Paradise Point State Recreation Site with the Garrison Beach named after the adjacent Garrison Lake, is a secluded shoreline near Port Orford. This is a scenic location to enjoy a quiet stroll on the beach, collect rocks and sea shells, or view the storms with distant sea stacks in the background.

Garrison Beach is a very productive place for rockhounding and beachcombing, especially after big storms. Agates are plentiful here, but you can also find a variety of other ocean treasures for your collection.

You can see the ocean very well right from the parking lot and this can be a fantastic place to enjoy the winter storms. Wildlife watching is great here too. You can see whales and a variety of sea birds including whimbrels.

The beach can be rugged in some places and tends to receive hard shore breaks, so be very careful during the stormy weather, especially near the steep parts of the beach.

The Paradise Point State Recreation Site parking is gravel with a short trail down to the beach. You can also access it on your vehicle through the rugged road, but you will need a 4WD vehicle, otherwise, your car might get stuck.
