One of the special things about this bay is the tides. The tide comes in and goes out twice every day.
Clamming, digging for muscles and oysters is allowed on this bay as long as you have a license. The oysters, however, must be shucked on the beach, leaving the shells there since the babies are attached to the shell.
The Thousand Trails park in Birch Bay is well run, and the spaces are wide. When we arrived, the place was packed, mostly by RVs from British Columbia. As the days rolled by, and people moved on ahead of the weather, we felt like we almost had the place tou ourselves.
