The Pasagshak State Park provides a spectacular setting for anglers, beachcombers, hikers, and explorers. There is developed camping for both tent and RV campers, a boat launch, two modern pit toilets, and numerous picnic sites.
The beach makes for excellent walking, beachcombing, and wildlife viewing. In fact, this is one of the best spots to scan the ocean for grey whales on their annual migration from Baja to the Bering Sea. The beach and wetlands are home to sea bird colonies, eagles, and—in the winter—waterfowl. Seals and dolphins cruise the waters, and brown bears can be spotted alongside the river.
