Our Third Annual Quaker Music Fest 2012 falls on the last weekend of the Kite Festival. This is a magical time for people who enjoy the ocean, sand, blue skies and KITES. Our Long Beach Peninsula hosts people from all over the United States, Canada and as far as Europe and Asia during this time.
Lodging is usually secured a year before each Kite Festival. As of January 2012, there were a few remaining resources in our area.
Please check with our Visitors Center to get up-to-date information on lodging. Not only do they list all lodging accommodations, they also keep an up-to-date list on cancellations and possible room availability. It is our understanding that on Wednesday before Kite Festival Weekend, the Visitors Center begins to receive cancellations from local motels. Their phone number is: 360.642.2400/800.451.2542
Harbor View Motel in Nahcotta, offers clean rooms with kitchenettes at very modest prices. As of Feb 01st, they still had some rooms available. Nahcotta is about 11 miles from Long Beach, Seaview and the Kite Festival.
Update: 07/23/2012: If you are not a camper, you may want to consider lodging in Astoria, which is about a 25 minute drive from the Peninsula Church Center
Wild Wood Campground is a private campground near Long Beach. They are about 1 mile from the Peninsula Church Center. They have improved their facility and offer both RV and tent camping. They do have showers. Update: 07/23/2012: Wild Wood Campground can accommodate campers in their “overflow” area. You do not need a reservation to use this area. Fee: $12/night. You will have access to restrooms with HOT showers. The overflow area does not have fire pits or picnic tables. They are aware that last minute camping Quakers may arrive.
There is a KOA west of Chinook, which is only minutes from Long Beach, Seaview and Illwaco.
Washington State offers camping at Camp Disappointment. This is a large area with wonderful vistas. It is only minutes from Ilwaco, Seaview and Long Beach. Some people believe that the best pizza on the Peninsula is served up from a mobile stand in the Park.
There are quite a few vacation rentals listed on VRBO for this area. This is a good resource to utilize, as VRBO (Vacation Rental by Owner) has rentals all over the world.
Due to our small number in our worship group, we have some limited ability to lodge with Friends. Most of what we can offer is space to set up your tent with access to restrooms. Please feel free to contact us to see if we have any space available.
