“Stunning”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is a 10 out of 10 park for stunning scenery, helpful rangers and solitude. It was well worth the drive from Portland. The other side trip down the Columbia River Gorge was lovely but this was spectacular!

“Most scenic along the mid oregon coast”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

What an absolutely stunning place to visit!!!!! Can't say enough about the Oregon State Park system with nearly a state park every mile or two along the coast. This park had beautiful rocky views, beaches and great hiking trails. Not to be missed!

“Amazing views”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

The views were panoramic and the weather was very cooperative that day. We could have seen whales if we had our binoculars with us. The Shelter Overlook was particularly interesting. The trails were very well maintained.

“Really cool place!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

If you love to hike, camp, get educated on the area....then this is the place for you! You can hike or drive up to the scenic point on top to get an amazing view out on the ocean. Be sure to bring your camera & binoculars! There is a nice interpretive center with gift shop in the main park. On the other side of the highway, just north of, is Spouting Horn (really cool). There is a little snack shop & restrooms as well. A MUST see!
