McVay Rock State Recreation Site

Near Brookings, Oregon, United States

McVay is a well-hidden park noted for surf fishing, clamming, whale watching, and plenty of space to walk on the beach. The large lawn has a nine-hole disc golf course overlooking the ocean.

The park is elevated above the ocean.  As you walk along the edge, you'll often have eye-to-eye encounters with the seabirds catching the updrafts from the beach.  A steep, rocky path leads to the beach.

McVay is also home to one of the "off leash" dog parks in the Brookings area.
