You’ll find the Fogarty Creek State Recreation Site on Highway 101 between Lincoln City and Depoe Bay. The destination offers two entrances, north and south, on the east side of the highway.

At Fogarty Creek you’ll find numerous picnic tables and a covered picnic shelter, wooden footbridges leading down to the coastline, dramatic, rocky cliffs along the beach, and numerous tide pools. The destination is also good for birdwatching among the shore pine, alder, western hemlock, and Sitka spruce trees.

A profound concept originally envisioned by governor Oswald West, in 1967 the Oregon legislature ultimately realized his vision of making the entire Oregon Coast forever open to the public in a piece of landmark legislation titled the Oregon Beach Bill, officially making all 363 miles public land. "The People's Coast" is truly a one-of-a-kind coastline, a unique blend of mountains and rocky stacks, towering old growth forests, marine sanctuaries, tide pools and kelp forests, charming towns, historic fishing communities, world-class golfing, breweries, and simply jaw-dropping scenic beaches.
