CEI: Oysters and Willapa Bay
A discussion of oysters and the environment in Willapa Bay by the Competitive Enterprise Institute. The slant is that private interests, such as oystermen, are more effective at preserving the environment than government. Whether you buy this slant or not, the report does present a nice overview of Willapa Bay's oyster industry and the environmental challenges it faces.

Washington Water Trails
Larry Warnberg, a Pacific County kayaker, successfully spearheaded a drive to have a water trail designated for Willapa Bay. The water trail is essentially 13 put-in and take-out spots and campsites around Willapa Bay that can be used by kayakers and canoeists. Among other thing, this page discusses the special features of kayaking in this shallow bay with its large tidal range and sometimes dangerous currents and stormy weather.

Web site for Willapa Bay KOA
This KOA campground is located in Bay Center. The Bush Pioneer Park also has camping spots. The town of Bay Center currently has a store in town as well, so the camping is picturesque and convenient.
