Scenic Beauty In Every Season at Oswald West State Park

Two prominent headlands to hike, a dense, temperate rainforest and a secluded sandy beach make Oswald West State Park one of the more spectacular parks in the Pacific Northwest. There are over 2,400 acres of parkland to explore along four miles of Oregon coastline. This breathtaking spot truly offers picturesque settings and memorable experiences at every turn.

Hikers at any skill level can experience exhilarating Cape Falcon and Neah-kah-nie Mountain on endless, well-maintained trails supported in part by funding generated by the Oregon Lottery. Soaring views are available from all angles of a picnic area overlooking a sheltered beach cove known to locals as “Shorty’s.”

The essence of Oswald West State Park is in the old growth Sitka Spruce, the rolling waves, a mild wind, surfers floating among the waves, a serene picnic, winding through the rainforest… all of it a place to wander, to share, to commune with nature, to express joy. Oswald West State Park is a place where memories are made.

More About State Parks

Meet Oswald West

As Oregon’s fourteenth governor, Oswald West was young, fiery and driven. He was determined to keep our state’s natural resources in public hands, including Oregon’s beaches. Governor West established Oregon’s beach highway law, proclaiming the entire Pacific coastline to the high tide line a public highway. His efforts preserved the scenery and public beach access for future generations.
