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.

Amenities & Features

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.
