Devil's Churn, Cook's Chasm, and the spouting horn are all fascinating, natural wonders. Plan your visit at high tide, and let the ocean truly impress you! Stay awhile after and explore the tide pools that house creatures in between... More

I went with my wife and toddler. All the trails are easy to navigate, and most seemed paved. We wandered around on the beach and got some great shots of the water crashing on the old lava flows.

Such a pretty view, a small drive up a beautiful hill road. You have to check out this amazing view if you're anywhere near Yachats.

The walk to the beach from the visitors center was a nice walk. We participated in the nature talk with Michael and it was well worth the 90 minutes. We learned a lot about the area and the plants. The views from the top of the cape are absolutely stunning and the best on the coast. It is easy to... More

Hike to Thor's Well and the Spouting Horn was awesome. Easy hike down to the water. We were mesmerized watching the water pour in and out of Thor's Well. Tons of edible berries along the trail.

Climbing to the top of the cape gives visitors one of the best views of the Oregon Coast. Best to go on a clear day to get the full effect.

If you are close, go see it. The view is worth the effort. Use the entrance to the campground, but go up the road pass the campgrounds all the wY to the top

We drove the PCH and pulled over to see the lovely rocks and ocean breaking and spraying the area. An extremely scenic drive worth going a bit out of the way for.

Devil's Churn, Thor's Well, viewpoint from the top of the park. It was all fun and beautiful! (Thor's Well and surrounding tidepools were the highlight, though.)
