Bring your binoculars and your camera: Beaver Creek State Natural Area is a place to see nature up close. Part of Brian Booth State Park, the lush marsh and upland forest include 5-plus miles of hiking trails and tranquil, flat-water paddling. River otter, Roosevelt elk, deer, coyote and the occasional black bear and cougar are at home here, and the marsh is critical habitat for Coho salmon, cutthroat trout and winter steelhead. 

Welcome Center

Located 1 mile east of Ona Beach and Highway 101, the center offers a museum, observation deck, picnic tables, and short trail to views overlooking the marsh. The welcome center is open noon – 4 p.m. Thursday – Monday; the observation deck and grounds are open daily.
