This is a fairly small operation, but owner cares and keeps up the place. The utilities are excellent. 120 volts, cable TV, water pressure was fine, sewer was fine. Every site has a large level concrete pad, and there is ample room between sites. Owner has decorated the park with rustic items and it looks nice. Ocean City RV Park is located on the highway that runs north from Ocean Shores to Neah Bay. There is little traffic on it at night. The camp sites are located near the road on her property, which extends to the ocean. Worthy of special note, this RV park has the best WIFI I have ever experienced in an RV Park. We live in Seattle, and will come again to this enterprise when we vacation along the coast. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You walk through beautiful woods on a well groomed and clean trail, then you come to the dunes and continue walking to the beach. The walk takes about 10 minutes, so it is a lot farther than I had imagined, but it is clean and inviting all the way. I saw two garter snakes along the way. The beach is like all the Washington beaches along the coast. It very very gradually declines into the water, so the water is shallow for quite a long way. Ocean Shores is a community about 15 minutes south. It has a large hardware store, grocery, quite a few restaurants, candy stores, art galleries and a few amusements, such as mini golf. There is a jetty there, and I understand whales are sometimes seen.

Our stay was preceded by several days of heavy rain leaving many sites with substantial pools of standing water. The area of our site the trailer was parked was dry, site, #139 but boots were required to exit the site. I don't mean a bit of water but standing water several inches deep and many feet across surrounded my site and many other sites. Stakes had also been driven into the ground in some areas to mark the roadway due to the depth of standing water. It was March and we were prepared so it all worked. Summer would be much drier. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

It's all about the beach! 10 minute walk through dune grass and shrubs, good path though and a few miles of open beach. Be aware of vehicles driving on the beach.

This is a nice campground, with several full utility sites in the southwest loop. The privacy of each site was less than I had hoped for. There are a lot of shore pines and dune shrubs growing around the sites, but also many sites totally or partially open to neighboring sites. If you camp here, choose your site carefully if privacy is a priority for you. The utilities are fine. My only problem was with the strange sewer pipe that rises above ground level then turns 90 degrees. I don't know who every thought that design was conducive to proper waste disposal. The taste of water in Washington beach communities can sometimes be rather foul due to sulfur compounds in well water. However, big surprise - the water tasted okay at Ocean City State Park. Not great - but okay. Disappointing was access to the bathroom building. The trails leading to the central bathroom run right through the middle of several campsites. So, you can expect to see people walking right by your rig to access the bathrooms. Luckily, most of the sites around me had self-contained RVs, so few people were using the public bathrooms. Still, two people walked within 5 feet of my rig while we were eating or sitting by the campfire. I never like that, but there really wasn't an alternative route without going far out of their way. The access trails to the dunes and beach are very easy. It takes 5-10 minutes to walk out to the open beach. The beach is broad and wasn't very crowded. Cars can drive on the beach in the area around the park, so be careful - especially with your little ones and dogs. There is no playground in the park, but kids often ride bikes on the rough park roads. There are a few large open grassy spaces suitable for ballgames.
My fellow campers were polite and quiet. The campground was silent by 10pm. Nearby, the city of Ocean Shores has a grocery, gasoline, propane and a few decent restaurants and shops. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

You can pay to ride horses nearby. Tour shops and art galleries. As far as restaurants go, I think Galway Bay Irish Pub and Gift Store has the best food AND musical entertainment during weekends. There is also a coastal interpretive center in Ocean Shores. Check online for hours.

.not a bad park. Some spots much nicer than others. We had a decent spot with afternoon shade. The sewer hookups in washington state parks are lame. Pipe comes out of the ground and then makes a 90 degree bend. Hookup without leaking is difficult at best. We would stay again but use a drive through site. Also, no wifi and weak cell service even though you are only 2 miles from a tower in ocean shores, a flat two miles. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Large campground with many types of sites (wooded, open, adjoining) in four loops. We paid $38 for a non-hookup site which included an $8.00 reservation fee. Seemed a bit high. I didn't think the state park web page picture of our site #27 was a very accurate representation. However, booking three weeks in advance, this was the only site available. Nice beach access with a walk across the dunes. Very convenient to Ocean Shores. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park located close to the beach. The sites and the roads are paved. It is listed as having 50 amp sites but as far as I could tell there were only 2 sites and they were located in the group camp area and had now sewer hook up available. The rest of the loops that were open either had no hook ups or full hook ups with 30 amp. A note on their sewer hook up. I have never ever seen anything like it. A pipe comes up about 10" out of the ground and makes a 90 degree bend. It looks like it's designed to fail if you hook up and dump a full tank. We just went down to the dump station on the way out. This place like all the rest of the CG's run by Washington State had pay showers. They were clean but the mens had no shower curtain but the area was enclosed and my cloths didn't get wet. Verizion MiFi worked well here. We'd stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Motorhome.

