ABOUT SEAL ROCK
Seal Rock is a small Lincoln County community along Highway 101, just south of Newport.
These “Seal rocks” form a ledge of partially submerged rocks in the Pacific Ocean surfline. They extend parallel to the coast for about two and a half miles at a distance of a half mile from the beach. The highest rock rises about 20 feet out of the water. There is one large rock at the shoreline and many smaller ones. The place was called Seal Illahe, Chinook for seal home or seal place. Seal Rock’s first post office was established April 25, 1890, with postmaster J. W. Brasfield running things. Seal Rock was at one time a popular resort destination.
Bottom Fishing, muscle harvesting and clamming are very productive here at Seal Rock.
There are antique shops, woodcarvers’ galleries and other specialty shops.
Visitors enjoy beachcombing, agate hunting, surfcasting, rock fishing and observing sea life in the tidepools offshore. There are several turnouts along the highway and at Seal Rock State Park.
