About halfway between Newport and Depoe Bay/Lincoln City, Beverly Beach stretches like so many miles of heavenly sand. Beverly Beach Campground is a great spot for people who want to camp—but don’t want to go super-rugged. Beverly Beach is one of the best places to find fossils along the Oregon Coast. This is one of our favorite Oregon Coast towns because of the beautiful beaches, the Siletz Bay (with its resident seal colony) and other offbeat things to do.
