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

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

If you are camping this is a must! Even if you're not you can drive down to the beach and see the wreak. You can walk up to it and actually see history! For the kids, tide pools hold crabs and many other sea life.

Fascinating bit of maritime history on an Oregon beach. So fun to walk around at low tide and to capture amazing sunset pictures.

This weekend I drove my kids into Fort Stevens State Park so they could see something "interesting". We parked and climbed over the sand dune- they were amazed! They immediately ran down and all around the beach to check out this amazing, rusted shipwreck on the beach. They even asked me if it was real! We were lucky in our... More
