Every time we visit our family in Charleston, OR we always hike the trails along the coast in this state park. This trip the waves were great and splashed way up to the top of the cliffs. We always see sea lions, whales, and the scenery is spectacular, a must see place to visit.

OMG what a view!! Crashing waves coming ashore during a high surf warning, soooo worth seeing! We drove a couple hours just to see it and it was enormous. These pictures were taken a little further north at Shore Acres State Park. I have never seen waves crash to several hundreds of feet high at the Oregon coast, but still... More

Love this place. Have enjoyed camping at Sunset Bay and falling asleep to the sound of sea lions.but a bit to blustery to hear them this trip, though saw plenty. Epic storms rolled in Thanksgiving week and watched waves over 100ft crash onto the rocks. Really nice hiking/walking, not strenuous but be sure to pack rain gear no matter when... More

We took the short drive from Shore Acres Park to this point. The views a great. This would make a great place to have a picnic if the wind takes a break.

Went here when camping in the area. The views of seals in the bay from here are very good. Getting there on a windy day like when we visited was a bit of a challenge but was worth it, great views.

This is easily found and a person can drive to several view points that don't require any walking so everybody can enjoy this park. By walking on some fairly steep sloping pathways I could get very close to the groups of sea lions on the rocky shoreline. There were good places to picnic that were somewhat sheltered from the constant... More

We did a family road trip on the Oregon Coast and although it was stunning scenery all the way, the family loved the views in Cape Arago State Park. We heard the sea lions before we could see them but we also saw whales, eagles, and various wildlife throughout. Would highly recommend you take your time enjoying this park!!!

The drive to Cape Arago is very beautiful with places to pull over and take in the beautiful seascapes. When we arrived at north Cape Arago, there was a little bit of a walk to reach the viewing platform, but the walk is manageable. The sea stacks and waves crashing everywhere were pretty awesome. We could hear a lot of... More

Cape Arago State Park is at the end of the Cape Arago Highway and it feels like it is, indeed, at the end of the world. The ocean vistas are stunning: you can see the light at Cape Blanco nearly 40 miles to the south and the headlands way to the north. The Simpson Reef Overlook is not to be... More
