Westport Light State Park is a public recreation area of 560 acres (230 ha) on the Pacific Ocean in Grays Harbor County, Washington. It sits adjacent to the historic Grays Harbor Light, the tallest lighthouse in Washington. The park was combined with the former Westhaven State Park and an additional 270-acre (110 ha) parcel that had been under development as a golf course in 2016.[2] Park activities include hiking, fishing, beachcombing, and birdwatching.[3]
