WA-OceanBeaches-NCopalis Beach is located on the North Beach area of the Pacific Coast of Washington State.  Copalis is 7 mi. north of Ocean Shores and Grays Harbor on State Highway-109.  Grays Harbor is shown in red on the Washington State Counties map below.

 

“Home of the razor clam”

The ocean beach at Copalis is wide and sandy.  Copalis beach is known as “The Home of the Razor Clam.”

 

When the Razor Clam season is open the population soars and the beaches get crowded.  The year round population of Copalis Beach is around 350 but during summer and razor clam season the population increases to around 1,500.

 

The Razor clam is prolific here.  During 1947 and 1948 commercial diggers harvested more than a million (1,000,000) pounds of bi-valves (clams) from this beach and there were still lots of clams for the tourists to dig.

 

The Beach

The main draw to this area isn’t the clam, it is the beach.  You can drive for miles on the beach here.  The surf and the sand offer a Mecca for beach lovers.

 

The community of Copalis was settled in the 1890’s before there were roads to the area.  Everything needed to build the community was either found locally or shipped to Oyehut, WA by boat and then hauled up the beach to Copalis.

WA-Counties01-GraysHarbor

There is also danger here.  This beach has hosted the hulls of probably a hundred ships and boats that have run aground in Pacific storms.  Everything from four-masted schooners to modern steel ships have ended up on this beach.

 

In recent years winter storm watching vacations have been becoming more and more popular and this is a great place to see the high surf roar in on the beach in the winter.

 

Copalis Beach Airport

Located at the mouth of the Copalis River, this is the most unique airport in Washington State.  The runway is the wet sand from the Copalis river north for about one mile.  This is the only place in the state an aircraft can land on the beach.  The down side is there is no runway at high tide.  It is reported that up to 75 aircraft have been parked at the airport at one time, probably during razor clam season.
