Rooster Rock State Park is a state park located east of
Corbett, Oregon. One of the features of the park include Rooster Rock, a column of basalt, a natural obelisk, which stands near the Oregonside of the Columbia River Gorge, in the lee of Crown Point.
A large placard near the park's entrance asserts (or once did) that the
monolithwas noted by the explorers Lewis and Clarkin their journal, and that "the name is phallicin origin". Specifically, the column's original name was " CockRock". It is unclear whether the noble explorers themselves named it, or if that happened later. Either way, plain-speaking Oregonians still call it by that name.
A portion of the park is designated as a clothing-optional beach, with no apparent irony intended on the part of state park officials.
