This is a must see if you are in the Yachats area. The views are incredible especially the Cape Perpetua Overlook!

Even though it was a cloudy day, we enjoyed all that we saw at Cape Perpetua. Thor's Well, Spouting Horn even the Stone structure did not disappoint. Great tidepools and fun for all of the family to enjoy.

I planned my whole trip around seeing Thor's Well, Devil's Churn, Spouting Horn and Cook's Chasm (all in Cape Perpetua) and I wasn't disappointed. But be sure to go at/near high tide or you won't catch Thor's Well or the Spouting Horn in action. I...More

The various stacks, tidal pools and scenery makes a great day. We were out there during "high winds" and while it would have been more comfortable in a warm, sunny day, it was well worth the walk

We parked at the visitors center and walked the trail to the ocean and then explored all of the trails branching off from that. Thor's Well was amazing and we feared for the lives of the photographers who were standing at its edge! Fortunately, we...More

We visited at low tide, so we were able to see the tide pools. We did the short hike to the giant spruce, recommended by the nice employee in the visitor center. She was very helpful, and suggested several things we might want to do/see...More

Hi, Jodi. It really depends on the time you usually spend getting to feel the beauty of a place. I would say three hours as minimum time (if you are the type that does museums in less than an hour). In my opinion, even if... More

Yes, dogs are permitted in the campgrounds but as noted must be leashed. I took my dog on the short hike to the Oldest Spruce, on leash of course, as well as to the various trails by the viewpoints. There were folks taking... More
