Ellen and I visited here this afternoon. Stunning scenery and fascinating historical site. Definitely a must see in this corner of the state. Seeing the confluence of the Pacific ocean and the Columbia River is something you will never forget.

This is one of my favorite places to ride my bike. It is full of history including the Peter Iredale Shipwreck on the beach. We went in late August and then again Labor Day Weekend to see the Civil War Reenactment. I highly recommend this Park for everyone, especially history buffs. If you're in the area for Labor Day, you... More

We were a bit underwhelmed after the trip to get there. The whole area felt uncared for, ok you don't expect nature trails to be manicured but the bird hide was dilapidated, the posters faded and a general air of abandonment. We did enjoy the dunes on the Pacific side.

We arrived without reservations at 12:30pm and was greeted by staff in receptionist area that are either bored or overworked. Helpful to an extent but be prepared to go with what you want in a campsite as they are not going to suggest. Not typical of other Oregon State Parks, but this is the largest! Otherwise, beautiful sites with fluctuating... More

We went to the beach to see the shipwreck and were surprised.. The sunset here was great and we also went to the other attractions.

My husband and I enjoyed Fort Stevens State Park. We went to the gorgeous beach and saw the old ship wreck. I did not find hardly any seashells. When we looked to the south down the beach, saw mountains in the distance. We went to the lookout tower where the Columbia River dumps into the Pacific Ocean. That was a... More

Campground is very clean. Not a great amount of privacy in many of the spots, but there are some that offer a decent amount. Bathrooms and showers are clean and handy. There is a beautiful beach that is within hiking distance. The beach area has a shipwreck which is excellent for exploring and a great spot for watching the sun... More

This campsite is beautiful. We love that there are so many trees so your site is shaded. There are lots of places to visit within the Park and you can keep your family busy for days. My fiancée loved that he could go driving on the sand with his 4X4.

The park staff were helpful, the park was clean, and the firewood delivery was a unique and friendly service. But I expect a bit of space when camping, with some privacy and sense of being in the wild, even if not actually in the wilderness. We booked two nights, but left after one night because the campground full of RVs... More
