Just got back from the beach. The wreck was right near parking and an easy walk. Got there at low tide, so I could walk right up to it. Got some great shots.

There is not much left of this ship wreck, but worth the drive to see it. Early morning it is not so crowed.

Still an awe-inspiring if not a bit eerie sight after 20 yrs since the last time I saw it! Low tide in the off-season is the best - in summer, there's a lot more sand burying more of the structure.

I have been visiting the wreck of the Peter Iredale for seventy years now. Each time, something is new and different. Some years, there is a lot of the wreck to view; lately, all appears to be vanishing.

If you are going to Fort Stevens, then stop here but don't make a seperate trip. It is kind of interesting but try to get there at low tide. We were there at high tide and you couldn't get close to see anything without getting wet. It does make for some beautiful sunset pictures.

Much of the ship was taken away for scrap after the wrecking, but for some reason the bow remained stuck in the sand and remains today as a play space for kids and grown ups. The beach is flat and calm, with the waves crashing into and through the hull - great fun to visit and stunning at sunset for... More

Not much left of the Peter Iredale due to weather but mostly by choice of the park due to safety issues over the years. It is very easy access to the site with your car and there is ample parking and restrooms at this beach access point. You can get up close during low tide. Recommend the stop especially if... More

How often do you get to see and touch history in it's original location??? This place is really cool for that aspect, the wreck is stretched out over the coast a bit, but the main remaining section is the first thing you'll see. It's amazing it has weathered the coast for all these years, but it is still there! Nice... More

Hard to imagine that part of this ship is still on beach after 100 years. Beautiful spot to enjoy beach and great photo op. Plenty of free parking.
