We stopped in here mainly to use the restroom. Decided to walk down the path even though it was low tide. The path is paved and well maintained. The lookouts nice and great views. It was just much steeper coming back up than it seemed...More

This is a short stop on the coast. Well worth the effort. You can hike down to an overlook that is pretty amazing

I had read to stop at high tide, so we did, but not much was happening at the Churn. Nice path, clean bathrooms. Nice view. But not a critical stop, especially if you're short on time

Path down was easy for us to access, steps and weather might hinder those with handicaps. We love to see geological sights along the coast

We enjoyed spending almost an hour watching a whale along with spouting, waves, and thundering sounds of Devil's Churn. You can also see Thor's Well from the same location. If it's a clear day, you will likely see whales feeding right off the coast.

We sure wish we had stopped at this park during high tide. At low tide, you can certainly see the slot where the water rushes in from the ocean and would hit the end and explode upward. I'm sure it would be spectacular. Short hiking...More

There are two levels of parking available plus restroom facilities. We took a short path down to get a view of the waves crashing into the rocks which must be spectacular during a storm.

Unfortunately we were there at the wrong time. I'm sure this is lovely when the tide is coming in and the little trail around the loop was very pretty.

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.
