This park is about a mile south of the Inn at Cape Kiwanda where we stayed. So stopped here to take a look the morning we left. There were some nice big sand dunes, kind of deserted so if you want a quiet place to walk around and look at the beach this would be worth a stop.

Beach was great, rode horses along ocean side and through a trail. Took the dogs to the ocean for the first time in their lives. My blood hound loved it.

Had a wonderful day with the family. Climbed the sand hill and played in the tide pools. Found crabs, fish and starfish and played in the surf

I like to take the trail near restroom,up over sand,and walk down to beach, its never crowded, I usually walk from 9am to11am or so And find it very relaxing. Also the history on Bob Straub is very interesting

Plenty of parking plus restrooms. Picnic tables. Easy access to the beach. A nice stretch of sand. You can walk really far either direction.

Beautiful sandy beach with great views! We were shocked about how few people were there both times we went there, we practically had the place to ourselves! Parking is super close to beach access as well.
