About South Beach State Park

The sandy amplitude of South Beach extends from Newport down the coast and nestles near the elegant arc of the Yaquina Bay Bridge. Enjoy nature trails, beach combing excursions, kayak tours, sunsets on horseback, lighthouse lore and bicycling on the jetty. Check out the renowned Oregon Coast Aquarium, camp in a village of yurts (the largest selection in any Oregon State Park) and find fresh finned catches, crabs and clams for an oceanside dinner!

Stopped here with a friend as we traveled up the coast. Campsite was clean, quiet and about a quarter mile from the beach. Bathrooms have showers if you need them and rangers were available for questions. Great trails for walking, biking, running, etc.. Great stop along the coast.

History of South Beach State Park

The 498 acres of this park combines two areas once separately maintained, South Beach Wayside and South Newport State Park. The land was acquired by gift, exchange and purchase between 1933 and 1970. Gifts were received from Edith M. Bowman, Robert and Cherie Kiewel, Lincoln County and W. J. and Janet Wineberg Bay. The lands were obtained to protect the south bridge area from encroachment and also to provide public access to the beach.
