This is a beautiful beach and a great place to walk, enjoy the coastal scenery or beachcomb. Caution to visitors; be aware of the tide! It is possible to become stranded at high tide when exploring the point. Take a look at the stagecoach trail, the view of Haystack Rock, a small waterfall and the two caves around the point, but have a plan before straying too far. Pick up a tide book at one of the local shops, have fun and be safe.

Ecola State Park offers beach access and provides opportunities viewing outstanding coastal scenery, beach combing, hiking, fishing, surfing and picnicking.<\/p>

Feel the wind on your face and blowing through your hair. This is one of the most photographed locations in Oregon -- once you've taken in the view, you'll be searching for your camera, too. How about a picnic lunch, some time to feed the gulls and then a short drive to the Indian Beach parking lot? This is a popular place for surfers to park and walk down to the beach, and is the only way to reach the beach from the park.<\/p>\r\n

A six-mile segment of the Oregon Coast Trail leads through the park. A primitive campground for hikers traveling the Oregon coast trail lies near the military bunker viewpoint.<\/p>\r\n

Vital stats: A small day-use fee or an annual parks pass is required for entry to the park.<\/p><\/p>","post_name":"ecola-state-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.9229","lng":"-123.969","distance":"4.0","permalink":"\/see-do\/natural-wonders\/forests-parks-refuges\/state-parks\/ecola-state-park\/","terms":"a State Park<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"5593","post_title":"Oswald West State Park","post_content":"This beautiful park offer beach access and opportunities for tent camping, hiking, picnicking, fishing, swimming, surfing and viewing scenery.

Although the walk is short, there are several different trails to the beach and lead you to the Cape Falcon overlook or to the Pacific Coast Trail. The park includes a 13-mile stretch of the Oregon Coast Trail. Be sure to pick up a map on the way into the park. All of the trails to the beach are through a mature forest; one trail follows the winding path of the Short Sands creek. This trail gives way to the spectacular view of the ocean and the creek meeting. This is your first glimpse of the ocean and Short Sands beach.

The beach is nestled in a cove that provides you with a feeling of total privacy. Popular with windsurfers and boogie boarders, the beach is always alive with activity. Surrounded by the mountains, the beach at Oswald West gives you a sense of being transported away from the trials of everyday life. Lose yourself; find Oswald West State Park.

Vital stats: Open March - November. The walk-in campground offers 29 walk-in tent sites (wheelbarrows provided). The campsites are first-come, first-served.<\/p>","post_name":"oswald-west-state-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.7698","lng":"-123.96","distance":"7.5","permalink":"\/see-do\/natural-wonders\/forests-parks-refuges\/state-parks\/oswald-west-state-park\/","terms":"a State Park<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"}]},"success":true,"html":""}
