We were just cruising up the Oregon coast to find something new. It was free because my husband has a Golden Age Pass, plus no one else was there. I love enjoying attractions when less folks are there, because I have days when I am moving a little slower than our visitors from big, busy cities.
Restrooms were average.There were flush toilets and sink to wash hands-Yay!
Some sporadic picnic tables.
The hiking trails are around 2 miles. If you like, just venture out to get some good looks of the windswept trees, all growing in the directions wind has shaped them. Don't miss little Lake Darlingtonia. ( I call it the tiny lake with the big name! ) There is a crystal clear stream/river and dunes rise up before the ocean, but not as steep as some of the ones from the southward dunes, kind of blended with small bushes and scrub. Informational plaques here and there will tell you where you are and who made it possible for the site to be saved for viewing. There is a viewing deck we stopped at for awhile and we sat close and snapped some pictures of the wind trying to get us. Certain areas are protected for nesting birds, and if you stick to the trail, they will come out and watch you carefully. " The Avian Protection Force ", ha ha.
We enjoyed a small picnic in our truck because of the wind, but then headed out onto another trail. This was a great stop.
( Note: I noticed when we went back the other day the fee box and envelopes for it were gone. I do not know if fees are still charged. Perhaps it is being replaced. )
