Drop by this little park to catch some scenic views of the rock formations along the edge of the Pacific ocean. Looking for whales out in the distance didn't see anything today. Park is beautiful views of the ocean and down the coastline Lincoln.

Great view, picnic tables, flushing restrooms (handicapped stall not great for wheelchairs), some paved trails (including to restroom--could use a little refreshing). Parking could get full in summer high volume. Right off Hwy 101.

Such an incredible view of the beautiful Oregon coast! Lots of parking made it very easy to enjoy the views and the sea gulls! Definitely a “not to be missed” when traveling Hwy 101.

There were lots of trees. There were lots of boulders in the ocean and the ocean was really calm. We saw mostly cliffs and we found a hole in a rock. Beautiful! A boat came by nearby us. Worthwhile to see!
