Salmon Creek Beach, where a lagoon forms as sand closes the mouth of Salmon Creek, is a popular summer destination. Nearly two miles of unbroken, scenic, sandy beach make this an excellent place for surf fishing, beachcombing, and picnicking. North and South Salmon beaches are popular with the local surfing community when the waves are good. No dogs, horses or fires are allowed on north or south Salmon Creek Beaches due to the Federal protection of the snowy plovers. The Western Snowy Plover is listed under the Federal Endangered Species Act as a threatened species. Loss of nesting habitat is due to human development, invasion of European beach grass and predation by ravens, foxes, domestic horses, dogs and cats.

Very dog hating place. If your homeless stop on by but do not bring your dogs. This place is ridiculous.
As a state park volunteer docent/patrol, I want to inform visitors to this Beach that dogs are not permitted anywhere on north or south Salmon Creek Beaches. Primary reason for not allowing dogs here...
