Storm Watching Oregon Coast

Autumn on the Coast

Our coastline is known for it’s dramatic beauty, and Fall and Winter is the perfect time to come down to the Southern Oregon Coast and experience it like never before!

Storm Watching at Shore Acres

Lauded as the “Best Storm Watching Location on the Coast”, Shore Acres State Park offers unparalled views of the mighty Pacific Ocean crashing into our coastline and creating waves that can reach up to 120 feet high.

Don’t be fooled by the name though, it doesn’t have to be storming to enjoy the waves, just pick a day when swells are predicted to be high. A storm watching hut is available on site to enjoy wave watching no matter what the weather. Storm watching at Shore Acres State Park is a photographer’s and ocean lover’s dream.
