Witness the awe and power of this natural phenomenon, known to the locals as Thors Well. This massive hole embedded in the porous volcanic rock near the coast of central Oregon swells with sea water during high tides and drains below with immense speed. Formed over hundreds of years, this dangerous yet beautiful spectacle shows off the Pacific Oceans never-ending ability carve and shape the land.

Bring ear plugs; watch the sun sets. - Sited between I-84 and the Columbia River, we were pleasantly surprised at how little freeway noise there is after dark. Bring ear plugs if you do not like to hear the occasional train. You easily see barges and train traffic on both sides of gorge. Wonderful sunsets on the volcanic cliffs in Washington. Most sites are shady, and the bathrooms are immaculate.
Love this park! - This is on of my favorite camping spots in Oregon and the best State Park. So close to the ocean and the hiking trails are amazing! I love that I cant be bothered by my phone due to the poor cell reception. Anyone who complains about the lack of satellite reception due to the huge trees needs to move to eastern oregon. This place is the best!!
Breathtaking Sunrise... - My girlfriend and I drove cross country our first campsite was farewell bend state park.It was clean comfy and we got our campfire going just fine.Beautiful surroundings this is a place i`ll always remember...
Amazing Hiking - I live close to Finley and it is so nice to be able to go here for either a quick walk or a hike depending on your mood. My favorites are the Woodpecker Loop and the hike by the lake. Another bonus is that there is so much variety in the different trails from marshy areas to forest and fields.
Trains, trains, trains - The campground itself is nice, but it borders the train tracks, and at least 8 trains went by during the night that we stayed, and I only got about 5 hours of sleep. It may look deceiving because during the day we were there only 2 trains went by, but I guess train traffic picks up significantly at night.
The park is excellent. - Myself,Husband and friends have been going fishing and relaxing in this park for 20 years.Lots of great inprovments . It is perfect. Just got back from 2 weeks there, and weather was bad.Strong winds and cold. Not the best for fishing. We will be there again in the fall for beach fishing. So fun.
Thanks for having a great place. It is a Gods creation for sure.
Good Location for US - Its a great location for us we go because of the area around it. We love to fish and hike. But the campsites are kind of small and uneven ground. We only camp there if one of the 2 sites are available. otherwise we go elsewhere. Playground is nice, also the showers are nice and warm. The stars are very beautiful in the gorge at night.
