We ran across this while exploring. It’s a great place. Many beaches, trails, a beautiful drive, great overlooks and trails down to tidewater pools. Picnic tables and benches are everywhere. It was just an enjoyable place that we discovered quite by accident. It’s off the 101 beaten path, but well worth the detour.

It was nice and the view was spectacular. Would have liked to have visited further into the summer when the weather was better but still very picturesque!

This one of our favorite places to go in the CoosBay area. The scenery is amazing to just sit and watch. The waves come crashing in over the rocks making it seem so violent all the time. Beautiful and a must see if coming to this area.

I loved this park - the views of the ocean and the rock formations were impressive. Many trails to be found as well as picnic areas.

This is my favorite beach ever! There is so much incredible personality in the ocean. Just watching the water itself is amazing. The rugged shoreline at Cape Arago is absolutely lovely. The view of Sea Lions and other sea animals and birds is wonderful. The picnic tables over the cliffs offer such a lovely place to have an amazing picnic... More

This Is the place we go to whale watch. There are open spaces and picnic tables nestled in. You may see a deer or rabbit. The bunnies escaped from some pen somewhere and bred with the local wild ones. Warning: I don't care how hot it is, most of us will need a jacket, preferably with a hood. You'll see... More

... and lots of sea lions. Take a picnic and sit near the edge of the cliffs and have a fantastic view.

We had been driving through Coos Bay for years on our return from California. I thought it was a mill town - not worth stopping. But I did some homework and decided that it was worth a day trip from our haunt in Yachats to Coos Bay to find this place. We drove south past Florence, crossed the bridge leading... More

We stopped at this park and lookout several times while camping at a local State Park. We watched the whales as they migrated by. The ocean view is beautiful from here. You can see forever!!
