About Beverly Beach State Park

Beverly Beach State Park’s creekside campground is one of the state’s largest. Some campsites and the park’s day-use area are just steps away from miles of ocean beach extending from Yaquina Head to Otter Rock. The forest-sheltered campground features giant, wind-sculpted trees and nurse logs. Spencer Creek runs through the campground and day-use area. 

Project

The project focuses on upgrading the park and campground utilities, including power and water lines. The upgrades include:
  • Replacing single-phase power to three-phase power so onsite equipment can operate safely.
  • The local power provider will also replace the overhead power lines with underground power lines in conduit.
  • Replacing portions of the water lines that are well beyond replacement age and are an ongoing maintenance issue.

Temporary Visitor Impact

Scheduling requires the park closed Sept. 5, 2023 through Spring 2024.

Milestones

  • Design finalized.
  • Awarded construction contract to Laskey-Clifton and started construction.

Next Steps

  • Substantial completion of construction in June 2024.
The current general obligation bond estimate is $5-6 million.
