About the Fogarty Creek Rocky Shore Area

Fogarty Creek is located approximately two miles north of Depoe Bay in Lincoln County, Oregon.
Research ReserveThe rocky shores and beaches are part of Oregon’s Ocean Shore Recreation Area, with a portion of the southern section (south of Fogarty Creek) being part of the Boiler Bay Research Reserve. The Boiler Bay Research Reserve encompasses “all rocky areas, tide pools, and sand beaches situated between extreme high tide and extreme low tide lying between a line projected due west from the mouth of Fogarty Creek, on the north, and a line projected due west from the westernmost tip of Government Point at Boiler Bay State Wayside on the south.”
Key Resources
Rich and diverse intertidal habitat (primarily to the south of the accessible areas adjacent to the park) and a harbor seal haulout area.
  What can you do here?
Typical recreational uses include picnicking, beachcombing, bird watching, and tidepooling. For the part of Fogarty Creek that is a research reserve, collection of intertidal shellfish and invertebrates is limited (see current ODFW fishing regulations for a list of species and exact boundaries), except by scientific permit.
