We visited the beach several times. It wasn't crowded which made it quite enjoyable to take leisurely walks. It was quite windy during our stay so we didn't see everything they had to offer.

Plenty of free parking along with an easy walk to the flat, easy to access beach. Beautiful view of the ocean and family friendly.

We stayed one night. Arrived late with reservations. The camp sites were pretty tight however. The bathroom were nice and stocked. We never made it to the beach since we had to leave to Tillamook early the next day. Would stay again.

Wildlife viewing, nice hiking trails, beach walk. Plus the weather was amazing -- warm and not windy -- which made for an even better experience.

Picked up a tide table and found a wonderful beach of tide pools. It was a beautiful day and amazing sealife. Loved it.

We used this uncrowded beach as a nice place to get in our beach walks. Easy access from the day-use parking lot (with a rest room). Long stretches of flat sand both north and south. Go north to enjoy sitting on the south jetty to watch the boats come and go.

Great campground for RVs. Lots to do for kids and adults alike. Paved trails to the beach. Take bikes. For older kids and adults you can ride your bike quite a ways into the bay. Easy access to the beach. Full day use facilities.

Nice State park facilities for camping and day use. Interpretive signs, trails. Of course the beach is the best part! There are often surfers here to watch.

Most surfers know about this area and is it a top choice for surfuers. However it is a great stop for families who want to experience the OR coast beach- unlike any beach you will find in So Calif. Remember to bring your hoddies, dress warm and if you plan on going in the ocean- make sure you have a... More

Not sure I would want to stay here again.. They tell me they are short staffed but if you go to the booth they don't come to help you? It was not a good experience and to top it off we had to go pay to dump as there dump station is inadequate. bathrooms were not to clean either..
