Great easy path to see the light house. The Indian Beach is one of the nicest places I have ever been. Enjoy!!!!!!

If they are going to charge people $5 to park then bathrooms should be clean. Hope you have a respirator and don't have to sit down. The beach is beautiful.

A great ride up the narrow, twisty, dark road through old growth forest to the top of the mtn. Great views you cannot believe. I held my breath for so long one lung collapsed and my wife's friend had to give me mouth to mouth. How clever of me.

This may be the most picturesque spot on the entire Oregon coast! The road to the park winds through a beautiful, lush forest. We walked the cliff top trails and took in the breathtaking coastal views, then walked the "Twilight" beach. I've revisited this place many times on my memory.

We made the short drive from the Surfsand Resort to Ecola State Park on the last morning of our stay. What a great view! The drive into the park is really pretty and there is plenty of parking when you get to the end of the road. The Park is on a Point and in one direction the view is... More

We loved the views from Ecola Point and recognized the seen from the Goonies Movie. We especially loved Indian Beach with it's sheltered cove. It was fun to watch all the surfers, young and old hitting the waves.

We took a little trip along the Oregon coast and visited Evils State Park. What a nice park! Lots of parking and easy walking areas! The scenery is breath-taking! We could see the Rocky beach and the lighthouse on the rock. Locals were donning wet suits to enjoy the ocean activities. It is awesome! Very inexpensive $5

We drove to Indian Beach, very quick drive but the parking lot fills up. We loved the ruggedness of Indian beach, just beautiful. The view from Ecola point is also fantastic - don't miss this park!

Loved this park! We hiked a great trail near the sea and when we came out we saw more than a half dozen elk grazing. They allowed us to take pictures and guests were respectful to them. It was a spectacular site.
