This long, sandy beach area is popular for surfing, beachcombing and other activities.
We've been coming here for decades and never had an issue until the last Independence Day weekend. In fact, I've written rave reviews for this park but not this time.
Within 30 minutes of our arrival, two park rangers came over to let me know that one of my truck tires was on the grass (by about 1 foot). No problem, I understood and immediately moved the truck fully onto the pavement.
The following day we had a group of more than a dozen adults and children camp next to us. They had three cars there at times and were well onto the grass. They also had six, yes 6 tents. It looked like a homeless tent city. They broke some branches off of a tree and used it for firewood. They strung up hammocks to the trees which also is not allowed. There were visitor cars parked in the overflow area and the passes had expired
We reported the issue to the park volunteer park personnel who reported that the rangers had gone to some meetings. The main office was closed much of the three day weekend, too.
Ultimately, nothing happened. We were all pretty disappointed about the inconsistent application of the park rules. I don't understand it other than perhaps it was because they talked in a foreign language and got a "pass" because of that.
I also wrote to the Washington state parks department and board and got one minor reply. So much for that action, too.

Unlike some lighthouses on the Washington and Oregon coast, the Grays Harbor Lighthouse is easily accessible. We have toured others and I am not a fan of heights, so we didn't climb to the top of this one. The tours are always very informative and views great so take advantage of their tour if you haven't previously been up in a lighthouse.

What a beautiful place! I could hardly go inside for wandering around the gardens. There are various "theme" gardens, sculptures, "found" art work, large-scale outdoors chess set, little nook with table and chairs to play checkers, an arbor made of wine bottles with a sedum roof -- on and on. There are some nursery items for sale, and I particularly loved their pine/conifer selection. Inside, for $5, you can get a flight for wine tasting, with the $5 going towards any purchase. The cafe has a smallish menu but interesting selections. A tad on the pricey side, but it's such a beautriful venue! They, also, have weddings here. Just stop by. Well worth it.

This was our 5th visit to Ocean Shores. We had never been as far down the beach as Damon Point. The kids loved it there. They loved checking out the driftwood structures that people had built. Finding a crab and looking for rocks. This beach will be our go to spot next visit.

Housed in a historic Coast Guard station, the museum exhibits highlight the local area. The whale bones outside are impressive. I loved being able to see the lighthouse lens from Destruction Island without having to climb to the top of a lighthouse. The docent turned on the light so that we could see the reflection on the walls. A great stop!

Hands-on learning experience, natural and cultural history of the area. Open 10-4 seven days a week. No entry fee required, but donations are welcome.
Was closed, but the outside displays were interesting. Especially with the provided information. Sad statistics on how many whales were killed by the local industry historically.

The North Jetty is a great place to have a walk on the beach and see and feel the power of the ocean on a windy day....imagine kite flying would be spectacular too

This campground could use some improvement for the nightly price. The tent sites are very small and occupy the edges of a swamp so are LOTS of mosquitos. The beach was a very long walk but worth it. I recommend a day tent at the beach to block sun and wind if you hanging out for the day.

The Painted Pelican is a great little antique shop - very eclectic, with something for everyone and good prices to boot! I always find a "treasure" here! A little difficult to navigate in a wheelchair and the shop includes an upstairs - but the owner is very accommodating (even has offered to take pictures of the merchandise upstairs for me to peruse). Very pleasant shopping experience!

There was a devastating fire at this location a couple years ago and the rebuild of the facility is a very clean, spacious, well lit, open concept eating and drinking establishment with sometimes live entertainment. Prices are moderate but the quality of the local seafood and the pizzas are all top notch. It can be noisy as it is an open concept and the tables are burl logs with benches so it isn't relaxing but it is fun. Some of the brews are locally brewed, some of the wines are their own plus there is ample choices of traditionally available beverages. From the road it may not look as satisfying as it is in reality. The cleanliness is above reproach and the food is prepared where you can see the pizzas made in the wood fired oven. It is convenient for stopping and there is plenty of parking PLUS it appears that there is parking for electric car charging though we didn't have an electric automobile to check this out.
