Located 86 miles west of Portland along the north Oregon Coast, Nehalem Bay State Park features a campground, two day-use areas and a variety of activities for the whole family.
Situated among a sea of shore pines, the campground borders rolling dunes that separate the campground from the beach. A walk over the dunes and you’re at the beach building sand castles, flying a kite or relaxing to the sound of the ocean. Beach-combing can produce special rewards – treasures that include agates, shells, and occasionally glass floats.
A forested 1.8 mile long bike path provides a breathtaking view of the bay for recreation and wildlife enthusiasts. Along this route, and in the campground, you may see deer grazing, a herd of elk, a coyote crossing the road and a variety of birds. Kayaking, crabbing, fishing, and clamming are also popular past times.
Park features include a 2,400 foot airstrip that offers the unique opportunity of a fly-in camp. A hiker-biker camp is ready for hikers and bikers traveling up and down the coast. Yurts are available as an alternative camping experience. Primitive horse camp sites offer horse enthusiasts a place to camp with several miles of trails and beach to explore. A horse concession is located in the beach-side day-use area during the summer months.
