An absolutely stunning park with the most amazing views of Cannon Beach. Easy walks to the viewpoint and Indian Beach. When you see pictures or painting of Oregon - that is the view you will get here. Perfect place for a picnic or just sit...More

...some areas are closed due to erosion,so it's impossible to get the full effect. There are still beautiful views, but if it's hiking you want, check first to see if trails are open. It's a great place for wide open views of the ocean and...More

We went on a Sunday primarily to see Tillamook lighthouse. The road to the entrance is hardly bigger than one lane. The traffic was terrible. Stop and go. We found there wasn't anyone "manning" the gate. People were purchasing day passes from a ticket machine....More

One of my favorite views in the U.S. is from Ecola State Park. I was disappointed upon visiting this past month, to learn that some of the trails have been damaged by winter storms. They were blocked with a sign saying such, and that they...More

The coastline view to the south is beautiful and reminds me of Carmel, CA. Majestic rocks rise out of the ocean near the beach. An abandoned lighthouse is visible on a tiny rocky island offshore. Restrooms, park benches and walking paths are available, but no...More

We visited Ecola to capture the views of beach and rocks on a sunny day. We were a bit disappointed that some of the trails were closed including those to the point due to landslides. A herd of elk were grazing nearby.

Take hiking boots (waterproof) and just watch the locals on the huge beachfront. There were runners and families every day of our stay, enjoying the packed sand.

I have been here twice and it's just gorgeous. I love this park. For a $5 entry, it really can't be beat. Lots of trails and parking. Lovely spot for a picnic.
