Fort Stevens park is a very well maintained, beautiful park.. The beaches are expansive and pleasant, with lots of room for everyone. The Jetty overlook is nice and the wildlife boardwalk interesting. The WW2 Gun battery was very interesting. We had a lot of fun.

Don't miss this fabulous park! So many turnouts to see the ocean and the Columbia River; ours was #39 and it was a beautiful secluded beach along the ocean. This park has so much history.

This was a must visit park for us because of the shipwreck. The beach that the shipwreck is on is spectacular. We were there on a day when the fog rolled in heavy, and it was just surreal. We also visited one of the forts and the Columbia river overlook. There was a lot to see and do here, would... More

The beach with the ship wreck was very neat to go to. Fort Stevens itself was a bit under whelming and I expected more. Been to other forts that were better. Kind of expected more, as this place was attacked by Japanese in WW2

We went to take photos of the Peter Iredale remnants. But there are a lot of people who like to hang around and climb on what's left of the wreck. That's OK if you don't mind a bunch of strangers in your photos. We were there close to sunset, so crowds were beginning to gather. Unless you are there to... More

We set off to see the old ship wreck. We found the wreck easily and then drove further into the park. We visited the overlook of the river me walked a few of the trails. A good day out.

Just a jewel to visit on the Oregon Coast. The beaches are wonderful and the views are astonishingly beautiful.

This is a lovely beach and camping area that is easy to get to and has excellent parking. The wreck on the beach is slowly sinking into the sand. It is very hard to get an impactful image of it....but it is always worth a try.

This park has terrific views of the ocean. The shipwreck is a bonus and provides lots of photo ops and the gun battery is a must see for anyone interested in war time artifacts. Who knew that the US had been shelled WWII.
