Opened December 2008, the land was acquired through an exchange with a private timber firm in 1993, but was undeveloped until Lottery-based funds for a new welcome center were allocated. The site is the first southern beach access site in Oregon, less than a mile from the Oregon-California border. The site is named for W.L. (Bill) Crissey, who grew lily bulbs on the land before World War II. In 1950, the State-Line Airstrip was constructed, only to be abandoned in the 1960s due to disuse.
