General Advisory
We currently do not allow kiddie pools in the Park due to the following: the need to conserve water as ordered by Governor Kate Brown’s Executive Order 15-09 and due to resource protection as the camp sites get pretty torn up with these pools. There is also a potential liability issue if pool left unattended

Ecola State Park
05/16/2018
General Advisory
Ecola Point to Indian Beach Trail CLOSED. This popular hike usually connects Ecola Point and Indian Beach day use areas. Excessive precipitation from the 2016-17 winter caused a large landslide that took out a critical section of trail, requiring a significant re-route. It is unknown at this time when that work will be completed. In the meantime, PLEASE do not attempt this trail by creating your own detour. Besides being potentially dangerous, user-created trails can cause serious damage to some of Oregon's most precious natural resources. Thank you for your consideration.
