This shipwreck is on a beautiful beach in the Ft. Stevens State Park. I would have given it 5 stars, but I was a little put off by the automobile traffic on the beach. Other than that, it's a great attraction.

Beautiful beach. Kids love to climb on the boat and run down the sand dunes. The ship is slowly going away so it's a must see piece of history before it's gone

Friendly staff but the place needs some TLC. Not kept very well. The drinks are affordable and made strong if that's what you like.

As a first time visitor ,the shipwreck was smaller than what I had imagined . I knew it was just a portion of the ship , it is quite small but still very cool to see . There are restrooms available next to the parking lot . Four wheel drive vehicles can drive out on to the beach . While... More

Great stop to take in the sights of a real shipwreck. You don't get to see one of these everyday! At low tide, you can walk to the wreck, but our timing wasn't so lucky.

Where else in the world can you see the remains of a ship wreck , in person? Yes some of the pictures look better, but remember it is still deteriorating !! Enjoy it for what it is, an opportunity not often found!!!!

Most people go here to take pictures of the beach, themselves, families, and the shipwreck, some people go there and let their kids climb on it like it's a play place. Be responsible and don't let your kids climb on a rusty old ship frame.

It was interesting to see the shipwreck. It was a little weird to me that kids were climbing all over it. I mean it is rusty and not smooth. It was cool to see though. The beach was very nice as well. I mean how often do you get to see a shipwreck.

Wasn't really spectacular, but the beach was nice. All there is is some metal pieces which looked like a whale skeleton.

How can I rate a shipwreck? It's on a nice beach in Fort Stevens State Park, and it was very interesting to see. I'd never seen a wrecked ship before, though this is really just the rusted and barnacle-covered frame of one. Changes in sand levels may expose or hide parts of it at different times of the year.
