Beverly Beach is popular for a reason! Like magic, a well-known walkway goes under the highway and emerges to the long expanse of sandy beach extending from Yaquina Head (you can see the lighthouse from here) to the headlands of Otter Rock. When the weather cooperates, kites color the air and whip in the wind. Bring a bucket and build a sand castle! Surfers often head to the north beach, while folks looking for fossils head south. A few steps from the ocean you'll find the forest-sheltered campground. Giant, wind-sculpted trees and nurse logs surround the campsites strung along pebbly Spencer Creek. There is a Visitors Information Center located near the registration booth where you can also purchase books,souvenirs or educational toys. The children's playground is located next to the program area. The picnic area is a grassy, tree-lined spot protected from summer winds by a charming yurt group meeting hall. It's hard to believe all this is a few minutes drive from the Oregon Coast Aquarium, Yaquina Head and other prime attractions.

Fun place to visit often for lunch great view catch the surfers and feed the squirrels
I visited this sea cave during a trip to Oregon. My brother who lives there stopped off as we were travelling up the coast. The location is fenced off for safety and natural preservation. I feel that had I been able to venture down to the water the experience could have been more magical, but I also understand that my life would have been in danger. Picnic tables offer a chance to gaze at the sunset. The sea-side gets very windy and surfers below take advantage of that. Oregon has such a bitchin' coast line; it truely can't be beat.
Love this campground! It separates the tent sites from RVs. RV spots seem hard to come by, but we haven't had an issue yet reserving one of our top 5 tent sites for the night, so it's a non-issue. Yes, it's a State Park campground, so the sites are not super-wild, but it's a great, beautiful location to enjoy the area. The State Park comes with its conveniences - hot showers, available ice, wood for fires, and toilets. There are a couple of nature trails, but as has been said, most people seem to spend their time at the beach or enjoying the area. This is our go-to spot when weekending at the coast. If you look around, it will be hard to find a better camping spot as good on the coast.
THE TRAIL I FOUND WAS WALKING THE BEACH ON EITHER SIDES OF THE PUNCH BOWL.
THERE ARE SIGNS THAT SAY DANGER TO NOT GO ON OTHER SIDE OF THE GATE ???
BUT THOSE THAT ARE YOUNGER AND ADVENTUROUS ,,, JUST DO IT IF YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE A BETTER VIEW. BE CAREFUL THOUGH ROCKS ARE SLIPPERY.
ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE FENCE YOU CAN CRAWL UNDER. AND HIKE DOWN THE SIDE. BUT WHEN YOU NEAR THE BOTTOM BE VERY CAREFUL!!! Or you will be sliding the rest of the way down. ALSO SMALL CAVE DoWn at the bottom when its Low tide. :)
This is a pretty nice campground considering it's a state park, on the beach non the less. There are some hiking trails in the campground, but most people go hike the beach. Individual sites are nice, especially the ones for tent campers only.
Beverly Beach State Park offers tent camping, RV camping, and Hiker/Biker camping. There is a day use area that leads to the beach. This is a beautiful spot for beach lovers and beach combers, however, for the rest of the world, there isn't much more. There are no vehicles allowed on the beach and there is no off roading. The hiking trail is a pathway that leads no where.
During the summer season it is HEAVILY crowded and the park staff recommend you make reservations 6-9 months in advance due to the popularity of coastal travelers.
As far as public coastal camping is concerned, it doesn't get much better, but as far as wilderness camping, well it falls WAY short. It is a good place to stay instead of paying for a motel during a day trip. But let's face it, most people's idea of camping no days involves a portable house with DIrect TV. They want to leave the house without leaving the comfort of the house.
One of my favorite areas along the Oregon Coast is Beverly Beach. There are a lot of campsites, for tents, and campers. Beverly Beach also offers spots for motorhomes, and those looking to enjoy a night or two in a yurt. I enjoy the campsite for it's closeness to the beach, the spacious sites, showers and restrooms, as well as playground for the kids and a amphitheater that shows nature videos on set evenings. A hiking trail along the creek, runs behind part of the campgrounds. A short path under the Highway leads you down to the beach from the campgrounds. Affordable price for tents and yurts alike.
