THREE CAPES LOOP RV TRIP
Cannon Beach

Three Capes Loop RV Trip : Newport ~ Depoe Bay ~ Lincoln City ~ Pacific City ~ Sand Lake ~ Netarts ~ Tillamook ~ Manzanita ~ Cannon Beach ~ Seaside

Cannon Beach is a very popular beach town, especially with residents of Portland. The main feature of the beach at Cannon Beach is called Haystack Rock, and it has been featured in several movies, including "Goonies". The town is built up with shops and restaurants near the beach, and that is a fun area to walk around and check out.

Here are some highlights of Cannon Beach, followed by pictures:

Beach / Haystack Rock - Big beach, tide pools near Haystack Rock. See pictures below.

RV Camping is available near downtown at Cannon Beach RV Resort or on the north side of town at Sea Ranch Resort.

Ecola State Park - Located just north of Cannon Beach. Hiking, beach access, tide pools, reservable picnic shelter, views of Tillamook Rock Lighthouse. Day use fee charged. (There is one road to/from Ecola State Park via Cannon Beach, so this is a spur trip.) See pictures below.

Heading north from Cannon Beach on Hwy 101 you can either take a spur trip and continue on the 101 to Seaside. Otherwise, just north of Cannon Beach you will take State Road 26 East toward Portland, then take Hwy 217 South through Beaverton before joining up with I-5 South, which takes you to RV's To Go in Wilsonville.

road to Ecola State Park north of Cannon Beach
The tricky, narrow road to Ecola State Park. There were some low hanging branches near the edge of the road. We had to pause a few times to let cars by, but nothing ever brushed the RV roof. The trip was worth it and we got a good view of the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse.
