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.

Visiting the northern portion of the Oregon Coast with the girls, 14 and 11, this was to be our last beach visit before heading homeward. We arrived before 10am at low tide on a Friday in late July and pretty much had the beach to ourselves. Another beautiful beach littered with sand dollars and jellyfish. Only a few hundred yards...

This looks better in the pictures. I was very disappointed when I saw it. I wouldn't make a special trip out here, but would definitely visit it if I'm already at the park. Up close its just rusted metal-make sure you had your tetanus shot!

Totally worth the drive👍 Unfortunatly there were people climbing all over the wreckage. Wishing there were signs asking people to stay off of the structure. Very cool!

There isn't much left of the Peter Iredale. You must go at low tide in order to see what's left of the ship. The beach is nice but the ship is not handicap accessible. You must walk through the sand to get to the ship.

The only think that makes this unique is that there are not many places where you can view an old shipwreck. The beach is very nice, but parking is limited.

The Peter Iredale is the rusty framework of the bow of a wreck from 1906. It's on a nice beach and easy to get to. We've been several times. I'd recommend at least stopping and getting a picture. Not many places to see a beach wreck.

The wreck of the Peter Iredale is located in Fort Stevens State Park. It was much smaller than I thought it would be and there were lots of people on the beach and around the wreck, so it was impossible to get a good picture of it. Also, the walk to get to the wreckage isn't easy if you aren't... More
