This wonder involves a gentle climb but it’s well pathed. If you like to climb on the rocks it’s doable with care. It’s amazing to see as is all the nature along the coast. Take your time and explore the coast highway.

I've seen Devil's Churn at high tide, on days when the ocean is angry, and on sunny quiet late afternoons. It will always be beautiful to me. If a person wants to really see some action, definitely go at high tide, at least that is...More

The view is ok but it is a pity you cannot get inside or at least I did not know how to get there. It is a good stop if you are in the area

I have seen the Devil's Churn over the course of many years and at different times of year. It is always worth a stop to look over quickly and see what it is doing. It is always quite a site, but when it is really...More

The beauty of the Oregon Coast all wrapped up into one relatively small package. Towering, tree-lined hills and granite carved out by the sea and on today's experience, you can see how it's carved out what it has. Crashing waves and thunderous roars and lots...More

Lovely. Area with a lot to offer. The actual “churn” is fun to watch, especially when the tide is right. Take the relatively easy walking path down to the tide pool area or go on to the beach. Definitely worth the time.

There is a parking fee for the lots on site- but if you buy the parking pass from the ranger station, it is good for all park stops along the way.

Google Yachats tide conditions 2015. It's also worth noting that other weather conditions such as swell, storm etc will have an effect on your experience so watch the weather forecast for the area.
