Nehalem Bay is a wonderfully buffered estuary in Tillamook County, formed by the Nehalem River as it makes its way to the Pacific. When the area was first settled by Europeans in the 1800s, Nehalem Bay was twice its current size; water diversions to create farmland and topsoil runoff have shrunk it to its present dimensions. The calm waters of this forested bay are especially popular with kayakers, crabbers and birdwatchers. Nehalem Bay is a point of departure for off-shore anglers. In July and August, salmon anglers focus on the bay itself, targeting chinook returning to the river; coho (silver) salmon return to the bay a bit later.

North Coast Intertidal Areas:

Three Graces Between Rockaway and Garibaldi:<\/strong> The massive, stately rocks at Garibaldi signal some great tide pooling on this shoreline just on the inside of Tillamook Bay. You’ll have to cross the train tracks and the massive rip rap, and these only show up at fairly low tides.

There are no more tide pools to be found until you get to Oceanside, some 10 miles south of here, on the other side of the bay. Some may be found at Bayocean, at the beginning of the spit going through Tillamook Bay, but only at really low tides.

Barview Jetty and Nedonna Beach are all excellent places to find tide pools at low tide:<\/strong>
This rocky area is located just inside the mouth of Tillamook Bay.The intertidal area is small, but offers large boulders, which provide habitat for many common intertidal species.Parking is limited, and visitors must cross a railroad right-of-way to access the intertidal area.<\/p>","post_name":"tide-pools","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.6134","lng":"-123.943","distance":"2.0","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/oregon-adventurecation\/tide-pools\/","terms":"an

Crabbing and fishing on Nehalem Bay are popular. For a breathtaking view of the bay, fitness and wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy the 1.75 mile bike trail that circles the park airplane landing strip. Along this route and in the campground itself, you're likely to see deer grazing, a herd of elk, or a coyote crossing the road. The park is also graced with a variety of birds. Fine dining and local boutiques in the neighboring communities of Manzanita and Nehalem offer a change of scenery from the park setting. Afternoon or moonlit walks on the beach and down to the end of the jetty enhance the serenity of this park.

Vital stats: The campground provides 284 electrical sites (maximum site 60 feet). The park also offer 16 yurts for overnight stays, a horse camp (17 sites with corrals) and a hiker\/biker camp. The park also offers a fly-in camp adjacent to an airstrip.<\/p>","post_name":"nehalem-bay-state-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.6984","lng":"-123.936","distance":"4.4","permalink":"\/see-do\/natural-wonders\/forests-parks-refuges\/state-parks\/nehalem-bay-state-park\/","terms":"a State Park<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"9248","post_title":"Linda Sue Iii Charters Inc","post_content":"","post_name":"linda-sue-iii-charters-inc","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.6218","lng":"-123.884","distance":"4.4","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/charter-boats\/linda-sue-iii-charters-inc\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"90412","post_title":"Manzanita Golf Course","post_content":"
