It's a quick stop to take a break from the road and stretch your legs. Maybe have a picnic at the tables. It's just feet from hwy 101. Pretty view, interesting info, public restrooms, easy walk to beach. Worth the stop

Great beach. Good spot for a swim or a picnic. Interesting bit of history also. Worth a stop while driving down the Oregon Coast.
