Main attractions: 

  • Access to over a mile of lightly used, gently sloping, beach. Ideal for walking, and for the brave splashing in the cold waters of the Pacific.
  • Five miles of flat roads, some paved, some gravel that are all perfect for walking and biking.
  • Access to Nedonna Pond, which is stocked multiple times a year with Rainbow Trout. Easy access for kids of all ages to catch fish.
  • Access to the South Nehalem Jetty, where down low at low tide explore Muscles, Sea Urchins, and Sea stars, or up top fish in the Nehalem or just take a walk.
  • Access to the adjacent Tillamook Pioneer Museum’s Nedonna Marsh, where trails take you into an ancient wetland marsh.
  • A pleasant neighborhood, filled with many friendly people. The Nedonna Beach Neighborhood Association is an extension of this friendly and helpful Nedonna attitude.

Most of Nedonna Beach is located inside unincorporated Tillamook County, with just the latest addition in the NE corner (White Dove Ave, Kittiwake Dr., Chieftain Dr.) located inside the city of Rockaway Beach.    All gravel roads in Nedonna are county property, but are designated as “no maintenance” by the county. The NBNA solicits money and resources to maintain these gravel roads. Thank you Members!

Water for all of Nedonna is supplied by the city of Rockaway Beach.    Nedonna Beach is a member of the local fire district, which receives county tax money and then contracts with the Rockaway Beach Fire and Rescue for coverage.   Police coverage is through Tillamook County Sheriff Department and State Police, at this time there is no city Police coverage.    The houses which are located on unincorporated streets are all on septic, where the houses on city streets are on city sewer.   There are no active CC&R’s in Nedonna Beach.
