Coffenbury Lake, Fort Stevens State Park, Oregon
Between Asoria and the beach, you'll find Coffenbury Lake if you take the right turn-off. It's never very crowded, and it's a great place to picnic, fish, or - my favorite - take a walk around the lake, mainly through rainforest vegetation. It's also a good starting point for the bike trails through Fort Stevens, because there's a good-sized parking lot behind where I'm standing. Click here and zoom in a couple of levels, and you'll see the long, thin lake and its relation to the river and the ocean. I've take this photo from the northern end of the lake.
