The campground will remain closed through at least Sept. 7, 2020. We apologize for the disruption. Due to a revenue shortfall, we don’t have enough staff to keep all parks open this summer. Please consider visiting an open campground — a list is on our status map, and details about this decision are on the COVID-19 response page.
A few miles south of Waldport and north of Yachats on the central coast, this small, exquisite destination campground is right alongside miles of broad, sandy beach that makes the park perfect for kite flying and whale watching. Every campsite is mere seconds from the beach, which makes the park perfect for watching storms and sunsets.
Beachside is an excellent mid-point stop as you take a jaunt on the coast. Within 30 miles in either direction, you'll find visitor centers, tide pools, hiking and driving tours, three lighthouses, crabbing, clamming, fishing, aquarium and science centers.
This is a seasonal park and campground that is open from March 15 - November 1, weather dependent. Please call the South Beach office for more information during the off-season: 541-867-7451

The land was purchased from various owners in 1944 to provide public access to a large ocean beach at Big Creek, and to preserve native shore pine and vegetation. The park was originally named Big Creek State Park but this was changed by the Highway Commission upon public request in 1957, ending confusion with other similarly named public areas.
