Pretty place for pictures

It is at the end of a dead end road but you won't be disappointed to do the drive. Lots of scenery and a trail that is steep to go down on the beach.

We were delighted to see whales at this park. It was close to the beach where we could see their tales as they dove down deeper. The landscape was very green and lush on the drive to the park.

Guided tide pool tours make this a great place to visit while in the area. The Ranger guided tours take place during low tide and are a great way to learn more about the small marine life that inhabit the area. Dates and times for the tours arrested posted online and at the park.

What a great find! Beautiful scenery and plenty of places to hike! The sealions are a kick to watch! We were fortunate enough to spot a playful whale hanging out at the end of the road. Dont miss this if in the area!

No trip to the Oregon coast is complete without seeing the Cape Arago State Park. Nothing speaks of the Oregon beauty as much as the Cape Arago State Park. Beautiful views of the coastline and ocean. Pack a picnic and spend the day enjoying it's splendor. Several picnic tables including a covered area, many walking trails and restroom facilities available.... More

Our family visited this park since it was just a 15 minute drive from our vacation rental. It was a nice day (mid-60's), so the views were impressive. We explored some of the paths and the gardens. The rose garden was in bloom and we enjoyed smelling and picking out our favorites. In addition, the restroom facilities were fully functional... More

As someone who grew up in the area, I always took these parks and beaches for granted. Stopping here on 08/02, made me realize how lucky i was to have grown up here. This park is phenomenal, secluded beaches, peaceful vistas, beautiful scenery and a distant but nice view of the Cape Arago lighthouse. This is not a park you... More

We stopped here to see what we could discover and we weren't disappointed. You walk down a trail and it turns off to different areas where you can walk or sit and admire the view. As we walked a long a bit we realized we had a better view of the sealions. It made our day even more special! :)
