Explore Ecola State Park

Details

Added by George Bruce Wilson

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.

Awesome Time

Cool place to go when exploring the northern Oregon coast. Unfortunately when I went much of the park was closed due to storm damage.

Magical place

This area has everything you want from the Oregon coast: dense, lush forests, waterfalls, little pristine coves, views over looking the rocky coast line, and fresh air!
