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.

The shipwreck is on the beach, adjacent to the state park. Beautiful scenery on both the shore and in the park.

It only takes a few minutes to see, and I wouldn't travel out of my way to see it. But if I was visiting the park, as I was for bike riding, it's worth stopping by and taking a look.

A must see! It is so cool to see an old iron ship rusting on the beach. There are barnacles attached to it. Great photo opportunities. The beach is lovely and a nice place to walk and do some beach combing.

There's not a lot left of this iron steam ship now so it's not really a very interesting tourist attraction but standing on the beach on a sunny but windy day is a great cure for anything wrong. Wonderful!

but from the little you can see, it's kind of hard to tell. Still though, it's in a nice section of beach on the Oregon coast, with a LOT of other stuff to do in the area while you're here.

When ever we visit the Oregon Coast we always make a stop at the Peter Iredale. No 2 trips have been the same and you never know how much of the shipwreck you will see. This trip much of the remains of the ship were open, enough sand had been swept out and tide was low. I never tire of... More

Such amazing history here. Love the sandy beach! But be careful not to get stuck in the sand ;) Check out its history online before going. Take the kids or the better half!!!

Great chance to see the bones of a sailing vessel. Shipwrecked over 100 years ago, this makes for great photos.
