Tolovana State Recreation Site is conveniently located on the ocean front of one of Oregon's most scenic beaches, Cannon Beach.  Situated at the south end of Cannon Beach, Tolovana offers a place to play, fly a kite, build a sand castle, picnic or take in a sunset.  Less than a mile away to the north you won't miss Haystack Rock, the icon of Cannon Beach.  Haystack Rock is a towering 235 foot basalt sea stack that is home to tidepool creatures and nesting seabirds, such as the Tufted Puffin.  Enjoy this protected area with care.  Cannon Beach is known for its miles of sandy shoreline and breathtaking scenery.  Don't miss the town's boutiques and local eateries, found in the nearby areas of Tolovana Park and Cannon Beach's midtown and downtown.  In addition to providing access to the ocean shore, Tolovana State Recreation Site has a playground located on the north side of the parking lot.
