General Information

Description - The shortest river in the world, D River flows a mere 200 yards from Devils Lake into the roaring ocean. The park is right off the highway with easy access to a busy -- and reliably windy --beach. D River Wayside is home to a pair of the world's largest kite festivals every spring and fall which gives Lincoln City the name Kite Capital of the World.

Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park. For information, call 1-800-551-6949.

Recreation - D River offers beach access, fishing, interpretive signs and the worlds largest kite festivals in the spring and fall.

Climate - The Oregon coast receives abundant rainfall, mostly between October and April. July and August bring the best chance for clear days. Summer temperatures are normally moderate and almost never hot. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long.

Location - D River is located along Oregon's North Coast, north of Lincoln City, just off Highway 101.
