Great place to watch the sun go down.

The bones of this ship are pretty photogenic. It's a beautiful beach to watch the sunset behind a cool structure.

Shipwreck is no more than a few rusted beams. But the beach is pleasant enough, sand is pretty soft but I'd rather go to Cannon Beach, it's much prettier.

I have been to this place many times having grown up near here. I visited again recently and brought my wife and kids. The beach around it is awesome like much of the Oregon Coast. Easy access to the site via two nearby parking lots. It can be a challenge for some as from the parking lot you do have... More

Fort Stevens SP, wonderful! Nicely spaced sites, good roads and plenty of activities. Loved the beach, the fort area and the areas overlooking the river and ocean.

I hadn't seen the shipwreck Peter Iredale since I was a child so since I was in the area stopped by. Fort Stevens is a large well liked Oregon State park. The fort was shelled in WW2 by an enemy sub and is at the mouth of the Columbia River and Pacific Ocean.

We visited the shipwreck during low tide and had a very pleasant experience. It was fun for us to be able to walk right up to the shipwreck and take pictures. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful beach that is there and even though there isn't much to the shipwreck anymore, it was well worth the trip.

See an actual shipwreck from 1906. The skeleton of this once beautiful 4 masted sailing barque is completely visible. At low tide, the shipwreck is accessible and one of the most photographed shipwrecks in the world.

Love going to Fort Stevens and seeing the iconic Peter Iredale. Great photo op at sunset. Nice beach to hang out and enjoy family time too. At Fort Stevens there is wonderful bike trails and picnic sites at coffin bury lake . Battery Russell and the museum are all great to see too. If in the area a must see... More
