Boiler Bay State Scenic Viewpoint is a state park in the U.S. state of Oregon, administered by the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department.

Boiler Bay Viewpoint overlooks the small Boiler Bay. Boiler Bay was named after the vessel J. Marhoffer was run aground in the small bay—then known as Brigg's Landing—on May 18, 1910 after a fire spread throughout the engine room. Soon after, the burning 175-foot schooner's fuel tanks exploded. Witnesses claim debris was launched nearly a half mile to a mile inland. The remains of the vessel were left in the bay, including her engine boiler.[1] Today, the boiler can still be seen at extreme low tides.[2]
