General Advisory
NO BEACH FIRES. Due to high fire danger, Coos Forest Protection Association is imposing a Regulated Use Closure. All beaches fronting state parks in Harris Beach MU will be closed to beach fires. Beachfront parks include Harris Beach, Crissey Field, Cape Sebastian, McVay, Winchuck, Pistol River, Meyers Creek, Whaleshead Beach and Lone Ranch.

Winchuck provides a parking area and access to the Winchuck River and ocean beach for fishing, exploring, clamming, strolling, photographing seascapes and observing marine life.

There is a multi-agency effort to restore a 1.2-acre estuary at the mouth of the Winchuck River.  The estuary was carved from an upland portion of the 6.8-acre Winchuck State Recreation Site.

Besides benefiting many aquatic species with an enhanced habitat, the project will improve the Winchuck site by opening a larger area of the beach and improving viewpoints.  Trail improvements and more landscaping are planned as soon as weather permits.
