Accessible Beach/Shore Access icon with wheelchair user (ISA) at water's edge Accessible Beach/Shore Access

Beach and shore access includes accessible routes to and across the surface of a beach or shore, but not necessarily to the edge of the water. Currently, this access is mostly by beach wheelchair. Occasionally, beach mats, boardwalks or paved multi-use trails along the beach provide some access. Weather conditions, such as blown sand or heavy rain, may sometimes impact accessibility. Supporting facilities such as parking, restrooms, and dressing rooms are accessible when so described. Routes of travel from parking areas to and along the beach access routes at the parks below are level, firm, stable, and unobstructed when so described. Click the underlined links for details on each park, and plan to call ahead so that beach wheelchair use details can be arranged. Note: For those interested in accessible swimming, there are new pool lifts available at Grover Hot Springs State Park and at Bothe Napa State Park.
