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

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

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

You can't drive past this view without stopping, it's so awe-inspiring! Take a moment to walk down onto the beach and enjoy the mocha sands laden with quartz which sparkle in the sun. It's gorgeous!
