Arizona Beach State Recreation Site

37001 - 37023 Oregon Coast Highway

Arizona Beach is a two-third mile stretch of sand bookended by two rocky headlands. The headlands shelter the beach from prevailing winds, creating temperatures warm enough to give the site its name.

Mussel and Myrtle creeks flow through the park east of U.S. 101. The wetlands attract elk and a variety of waterfowl.

The Arizona Pond at Arizona Beach is available for youth fishing only. That means kids up to 17 years old. We have an agreement with ODF&W that states that as long as we stay within those guidelines they will stock it with catchable rainbow trout. All ODF&W regulations apply to the pond, juvenile licenses are required for kids 14 thru 17.  The pond and surrounding area is also used for school groups and OPRD programs on fishing and environmental education.

They had a kids fishing day for youth. The state staff was extremely helpful and very supported. My grandkids had a blast. I'd say the place is perfect for kids

*juvenile trout fishing (17 and younger) *pond *picnic tables and trash *restrooms *walking path *beach access The first time we visited was for free fishing day. There is a lot of moss but there are so many fish that the fishing is pretty easy and there are some huge trout in the pond. They must have recently restocked the pond because today when we went we could see them swimming around in the water and each of the kids caught big ones. We also get to see a lot of species of birds while here (ospreys, blue heron, ducks, red winged black birds, etc.) and also once saw an otter get up on a log and eat a fish as big as himself! There is an easy walking path around the pond. And a port a potty nearby. If you drive past the pond and under the highway there is a restroom and beach access.
