Beaver Creek State Natural Area is located a few miles east of Highway 101 on N. Beaver Creek Road in Seal Rock. It is about 6 miles south of Newport.

For many years, it was a working cattle ranch and is a wonderful lush area, with many birds.  There are limited trails to hike so bring your binoculars and boots. This new park offers paddling, bird watching, walks in the marshland and hiking in upland meadows. Put in your kayak or canoe at the Ona Beach launch just off Highway 101, across from Ona Beach State Park. The two-mile paddle meanders up the Beaver Creek valley with views of the surrounding Sitka spruce, Doubglas fir and alder forested hills. Look for beaver, river otter, muskrat and nutria.

When hiking, please be aware that there is private property all through this area and do not trespass.
