The Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor along the southern Oregon coast is a magnificent 12-mile stretch of coastal parklands featuring hiking trails, beaches, historic sites and many scenic overlooks. The House Rock viewpoint is a very nice spot to look up the coast and is a great place for a quick stop if there is not a lot of time. There is access to the Oregon Coast Trail in both directions from this spot. The stairway leading to the overlook may be an impediment for people with disabilities.

Featured at this overlook is a memorial plaque for Samuel Boardman, for whom this state park is named. He was the first Superintendent of the Oregon State Park system. He held his post for 31 years and was personally responsible for building the state park system into one of the most notable in the country. He aggressively acquired land and transformed the state park system into a force for preservation of some of the most beautiful places in Oregon.
