What to Do at
Beverly Beach State Park

The park provides easy access to miles of sandy beach along the Pacific Ocean coastline. Here, you can explore the tide pools, surf, or beach comb, and it is flat and wide, making it a popular spot to play frisbee or fly kites. If you plan to stay overnight, the campground is situated along Spencer Creek, and many sites offer ocean views. On the other hand, during a day visit, you can pack a lunch and eat in the park's picnic area, which is in a grassy spot sheltered from the wind by large trees.

Inside Beverly Beach State Park

There’s plenty to keep you occupied along this special stretch of beach. Here are some of the most popular activities inside the state park.

Hiking and biking are great ways to see the park, both on its forested trails and along its sandy oceanside expanses. Follow a walkway from the campground under the highway for direct beach access -- you’ll even have a view of the Yaquina Head lighthouse.

Playgrounds are installed to keep the kids happy and help mom and dad rest easy once bedtime comes.

Fishing is a popular way to pass the time -- and snag some free dinner to cook up on the grill while you’re at it. Be sure you have all necessary Oregon licensure.

Surfing is another opportunity to get a first-hand experience of the ocean, though you’ll want to bring a wetsuit -- the northern Pacific is cold!

Fishing Fishing

Fishing along the surf is excellent at the park, and anglers can catch rockfish, lingcod, herring, and surfperch from the shore. The best time for fishing in Spencer Creek is in the winter months when salmon and steelhead travel up the stream from the ocean. You can angle for brown and brook trout in the creek year-round.

Hiking Hiking

The park's 1.5-mile Spencer Creek Loop Trail is popular for people looking for a short hike or walking laps. The views of the Pacific Ocean, especially at sunset, are stunning from the trail's high points, so don't forget to take some photos. The route starts at the welcome center, winds through tall trees, follows a stream, and has a section close to the ocean before you return to where you began.

Stargazing Stargazing

The picnic area is a great place to set up your telescope, or you can bring a blanket and set up on the beach to enjoy the park's clear night skies. Astronomy buffs may want to plan their trip for August when the Perseid Meteor Shower takes place.

Flora and Fauna

Aside from the whales, sea otters, and other ocean life you can spot from the coast, most wildlife viewing in Beverly Beach State Park centers around birds. The Audubon Society lists more than 100 species that live in and around Beverly Beach State Park, but the most common you will see include gulls, plovers, grebes, Pacific loons, surfbirds, and the spotted sandpiper. For avid birders, the Audubon Society provides checklists for the area and asks that if you spot any birds that are not on the list, you report the sightings. You will see a variety of flora when you visit the park. Along Spencer Creek, ferns, skunk cabbage, and other freshwater plants are abundant. While hiking, you will be shaded by hemlock and spruce trees. Closer to the ocean, you will see California huckleberry and various species of swordferns.

Geocaching Geocaching

You can participate in geocaching at all the Oregon state parks along the ocean. The Beverly Beach State Park geocache concerns fossils and rocks, and you're supposed to photograph yourself with what you find.

Swimming Swimming

While you can swim at the beach, you should be aware that the water is cold and only rises to slightly above 50 degrees in the summer. However, it can be refreshing on a hot day, and many people choose to wade in to cool off.
