This visit was interesting. It was a cool and foggy day in The Astoria area and slowly burning off. When we reached the beach the sand was warming and cold waves an ocean breeze developed fog as it hit the beach. Interesting phenomenon watching the fog develop and roll right at you.

Camped here for 2 nights and was very pleasant. Gentle sea breezes kept us cool and refreshed. The sea was calm and the walks were awesome. The wreck on the beach is a great starting point for many walks. The fort walks are fun and informative and offer some of the best views of the area..... Never had time to... More

Decided to hit up the shipwreck as we were passing through on our way to Rockaway. Pulled up kids ran to the shipwreck and we ran back. Not the best attraction to see on the coast but pretty interesting. Parking is free for the shipwreck. Didn't see any other part of the park.

Stayed at the state campground and wandered this entire park. It was enjoyable to see what they have been able to save and restore. There was a Civil War Era reenactment group using the park while we were there and it was also very informative. There is some climbing to get to the top of the parapets. Good trails, but... More

This state park is great. There are areas for free parking which is nice. We parked in the central area and walked to the fort. You can explore there for awhile. We also went and saw the shipwreck. You could easily spend the entire day there. I will note part of the park is on the Columbia river and we... More

Great park to explore history in and also spend time in the great outdoors. Drive slow!! Deer tend to pop out of nowhere and jet across the roadway often - no joke, every single time I am there this happens. Park and walk or park and ride your bike - just get out of the car.

Good place to camp and visit the surrounding area. The beach was great and seeing the old ship wreck. Interesting history in the park and near by with the Russel Battery. Unfortunately the mosquitos were large and bad.

This is an easily accessible beach with an interesting shipwreck that makes for great pictures. Easy, beautiful way to dip your toes in the Pacific.

We try to stay here when we are on the pacific coast. It's always clean and friendly but this trip I think they need to do a little shower maintenance. Awesome beach and things to see and do!
