Chapter 33: Fort Stevens State Park
Work continues on the South Jetty of the Columbia. This may affect access to Parking Lot C at Fort Stevens. Parking Lot D is open, but you may not be able to walk the beach between Lots D and C.
Chapter 34: Seaside/Gearhart
Effective June 2022, the city of Seaside is allowing homeless encampments at Millponds Park (p. 128). Campers are supposed to leave the property by 8:00 AM each day, but birders should assess the situation before parking or walking on the property.
Chapter 36: Tillamook County
Effective January 1, 2021, Tillamook County implemented a $10.00 day-use fee at many of their parks. This includes, but is not limited to, Kilchis River Campground, Bayocean Spit, Barview Jetty, Memaloose Point Boat Launch, and Whalen Island County Campground (not sure how this might affect parking at the state property next to the campground).
As of January 2022, the Army Corps of Engineers has begun work on the north jetty of Tillamook Bay. This will affect parking at Barview Park.
p. 136 – At the parking lot for the Tillamook Bay Wetlands Area, there is no longer an interpretive sign. There is a small sign that says, “parking area.” There is another parking area along Goodspeed Road just before the first turn.
