Saw the Peter Iredale many years ago and knew I wanted to go back next time on the coast. Hoping it hadn't deteriorated too much from last time and because we went at low tide it... read more

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

This is a pretty impressive wreck. It's weird seeing it on the beach, it makes you think about what it must of been like when it happened. It's a great beach and the park - Fort Stevens is awesome.

Saw the Peter Iredale many years ago and knew I wanted to go back next time on the coast. Hoping it hadn't deteriorated too much from last time and because we went at low tide it was still very large and able to go right to it.

The wreckage is really neat and not quite what I expected it is metal and is a great place to take pictures. The stretch of beach this is on is just beautiful. If in the area do not miss this you can view it in just a few minutes as it is very close to parking.

Great dog friendly beach! Warrenton also has a really nice dog park not too far from the Peter Iredale! Separate fenced areas for large and small dogs. It's next to a park. Lots of shade. It's on NW Warrenton Dr.

The story of the Peter Iredale is an interesting story and visiting the wreck is worth the effort and drive. The wreck continues to change due to weather and tides, so each visit will be unique.
