This is a nice little park off 101 in port orford. You can sit at the benches at the parking lot, take a short hike town to the beach, or be adventurous and take a moderate hike up on battle rock. I've done it in dress shoes it's not that bad, but it's not easy either. The weather is a... More

A great view of the rock and the history behind it... To bad these early Oregon pioneers just took the place from the Native American

Park is located just off the 101 in Port Orford. There is a large parking lot and a large sign that explains the significance of the rock. A trail leads to the beach and you are able to climb the rock. Also very scenic place just to stop and rest. There are a few restaurants close by that you can... More

Very pretty spot to stop and enjoy the ocean waves on a clear day. I walked along the beach there which was not too crowded mid-week and just loved the sound of the waves and the views too. Parking is just above where it is located too so easy access.

Easy to get to with lots of parking, right off 101 in Port Orford. But, not much to see here, although signs explain the historical events. Good beach access.

If you are driving down Hwy 101, this is a great place for a rest stop. The views are stunning, even if you don't get out of your car. Whales can be seen blowing from here often in the summer. If you are more adventurous, there is beach access via a dune trail, and from there you can walk a... More

There isn't much here other than rocks to climb, a beach to stroll on and nature to view. But it was very beautiful and relaxing and i would suggest going here. Battle Rock itself was good to climb up, but watch the small kids on top as there are no safety railings.

By all means, pull over into this little park. Get out, stretch your legs, and take the short walk down to the beach. Beautiful. Quiet. Uncrowded.

Nice walk om the beach while waiting for a table at the nearby Crazy Norwegian's Fish and chips. Cool passage through the rock and beautiful views.
