“Empty Puch Bowl”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2007

On our trips along the Oregon Coast we have stopped a couple times along at the Devils Punchbowl. It was named because of a rock formation in a large bowl shape. When the tide is high it fills up and the water mixes around.

Unfortunately on our last trip the tide was out and there were only a few small waves at the bottom. The shore line is interesting and we got a few pictures, but the wheater was so wet and windy that we didn't stay very long - just enough to stretch our legs.

On a nice day there are benches and a grassy area where you could sit.

“Nice Place to Stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2006

At the Devil's Punchbowl State Park you can view this interesting hole in the sea cliffs, plus there is a good place to picnic if the weather allows. If the weather is lousy, there is a Mo's chowder house and a place to taste local wines next door. Restrooms too of course, and beautiful views of the coastline.
