"ECOLA STATE PARK - THE VIEW AND MORE" Ecola State Park by mtncorg

Ecola State Park Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 93 photos

There are many jewels to the Oregon State Park system along the Coast and lying within the first tier would definitely have to be Ecola State Park. The world-class view from the Ecola Viewpoint is reason enough. This view is emblematic for the entire 360 mile coastline, so perfect it is. Even with the growth of nearby Cannon Beach, the view remains sublime - mountains, beaches, sea stacks, surf, ocean. Most visitors come merely for the 'view', paying their $3 day fee, park, click and leave. The park offers much more to those who do hang around for awhile ... and there is a fair number who do.

Ecola is a Chinook Indian word meaning 'whale', which you can also observe from the heights of Ecola Park at times when the whales migration is underway.

    Hi Mark, this looks like a great part of the Oregon coast, worth a lot more than just park, click and leave. -- Thanks for your nice holiday wishes. Hope you are getting off to a great start in the New Year 2009! -- Don

    Hmm, Mark we must have just missed each other here. I was at Ecola on July 10th. You have done a great job with this page. With our combined efforts maybe others will visit now. :)
