It take about 1 hour each way to hike from the Ecola state park parking lot to the lighthouse viewpoint. Along the way are several viewpoints. Need to bring your own water. Bring some binoculars for possible whale sighting.

Great views of Cannon Beach and Tillamook light house. The road to Indian beach was backed up almost to the entrance. So, we didn't even make it there. The view from Ecola Point area was worth it alone. A must if you're in Cannon Beach.

The road is narrow but in pretty good shape to get up to the Park. Great view, picnic tables, bathrooms were clean. Lots of trails lead in and around the parking area, and there is another area called Indian Point (I think). Another parking area...More

We took the drive to the park in the evening and we're lucky enough to spot a cow Roosevelt elk in the timber. Bring a jacket...it is chilly! Very cool drive and park.

I was there last week & the only "damage" I saw was the road (101) was closed because of a small landslide. It was opened within the next day. I couldn't even tell where it happened. Other than that I saw no damage. It's a... More

Personally, I don't know but the state park brochure mentions camping. I read in the park brochure there is primitive hiker's camp at the northern point of Ecola State Park near Bird Point.
