Entrance damaged

Road fissure at Ecola State Park.

Ecola State Park is closed until further notice as a result of damage to the park’s sole entrance road.

Recent heavy rains caused a sinkhole in the road and reactivated a longstanding landslide that triggered a fissure in the road. Oregon Parks and Recreation Department staff will evaluate the best way to repair the damage. It could take several weeks or longer to reopen the park, according to Park Manager Ben Cox.

Visitors may still access the park via the Tillamook Head Trail.
