This beach has an old shipwreck. It is on the beach but in the surf so depending on the time of day/tides you can walk out and examine the boat. It is very rusty but many kids play on it (shrug). What I think makes the Peter Iredale great is the photo opportunity. Around sunset you can get some great... More

We detoured out of our way to see the wreck of the Peter Iredale in Fort Stevens state Park. Maybe on a warmer, sunnier day, when there were fewer people around, it might be worth it, or if you are staying at the park. Don't be misled by the on-line photos. There is less left to the wreck than those... More

Looking at the hulk reminds you of just how dangerous the entrance to the Columbia river really is. Read the story on line before or after to better understand it.

It was OK, just a broken down old ship. I understand it has history and I tried to appreciate that. The Museum was a better choice for me.

The Peter Iredale shipwreck was our first stop after staying in Astoria, OR and driving the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway. The Peter Iredale was a large, four-masted, steel sailing vessel from England that ran aground in 1906. Little remains of the steel frame but the impression left with me was still quite grand as it is not very often that... More

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.
