Safari Association of Ilwaco is a membership RV park located off Sandridge Road in Ilwaco,
WA on the southern end of the popular Long Beach Peninsula. Safari Park originated in 1970
as a campground catering to fishermen and has grown into a gated park offering full hookups,
water, sewer, garbage service, cable TV, WIFI, and full-time caretakers. Safari Park also has a lodge
with office, kitchen, and large meeting area, along with a small library, a laundry room, and restrooms.
Additional restrooms and laundry facilities are also located throughout the park, as well as are several
children’s playgrounds. For fishermen, the park boasts a brand new fish house. Besides fishing,
members enjoy kite flying, playing golf, taking advantage of the many festivals held throughout
the year on the Long Beach Peninsula, and driving and playing on the “Longest Beach in Washington”.
The park has 322 sites, all of which are membership sites. The annual dues are less than $1,000 per year,
billed semi-annually. Members pay for their own electricity and propane, if used, but all other amenities
are included in the dues. Ownership of each lot belongs to the park, but members are
welcome to use their lots as often as they would like. Most lots contain park models, trailers, or
fifth-wheels, and a few empty lots exist for members who want to bring their rigs each time they visit.
