Ecola SP is a great spot for scenic photography, particularly of Haystack Rock. Remember to pack some food in the car as this is a great spot for picnicking and catching sunsets.

Oregon is full of state parks. Ecola is one of the easiest parks to capture amazing views. It's $5 to get in and it's well worth the money.

Many people come to the park to take photos of Haystack Rock on Canon Beach. There are hidden beaches all around the park with great views of the Pacific Ocean and rock formations jutting out which look great during sunset. There is also a large heard of Elk that tends to hang out around the park and create easy wildlife photo opportunities.

Be prepared for an easy hiking day, where the hardest part is deciding which place in the park to take amazing photos of.

Photograph a Different Vantage Point of Haystack Rock

If you stopped in the Cannon Beach area, you probably photographed Haystack Rock from the beach. Before you leave stop in Ecola State Park to get a whole new set of shots from a different vantage point. A lot of the trails are currently closed, but its still worth it.

On Top Of The World

The view is incredible!!!!The drive up to the park is beautiful through the woods.Theres a large parking lot and picnic tables at the top.I was disappointed that several of the trails were closed and I couldn't get down to Indian beach.We saw a herd of elk in a field next to the highway when we were leaving.

Must See

If you're in the area, you should make time for this park. One of the bests!
