Sights and Recreation
The crimson crush of cranberry bogs is this quiet region’s biggest claim to fame. Visitors can get a roadside tour of the local crop along the aptly named Cranberry Road, as well as Larkin and Turkey Roads. If the tour sparks your interest and you plan on driving farther south, be sure to check out the Cranberry Museum on the Long Beach Peninsula.
A mile south of Grayland on Highway 105, Grayland Beach State Park (off Midway Beach Rd., 888/226-7688, www.parks.wa.gov) has 7,450 feet of ocean frontage, 200 acres for picnicking and camping, and a self-guided nature trail through huckleberry, Sitka spruce, and lodgepole pine. This is a popular place to dig for clams. Grayland Beach also has 60 campsites, all with shower access and hookups for $20 ($7 extra for reservations), and is open year-round.
