A great surprise. Lovely beach with great sand dunes and miles of walking. Bit windy but didn't effect our time which included a great beach picnic sat on the logs and driftwood. Got a parking space right at the beach at about 12noon but still didn't seem that busy.

The park is large, there are wooded areas and areas with beach access on the Pacific Ocean and on the Columbia River at a point where the river meets the sea. Nice picnic area. A park ranger exhibited a display of native animals of the area. We saw a fledgling bald eagle on what might have been a first flight.

Good tent sites or tiny cabins. Must drive to beach. Good bath and shower facilities. Check out the Fort itself for views and roses.

This park made an impression on me as a child and as an adult it is still a nice visit. Great for military,history or even nature buffs. Five dollar entrance fee, and then you can walk around the fort on your own. Picnic tables and bathrooms on site, as well as a small gift shop

We stayed here for two nights in the campground as we began our coastal RV trip of Washington and Oregon states. The two nights we stayed in early August it poured cats and dogs! Obviously this was entirely circumstantial but we had a damp experience! If you plan to stay here in a tent, make sure you bring tarps for... More

We camped with large group for 3 nights. Great experience. Camp sites are mostly open to each other with little privacy, but that was good for our group. Visited the jetty, beach and Peter Iredale shipwreck, lake. Fire-pit, electric, and water at each site and bike trails. Nice state park!
