Pretty views and nice walks butsomewhat dependent on the weather. It can be cold foggy and blustery which can make it a little less pleasant for walking, but in some ways more scenic and mysterious.

Love to go out and watch the fog roll in; listen to the sea lions chatter; enjoy the ocean! Very relaxing. Bring your camera and binoculars if you have them. Scenary is awesome. Don't forget to stop on the way up at Sunset Beach, Shore Acres and take a look at the lighthouse also!

Short easy drive over through Charlestown and then up along the peninsula. Several pull-offs to scenic views and nice hiking trails. Not much further to the actual cape with a nice promontory. It was at least 10 degrees cooler than in town with the wind and mist.

Great views here and we even saw a whale. Can hear the seals on their island -take binoculars so you can see them. This is a short visit does not take much time - Do it!

Great views! You can't come to Coos Bay without visiting Cape Arago State Park. There are many hiking trails, whale watching, and picturesque views of the crashing waves on the cliffs. I make sure to visit at least 6 times a year!

We didn't have enough time to fully explore this area, but will be sure to get back at another time. Every corner we turned we found more to explore.

We love this state park because of its naturalness. Not a lot of people, lots of great beauty. Simply spectacular. Both the north and south sides are worth visiting. Not particularly easy to hike down to the beaches, but so very worthwhile. We visit several times very time we are in Oregon and Cape Arago never gets old. Thank you,... More

Stand at the edge of a cliff and feel the thunder of the strong waves pounding the rocks. Look out for whales on the ocean and baby seals on the beach. Hike through the beautiful coves and trails of Cap Arago and Shore Acres. A must see place for travelers.

I've done the quick drive through in the past simply because seals on the rocks aren't my 'thing'. But this time I walked south past some picnic tables and found I was overlooking an awesome beach! Next time, when I have more time, I will figure out how to get down to it!

I went on a Thursday early afternoon, it was very quiet and felt like I had the park to myself. There are several great lookouts to stretch the eyes and the drive getting there was pretty. Well maintained park
