Klipsan Beach Clam Cam

Welcome to the Klipsan Beach Approach!

The Klipsan Beach Clam Cam is located at the beach approach at 225th and Highway 103/Pacific Way in Klipsan Beach. The webcam looks out over the Pacific Ocean, about midway on the Long Beach Peninsula. During razor clam season, you can see clammers digging along our beautiful beach. Here’s a closer look at clam digging:

Klipsan Beach is historically known for the Klipsan Beach Life Saving Station. The station’s name was originally Ilwaco Beach and only later became known as Klipsan Station. The station was one of several assigned to protect the area known as the Graveyard of the Pacific, aptly named for its 2,000-plus shipwrecks.

The Klipsan Beach Life Saving Station is now privately owned and can be rented. Other great places to stay in the vicinity are the Ocean Park Resort, Klipsan Beach Cottages, the DoveShire Bed and Breakfast, Shakti Cove Cottages, and Westgate Cabins & RV Park. Loomis Lake State Park is nearby.

Jimella and Nanci’s Market Café, the renowned creation of Jimella Lucas and Nanci Main, matriarchs of Pacific Northwest locavore dining, is located within a few blocks of the webcam. Previously they owned the famed Ark Restaurant in Nahcotta, and their current endeavor is on the itinerary of anyone that seeks out fresh, locally sourced, expertly prepared cuisine.

In addition to being a historically significant area for the Peninsula, Klipsan Beach holds a special place in the hearts of many. Countless families have created precious memories at the beach vacation rental homes, summer camps, RV parks, and summer cabins in the area.

A big thank you to Pacific Realty for allowing us to showcase this webcam.
