Designated as the first National Wildlife Refuge west of the Mississippi River, Three Arch Rocks Refuge lies a half mile offshore of Oceanside, Oregon.
One of the Oregon coast's best-known landmarks, the refuge consists of three large and six smaller rocks totaling 15 acres. The refuge is one of the smallest designated Wilderness Areas in the country.
The Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge is hope to more than 100,000 nesting common murre, provides habitat for Oregon's largest breeding colony of tufted puffins, and is the only pupping site on the north Oregon coast for the federally threatened Steller sea lion.
