Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Team

Located just south of the Yaquina Bay Jetty in Newport, South Beach State Park is an exceptional camping destination.  In addition to offering a great campground, the park features fishing off of the jetty, crabbing in Yaquina Bay, beach-combing and kayak tours at the nearby Beaver Creek State Natural Area (July 4th through Labor Day.  For reservations call 541.687.6590).  The full service campground includes 227 sites with electrical and water hook-ups, 60 spacious tent sites, three group sites, a hiker and biker camp and 27 yurts, more than any other Oregon state park.

Be sure to visit Oregon’s two premier marine education institutions, the Mark O. Hatfield Marine Science Center and the Oregon Coast Aquarium.  These are just outside the park and are great stops for children.
