Don't forget to bring food to hand feed the squirrels! The view is beautiful and I would recommend packing a lunch and enjoying the punch bowl as well as the beach.

Worth the trip to this little area to see the architecture of the landscape, have a little bite at Mo's or the winery there. A special little nestled cove of the Coast there close to Depoe Bay worth visiting. I saw it for years passing by and never went. Glad now I did! Recommend going on a day when there... More

I haven't had any experience with the park portion with it's picnic spots, et al. But we love going down into the Punch Bowl. It's a bit of a walk (I use a cane) and up hill on the return but it's so worth it. I have visited the punch bowl regularly with friends, grandkids and with my hubby. The... More

The punch bowl from above is good to watch. Better from beach level where you can get into it at low tide. Lovely secluded bay beach, and you may see whales as well.

I was able to take some great pics! Had a great time, very relaxing in the summer sun. Went for a nice long walk on the beach.

My title says it all! The view of the ocean is spectacular! Easy drive from Lincoln City! Needless to say, take you camera, and for those that are of hardy stature, make your way to the beach below.

This was really nice... we just stopped in passing but there were some well manicured pathways and beautiful natural waterways to see.

This is a great stop in the parks system. We, unfortunately, were there at low tide, and the sight was less impressive. The area includes nature trails, a great visitor center with publications and restrooms, and friendly rangers. I like the area and will plan another visit.
