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...

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 :-)
