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

I try and make it to the coast every year. This year I will be lucky enough to make it twice. The view is absolutely amazing in the spring. We went during spring break. The weather was in total cooperation with us. Cool enough you needed jackets early in the morning but warm enough you could go without in the... More

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.
