We rented a yurt to escape the city and enjoy the tumultuous oregon coast weather. The stay was amazing with plenty of coast to enjoy. The shipwreck was interesting and we loved being close to fun and funky astoria.

From Astoria, this is not that far. You cross over Young Bay bridge and will easily find the park. Get a park map and take the road towards the jetty. There are 4 parking lots in different areas. We stopped at two - I believe it was "D" parking lot that had the observation deck (a couple of flights up... More

We visited Fort Stevens State Park over a cold & rainy weekend, so we did not spend much time enjoying the views and walking the trails. At one point it was hailing so hard that our dog refused to get out of the car! However, seeing the location where the powerful Pacific Ocean meets the Columbia River was amazing. We... More

We went out to the south jetty. There is an observation deck with great view of the south shore, south jetty, and river/ocean confluence. The jetty is sharp, massive boulders and breaking waves, so I wouldn't go out on it unless it was a peaceful day. Nice view.

Park has Cabins, Yurts, Full hook-up RV and tent sites available. BIG trail system that runs through the woods, sand dunes, and along the river/ocean front for miles. This was a favorite summer camp spot when I was a child (long time ago!) and remains so today

They charge an admittance fee which was too high in my opinion, but they have a nice collection of WW II artifacts.

We thought this place was really neat. It's pretty spread out but easy to drive around. We saw a whole herd of elk near the museum! And check out the old army cemetery. Just be respectful of what it is.

Arriving without reservations sometimes causes problems. Cancellations can periodically open sites. Weekends and summer months are busy with families. Kids are never bored. Ranger Talks after dusk, are another attraction, as the docents often reveal history with visuals from a projector. Peter Iredale wreck remains on the beach, are close enough to walk or ride a bike on the RV,... More

Lots of great trails and beautiful scenery. We geocache and there are a lot located in this park. The campsites are well laid out and they even have yurts and cabins to rent. Well recommended to visit.
