Arizona Beach is a two-third mile stretch of sand bookended by two rocky headlands. The headlands shelter the beach from prevailing winds, creating temperatures warm enough to give the site its name.

Mussel and Myrtle creeks flow through the park east of U.S. 101. The wetlands attract elk and a variety of waterfowl.

The Arizona Pond at Arizona Beach is available for youth fishing only. That means kids up to 17 years old. We have an agreement with ODF&W that states that as long as we stay within those guidelines they will stock it with catchable rainbow trout. All ODF&W regulations apply to the pond, juvenile licenses are required for kids 14 thru 17.  The pond and surrounding area are also used for school groups and OPRD programs on fishing and environmental education.
