There are beautiful views from this park. We just happened to learn about it by looking on Google Maps otherwise we would not have known about it. We were searching for a place for the kids to play on the Dunes and so we could watch the sunset and this was perfect.

For a totally different landscape, cross the Siuslaw bridge going south and quickly watch for South Jetty Road on our right 0and turn right. It will weave about 4 miles in toward the ocean and through the sand dunes. It ends at a rocky lot where you can park and either climb the dunes to the water, or take a... More

We had a great time climbing the dune to get to the beach. Once there, we were the only people in site. Lots of small parking lots, many with restrooms. Not the cleanest though.

This is a good place. A bit of a drive along Sand Dune Road takes you to the end, although there's a couple places along the way to park and head over the hilly dunes. At the end is a large beach area. We walked from the parking area prior to the end to hike over some hilly dunes, then... More

Very nice area with sand dunes and beach grasses. Fishing from the jetty is popular. Nice beach for summer swimming or surfing. Area is well kept.

The most beautiful of beaches. Waves to get lost in. Miles of Dunes for a back drop. Don't forget to check out the South Jetty wall the largest of sand dunes I've ever seen

Growing up in Oregon I have fond memories of the south jetty that may cloud my perception, but in my opinion it's one of the most beautiful coastlines anywhere. Love running up and down the sand dunes, collecting sea shells, walking out on the jetty, watching the brave surfers in the cold water. Make no mistake this is not a... More

Love the drive out to the end of this park. Just don't get suckered into staying at the so called resort. It is a logging site gone bad.
