The views of the Pacific are great here. There are several places to pull off and check out the views. Besides the gorgeous scenery look closely on the rocks below and you will see lots of sea life. The forest here is full of birds, and even non-birders can't help but notices the abundance of little birds everywhere you go... More

Love coming here to just check for whales or walk to short trail to see wildlife on the rocks or find a picnic table to get out of the wind & enjoy the view while eating. Although this time of year, it's a place to see some waves on the rocks too.

A very clean park setting with a variety of trails offering 180 degree views of the coastline. When in low tide there are many amazing tide pools to explore. The grounds are kept landscaped and dogs are welcome.

Breath taking views of the beautiful Oregon Coast. This is a 270 degree view high above huge rocks and crashing waves. Be sure to have a camera. You will want to save this view.

I took a group of high school kids camping here. Beware of the cold and wind if that's in the forecast...they are not kidding! There are plenty of places to pitch your tent near the trees and out of the wind, and we were near the horse corrals which made for interesting "bed mates". Beautiful area of the Oregon coast...

Arago State Park has provided several viewpoints along the cliffs that face the incoming surf. Plan your trip so the storm surge coincides with high tides for real wave action.

We drove here on a Rainy day and loved the views. There is a lighthouse that you can visit also. You can bring bikes and ride along the road too.
