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.

A fall day at Brian Booth State Park found the beach deserted. Like so many of the Oregon coast beaches, Ona Beach is long and wide with gentle surf and lots of space for dogs to run.

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.
