“Worth stopping for the view and photo ops!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is a tiny park in Port Orford with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, the ever-changing seascape, iconic Battle Rock, jutting up out of the surf with a twisted tree on top, and benches for sitting and looking at the picturesque cove. You might spot a whale spouting, seals, and thousands of sea birds here as well.

“Nice vista ...”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Stop here & stretch your legs... Hike down the hill to the beach & spend a few minutes watching the whales swimming in the bay. The beach is a wonderful place to walk & the scenery is terrific!!

“A whale of a day!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We usually see whales from one of several vantage points at least once during our yearly fall 2-week stay. With several parking areas it is easy to see their spoutings when they are feeding in the area.

“One of the most beautiful views on the Oregon Coast”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Whales, surfers and the most gorgeous view on the coast. Redfish Restaurant and Hawthorne Gallery, the visitor Center, our Marine Reserve and the view all make it a necessary stop.

“Not Much of a Park. Check out the Port”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Nothing wrong. There just isn't much of a park there. Battle Rock is prominent and it has historic significance but it not particularly a thing of great beauty. The harbor at Port Orford is much more interesting.
