Hidden in a forest between Cape Foulweather and Yaquina Head, Beverly Beach State Park’s creekside campground is one of the state’s largest. Some campsites and the park’s day-use area are just steps away from miles of ocean beach extending from Yaquina Head to Otter Rock. The park is central to excellent whale watching viewpoints, tidepools teeming with sea life, the Oregon Coast Aquarium, and shops and restaurants in Newport.
A few steps from the ocean you'll find the forest-sheltered campground. Giant, wind-sculpted trees and nurse logs surround the campsites situated along pebbly Spencer Creek. A Welcome Center located near the registration booth sells firewood and a few souvenirs. A playground is located next to the program area. The day-use picnic area is a grassy spot protected from summer winds. The day-use area also contains a reservable group meeting yurt.
Land along Spencer Creek was first acquired by the Highway Commission in 1942 - 1943 and subsequently transferred to State Parks. Additional properties were acquired from various owners by purchases, up to 1969.
