Historical shipwreck
Jun 2021
There isn't a lot to see here; there's an outline of the metal ship frame sticking up from the sand, as well as a few other associated metal bits. It is interesting to look at the remainder of the ship, and to learn a little about the history of the wreck. At low tide you can walk around next to/inside the frame; at high tide it's surrounded by water. This was a quick stop for us while we were in Fort Sevens State Park but was worth a few minutes to check out the wreck.

Remarkable site
May 2021
While this attraction was not exactly what we expected, we were glad we made the time to stop and see it. The history of the wreck isn't glamorous by Hollywood standards, but super interesting nonetheless, and is remarkable because no lives were lost. The dunes and beach are nice, and there are bathroom facilities near the parking lot. Worth a stop.

A Step Back in Maritime History
Oct 2020
I agree with other reviewers. Sure, technically it is just a hunk of metal in the sand. But, it's so much more. Still, if you're expecting gift shops and amusement rides and taco stands, you will be disappointed. It is very simple -- the remains of a ship wrecked on the shore from long ago. Reading the history of the ship while you're there will help you appreciate it more. It is on a beautiful beach, if you choose to hike down the sands, which aren't too bad. I could have sat there and just listened to the ocean for hours. It wasn't over-crowded. So a nice stop along your travels to appreciate a bit of maritime history and enjoy the magnificent sea on a pretty beach. There is no fee to get in.

A hunk of metal in the sand
Sep 2020
This site is totally overrated. Honestly, it is just a hunk of metal in the sand. Luckily it was free to view.
The beach that this site is on is nice though.

Awesome beach activity! Highly recommend!
Sep 2020 • Business
Very interesting remnants of a British Victorian era, four-masted sailing vessel located on a beautiful beach with patches of sea grass.

We visited on a gorgeous day full of blue skies where the wind was blowing the loose, lighter colored sand and making it fly across the darker wet sand for a very ethereal aesthetic! Made the wreck that much more fun to climb around and shoot pics of!

Timed it perfectly for low tide and even got to see one of the masts! Gave me a great playground to practice with my new camera! And also learn some interesting history - built in the late 1800s, it ran ashore in 1906 during one of those legendary Oregon coast storms, but everyone survived! The captain’s last toast to his ship was “May God bless you, and may your bones bleach in the sands." Which is exactly what it’s doing haha! Highly recommend! So fun and very Gram worthy!

Beautiful beach
Jul 2020 • Couples
It's a little of a climb over & down the sand dunes but then just a short walk to the shipwreck. If you prefer, there is an overlook from the parking lot. The beach is wild and beautiful. When we were there, we had it practically to ourselves. This site is part of Fort Stevens State Park which has camping, trails for walking/cycling, historic areas, a disc golf course and a lake to swim in. The weather can be quite nasty so come prepared. We lucked out with calm winds and sunshine.

Worth a visit!
Jul 2020
This is a gorgeous beach, with or without the ship wreck. Lots of sand dollars, a few jellyfish, and plenty of sand in which to play.

I can remember seeing my first shipwreck, on Cape Hatteras, almost 60 years ago. It invoked imagined adventures, danger and excitement. The Peter Iredale did the same for me, and we saw a young boy having the same sort of experience on this visit.

Well worth the time to get to the site and explore if you are adventurous at heart.

Use your imagination
Sep 2019
There is enough left of the ship here that you could use your imagination to think what it might have looked like in years past when more was visible. It is still pretty neat to get up close and personal and look at what's left. And, it's another great beach with waves, pretty sky, clouds, and the vast ocean ! ENJOY
