My wife and I visited this seaplane base on return from the Clear Lake, CA splash-in this summer. Lake Woahink is the only charted seaplane base on the Oregon coast. The lake is 2nm long and oriented north/south. The seaplane base is on the south end of the lake adjacent to Highway 101 and opposite an RV campground. The current owners, Greg and Jan Murphy have created a vacation rental on the property. 100LL is available 5 nm to the north at Florence (6S2). Greg and Jan are happy to provide transport to Florence if they are available. The Columbia Seaplane Pilots Association have recently held a splash-in there. Note – watch the coastal wind, lake orientation helps but it can get pretty stiff.
Contact Greg Murphy – 818-512-0256 for current dock status and accommodation details.
