Yachats State Recreation Area

Near Newport, Oregon, United States

This small-town park with a big view is just a short stroll from central Yachats down Ocean View Road. Watch for whales and storming waves from the easily-accessible viewing platform. On calmer days, take the steep path down to the rocky intertidal area, where low tide exposes craggy crevices and pools full of sealife. Pick up a Tide Table in town to track the best time of day for exploring.

History

The park was acquired by purchase from private owners and gifts from Lincoln County and L. P. Gill, between 1928-1986. Yachats Park protects a public fishing location and also preserves the fish spawning sand along the beach. This rocky, ocean-front park, is popular with anglers and day-use visitors. Yachats is an Indian word which is thought to mean "at the foot of the mountain." The steep face of Cape Perpetua rises just south of Yachats.
