The D River is the world’s shortest river. It begins in sparkling Devil’s Lake and flows a mere 120 feet before dumping into the powerful Pacific Ocean. It is best viewed from a boat in Devil’s Lake. The D River is so small that it is contained entirely within the Lincoln City limits. The ocean tides can dramatically affect the length of this tiny river. The D River State Recreation Park provides a popular beach and excellent fishing opportunities. The D River flows under Hwy 101 and visitors love to brag about following the entire length of the river from the source to the Pacific Ocean. For more information, call (800) 551-6949.
