In the past two centuries there have been many changes at Beard's Hollow. Historically, the Chinook Indians visited the tide pools near the water's edge to collect sea life for food and shells to use as tools and decorations.
When the Lewis and Clark Expedition explored this area in 1805, the ocean waves reached a quarter mile to your left. In the early 1900s, a privately owned campground in Beard's Hollow offered access to the ocean for swimming and fishing. Later, basalt from nearby cliffs was quarried for construction materials.
After the Columbia River jetties were built (1885-1915), this cove filled in and became the wetland you see today.
Washington State Parks has managed the site since 1982.
