Worth the drive from town- just 10 minutes. Beautiful woods on the way up, and great views. Nice hiking- easy at the bottom- we did it with four young kids. Really nice way to see the shore from a different perspective.

A dream come true for photographers, plenty of parking, entry charge at certain times of the year, good walking trails.

There's a wonderful hike here, with a wide, flat path. It's fairly steep for a good stretch, so it gives you a good workout. But you pass through ancient forests of great beauty, and the trail winds along the bluff a few times providing a lovely view of the ocean.

Well worth the slow drive through the woods (look for bigfoot) to get to this state park. Views were incredible, and easy beach access (down a small flight of stairs) made the beach even more fun. it was beautiful.

I was kind of skeptical about paying $5 to get in but im happy i did. You cant beat the views. If you like to hike theres a 11 mile hike to the beach

This is probably the best place on the Oregon coast. There are so many tide pools. It is perfect for kids and adults. The photos I took were amazing. It is probably one of the most photographed places on the coast.

it was windy and cold but I wanted to stop at Ecola State Park. Well needless to say, the views from here were pretty spectacular and the drive in was pretty as well. Once we parked and got out it was so windy but when we walked down to the first observation area, we were out of the wind to... More

This beach has a one day pass of $5, but it is well worth it! It was kind of like your own little beach, with a small group of tide pools down on the southern end. Our family (our children are 5 and 2) found starfish on the rocks, tiny crabs and little fish as well as the barnacles when... More
