Crissey Field State Recreation Site is a state park in the U.S. state of Oregon, administered by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.

The northern boundary of the park is the Winchuck River. The southern border is indeterminate, varying by source. However it clearly ends a few hundred feet into California, north of Pelican Beach State Park.

The park is named after the abandoned airfield contained within it, Crissey Airport. The runway is now a beach access footpath.[citation needed]
