Campground Description

Our campground can best be described as quiet and natural. Deer and many varieties of songbirds and seabirds live here. Herds of wild Roosevelt elk roam the nearby woods and black bear (though seldom seen) are abundant. Our beach is strewn with living shellfish (dungeness crab, hard-shell clams and oysters) intermingled with century old seashells. The sand on our beach is mixed with seaweed, dune grass, agates, clay structures, drift-wood and an occasional glass net-float. You can walk miles in either direction and out from shore a mile at low tide.
