Oswald West State Park and Vicinity

This sprawling Oregon state park provides visitors with the chance to easily access beaches, coastal forests, bays, streams and rivers. The pinnacle of the park (we’re not kidding – it really is a pinnacle!) is the towering Neahkahnie Mountain, the tallest feature on the Oregon Coast. Aside from the amazing views you can catch along Highway 101 as it snakes its way up the side of the mountain, Oswald West State Park also provides great place for picnics, hiking, fishing, wildlife spotting or just playing in the surf.
