It's a lovely little beach, and we spent a very long time just listening to the waves and walking the sandy beach.

Lone Ranch is one of our favorites...close to town (Brookings), tables with good views of the waves, especially good rock and driftwood finds, generally soft sand for barefoot strolls, and "tadah"...restrooms!

Beautiful, as all of Oregon Coast is. Unless you are in very good shape, it is dangerous getting down to the beach. So many logs, large driftwood block access. Also, rocks are an obstacle to maneuver over.

Such a beautiful beach and great for walking your dog. On a recent visit, all but one, had a dog or two in tow. Try low tide and fishing/rain boots are certainly helpful for crossing the creek inlets. Great views in all directions. Bring your camera/phone and enjoy.

The wife and I visited at dusk and really enjoyed the views and the wildlife that we were able to find in the tide pools. Ad the sun was going down I has the ability to take some of the best pictures of our entire trip, made the coworkers envious.

A beautiful and expansive beach. Past the tall rocks at the south end of the beach there is another section of coastline that is more rocky and has more driftwood piled up. If you keep walking past the tall rocks and look towards another rock formation out in the ocean to the right you can see white spots. Those are... More

Best time to visit Lone Ranch is an hour before low tide. Walk all the way to the end past a couple of sea stacks. You will be greeted with great tide pools with sea anemones and star fish, hermit crabs and other interesting sea life. Seals can often be seen just off shore. The thing is if it is... More
