You’ll find the Fogarty Creek State Recreation Site on Highway 101 between Lincoln City and Depoe Bay. The destination offers two entrances, north and south, on the east side of the highway.

At Fogarty Creek you’ll find numerous picnic tables and a covered picnic shelter, wooden footbridges leading down to the coastline, dramatic, rocky cliffs along the beach, and numerous tide pools. The destination is also good for birdwatching among the shore pine, alder, western hemlock, and Sitka spruce trees.
