We were attracted by the shipwreck called Peter Iredale but realized the shipwreck is a tiny part of the whole thing this hidden gem has to offer. Check out the yurts and cabins while you're here. We will be back for sure
Lots to see here. There is lots of camping with bike rentals in the State Park. Across the road at the Entrance is also a KOA campground. There is a paved walking / bike path throughout the park. The park goes along the Pacific Ocean...More
It was attacked by a Japanese submarine in WW2. History at your finger tips. Walking tours of the coastal artillery gun emplacements and the nearby buildings are a great way to get a feel for what is was like to defend America's shoreline against attack...More

I travelled there last year and ft Stevens really didn’t have a campsite that I would consider close to the beach. The beach is walking distance but it is a walk. You can drive out to the beach and there is a parking area there. Oregon State does have other campgrounds that have camping close to the beach. Waldport Oregon has a campground that is just off the beach.

camped there in July. there are several loops...park is so big I cannot advise an obvious difference...but would suggest you avoid being next to restroom, and look at size of the tent pad, and try to determine from the campsite map if a site seems to have more privacy or is larger. the park is likely to be full. be prepared for Sandy site, they do not say on the website. .a lot of them have sand! and I would lean towards a shaded or partially shaded site...we enjoyed this park a lot, lots to do.
Whirlwind Trip Report: Oct. 2-7 to OR & E. WA (5 Replies)
My good hiking friend and I just got back from a wonderful whirlwind trip to the Oregon and E. WA. area. On the trip, we visited several places I had never gotten to visit yet out West, and we certainly weren't disappointed! Oct. 2 - Arrived in Portland at PDX around 11am. Drove up to Portland Women's Forum Viewpoint & Vista House just as the clouds were lifting and were greeted with delightful views of the Gorge. Stopped at Starvation Creek Falls as we headed out to Walla Walla, WA...More
