State Recreation Site
The shortest river in the world, D River flows a mere 120 feet
from Devils Lake into the roaring ocean. The park is right off
the highway with easy access to a busy -- and reliably windy
--beach. D River Wayside is home to a pair of the world’s
largest kite festivals every spring and fall which gives
Lincoln City the name Kite Capital of the World.
Lake State Recreation Area
With downtown Lincoln City mere minutes
away, you can glide quietly by canoe or kayak on the lake
while you watch for coots, loons, ducks, cormorants, bald
eagles, and grebes. As the only Oregon coast campground
located in the midst of a city, the lake is a center of
summertime activity. Boaters, skiers, swimmers, and personal
watercraft users share the water. Kayak tours of the lake are
scheduled in the summer (we provide the kayak).
Drift Creek Bridge
Built to serve the coast's horse and buggy crossing. Closed in
the 1960s, it was dismantled and moved to Bear Creek in 1997.
Van Duzer Forest State Scenic Corridor
Enjoy your drive through this scenic
corridor surrounding Highway 18. Along the way, there's a
place to pull off, stretch your legs and enjoy a spot of lunch
amid a captivating ancient forest. If the time is right, get
ready for some exciting wildlife viewing. A weekday would be
the most peaceful, and give you a chance to discover the old
growth Douglas-fir trees along the Salmon River. Stay alert
for salmon, deer and Roosevelt elk. Exactly one mile east of
the park entrance is a pull-out with a short trail leading to
a swimming hole beneath more ancient trees.

Lincoln County Historical Museum
4907 SW Hwy 101, Lincoln City, Oregon, phone: 541-996-6614
The North Lincoln County Historical Museum was founded in 1987 through
the initiative and hard work of The North Lincoln County Pioneer and
Historical Association. Beginning with one hundred and ten charter
members in a small storefront, NLCHM now has a permanent home, three
paid staff, and a dedicated group of volunteers. Located in what
historically was the village of Taft, the museum's exhibits, research
library, offices and store are in a two-story, sixty-year-old building.
This building was built in 1940 as the Taft-Nelscott-Delake Fire Hall,
and later was occupied by City Hall until it was deeded to NLCHM in
1995. The mission of the museum is to provide the public with an
educational resource dedicated to the interpretation and preservation of
North Lincoln County History.
End State Recreation Site
fine place for a romantic stroll with
tidepools, islands, and the headland with its hidden cove.
Sailboarders come from everywhere! When Lincoln City’s beaches
are crowded or windy, this sheltered spot just north of town
is surprisingly quiet. A short path descends to the beach at
the pebbly mouth of a lazy little creek. The north beach is
topped by a jumble of quaint old cottages until the beach
narrows to the massive Cascade Head. Fragments of lava form
ragged islands where comic, long-necked cormorants dry their
black wings atop guano-stained roosts. At low tide it’s
possible to clamber around the headland’s tip to a secret cove
and beach. Don’t linger too long or you’ll have to wait hours
until the next low tide to get out!
