“Wildlife watchers wonderland!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Well worth the drive north from Bandon. Several state parks along the drive give many opportunities to stop and look for wildlife. Sealions, pelicans, harlequin ducks, grebes, perigrin falcon and osytercatchers start our list of sightings. Another "must return" from this trip.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is a great place to see the power and beauty of the Pacific Ocean. The gardens nearby are also worth the visit at various times of the year. Christmas is especially pleasant.

“Great tide pools”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

This sister park to Shore Acres (THE local MUST VISIT) boasts a spectacular seal and sea lion preserve and a fantastic beach-comber setting. At low tides, the rocky pools are overflowing with a wide variety of spectacular sea life. Children should be closely watched and sure footed.

“Seals”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

This is a nice park to go see the seals and sea lions. There must be thousands of them barking all the time. The ocean is beautiful from there also. A perfect spot for a to get together for some family fun and food. The tall trees surrounding the park makes it peaceful.
