Fogarty Creek State Recreation area offers beach access, and opportunities for picnicking, fishing, hiking, beachcombing and viewing scenery.
Walk the wooden footbridges arching through the Sitka spruce, western hemlock, shore pine and alder forest. At the cliff-rimmed beach, a lazy creek flows into the sea, cutting through an enchanting scenic ocean cove. This park has some of the best bird-watching and tidepooling on the coast.
Vital Stats: A fee is charged for access to all state park day-use areas.
: The Oregon coast receives abundant rainfall, mostly between October and April. July and August bring the best chance for clear days. Summer temperatures are normally moderate and almost never hot. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long.
Location: Fogarty Creek is located on the Central Coast, off U.S. Highway 101, 2 miles north of Depoe Bay.
