This is an experience you must have. Just the drive to the park is beautiful, not to mention the walking path. If you like to just relax while taking a stroll, definitely visit the park.

Watched the sea lions at Simpson ...saw a whale farther down the coast. Beautiful area. Stopped at Sunset Bay during low tide and checkked out the tide pools. Saw lots of hermit crabs, little crabs, anemonies and small fish.

Be sure and get binoculars or a good camera with a tripod. There is a large rock about 150 yards out and if you look at the base of it, it appears to have a bunch of drift wood thrown up on it, but it is a whole lot of sea lions and seals. Playing and sunning and barking!

We saw more fog than views when we visited. The views we could get, looked to be quite nice. We had a group of small children with us and hiking and facilities for very young children is somewhat limited. There are hikes out there, but for more agile hikers. The fog is somewhat unpredictable. A few miles a away, it... More

My family decided to spent few hours visiting the botanical garden but ended up falling in love with this great park and lagoon - so we spent the whole day there walking, swimming and watching killer whales. Definitely will be back though this place is quite far from Portland area.

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.
