Oswald West State ParkCannon Beach
Virtual field trip onlineThe campground at Oswald West is closed until further notice. We are studying the health of the trees in the campground -- many are very large and very old -- so we can develop options that balance the needs of the forest with your need for recreation. Please consider one of our other nearby campgrounds (Nehalem Bay, Fort Stevens and Cape Lookout). You can still view pictures, maps and park brochure on line!
