The day we were there, we spotted a sea lion playing in the churn. Bonus! Beautiful walk down to observe the churn ... and nice trails throughout the area. Glad we stopped.

After learning about Devil's Churn on Trip Advisor, we decided to stop and hike the area. The park is beautiful and an easy hike. Devil's Churn was mesmerizing! The powerful waves and motion of the water was amazing to watch. It's definitely worth the stop.

Interesting fissure in the rocks running back towards the highway. When the waves come in they are channeled through the fissure and (can) spray up. You can feel the force in the rocks. Small parking lot, scenic overlook and short trail (<1/4 mile with uneven...More

Nice trail to some tidepools and great views. Worth a stop and was free so why not. A river runs through into the ocean near the beach as well

There is a parking fee for the lots on site- but if you buy the parking pass from the ranger station, it is good for all park stops along the way.

Google Yachats tide conditions 2015. It's also worth noting that other weather conditions such as swell, storm etc will have an effect on your experience so watch the weather forecast for the area.
