Iron Springs Resort, Copalis Beach

The lowdown: Perching over the water just north of Ocean Shores in Copalis Beach (named after the Copalis Indian Tribe), Iron Springs Resort is your base camp for a coastal adventure.

The stay: Here you’ll find renovated cabins that hit just the right spot between rustic and modern: Flat-screen satellite TVs, Wi-Fi and Bose sound systems meet wood-burning stoves and well-stocked kitchens and decks. Guests get private beach access, along with a common firepit and clam cleaning area. The general store at the resort has you covered for anything you need.

The fun: Copalis Beach is one of the state’s most popular clam-digging venues, known for its delicious razor clams. During low tides in fall and winter, heading out to dig at night with lanterns is a one-of-a-kind experience! There are also sea stars, anemones and other tidepool critters to spot; along with fishing, hikes through the resort’s trails, bird watching and the 364-acre Griffiths-Priday State Park to explore.
