“Awesome views”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Oswald West was a governor of Oregon who had the foresight to set aside all of the Oregon coast as public lands so everyone could enjoy them in the future. This park named in his honor, has several turn-outs along Hwy. 101 with spectacular views of the coast.
