Cape Arago offers beach access, interpretive trails, and opportunities for picnicking, group picnicking, fishing, hiking, viewing marine and terrestrial wildlife, and viewing scenery.
The south cove trail leads down to a sandy beach and superior tidepools where you can visit intertidal plants and animals (but please enjoy them with your eyes only). The north cove trail provides access for fishing, beachcombing, and viewing the offshore colonies of seals and sea lions at Shell Island — a designated National Wildlife Refuge. The trail is closed March 1-June 30 to protect seal pups. Picnic tables, restrooms and a gazebo shelter are available for daytime use.
: The Oregon coast receives abundant rainfall, mostly between October and April. July and August bring the best chance for clear days. Summer temperatures are normally moderate and almost never hot. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent.
Location: Cape Arago State Park is located along Oregon's South Coast, off US Highway 101, 14 miles southwest of Coos Bay.
