AAA Editor Notes

Ecola State Park is on the coast 2 mi. n. off US 101 and is part of Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. The Corps of Discovery saw a beached whale south of what is now the state park, and the expedition party traded with the Tillamook Indians for blubber, meat and oil.</br>Sea lion and bird rookeries are on offshore rocks, and a small gang of elk roams freely. It also is a premier whale-watching location; a cliff trail offers scenic views. An 8-mile segment of the Oregon Coast Trail (also designated as the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail) runs through the park. There is access to two scenic beaches.</br>Pet friendly (call for restrictions/fees.). Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted.</br>
