State Park
Does your ideal vacation include flying kites and walking your dog on the beach, surfing the waves on a warm summer day, smelling the sea, or watching winter storms from the comfort of your yurt or RV?
You will find all this and more at Grayland Beach State Park.
Friendly and popular with families and RV enthusiasts, Grayland Beach offers a seaside vacation, Northwest-style, for summer play and peaceful walks in the off seasons.
Several trails leave from the beach loop campground and lead you through gentle grassy dunes and wind-bent shore pines to the Pacific. The wide sandy beach goes for miles, as surf sounds mingle with the honks and squawks of shore and sea birds.
Do you remember the last time you went to the ocean? Has it been too long? What are you waiting for?
Grayland Beach State Park is a 581-acre, year-round, marine camping park with 7,449 feet of spectacular ocean frontage, just south of the town of Grayland. The park attracts kite flyers, observers and people wanting a day at the beach. The park offers campsites and yurts within walking distance of the ocean.
Washington's coastal parks are dynamic and beautiful. They are also potentially dangerous! Learn about beach-specific hazards and how to stay safe when you go to play or camp at coastal parks on our Beach Hazards page.
