Fort Canby State Park
Recreation - Activities at the park include camping, picnicking, beach combing, surfing, jetty and lake fishing, heritage site visitation, hiking, clamming and boating.
Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region. The Cascades split the state and alter weather patterns. Western Washington is temperate, due to the coastal geography. The water is a stabilizing force for the climate, making extreme temperatures rare. The area receives large amounts of rainfall from Pacific storms and some snow during winter months.
Fort Canby State Park , in south coastal Washington, is located in Pacific County 2.5 miles southwest of Ilwaco off Highway 101.