We were here over a holiday weekend. There are very few full hook up sites here, and three quarters of the park was closed for the season. Park staff was nowhere to be found over the holiday. The site we had was a pull thru site so we parked backwards and stretched extra sewer line, etc. We parked backwards to have some privacy in this very open site. Overall, the campground was very swampy. I've not seen this much swamp land and canals west of Florida. The showers are pay showers. The beach here is quite a hike from the sites, and serves as some weird roadway so beware of traffic! We will not be returning to this park or recommend it to friends. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Truck Camper.

Very nice park with fairly level sites and LOTS of shade. It's a hike to the beach but several different trails available. Mosquitoes at this time of year were unbearable. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a fine state park, especially if you like camping in the woods within a short walk of the beach. We were in site 167, a fairly level pull through and fairly private from other sites and the road. We could get no antenna TV but our Verizon phone and hot spot worked well.

OCSP has larger pads than Kalaloch for RVs. If you have a Class A or larger C, OCSP is easier to navigate. When you enter the park, stop at the office to see which sites are reserved. They do not mark reserved sites with a sign, so you have no idea if it is available. Then tour the available sites and leave a chair, cones, etc., in the site and return to the office to register. If you plan to stay more than one night, check with the office because the pad may be reserved and you will have to vacate. It is not first come first served, as it is in nearby Olympic NP. Be aware that the black/grey water sewage connection is 10" above ground level. We have a B+ and our connection is 10" above ground level so we could not dump our tanks. You do not want to make the connections and release the valve only to find that the sewer hose will not drain. I noticed that 5th wheels did not have this problem. There is a fee (not free) dump near the exit to dump your tanks if you require. RV sites with hookup are now $36 a night at OCSP. (If you can manage dry camping, you might want to stay at the FREE RV lot at the Casino 1/2 miles away. They have a large RV lot with beach access. It is first come first served. It may lack the ambience of OCSP but the price is right.) We have stayed at both and the air smells the same, the water tastes the same, and the weather is absolutely the same. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the more popular State Parks, and located between the City of Ocean Shores and the Quinault Beach Resort & Casino. It is an older park, but well worth the visit. All the previous reviews are accurate, but I would add a few details. 1) The Wood & Ice Truck makes a run through the park around 5p & 7p nightly. 2) The sewer connection sits about 4-8 inches above the ground, and in most cases the typical hose supports fall a bit short. Bring a few 2x4's to set on some firewood to lift it up. 3) Grocery prices in Ocean Shores run about 25% higher than those in Metro areas. 4) The trees around the sites can make it difficult to pick up satellites, and we never could get our Over-the-Air antenna to get any local channels. Not that TV really matters, because the beach is so inviting! We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Motorhome.

In winter time, only two of the four loops are open: One RV loop with hookup (w/e/s) sites and non hookup sites; and one tent loop. Keep in mind, during the winter, it rains a lot. There is someone in the office during the day and you are supposed to stop and get assigned a spot. However, with all the rain, you may end up going back to the office and saying, "Um: the spot you assigned me is flooded, can I get a different spot?" If you get there after hours, you can do self check-in, they leave you a list of the available spots. The park takes reservations year round, but reservations aren't really critical in winter unless it's a clam dig weekend. If you like to clam dig, AND you want a full hookup site, you better make a reservation. If you don't make a reservation, you can still get in, but in the non-hookup sites. If you have reservations, and your site ends up being flooded, the rangers will do their best to switch you to a different site. There are two trails to the beach, one is in a "day use" area, and the other trail is near site 157. (There may be other trails in the two other loops, I'm not sure.) Being in site 157 isn't a big deal in the winter, but I'm guessing you would NOT want to be in that site in the summer. If you like privacy in your site, the non-hookup RV sites (which are all "back in) and the pull through utility sites seem to be the best, with lots of bushes. The utility spots that are "back-in" seem to be close together with not much separation (but there is room for slides). The rest rooms were typical for state parks, cement floors. You have to buy tokens for the showers, 50 cents (two tokens) for three minutes. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Motorhome.

Sites were pretty close to each other, luckily we were in a pull through site which gave me more of a privacy feel than a back in. We had full utility hookups. Park staff were friendly although the front counter person at check in needed some people skills, lucky I dealt with that only at check in, and not see that person the rest of my stay. Place was kept up pretty well and park rangers made their presence known more so than other parks that I've stayed at, I'm thinking it was because of the 4th of July weekend and made sure no one set off fireworks at the park (makes sense). Walking the dunes towards the beach early in the morning, I got to see a coyote and a deer roaming around the dunes, both on seperate days. We camped at Ocean City State Park in a Tent Trailer.
