Bay Center / Willapa Bay KOA Journey

Situated in a quiet, natural forest setting on picturesque Willapa Bay, this is just the place to leave your daily life behind-and hit the beach!

Situated in a quiet, natural forest setting on picturesque Willapa Bay, this is just the place to leave your daily life behind -  and enjoy the tidal bay! A scenic nature trail leads from the campground right to the beach, where you'll enjoy bird-watching and beachcombing. Swim in the tidal bay, rake for delicious steamer clams (license required) and work up an appetite for the area's famous Willapa Bay oysters. You're close to lighthouses and the Pacific.  Play a game of volleyball, basketball, badminton or horseshoes. Enjoy ice cream socials and family activities every weekend (Memorial Day through Labor Day). Then finish your perfect day with a beautiful sunset over the bay. Max pull thru: 70 feet. Your hosts: Joel and Lydia Fodor.
There is a maximum of 6 people on an RV site. There is a max of 4 people on a Tent site.
Tent sites accommodate 1 tent and 1 car per site.
As a courtesy to all our guests, we do not accept arrivals after 11pm.
The steamer clam beds are reserved for the use of registered campers only. Visitors on the campground must register at the office and pay the visitor fee of $5.00 per person. Visitors may not be permitted on the campground if there is not capacity to accommodate them. There is a max of 6 people per RV site/ 4 per tent site, including visitors.
WINTER BEACH ACCESS - During Winter Months (November through March), we have to close our beach access. This is due to very high tides that bring large logs and other debris that change our coast line every year. We want to make sure our guests stay safe. Thank you for understanding.

Loved it. Helpful staff. Great spot. Nice walk to beach, but steeps stairs down and mud on path (in case you have mobility issues).

Our family had a great time staying here. They had games for the kids on the weekends and it created a real community feel. We tried the clamming and it was pretty fun. We will definitely be back!

This was our first trip of the year and our first time at this KOA. We were greeted by very friendly staff upon our arrival, and a quick and easy check in. Campsite 49 was perfect for us and had plenty of room between us and the neighboring sites. The site was level enough that we only needed one leveling block on the drivers side. A quick plug in of Power/Water/Sewer/Cable and we were ready for the weekend. We had purchased firewood ahead of time and it was delivered to our site shortly after we had finished hooking up. We explored the campground and enjoyed the whimsical decorations and the short walk to the beach. The sunset on the beach was wonderful, and we got back to our RV just before the next rain storm hit. We met with staff members several times during our stay and we can not express how wonderful the staff really are. They are warm, cheerful, caring, and pleasant to interact with. We cant thank them enough for making our stay so enjoyable. We are looking forward to coming back soon.
