seems legit!

I did not actually stay here, however i checked it out around sunset and it seemed like it work work great for a night! you could hear the waves crashing from the parking lot so it would make for a peaceful stay as well.

25 feet off fog lines

It’s 15 feet off the fog lines of the 101 HWY with no barrier. Reviews are absolutely right. Traffic dies down after dark and few other people car camping. Love the sound of the water.

Great spot on 101

Stayed here in late September, excellent view and decent connectivity. Cracked a window and fell asleep to the sound of Cooks Chasm!

Favorite Spot!!

We got here at 830ish pm and there were 3 vans and 1 other car there. I liked that because it helped me feel safe. Loved listening to the ocean and it was awesome to be right aboveThors Well! Plenty of spots for people to still park!

Nice but populated!

Super easy spot to camp for anyone going down the coast. Definitely fills up and it’s pretty noisy because it’s right off the highway but it has a gorgeous view! Felt super safe with phone service.

Nice spot overlooking Thor’s Well but noisy

My boyfriend and I are beginning car campers so we felt really safe being around other campers. However, it was very crowded and very nosy during the night/early morning since its right off the 101. I did see many pull outs on highway 101 but wasn’t sure if camping is allowed.

Beautiful

Parking lot directly next to road, multiple campers parked alongside each other on a Wednesday night. Very safe. No amenities and not perfectly flat, but the sunset and views make it worth it. Car traffic tapered off as night went on.

Convenient overnight parking

Great view of the ocean, though right next to the road. Not super packed but a couple people stayed the night

Great spot

Stayed here in early October. Only one other car there overnight. No bathroom or anything to use if you don’t have one in your rig. Mildly low traffic overnight on 101 plus barely able to hear over the roar of the ocean.

Right on 101, easy access, great views, no amenities

Free always gets you some stars. Easy access, great views, but not amenities- and no way to use nature if needed (struck signage to stay on trail (paved). No privacy. If you have a fully contained rig, great, but if you need a bathroom (or nature), not ideal.

It’s a parking lot

Overnight parking is perfectly legal at this spot. It’s a great way to see Thor’s Well change throughout the day. You can’t really deploy a full campsite here but it is very convenient. Most of the Oregon coast is forestry land and you can overnight park as long as there are no signs marking otherwise. Thanks, Oregon!
