Beautiful views from the the top of the park or a nice uncrowded beach down below. Either one is relaxing and scenic. One thing, though, is that it can be quite windy there. I was talking to a guy flying a kite and he said that was why he comes there, so I take it the breezes are quite frequent.... More

A little hike down a steep cliff but well worth the walk..The beach is uncluttered and easy to walk on once you get down to it..Scattered along the way is picnic benches..There is a bathroom at top..and plenty of parking.

Stroll the beach, climb the rock where the battle took place, or sit on a bench and relax. Possible to see a whale, seals or collect agates, whatever the ocean has to offer that day. The wind does blow...take a kite!

This park is signed 'wayfinder'. I wonder what the difference between that and the standard 'wayside'. The large parking lot offers easy access to the beach. The sea stacks are photogenic. Battle Rock is adjacent. The sign said that the earliest pioneers took refuge here from unfriendly Indians.

Stopped here for lunch. After sitting on a deck overlooking the crashing waves we went for a hike. Great place to stop a there is tonnes of parking and the ocean is just a stones throw away.

Easy access beach with lots to see. At low tide you can walk through a "cave" in the rock. A short stroll down the beach to see tide pools. Great place to spot whales during their migration.

Just stopped to use the restroom here and was blown away by the awesome view of the ocean and battle rock. The whole drive down the coast is pretty epic but this was a nice place to stop, stretch my legs and catch an awesome view on a clear sunny day.

Our first evening in Port Orford was spent running the dog and throwing the ball on the beach. There was no one else there and it was beautiful. The rocks off shore were incredible.

Battle Rock Park is named after the historic battle that took place in 1851 between native American Indians and the settlers. The beach is beautiful and very clean because there are not a lot of people who visit the park. If you like history this is one place you should visit should you find yourself in the area.. It is...
