Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge ~ A Favorite Oregon Geotourism Site


Red Chair Travels at Haystack RockFrom nearly every viewpoint on the Oregon coast, colossal rocks can be seen jutting out of the Pacific Ocean creating postcard images.  Red Chair Travels watched the sunset near Haystack Rock, an iconic monolith, a short scenic drive from Sandlake Country Inn where its been staying this past week. 
Each of these rocks is protected as part of Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge includes 1,853 small islands, rocks, and reefs plus two headlands, totaling 371 acres spanning 320 miles of Oregon's coastline from the Oregon–California border to Tillamook Head.  

All of the island acreage is designated National Wilderness, with the exception of 1-acre Tillamook Rock and Lighthouse, so public access is restricted but there are spectacular viewing opportunities at numerous locations along the coast.
