I loved the beach here. The view is so beautiful. Lots of neat places to climb or just walk on the beach. Watching the sunset from here is magnificent. Can't beat it.

From a beautiful beach to rugged rocks to pounding waves, this beach has it all. And, if you eat lunch at one of the tables, you'll get up close and person with the gulls and squirrels.

Great camping experience at the ocean side state park near the California border. Tent rates only $14 per night, immaculate bathrooms and volunteers who make sure to clean up each campsite after the campers vacate. Yurts were only $43 per night but I am told they are hard to get and need reservations 6 months or more in advance. Easy... More

Like going to this beach. Layed back and not busy like the port. Great for hiking with a lot of trails in the area as well as the beach itself.

We only stopped for the night on our way back home to Northern California, but this is the second state park campground in Oregon that we have stayed at, and it was just as amazingly nice as the first one. Oregon cares about its state parks, and it shows. Nice people at the booth, no issue with showing up for... More

We happened along this beach early one morning. We walked down a somewhat steep asphalt trail to the beach, so, this may be a problem for some people. But, when you get to the beach you will not be disappointed at the coastal views. This will go down as one of our favorite beaches on our coastal tour. We spent... More

From the spectacular views of the Campgrounds to the awesome foot or drivable access to the beach...this is a jewel of ocean beaches from up and down the Oregon Coast... Five yurts (plan ahead as they disappear quickly) georgous campground throughout with several beach accessible trails abundant with fauna & flora! Or, drive down the road to the beach for... More

We went to the part of the beach that there is a footpath to the beach with a fairly steep grade. I have a few extra pounds on me so I was huffing and puffing on my way back up to the parking lot. But it was worth it to because the beach is beautiful with the soft sand and... More

This beach was a nice change in scenery after touring the Redwood parks all day. It makes a great first stop for people coming up US 101 from California who are interested in seeing some beautiful coastal scenery. The beach itself is nice but we were particularly impressed with the trails along the access road that afforded spectacular views of... More

We stayed here sept 2014. This campground was packed! The spots are very close so you literally hear everything going on. Kids, barking dogs, car alarms etc. Unfortunately for us we had some drunk people next to us who were up (and kept is up) until 2 am and were up making noise at 7am so we did not get... More
