Awesome hike. We hiked in for a picnic down to the beach. About 2 miles in and out. Really a beautful trail and well kept park. Travelled with family and the hike was appropriate for kids, aged 8-10

Easy beach to access and great beach to walk. Great photo ops of rugged coast, tall trees, Tillamook Light, and very high waves

Amazing beach, tidepools, and a beautiful drive in. The tidepools are within easy walking distance (south) from the parking lot.

This park, right off the highway is a must stop on your exploration of the Oregon coast. Lots to see especially if you get lucky with a low tide. Parking lot can get full on sunny days, that is why the winter is best with the storms and all.

Take the road to the main parking lot. From there walk to the south overlook. The views of the coast are spectacular!. There is also an interesting view of an abandoned lighthouse toward the north. It is noe used as a columbarium. Pretty neat. We experienced a bonus when we looked back toward the parking lot. A herd of elk... More

My friend stayed here and from what I could see the rooms were very spacious there was a refrigerator and microwave inside the staff seemed very nice and it was very close to the beach

Even if you do nothing else, go here and pay the $5 and snap a photo of Cannon Beach from the first overlook. Most of the rest of the park is accessible via hiking - the day we were there we weren't equipped for that (and it was raining), but I'd love to return here.

The surfing was amazing as was the hiking and mountain biking. It is a beautiful park. I would definitely recommend visiting this park if you ever go to Cannon Beach.

Very picturesque and a must see if you are/were a fan of the Goonies. You can also see where the Fratelli house was built (since torn down, as it was only built for the movie). It was very cool to be able to walk out on the beach and see all the sea life as the tide was out. Very... More
