There is a beautiful drive through thick forests after to leave highway 101. When you arrive at the parking lot (after the toll booth - $5) there are a number of trails you can take. One takes you to a beautiful view of Cannon Beach,...More

The road through the park is beautiful through the woods to the beach. Narrow with two cars just able to pass each other. Lots of trails to walk on. The park does have a day fee of $5 if just visiting.

It take about 1 hour each way to hike from the Ecola state park parking lot to the lighthouse viewpoint. Along the way are several viewpoints. Need to bring your own water. Bring some binoculars for possible whale sighting.

Great views of Cannon Beach and Tillamook light house. The road to Indian beach was backed up almost to the entrance. So, we didn't even make it there. The view from Ecola Point area was worth it alone. A must if you're in Cannon Beach.

Ecola State Park covers a long distance on the coast, but I imagine many see just the southern part. Access is through a nice drive from the highway to an entrance station where a fee is collected. Then another drive brings you to the parking...More

Personally, I don't know but the state park brochure mentions camping. I read in the park brochure there is primitive hiker's camp at the northern point of Ecola State Park near Bird Point.
