About Beachside State Recreation Site

In the ocean rumbling passageway between the inviting town of Yachats and the recreation-rich Waldport area is your beachcombing, seal watching, sunset adoring getaway. At Beachside State Recreation Site, you can make a day-stop to play in tide-pools or break up a 101 camping road trip with a night in a tent beside the sea. In the quaint nook of Beachside you are near interpretive centers, lighthouses, flora-flourishing hiking trails, aquariums, and all sorts of Central Coast recreation that will leave your bones humming with a sense of wave-fed clarity, of seal-inspired giddyness, of Oregon Coast wonder.

History of Beachside State Recreation Site

The land was purchased from various owners in 1944 to provide public access to a large ocean beach at Big Creek, and to preserve native shore pine and vegetation. The park was originally named Big Creek State Park but this was changed by the Highway Commission upon public request in 1957, ending confusion with other similarly named public areas.
