Oregon State Parks are very difficult to get into during the summer months, especially along the Oregon Coast. This is a well kept and very crowded state park. Showers/bathrooms need to be upgraded; they are very old and worn down. Park fee includes free entrance...More

This Oregon state park was well staffed with rangers and awesome programs for all ages. We absolutely loved the banana slug class, the coastal walk and the tide pool tour. The camp hosts were friendly and readily available. The showers were free and hot. Sunset...More

The beach is covered with water, at high tide, but at low tide, it is a great place to walk and tide pool. Highly recommended.

Just happened to be driving by Sunset Bay State Park at sunset - mind blown at the beauty! Pictures barely capture how incredible and special it was. Tide pools were fun (I even ate some fresh seaweed). Oregon State Parks are THE BEST!

There are three state parks a short distance apart that may be accessed a short drive from Coos Bay off US 101 with the first being Sunset Bay. We stopped for the view of the sandy beach and sea cliffs.

All Oregon State Park deluxe and rustic yurts/cabins are said to have a heater per their website. It’s been my experience that there is one (sometimes two) but can not speak to this park specifically. Hope you go!
