The Seal Rock State Recreation Site is a small but beautiful strip of coast that offers a variety of fun and relaxing activities. Seal Rock is part of a fascinating habitat for seals, sea lions, birds and other marine life. Seals and sea lions in particular love this large basalt rock formation – the younger mammals play and frolic on and around the rocks, while the adults simply sunbathe. The area is excellent for tide pooling or clamming. Some of the best littleneck clams in the area are harvested from this area. There are plenty of fishing opportunities in the area and many shady picnic areas. The Seal Rock State Recreation Site is located 10 miles south of Newport, directly adjacent to Hwy. 101.
