“a worthwhile stop”
Review of Battle Rock Park

Reviewed 5 April 2017

This small beach and impressive set of sea stacks is worth a stop on your way along the coast. It's not as dramatic or expansive as stops further south, but has some historic interest as the spot where heavily armed American traders/settlers clashed with the Native Americans in what might be called the battle but was more like a massacre, after which the Americans withdrew. Walking to your left along the beach you can get very close to some of the large sea stacks and examine the variety of rocks uncovered by the waves as part of the mélange picked up by the moving North American continent.

Absolutely one of my all-time favorite beaches in the world! Easy walking, mesmerizing place to gaze out at the ocean, gather rocks, watch whales feeding and spouting, have a picnic, and get your needed day at the beach.

We spent an evening here and the beach is beautiful. Sun set views are amazing.
Convenient to just stop by and spend sometime since the beach is right across the road from the freeway.

Stopped here during our trip along the 101. Yes, there are many places to stop and tons of great views. Battle Rock sets itself apart from many others by its easy access, parking and walking trails.

This spot has paved pull in parking facing the ocean, a stone wall to sit on, paved walking trails winding through a sloping lawn down to the beach. To the south Humbug Mt. rises 1800 feet straight out of the ocean. There's a manned visitor center to answer any questions that you might have and they have a huge selection of information and maps for anywhere you might want to visit up and down the coast and of course they have restrooms as well. This is also very good spot to watch gray whales feed and if your lucky you might see an orca. The beach is a good spot to find driftwood and seashells and the lawn is perfect for a picnic. One of the best stopping spots on the entire coast.
