Pretty area with history

Walk down to the beach - clean & nice sand. Seems secluded. Huge rock is massive! Nice place to stop off for a bathroom break & take a walk to stretch your legs.

Go at low tide and look for tide pools with all the wonderful sea creatures. We found anemones and star fish and lots of beautiful agates. At certain times of the year you can see debris buried in the sand from one of the shipwrecks in the area. (learn more at the Port Orford Coastguard Station Museum). Huge mountains of... More

Add this to the other observations of this park...the best drinking fountain ever, if you're a rock hound! From what I've been told, it was a labor of love-the combined effort of two men who loved collecting, polishing and cutting beautiful rocks, local agates in particular. Don't leave without checking it out :-)

Battle Rock State Park is more than just a rock, it's an entire beach plus picnic sites overlooking the beach and the rock where the battle took place. There is a visitors' center with bathrooms, paraphernalia and someone to answer questions, although you're less likely to find someone for those questions in the off seasons. The park also overlooks the... More

We found all kids of neat rocks and sea shells. Dogs had a great time also.There is a little walk to get there but worth it.

The history is interesting. But otherwise just another great beach on the Oregon coast. Worth a rest break on your drive or a lunch stop.

This is just a spectacular looking "seascape" that you can enjoy from a distance if you park your car at the top of the bluff or, walk down to the beach and stroll along the shoreline. The walk is a fairly steep climb up/down to the beach - there are two picnic tables about halfway along the way. I've heard... More

Great beach - beautiful setting right on Highway 101 and great for walking. And, no trash! Definitely worth a visit.

We liked reading about the history of Battle Rock and the description of the friendly Indians eventually having to do battle; the honest interpretation.
