Bob Straub State Park is tucked away a few miles off Highway 101 so does not get nearly the number of visitors as some other SPs. There are restrooms but not much else here.

We visited on a pleasant fall afternoon and parked in the paved parking lot. To get to the beach, we climbed up over the small dunes. The beach is wide, flat and goes seemingly "forever" in each direction! You have a great view of "the other" Haystack Rock - this one is less well known than the one of the same name in Cannon Beach but is just as large if not a bit bigger.

This is one of the few SPs that allow horses, and we saw a couple of local riders heading out for a nice beach ride.

This park is a great place to visit the beach and enjoy the solitude.

This park is one of our favorite places to go on the coast. Even on a holiday weekend you can find spots to be isolated and alone. The beach is wide and you can walk for a long long time in either direction. Few people, good wind for kites. If you want to relax, sit back and read while listening to the waves, climb into the dunes. There are many clearings off the paths where you can pull out a blanket or chair and never be bothered. The rustling of the dune grass and the distant sound of the ocean can be mesmerizing. Great views up and down the beach and out across the ocean. If you are not in a rush, this is a great place to spend a relaxing time.
