WOW is the word! This place is amazing and exceeded all my expectations. If you appreciate stunning coastal scenery then you have to see this park if you're touring the southern Oregon Coast. It's also a goldmine for landscape photographers. Where do I begin?? There are multiple pullouts/viewpoints along the corridor, our favorites were Arch Rock viewpoint, Natural Bridge and... More

As a photographer I can tell you that Boardman State Park is one of the jewels of the Pacific Coast. Very much like the Big Sur area of California with better access to the viewpoints and beaches.

Love the coast of Oregon and the parks offer the best trails and views. Look for sea stars at low tide, Puffins in the larger ocean surrounded rock formations, lots of paths and trails for every ability, amazing sunrise and sunset Kodak moments, stroll along the waters edge for miles and bring a picnic as there are always picnic tables...

This is such a beautiful area don't miss it. Take the time to pullover at many of the waysides or you will miss some of the most breath taking scenery. If you can, hike the costal trail where you will go through the forest and see amazing ocean vistas and beautiful foliage. Bring water, snacks etc. because there is nothing... More

The eleven miles of Samuel Board Scenic Corridor provides a network of loop trails that afford jaw-dropping vistas of the incredible southern Oregon coast. Bring your camera and be sure to charge your battery.

Don't pass up pulling over and checking out all the coastal view points along the 101 in Samuel H. Boardman State Park. Many have hiking trails down to the beach. Bring water and toilet paper because there are few restroom facilities. There are no convenience stores or gas stations along the 101 from Brookings to Gold Beach, Oregon. There's nothing... More

The views are spectacular at every lookout point and from every beach. We live in Portland and love the north coast but the southern Oregon coast is even more scenic. Our favorite was Secret Beach but every beach in the park is unique and beautiful. Take a couple beach chairs and a picnic. Most of the trails to the beach... More

This is a long stretch of beach with lots of hiking, biking trails. Some beaches and sites are only accessible by hiking but there are lots of spots that you can park next to the beaches.

We had been planning to visit here for months after reading an article by Huff Post ages ago. Went here today and were very dissapointed! It is better to walk the entire 27 mile trail because each stop over isnt as easy to view as it ought to be. Furthermore, lots of turn offs require a whole hike up and... More
