In the North Beach area of coastal Washington state, you'll find the small town of Moclips. Moclips is one of the five communities of the North Beach. The other four communities are Ocean City, Copalis Beach, Pacific Beach and Seabrook.

Here you can visit Analyde Gap where the final scene in the 1974 John Wayne film McQ was filmed, go horseback riding and spend the day at a kite contest or sand sculpture competition.

The indigenous inhabitants of the area were members of the Quinault tribe along the coast north of Grays Harbor and the Upper and Lower Chehalis tribes of the lower Chehalis River drainage. Other groups included the Copalis, Wynoochee, and Humptulips subtribes of the Upper Chehalis subtribe, and the Satsop subtribe of the Lower Chehalis. The area's indigenous people lived in permanent villages along rivers and lakes.
