Set between the ocean and the bay, Nehalem Bay State Park is situated on a 4-mile sand spit. The campground sits among shore pines, just a sand dune away from the beach.
A forested 1.8 mile long bike path provides a breathtaking view of the bay. You may see deer and elk grazing and a variety of birds. Kayaking, crabbing, fishing and clamming are popular activities.
Two day-use areas offer access to bay or ocean with restrooms and picnic areas with fire rings. Bayside day-use includes a boat ramp. The boat docks are seasonal (typically mid-May to mid-October). Please check with park ahead of time.
A life jacket loaner station is on site with life jackets of various sizes. Wearing a life jacket, and making sure it fits properly, saves lives.
