We pulled in thinking we'd find a piece of driftwood but unless you wanted tree-like size pieces we were disappointed! Park was very nice - bathrooms and picnic tables - we did stop north of here along 101 and found places to pick up smaller...More

There are so many amazing beaches in the Oregon Coast and this beach is nice for families to hang out but the rugged beauty is not here. Great for families but if you are on a road trip, you can skip this one.

Love this beach as it is easy walking even for seniors. Come here often. We have guests from all over and always find our way to this one as it has good parking and an easy access to the beach.

This is about the third time we have visited this beach. Relatively easy access to the beach but I would not say the path to the beach is handicap accessible. The beach must be very self cleaning as there never seems to the usual ocean...More

Huge parking with bathrooms. The short winding path down to the beach is easy to trek. Once down on the sand, the shore is long and expansive. You can sit and take in the views, explore the shoreline or go for a long walk or...More

A lot of the state recreation sites are day use areas. Driftwood has a large parking lot with restrooms. The beach itself is wide open. You can walk a long ways up and down the beach. The waves here seem to be larger than beaches...More
