The day we visited the winds were so stiff it was hard to walk against it so our visit was limited. Despite the weather, the view, which was all we got to enjoy, was worth it. A great vantage point for viewing the haystack rock...More

We hiked the Clatsop Loop Trail and it was beautiful! Fairly easy hike, but the rain makes it muddy in a few areas. It was fun watching the surfers in the bay area after the hike. This one is not to be missed.

The drive through the park to get to the beach lookout is beautiful, curving through lush vegetation. Be careful and go slow, the roads are very narrow. The view at the end of the road is breathtaking!

like most of the Oregon Coast, Ecola is stunning. There were few people there in October so everything was quiet except the roar of the breaking waves. We only watched the waves and had lunch during our visit but plan a longer stay next yr.

The roar of the ocean was all we could hear because the few people at the park that gorgeous fall day were delightfully quiet too. Off season is the time to go. The drive up the park is a bit treacherous but be patient -...More

Loved the views and the short hike. I spent a few hours taking photos of the water, watching the surfers at Indian beach and taking a pleasant hike on the Clapsop trail. Loved it.

Personally, I don't know but the state park brochure mentions camping. I read in the park brochure there is primitive hiker's camp at the northern point of Ecola State Park near Bird Point.
