You may even spot a whale if you're lucky. The coast has the potential for rain and cold weather year-round, so dress accordingly.

  • We always enjoy coming here. The views are great, and the guides are helpful. You might even spot a gray whale. We also use it to go hiking along one of the coastal Trails down to the beach. There are a lot of places that one can go starting off at this point. But the parking is expensive unless you have a pass, and sometimes the lots can be full, not a ton of parking. We also really enjoy learning about whales there, and some of the whale artifacts that are there are really neat.
  • $85 anuual pass holder and NO PARKING! Waited half an hou then leftr. Terrible.
  • Great rangers! Wonderful views. Very educational.
  • Really beautiful hikes thru thick forest to giant trees. Great ocean views, occasional whales, eagles
  • Breathtakingly beautiful area! One of the most scenic areas on the Oregon Coast! Cape Perpetua area is A Must See! Giant Spruce Trail, Lookout Point, Thor's Well.
