To get the classical Oregon beach shot, head straight to the first parking lot in Ecola State park. Don't fret over the clouds. The picture you take home will knock your socks off. Can't take a bad pick from these viewpoints! Overview on the left is incredible view of the Cannon Beach coast and to the right is the classic... More

The drive into the park, through the forest is magical. Have your family photographer ride shotgun, so you don't have to keep stopping on the road for shots. Views of the coast and lighthouse are spectacular. The beach is perfect for little guys to catch white water on the boogie board and big guys to get pummeled in the big... More

This was a great area to visit. Lots of dand, some great rocks to explore, plenty of photography opportunities. We decided to go to Indian head beach, at the ranger's suggestion. He did not tell use that there was a wait to get in there. They hold cars at the entrance if the beach lot is full. It becomes one... More

Are you a Goonies lover? Scenes for the cult classic Movie Goonies were filmed here at Ecola State Park. Enjoy the views from the lookouts. Enjoy a picnic or enjoy some hiking...views of Tillimook lighthouse and Cannon and Indian Beaches from here.

We didn't have time to hike down to Indian Beach or Crescent as we had decided to save that for Cannon Beach later in the day. However, we did walk around and explore the area around the main lookout. It has incredible views of Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock. Certainly worth the $5 entry fee just to snap some beautiful...

A must visit for an amazing view of Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock. Windy forsest road leading to park is like a trip through Narnia! Also a great view of the lighthouse.

Amazing state park. Coastal views are incredible. Tide pools are packed with sea creatures and make an interesting walk. Really busy on summer weekends so I got there at 7 am and had breakfast overlooking the coast all by myself. :) Also found a short trail out of the way to an overlook where I sat for 2 hours uninterrupted....
