Pacific Pines State Park, on the western side of the Long Beach Peninsula, offers a classic day at the beach, southwest Washington-style.
Dune grasses and knobby shore pines drop gently down to the wide, sandy, Pacific Ocean shore. This 10-acre day-use park is ideal for playing and walking on the beach, birding, fishing, shellfish harvesting and watching the sunset.
Pacific Pines rounds out any trip to the Long Beach Peninsula, with its charming small towns, famous cranberry bogs and historic sites of Cape Disappointment to the south. The park makes a relaxing stop for a romantic picnic, quiet solitude or family fun.
The park offers five unsheltered picnic tables, available first come, first served. There is one restroom at the park.
