While in Newport, I stopped by to see what the hype was all about. Being on vacay mode, of course is didn’t wake up early enough to arrive during low tide. By the time I arrived, the water was already slowly coming in making it...More

This area offers great views north, west and south. Besides the punch bowl, the whales were active as the tide came in. Surfers were also enjoying the tides to the south, but they were very gentle so not a ton of activity. If you are...More

This is a cool area. Not only is the Punch bowl unique, but watching whales frolicking in the water around it, made for a beautiful visit.

People complaining that nothing to see at low tide from the top aren't wrong. But if you get there in time to get inside, DO IT! Access the beach on the north side by driving down C Ave to the far parking lot on the...More

One of the most scenic portions of the Oregon coast. Huge rock outcroppings which the waves slam in to and create phenomal photos. The punch bowl is an opening in a large rock which as waves come in spray high into the air . Acess...More

If you can get there at high tide...GREAT!!! But even if you can't, it's beautiful to see what nature can do! And we saw WHALES! Gray whales that winter off the Oregon coast!

People were lined up for blocks trying to get into this park. There was a tow-truck circling so I presume the locals are serious about their "no parking" signs. We gave up trying to find a parking spot.

We enjoyed visiting this place and look forward to coming back one day. The Devils Punchbowl is a must see at least once. Parking area is good with easy access. Scenic trails marked from easy to moderate are great and should not be missed. If...More

There were lots of dogs there so I’m going to go with yes on that. Friendly tip - get the app for tide charts or get a tide chart from a ranger station. You can walk into the Punchbowl at low tide and then view it from above... More

Make sure you put it in your GPS as Devil's Punchbowl State Natural Area. Watch for the sign. It looks like a regular side street but keep going. It is at the end of the street. You will pass the picnic area, restrooms... More
