About 45 minutes south of Cannon Beach & 20 minutes north of Tillamook is Barview Jetty.
You don’t come here for carousels or fancy boutiques. You come to enjoy the beauty of the beach, go fishing & play in the sand.
Top: The North Jetty
The jetty is a large man made rock structure built to protect Tillamook Bay. The waves can really get crazy here, especially at the end of the jetty. So, be careful.
Middle Right: The dark blob near the bottom of the photo is a sea lion seen from the jetty. We don’t see them every time we’ve gone to the jetty, but we have seen them often.
Middle Left: The Tillamook Bar is known for it’s rough crossing.
Bottom: On calmer days, starfish, mussels & barnacles can be seen in the rocks.

Middle Right: Fire pits for roasting marshmallows, of course.
Bottom Right: We’ve cooked many bushels of oysters on those fire pits, as well. To go with the oysters, we cook steamer clams in the trailer. Mmmm…. Mmmm…. Mmmm. We typically get our seafood from Pacific Oyster Company in Bay City.
There is nothing wowing about Barview Jetty, but just the simple beach and camping atmosphere make it one of my favorite places.
