1 mmcdowell 05/27/2007 Access to the beach south of Winchuck R. is strewn with homeless type trash. There is a semi-abandoned looking RV parked along the access trail, brought in from the south end roads. Might not be abandoned? The beach was clean; neither natural nor trash debris to speak of. I only walked south of the Winchuck R. View full report 0

1 [email protected] 07/26/2009 Bright, sunny day at this Park/Visitor Center. Lots of people out enjoying themselves. Only problem noticed was that there was much litter everywhere. One man with Volunteer hat was collecting trash in the parking lot. Park is getting more landscaping plantings and will end up looking pretty good (except for all the concrete!). View full report 1
1 [email protected] 03/09/2009 Mile 1 is the site for the new Crissey State Park & Visitor Welcome Center. Has been open only about 2 weeks. Minor trash on beach, such as tennis shoes, tangle of rope, plastic bottles. Next time I plan to take a garbage bag. Area landscaping is not bad, but the building itself is a travesty of design. I haven't seen so much concrete in one place since visiting Columbia River dams!Pleasant beach to walk on south side of Winchuck River, but north side completely blocked by large driftwood logs and debris.

1 [email protected] 04/15/2010 Everything still in well-kept condition at this mile, which is the Crissey Field Recreation Area (and Visitor Center, USFS, etc.). It still looks like an intrusion into the area, but maybe time will mellow things. There is a Park host RV located off the main road, but no camping/picnicing areas. Maybe he is the one who keeps the area policed up. View full report 0

1 Barbara 06/21/2010 The Winchuck River Mouth has been fascinating to watch. Huge quantities of sand and gravel have moved around. Sand now covering part of clambeds ("Hooray!the clams say). A sand island appears and disappears at the mouth. Mouth has moved substantially north and back again the last few months. Winter storms are cutting into banks. Have seen otters, seals, a raccoon and many species of birds this Spring...when we ould get on the beach in the RAINY weather we've had. View full report 0

Only a few people about, even tho this is the Oregon Visitor Center; FYI, it is the most well-stocked one I've seen. Enormous amount of drift wood covering the sand right to the Winchuck River and the Pacific. View full report 2
1 floral 01/31/2014 Walked the sand dune like area and found the tide very high.. up to the grass in many places toward the Calif. boarder..lots of tree stumps and dead trees on the beach from the Winchuck River I surmise. The waves were not too wild but the tidecame up to the paths made to travel to the beach area. View full report 4
1 floral 12/01/2013 Mile 1 today was calm seas even though it was highest tide..walking at the Crissy field was easy and interesting driftwood about.Saw a Great blue heron fishing at the mouth of the river.Also saw tow Eagles flying high and sea gulls. When I drove around to the other side of the Windchuck River I could see a seal swimming toward the bridge. A watcher who lives there, said the sealwas looking for the first Steelhead that were coming into the river.Human trash was not visible anywhere, making it a wonderful walk and an empty trash bag to take home.

Crissey Field Visitor Center and Winchuck River access on north side of river are both opened today. They were both closed when I last visited in July and also within the last month or two as I observed closed gates when driving by. I did not walk on north side of river, spending time walking entire stretch of south side past Calif border to the headland below the White Rock Resort Cabins instead which I measured as a 3 mile round trip. The beach on the Oregon side of the border and south of the river is very clean with no impacts. People walking were enjoying warm sunny weather on Thanksgiving Day. Very little bird activity. Winchuck River mouth side channel on south side prevents walking from bridge to beach.

Beach looks super clean; no litter except for one dog poo bag. People activity concentrated nearer to Vistor Center on south side of river and closer to mouth of river on north side. Activities: surf fishing, family gatherings, walkers; everyone behaving nicely and happy even in the fog (warm with no wind). Observed vehicle tracks in soft sand mid slope. I walked past park boundary south to rental cabins at south end of beach where there were several more people, some with a beach fire and some playing in the ocean. I was on the beach 1.5 hours.

Most important observation was the dumped contruction material - mostly wood -  at the end of a rough trail down the west side of dune. Reported it to the staff at the travel center, who also walk the beach, and to the ranger at Harris Beach. Plenty of colorfulful seaweed in the multicolored cobble and in the wrack. A few beachcombers picking up driftwood sticks and rocks.

Human activity: 23 people, 6 dogs. Most walking, 4 playing in surf, 2 surf fishing. All dogs on leash. Surf fishing seems too close to pelican fishing due to potential for entanglement. Beach is very clean but I did not walk north side of Winchuck River. Shoreline wildlife: Mostly continuous wrackline of dried up seaweed. 100 Brown pelicans diving at mouth of Winchuck River, roosting on offshore rocks and large squadrons flying in from the south.

2 [email protected] 05/16/2008 Beach looked in good shape from on the bluffs. Due to minor continuing erosion of path, which was bad before, I was unable to get down to beach: cause mainly a creaky, stiff old body. Some folks have started making a new path just north of the ravine; I feel this is not a problem. One man waS picking up trash on the north side, but it looked to be quite minor. Beach does seem to have sand washed away at water's edge, exposing many more areas of low rocks. View full report 2

Still it is well used. Beach is generally is generally in good condition except for the two relatively minor problems noted. Observed perhaps two dozen or more Ochre Sea Stars in the tide pools. I saw no dead sea stars, missing limbs, lesions, or other evidence of Wasting disease. This very local population of Ochre Sea Stars seems healthy, at least at this moment in time View full report 0

4 pelican 04/23/2010 All in all, the two beaches remain beautiful and undisturbed by people. A few deer were found nesting and relaxing close to the cliff's edge, among the bushes and driftwood debris. The most startling, though, was the force of the water that occurred during our last storm in Late Feb. early March. These are HUGE logs, drifted down from the Chetco River and deposited on the shoreline of the beach. To see these logs, having been thrown around like pick up sticks and deposited up the bank and onto the walkway, is unbelievable. View full report 0

4 pelican 12/14/2010 On this beautiful day in mid-December, the beach areas were littered with large root balls from trees and other large logs which had, along with kelp debris, littered around the beach area and, i suspect, were uncovered from the strong wave action of previous days storms. Normally, these large logs, etc. are closer up to the banks. All was calm, a few seagulls soaring around, watching our every move, and sparkling blue water in the little alcove that makes up the North Jetty Beach. It was fun talking with the couple from Medford area who were, needless to say, enthralled with this beach and its beauty. It was a privilege to be down there on this day. View full report 0
4 pelican 06/20/2010 These two areas on either side of Tanbark Point looked good. Little debris, Osprey on her nest and a few Pelicans dotted the water. Only physical change was due to the big logs thrown up onto the walkway of the North Jetty Beach access, causing fewer people to use this jetty and beach and allowing weeds to grow up over the little trail. The sewer plant and the slippage of the cliff below are being monitored closely by the water department of Brookings and no danger at this point to beach walkers. If one becomes imminent, the beach access will be closed while the problem is solved. View full report 0

North towards Zwagg Island the tidepools were thick with the greatest diversity and quantity of sea weed I have ever encountered. The pools had appropriate concentrations of mollusks, crustaceans and invertebrates. South toward the sewage treatment plant the natural community was different for the most part than encountered on the north end. Here there were healthy populations of Ochre sea stars and Giant green anemones. Tidepools and beach were in good shape and not heavily used.
