General Advisory
“Effective Aug. 19 at 10 a.m., a statewide ban is in place for all campfires and open flames in properties owned and managed by Oregon State Parks, as well as the ocean shores. This includes but is not limited to fire pits, tiki torches, candles, charcoal/briquettes, propane fire rings and other open flame sources. Also no cigars, cigarettes or lighters can be used except in vehicles. The use of propane stoves is acceptable, but are subject to local fire restrictions. Please check with park staff. This ban will remain in effect for at least one week and will be re-evaluated based on fire status, weather and guidance from state and local fire officials.”

Symbols represent major park features & activities. Blue icons mean some/all are ADA accessible.

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.
