The views from this park are absolutely breathtaking. You can see all the way to the Olympic Mountain Range with boats and islands dotting the seascape.

Such an incredible place to hike and take in the gorgeous views. Were able to see orcas just off the coast and the view of the light house was picture perfect!

This spot was one of our favorite stops along the Scenic Byway! Great picture opps. We visited in the off season, but we'd definitely return to take in whale watching and visit the Interpretive Center. A lovely area with walking paths and several picnic tables.

Very nice state park: well maintained, lots of parking and easy access to the coast line. Scenes of the rugged coast line with the lighthouse are spectacular.
