Situated next to the Yaquina Bay Bridge, South Beach State Park begins in south Newport and stretches several miles down the Oregon coast. This historic park offers access to miles of broad, sandy ocean beach and trails for walking and bicycling. Located just south of the South Jetty, this is your gateway to exploring Newport.
The paved Jetty Trail provides a perfect place to jog or ride a bicycle. Our equestrian trail to the beach begins at the South Jetty equestrian trailhead. Park next to the trailhead and enjoy a beautiful sunset by horseback!
A playground area, horse-shoe pits, and a 9-hole disc golf course are near the campground area. Stop by the Hospitality Center to get maps, brochures, purchase souvenirs or camp items, or to check out free discs and horse-shoes.
Enjoy exploring the freshwater marsh and forested uplands of Beaver Creek Natural Area, 7 miles south of the park. Five miles of trails wind through the marsh and up into through the forest and meadows, showcasing views of the ocean on a clear day. Bring your kayak or canoe for a 3 mile paddle through the marsh, or join one of the guided tours offered July through Labor Day. Register at our Park Store events site.
Other activities around the park include fishing, crabbing, boating, surfing and beach combing. Attractions nearby include the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, Yaquina Head Lighthouse, and marine life exhibits at the Hatfield Marine Science Center and the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
