South Jetty area provides day use access to the beach and dunes, with separate areas for off-highway vehicle (OHV) use and non-motorized use.
Walkers and hikers can enjoy miles of open beach and explore dune formations above the Siltcoos River.
OHV enthusiasts will find two developed staging areas and access to a dozen dispersed sand campsites available by permit. Please see OHV Rules for Riding before heading out.
Map of South Jetty Area
Map showing recreational areas.
The area has six beach access points that provide access to the beach. Climb up on the top of the foredune and enjoy the vista from all angles before making your way down to the beach.
Access points have paved parking areas; some have toilets.
Cast your line into the breakers on the beach, or access the Siuslaw River’s rocky southern jetty.
Drop your pots, take a seat and enjoy the view while you wait. The crab dock itself is managed by Lane County.
Toilets and paved parking are available at the dock.
Seasonal wetlands tucked amongst the low lying dunes draw migrating and resident birds.
Sit atop the large dune that creates the backdrop for the beach and you can view the ocean from sun up to sun down.
