Call ahead This experience may be open for on-site visitation; however, offerings and/or operating procedures may have changed due to COVID-19. Please verify details before you go and visit the COVID-19 Resources page for more information.

The Peter Iredale, a four-masted, steel ship, ran ashore in 1906 and is now one of the most accessible shipwrecks on the West Coast. It has remained here, slowly decaying on the shore for more than a century. At low tide, visitors can walk up to the vessel’s remains and wonder about how it met such a fate.  The shipwreck is located just beyond the parking lot at Fort Stevens State Park.
