“good for surfing and a walk on the beach”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

You can watch the surfers here (or surf if you do that). Nice picnic area and restrooms but no beach view. You have to go over the dunes. Interesting beach to walk as it is not all flat. Camping available.

“Camping at the coast”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

My wife and I have camped at S. Beach State Park many times, often taking the grandchildren. The last venture was with grandchildren and their parents. Great hiking trails and play areas for the whole family. A half mile walk to either the beach or the South Jetty on the Yaquina River to watch the boats come and go.

“One of the Best Oregon Beach Parks”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

This park has it all. There is great camping facilities. The day-use area has nice restrooms and easy access to the beach. There are also wonderful paved nature trails all over the park that are worth checking out.

“Scenic spot”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Wow, there are so many great parks on the Oregon shore and this is a super scenic one. There are lots of spots to get the perfect photo here and hopefully the crowds will be as light as they were in mid-October when we were there.
