​Nehalem Bay State Airport (Manzanita)

Nehalem Bay (3S7)

Nehalem Bay State Airport was constructed by the Board of Aeronautics in 1958, on land leased from the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Division, as part of Oregon's coastal airport system.  The airport is located within the Nehalem Bay State Park on the inlet to Nehalem Bay, approximately two miles south of the community of Manzanita and three miles west of the community of Nehalem.

Nehalem Bay State Airport contributes to Oregon's coastal airport system, providing access to area recreation and camping directly on the airport.  The six campsites on the airport are operated by the State Parks Division.  The airport is approximately three miles from U.S. Route 101 and provides access to other coastal state parks, as well as the Tillamook State Forest.  Nehalem Bay State Airport is designated as a Level 4 airport.
