Undeveloped and conserved area of beach, dunes and dune vegetation.

It's a nice little Park and out of the way, easy beach access. Easy parking and a restroom. BTW, Bob Straub was a Governor of Oregon.

Words escape to describe how beautiful the ocean view is here. The sand dunes and stretch of this amazing beach is breathtaking. I just lied in the sun and took in the warm caress of the sun. Do yourself a favor and escape to This awesome beach!

One of our favorite places on the entire coast! Simply beautiful with gorgeous sunsets and always something to see and do! One can spend day after day here and never bore of the sights and smells-- and there's good food and a gourmet espresso right within your grasp! Can't wait to be back!

This was a beautiful spot. Quiet clean dunes to walk over and an uncrowded walk on the beach. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Bob Strub state park is almost a square mile of gorgeous wildlife trees shrubs the most beautiful views on the Oregon coast with hay stack rock in the backgound. I highly recommend taking a horseback ride on the beach and also on the dunes at Bob Straw Park. Picture you and you family on a horse with the wind at... More
