Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Pro Contributor

Brian Booth State Park, formally Ona Beach and Beaver Creek State Natural Area, is a great place to explore the sandy beach as well as the marsh environment on the Central Oregon Coast. The park was renamed in 2013 to honor Brian Booth, the original chairperson of the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission.  

The Beaver Creek Welcome Center is open daily and is a great place to start your visit. It’s located a mile east of Highway 101. The friendly volunteers can help answer questions and give suggestions for hiking or kayaking. Recent wildlife sightings are listed along with the tides and weather forecasts.

The park includes beach access, a large day use picnic area, restrooms, a boat launch for non-motorized boats, and 5 miles of hiking trails in the marsh and coastal forest. With so many options and easy access, there’s something for everyone.

Guided kayak tours are available July through September. For more information contact the Beaver Creek Welcome Center at 541.563.6413.
