Seal Rock

Taste of Oregon RV Trip : Newport ~ Seal Rock ~ Florence ~ Winchester Bay ~ Coos Bay ~ Charleston ~ Bandon ~ Port Orford ~ Gold Beach ~ Brookings ~ Crescent City, CA ~ Grants Pass ~ Crater Lake ~ Bend ~ Silver Falls SP

Seal Rock is a nice stop on the Oregon Coast as you're heading south on the 101, especially if you like scenic areas and wildlife viewing.

Ona Beach State Park - North of Seal Rock, this park offers beach access, kayak tours, a boat ramp and more.

Seal Rock State Recreation Site - Highly recommended! There is a paved trail to picnic areas and a beach overlook, then a hiking trail down to the great big beach. You'll find picnic areas, an inter-tidal zone, seals on the rocks, birds galore, and more. See pictures below.

The rocks are encrusted with creatures that are withdrawn into a protective shell until the

birds on the rocks at Seal Rock
They are hard to see, but there are lots of birds on the rock. Guess why the rock is all whitish?
