• Twin Bridges Park is popular for kayaking, fishing, scuba diving, and swimming
Twin Bridges Park is a a two-acre destination hidden in plain sight, tucked away on the bank of Siletz River 3 miles away from the small community of Logsden and 18 miles away from Newport.
The name Twin Bridges comes from the fact that the new bridge carrying Sams Creek Road over the Siletz River sits right next to the remnants of the old bridge. The biggest remnants are two huge pillars standing tall right next to the new bridge, but you can see other signs of the old bridge in the area.
Picnicking, nature viewing, fishing, swimming, scuba diving, boating, tubing, and a variety of other water activities are the best pastimes here.
While water is most comfortable for swimming during summer, this spot is great for other water activities year-round. Water temperature in August reaches 68°F and the beach is either sandy or a mix of sand and cobbles. One of the swimming spots got low submerged ledge platforms you can jump off of. Both sides of the river have spots with swing ropes.
Fishing is a popular activities on the Siletz River. It has winter and summer runs of steelhead, Coho runs starting mid-September and Chinook salmon runs from late June through November. Always verify current fishing regulations at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
From the parking lot, take a boat ramp down the river or walk across the bridge to find your own secluded spot to enjoy. Take a trail on either side to look for the best spot for you.
Parking has plenty of space for such a small area. Twin Bridges Park is a day-use-only area with no fees charged for its usage. There is an accessible pit toilet and picnic tables in the rest area.
