Beach Wheelchairs Update

Two beach adaptive wheelchairs are now available for use in Manzanita, one for adults, one for children. Chairs are available to check out at Manzanita Visitors Center, Wednesday through Sunday, 11 am to 4 pm. To check one out or inquire about availability, call us at (503).812.5510 or email We highly recommend reserving this service in advance as they are very popular, especially on weekends. We will try our best to answer the many inquiries we receive, but please be aware that simply leaving us a message does not indicate that you have a reservation. Wheelchairs are free to use but we do accept donations for their upkeep.

Dan Haag
Born and raised in the great white north of Minnesota, Dan Haag felt the pull of the north Oregon Coast in the early 90s. Finding that rain never needed to be shoveled, he married an Oregon girl and settled in Manzanita, where he works as director of the Manzanita Visitors Center. He is also a freelance writer whose work has appeared in a variety of state and national publications. He spends his free time wandering the area’s many trails, supporting the Oregon wine and beer industry, perusing coastal bookstores, and chasing his black Labrador, Lilo, along the beach.
