Additional Location Information
Sunsets and unobstructed ocean views and 3 Arch Rocks are yours to enjoy right outside your picture windows. Enjoy the beach without leaving the deck .
CLAMMING, CRABBING, FISHING: Netarts Bay - clean & pure - is great for crabbing & clamming. Check to make sure it's allowed because sometimes there are certain plankton in the water (called red tides) which make the shellfish toxic to eat. Josi's Deli in Netarts usually has clam shovels for sale - and they would know if the bay or ocean are closed due to red tide. Netarts Bay RV Park, 503-842-7774, rents boats with crab rings. You can not really harvest oysters because they are commercially farmed here. You can buy fresh oysters in the shell to take-out from Whiskey Creek BBQ & Grill, however. You can find fishing guides or charter trips, both for river and ocean fishing, on the docks in Garibaldi or via Tillamook Chamber of Commerce (link provided below).
KAYAKING: There are kayak rentals in Tillamook on Hwy. 101 North. Lake Meares by Cape Meares is a quiet lake for kayaking without waves. Flat water paddling on Dougherty and Harquarton slough is a unique experience. Since you are not part of a group, you can choose your start and finish times, you can paddle at your own speed and you can choose your own route! The Dougherty and Harquarton Sloughs are calm and serene and a great place to kayak and leave civilization behind. Explore the exotic and ever-changing estuary with soaring eagles, hawks and a wide variety of birds, plants and water life. 503-812-3913 Kim Combs. The local community college can book kayaking instructions for you and/or for your group: http://www.tbcc.cc.or.us/%7Ewater/
GOING TO THE BEACH: Happy Camp in Netarts is one great place to access the beach. There is a public parking lot and there are restrooms too. You can walk for miles along sandy beaches on most days.
Cape Lookout campground has a great day use parking area and you can hike 2.5 miles to the end of Netarts Spit where herons & sometimes pelicans frequent, and seals bask on the beach.
Of course, there's the Oceanside wayside (also with restrooms) where you can go through the tunnel (at your own risk, of course).
Farther North you can park by Radar Road and use the stairs to go through a natural cave at low tide - but it fills up very quickly and without warning with the incoming tide so be extremely careful! There are tidepools in the cave with starfish & sea anemone.
Finally, driving North to Cape Meares you can access the 5 mile spit and hike down to where the town of Bayocean used to sit prior to being washed into the sea. We've been told that one can still find remnants of the foundations of the old town. There are no bathrooms there, however.
