Ecola State Park offers beach access and provides opportunities viewing outstanding coastal scenery, beach combing, hiking, fishing, surfing and picnicking.
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.
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.
Vital stats: A small day-use fee or an annual parks pass is required for entry to the park.
: 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 and does not stay on the ground for long.
Location: Ecola State Park is located on Oregon's North Coast, off U.S. Highway 101, two miles north of Cannon Beach.
