Oregon's Nehalem Bay State Park Reopens

PORTLAND - Three of the six loops in the park's 265-site campground and its 17-site horse camp will reopen Friday, Dec. 14.

All of the park's campsites had been closed since Dec. 3 in the wake of a storm that left the campground filled with downed trees and debris.

Full power has been restored in all areas of the park, which lies on a spit between the Pacific Ocean and Nehalem Bay between the communities of Nehalem and Manzanita.

The day-use area and trails to the beach at Oswald West State Park, 10 miles south of Cannon Beach, are now open, but the trails to Cape Falcon and Arch Cape remain closed indefinitely. The closure of Saddle Mountain State Natural Area, inland from Seaside and north of Highway 26, also is still in effect.

The campgrounds at Fort Stevens and Cape Lookout remain closed, but could open as early as next week. The Department will make an announcement Dec. 17 to update the status of those two parks.
