Ocean City State Park is a year-round, 170-acre camping park, featuring ocean beach, dunes and dense thickets of shore pine. Migratory birds may be viewed at the park, and beachcombing is a popular activity.
Nature of the Area
The area is part of the Pacific Flyway for migratory birds and is adjacent to the migratory route of gray whales and other sea mammals.

A creek stained various colors by algae and shore plants separates the beach from dunes. Wildflowers, including buttercups, wild strawberry and lupine color the beach grasses. Dense shore pine hugs tidelands and surrounds fresh and saltwater marshes. The park offers an excellent example of coastal wetlands and dune succession.

The area has an annual average rainfall of 100 inches.
History of the Area
Native Americans traveled over the flat and wide beach and early settlers carried supplies from Aberdeen to Minard's Landing by crossing the peninsula to Oyhut, traveling north on the beach. Although necessary for survival back then, fishing and clamming are now recreational pasttimes at the park.

June 7 Camping here for years by B
Between my family and my boyfriends we have been camping here for 30 yrs and its a great camping area, you can walk to the beach but not much good food in town and the staff where you check in are rude

July 25 First time there by La Iris
The campsite was great; nice and clean and near the beach. The only downfall was the weather. It is late July and the spots we reserved (45 & 46) were right under trees, so it stayed cool to very cold most of the visit. Next time I would pick a different area (60) as it seemed to get a lot of sun.
May 22 very close to beach
umm..like the park, very pretty but DID NOT like some of the staff at the entrance booth..was very rude and short with me and fellow camper behind me.. some of the park was blocked off and the paper they gave us to pick our campsite out was very confusing. we had all of our stuff set up and then had to move our entire campsite..luckily the one across from us was empty. because reservations were messed up but other than that i like the park and will be there on the fourth of july..but will get there super early or reserve a site.
April 26 Great park!! by Jennifer
We love this park, and have been camping here for the last 20+. Very family friendly!
April 22 great time by rmicha
i love camping here.
July 13 Great Park
If you like the ocean beach this is a very good choice. It is within walking distance of the beach but not right on it so you have protection from the wind. There are lots of trees so there is relative privacy for most of the sites. It is a short drive into Ocean Shores, which is the largest town in the area.
