The agency said the application period begins in early 2024.

Devil's Churn is an extremely popular Oregon coast attraction, bringing in visitors year-round. It's a few miles south of Yachats on U.S. Highway 101, below Cape Perpetua, with the only parking in the area right around the concession booth.

Siuslaw National Forest Recreation Program Manager Trevor Robinson said it is an excellent opportunity for any business that is interested in being a part of Oregon coast recreation and serving the public there.

“We encourage those who are interested to participate in the upcoming site tour, ask questions, and gather information ahead of the prospectus publication,” he said.

The SNF plans a site tour of the facility in early February of 2024. You can sign up for that tour, or submit questions, comments or concerns by contacting the SNF's Reba Ortiz at Reservations for the site tour must be made before Jan. 31, 2024.

More On the Churn and Surrounding Area

It's an area that hosts a nearly endless supply of tidepools (if the tide isn't too high), the Heceta Head Lighthouse, a few spouting horns, a variety of weird sea caves, more starfish than people, the crazed wave action of the Devil's Churn and the monumental Cape Perpetua towering over it. All of these spots are a quick walk to their respective parking lots, should the weather turn on you.

The winding, twisting roads in this part of Lane and Lincoln counties also make for a beautiful scenic ride, perfect for those who want to check out these beaches at a brisk pace in the warmth of their car.
