  • Description
  • Reviews
  • 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.
    • Scenic Views

      Scenic views abound. Watching the ocean waves crash up against the rocks is oddly satisfying. This is a good place to walk. Or, set up your beach chair, and bring a book, if you prefer. Cellular...

    • Good camping

      This is a very small camp ground with perhaps 15 sites that are suitable for RV's probably no longer than 26 feet. It is right on a nice large, sandy beach.
