Bob Straub State Park is a 483-acre beach environment that regularly hosts kayaking, swimming, and sporting events. Guests tend to come here for a bit of quiet during the off-months. Beautiful stretches of sandy shores make walking through Bob Straub State Park incredibly scenic. Most of the hiking trails here are paved, which means you'll be able to explore regardless of age or level of ability.
Of particular note are crab species that populate the region. Locals love hiking in Bob Straub State Park because it tends to be a little more empty than some of the surrounding parks. Dogs are very welcome here, and there are several doggie waste stations available to help you clean up anything they may deposit on the beach. Also, make sure they're leashed up before you head out to avoiding bothering other guests.
If you'd like to get out into the ocean water, you're welcome to do so here. Bob Straub State Park doesn't staff safety personnel, so guests swim at their own risks. While boating is permitted within park boundaries, there are no launch facilities available for guests with Bob Straub State Park. Make sure you're displaying current registration if you're boating through these waters. There is, however, a robust kayak and canoe community here including a series of tours offered throughout the summer months.
These tours are built for individuals of all skill levels and last for roughly 4 hours. Guests enter via the Nestucca Bay drop point and follow it out into the ocean where they follow the shore for several miles. Pets aren't allowed on these tours but are welcome on kayaks and canoes at the discretion of the owners. Bob Straub State Park is also popular for its volleyball tournaments, held seasonally.
