Tips

As of June 2020, park is open on regular hours. Restroom is open. Be prepared to turn around if crowded. Facilities may close without notice. https://stateparks.oregon.gov/index.cfm?do=parkPage.dsp_parkPage&parkId=147 Crashing waves pound basalt cliffs, while harbor seals and sea lions hide out in a sheltered cove. The short hike around Seal Rock State Wayside rewards you with wildlife, crashing waves, and a chance to pick around the tidepools. Make sure you hike down to the south end of the beach to check out the pools - and be sure to watch for seals and sea lions in the surf or on the offshore rocks.

Watch out for the tides, you can't reach the tidepools except at low tide. Keep your dogs on a leash at this park, the area is a seabird nesting sanctuary.

One of the most beautiful beaches! A pod of seals bobbing around the rocks could be seen by binoculars. Dogs are welcome and love to run here. Make sure you check the tides to have some beach to roam on.

The views were fantastic and so was the tide pooling. The waves crashing against the rock was very beautiful

First to Review

It looked like a less popular beach with some rock climbing opportunities if you're into that, although it's probably frowned upon. It's not a very big area and I didn't find myself spending a whole lot of time there before I was done with it.
