Lot's of parking, good picnic areas, main drag down to a great beach with your kids and/or pets (keep them on leash and pick up doggy poo with bags provided)

Great beach for those who need easy access. Long sandy beach with driftwood and some shells. Great to walk. Watch all the boats crab in Alsea Bay. Beautiful

Such a quick/easy way to be out of your car and on the beach! Another beautiful stop for a quick stretch your legs walk on the sand while enjoying the view and fresh air! Only wish we'd had more time, but more Oregon coastline stops awaited!

This little day use park just south of Waldport is popular with locals as it offers easy access to the beach. My husband and I often recognize the cars parked here - sometimes folks are eating lunch enjoying the nice view. You can see the ocean waves from the parking lot, so it's a great place to come when it's raining!

There is adequate paved parking, but no separate spaces for RV's that are towing, but there is room for larger rigs to park on the perimeter.

To get to the beach, walk down a paved footpath. It's not real steep and is only about 50 yards to the the level sand. There are a couple of tiny sand dunes between the parking area and the beach, but by staying on the paved path you don't have to slog in the loose sand!

There are restrooms and a few picnic tables with a great ocean view.
