  • This area was so much fun. Wonderful beach to walk on and explore. Bring your bikes! There are plenty of bike paths to ride on...but bring the mosquito repellent... 
  • The wreck has almost disappeared. It's no longer a featured attraction. Let it go. There are many more attractive beaches. 
  • Got great photos of the shipwreck. Saw elk. The beach was beautiful! It really was a perfect place to go as a couple

  • The park is beautiful! The best part for me is the week we spent we were completely unplugged. AT&T doesn't work at the campground. Also we were in a site that couldn't get satellite service either. At first, we were a bit miffed but it turned puff to be a wonderful blessing. The bathrooms could have been cleaner. The loop we stayed in had no sewer connections. We had water and 50 amp service. There were 32 sites taken by our group. It was a wonderful time and being unplugged helped us reconnect with each other and those we love.
  • See the historic area where the Columbia feeds into the Pacific. Great beaches and well-equipped campground. Very close to Astoria, where you can find great restaurants, shops, breweries, and camping gear. Just be prepared as it can get cool and windy.
  • We only visited the Wreck of the Peter Iredale but this alone was great. It was neat to see a real shipwreck, but the ease of beach access was also a great plus. It was a great beach to walk along to find sea shells and sand dollars. We were there not long after low tide but there really wasn't much of the shipwreck visible, at least not as much as you typically see in photos of the Peter Iredale, but the fact of seeing any part of a shipwreck older than 100 years was worth the visit in my mind.
  • Weather predictors indicated rain and clouds. We pressed ahead changing our reservations to a cabin from a yurt. What a great surprise! The 2 year old cabin was beautifully done in light wood paneling. The floors were a laminate darker wood. The space was perfectly clean! The cabins have a microwave, frig and sink. The table seats four. We needed a fifth chair for our card game. The sleeping situation is the same as the yurts. Bring towels and bedding. You may also want extra hangers for damp coats. You need supplies to wash dishes and a table cloth for the outside picnic table. There is a fire ring and wood for sale. Bring camp chairs for the fire ring area. We used the outdoor grill in the pouring rain. The nice neighbor helped us start it. When it was not raining, it started right up. The covered deck also has a long bench. The weather during the day was beautiful! We hiked, looked for mushrooms and elk, walked on the beach and went into town. What a great weekend away! Also the staff is super helpful and friendly! We will be back!
  • Im only 14 i have been going there for 10years now and i still love it! The campsites hiking trails ship wreak and others are pike the best! It may take a little time to get there but every second is a memory that you would want to remember forever!
