It's free and it is amazing. Go for the pictures and the powerful view at the pier of watching the surf pound the jetty. Great walking trails and a beautiful beach.
we live in Astoria, so we take walks in Fort Stevens frequently. Our grandkids were visiting from San Diego this summer, and they loved it! The Peter Iredale is often quite visible and uncovered at extra low tides. Only negative is that at some times of the year, certain parts of the beach are open for driving. Be sure to... More
This is one of the best state parks I have ever been to. Great spaces, awesome showers, lots to do and see and close to Astoria which has good food and amenities. In the winter the area is very quite. You drive down on the beach for a few miles and see no one.
One can experience the only destination on mainland to be bombed by the Japanese during WW11. The bunkers and all the remains of the world wars.

This place is very special to me. When I was little my dad took the family there. He is gone now, but the memories of the good times we had, I will never forget. Every time I'm in Oregon, I always visit this wonderful place.

This the remains of the military base that closed down after WWII. It is mostly the concrete foundations of the battlements and various buildings of the camp. There is a museum that is very informative. You do have to pay for parking- 5.00 but the pass is good all day at any Oregon state park site that requires a pass.
