Cape Arago State Park

Viewpoint for Marine Mammals

Search Visit Oregon
Situated at the end of the Cape Arago Highway, this state park features two trails. The south trail leads to a sandy beach and tidepools full of a variety of sea life. The north trail lets visitors view the off-shore colonies of seals and sea lions at Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge. The north trail is closed March through June to protect seal pups.

On clear days, you can see south to Bandon and beyond from the north end of the parking area. In a winter storm, this is the place to find some of the highest winds on the coast.

The park has picnic tables and a gazebo shelter, but no camping facilities.
