  • The magic of the ocean always captures one's imagination. Each visit is unlike the one the time before. Such a treasure we have here in Oregon...!  more »
  • Beautiful area on the coast to visit. We drove up to the scenic area to watch the sunset and it was amazing. We did a short hike to the big spruce tree as well. Short and easy hike through the forest....  more »

  • Nice visitor center with info about the history of the region. We took the walk down to the tidal pools and they were amazing! Seen a lot of crabs, fish, anemones, it was like an aquarium. The walk over the rocks to reach the pools is not easy, so not for all. Parking requires a parks pass.you can buy one in the visitor center or via the self serve envelopes.
  • We were able to buy 5 day State park pass for $10. Everyone very helpful and friendly! Trails to hike.
