Westport Union-Landing State Beach covers more than three miles of rugged and scenic coastline, with 86 campsites available in three campgrounds on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The magnificent vistas, sunsets, and tree-covered mountains provide an inspiring backdrop to the park and challenge both amateur and professional photographers. The park was named for two early-day communities. Westport, a sawmill town, is still in existence, and Union Landing, which now consists of only a few buildings. Both settlements were famous for supplying lumber and railroad ties, and Tan Oak bark to the schooners that anchored offshore.
