Nehalem Bay State Park

Scenes from our early walk down to the beach at Nehalem Bay State Park.

The tent camping at this park is ho-hum (lots of people around and nothing too terribly special or secluded about the campsites), but the yurts look awesome. We reserved too late to get a yurt, they were all full up. You can also camp with your horse here, if you are lucky enough to be able to do such things. The park has a 1.75 mile walking trail and recreational activities also include crabbing and fishing. It’s just about 15 minutes or so from Oswald West State Park, whose campsites have been closed since 2009, and where there are some great hiking opportunities.
