Beautiful and quite unique rock formation to view. Rock is huge and there is an interesting story to go along with face rock. Water access is available for sunset hotel patrons via a stairway across from the hotel.

This wayside state park is a must-see place. We’ve visited this location many times over 35 years and we never tire of the outstanding views. This is postcard Oregon scenery at its best. Ocean views north and south – long sandy beaches, haystack rocks, caves,...More

I've seen dogs and horses on the beach, and dogs at the viewpoint. I don't think there are any restrictions.
