In the heart of Yachats, turn west on 2nd Street. The road makes a small loop, offering a serene view of the Yachats river as it meets the Pacific Ocean. Park and see the wild waves and gray whale migration. Rock and salmon fishing and tidepools bring people back to this park again and again. Plenty of resting benches and picnic tables.

Park History

The park was acquired by purchase from private owners and gifts from Lincoln County and L. P. Gill, between 1928-1986. Yachats Park protects a public fishing location and also preserves the fish spawning sand along the beach. This rocky, ocean-front park, is popular with anglers and day-use visitors. Yachats is an Indian word which is thought to mean "at the foot of the mountain." The steep face of Cape Perpetua rises just south of Yachats.
