Seal Rock State Recreation Site
Four miles north of Waldport, Seal Rock attracts beachcombers and agate-hunters, as well as folks who come to explore the tide pools and observe the seals on offshore rocks. The park’s name derives from a seal-shaped rock in the cluster of interesting formations in the tidewater. The picnic area is set in a shady area behind the sandy beach.
During Christmas and spring breaks, the volunteers of Whale Watching Spoken Here are on hand to help visitors spot passing grays 10 a.m.–1 p.m. The park is open for day use only; call 800/551-6949 for information.
