Ocean Park is located on the north end of the Long Beach Peninsula. Getting there is beautiful whether you follow Hwy 103 (Pacific Way) along the Pacific Ocean, or Sandridge Road, which parallels Willapa Bay.
Originally founded by the Methodist Church as a camp location, Ocean Park continues in the tradition of small seaside towns, with restaurants, family-owned businesses and resorts to welcome visitors.
Ocean Park was once a station on the Ilwaco Railway and Navigation Company, a narrow gauge railroad that ran along the Long Beach Peninsula from 1889 to 1930. One the oldest buildings in Pacific County is the Taylor Hotel building, built in 1887, currently in use as Adelaide’s cafe and bookstore, named after Adelaide Taylor, the wife of the original hotel owner.
The oldest building in Ocean Park is the Lamberson Cabin, built in 1883 by Buell Lamberson. The cabin has been kept in private family ownership through the generations for the use of Lamberson Descendants.
