Siuslaw National Forest Thors wrath © Damon Edwards
Witness the awe and power of this natural phenomenon, known to the locals as Thors Well. This massive hole embedded in the porous volcanic rock near the coast of central Oregon swells with sea water during high tides and drains below with immense speed. Formed over hundreds of years, this dangerous yet beautiful spectacle shows off the Pacific Oceans never-ending ability carve and shape the land.

Park Visitor Online Reviews
A breath of fresh air! - Every human should experience a little bit of nature. I truly believe it makes us all a little bit of a better person!
February Savannah National Wildlife Refuge (GA) by Stevie J
This is a nice place - I took the kids for a ride trying catch a glimpse of the gators. It was if the gators came to see us. There were some many and all over the place. It was about dark as we made it through the gates. I will go again
Favorite Place - We have a travel trailer and we love it here, lots of room between the sites and great positioning of the sites.
Park Ranger Sharon... - ...helped us out immensely - especially since it was our first time to the site and we had some campsite confusion. While both professional and kind, her assistance made our trip to Alta Lake excellent.
