McVay Rock State Recreation Site is a state park in the U.S. state of Oregon, administered by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.

The park was purchased from private owners at some point between 1970 and 1974. It was named for the nearby McVay Rock, which was demolished for gravel and fill rock, and is now the site of a small housing development.

  • Great place to wade in the rock pools at low tide. Good place to walk your dog but limited parking
  • Amazing beach for Rock collectors or for those who might favor sea glass!! There's also a dog park and frisbee golf.
