There are three (yes 3!) oceanfront day use state parks in Yachats, and no day use fees.

(Beach) ♦ Yachats Ocean Road State Natural Site is located just south of downtown at the mouth of the Yachats River. Turn west off Hwy. 101 onto Yachats Ocean Road at the south end of the Yachats River Bridge. There are parking spaces and picnic tables along this rim road, and a wooden staircase down to the beach. At low tide, except in winter, you'll find a wonderful sandy beach here, and often small tidepools. This is a great place to build a sandcastle, picnic, and with a little breeze - fly a kite. You may see heron fishing in the shallow section of the river, wild ducks floating under the bridge, an eagle or two, pelicans, and a variety of shore birds.

(Tidepools) ♦ Yachats State Recreation Area  is located at the west end of 2nd Street in downtown Yachats. This park offers a sometimes serene and sometimes wild view of the Yachats River as it meets the Pacific Ocean with Cape Perpetua as the backdrop. It's is a great place to park and watch waves and to spot gray whales spouting or seals playing in the surf. There is also a nice tidepools viewing platform here (check the tides), as well as a grassy lawn, resting benches, an historic marker, and picnic tables.

(Trail) ♦ Smelt Sands State Recreation Site is located at the north end of town. Turn west off Hwy. 101 at the Smelt Sands sign onto a gravel road that leads to the park/parking lot. The park has a small pebbly beach near the entrance, and picnic tables and benches along a beautiful 3/4 mile stretch of the 804 Trail (accessible). At low tide, the north end of this trail, except in winter, connects by stairway to a 7-mile stretch of sandy beach that reaches all the way to the Alsea Bay at Waldport. The 804 Trail from the parking lot north to the beach is above the tideline, so it may be walked any time of day. However, do not venture onto the tabletop basalt rock except at low tide, and then only with caution. Sneaker waves can happen, and they are formidable. Do not turn your back on the ocean. While picnicking, watching beautiful waves, or hiking along the 804 Trail watch for whale spouts - you may even be able to count several! (Most of the year we have grey whales here - and many more during the spring and winter migrations.)

North Fork of the Yachats River Covered Bridge

From town, take a 9-mile scenic drive up the Yachats River Road to visit the historic North Fork of the Yachats River Covered Bridge. Seven miles up Yachats River Rd., you will cross a small cement bridge - turn left here onto the N Fork Yachats River Rd - a well-maintained gravel road - for the final two miles. (Street cars are fine, but the road will not accommodate RVs). Park in the small turn-out before the bridge and walk across. The N Fork Yachats Covered Bridge was built in 1938 with a Queenpost truss, one of the few of this type remaining in Oregon. It was faithfully restored in 1989, and in 2014. Look up the hillside above the bridge for a view of a giant old-growth Spruce tree that is 350 years old. If you make this trip in the early morning or evening, watch for elk grazing in pastureland shared by goats, sheep, horses and belted black cattle, affectionately referred to by local children as the oreo cows.

Sea Lion Caves (America's largest sea cave) is a privately owned wildlife preserve and bird sanctuary, since 1932, located just 15 miles south of Yachats and 11 miles north of Florence. It is the year-round home of the Steller sea lion, but sea lions are not always in the Cave. This is not a zoo, and sea lions are wild animals, so these protected animals come and go as they please. In winter months, hundreds of sea lions are usually found in the Cave, but when spring arrives, breeding and birthing time, the sea lions will move from the Cave to the rookery areas (the rock ledges out in front of the Cave) and remain there through summer. Please check the web site, linked below, for current admission prices and hours.

The 804 Trail

The historic Yachats 804 Trail probably first served as a footpath for tribal people. It later became part of County Road 804, which included the 7-mile stretch of beach between Yachats and Waldport at low tide. County Road 804 served as the settler's route of travel between the farmland of the upper Yachats River valley and Waldport's Alsea Bay until the 1930s and the completion of Hwy 101. The highway replaced the oceanside portion of County Road 804.

The 804 Trail North begins from the parking lot of Smelt Sands Recreation Site and winds north 3/4 mile where it connects to the 7-mile stretch of sandy beach. During the 1970s a long legal battle ensued to have this section of trail vacated. Oregon's high court finally ended the argument with its ruling in the mid-1980s that the 804 Trail N must be continued. This 3/4 mile section of trail subsequently became part of Oregon State Parks.

Successful mediation with local home owners in the late 1990s allowed for the completion of the 804 Trail South. The 804 Trail South is about a mile in length, stretching from the south edge of Smelt Sands Recreation Site, across the lawn behind the Adobe Resort, through oceanside neighborhoods to Yachats State Recreation Area (at the west end of 2nd St) and to downtown Yachats on the north side of the Yachats River.

The Yachats Commons is the community center in the heart of Yachats on the central Oregon coast.

The building was built in the 1930s and was used as a school until 1983 when it closed. Many locals fondly remember their early school days here.

In 1990 the building was purchased by the City of Yachats to be used as a community center and it now serves as host to such events as ballroom dances, civic and political meetings, exercise classes, plays, art shows, musical productions, conferences, workshops, the local youth center, and more.

Many private events such as wedding receptions, parties and reunions are also held here. The large, old classrooms and side corridors have a comfortable, homey feeling, and there is a large stage and gym (now multipurpose room). These are perfect for many activities.

Rooms are available for rent to individuals, groups, or organizations. We can host small groups or large events of several hundred. Theater and kitchen facilities are available on site and a large playground, lawn and picnic shelter are located behind the building. Lighting and sound equipment, as well as a very lovely grand piano area also available to rent for your events. Catering is available from local businesses, and lodging and restaurants are conveniently nearby.
