When we were kids our parents took us to Oregon every summer. Does anyone remember a place called Ship Wreck? They restored an old ship and made it into a gift shop. We got the best salt water taffy there!!!

Dilapidated and unsafe.... I should have known better, but we were bored... save your 7 bucks you can buy some drinks at the liquor store across the street much cheaper than in Oregon...

The Ship Ashore Museum is closed, it appears permanently. Fond memories as a kid from this attraction and it had a great history, looks cool sitting up on land.

The hotel is in horrible condition now. We used to stay there, but the carpets were so dirty and the general lack of repairs has stopped our visits. It is a crying shame as the location is wonderful.

The Ship Ashore property has been disintegrating for years. The museum shows the signs of neglect, and is considered by many nearby residents as an eyesore. Bad management.

Love the location at the mouth of the Smith River and the Pacific. Hotel is old, but adequate. Restaurant is good, food has been excellent. Visit at least every 6 months and sometimes more.

Good to stop and see once in your life time. It has some interesting facts in the little museum area. A lot of the gift items look to have been around a long time. Not something I would drive 40 or 50 miles to see....More
