Park

“Bedrocks on the Bay has the most amazing, flavorful clam chowder we have ever tasted. Ordering it in their signature sourdough bread bowl makes it complete. Their fish 'n chips and customizable pizzas are also equally as delicious. The best part is that you get to enjoy a view of the bay while eating your scrumptious food. It's about a 12 minute drive from Lakeside, located in Winchester Bay.”

“The Umpqua River Lighthouse is located near the Umpqua River Lighthouse Museum. Across from the lighthouse is a lookout point that offers a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean. During certain parts of the year, whales can sometimes be spotted off in the distance. It's about an 11 minute drive from Lakeside.”
