Google maps show this route but I can't see any bus stops in Oswald West State Park in the street view. The website of the organization that runs this bus also doesn't list any stops between Manzanita and Midtown Cannon Beach:

So will the driver drop me off wherever I want? And where am I supposed to catch this bus when going from Oswald West State Park to Cannon Beach if there are no official stops?

If you download the pdf schedule at the link you provided, you will see three bits of 'rider info' that are applicable:

  • When flagging a bus along the route, choose a safe location where the bus driver can easily see you, can safely pull off road and where you are not at risk from other vehicles.

Ok, so you can flag the bus, you don't have to get it at an official stop.

  • Signal bus with a two-handed wave. Check the destination sign to ensure proper bus.

Be obvious when flagging it, a subtle gesture isn't going to attract attention.

  • Let driver know where you will be stopping, or when available, pull the stop cord near your seat prior to your requested stop.

Similarly, you can get off between 'official' stops, but let the driver know you are going to do so reasonably early.

As an addition, I will note that it is pretty clear from the full schedule that several of the buses don't go all the way to Cannon Beach - in each case the return trip starts 20 minutes after arrival in Manzanita, while Manzanita to Cannon Beach is 25 minutes one way on the schedule. So, only 4 of the 6 buses go beyond Manzanita to Cannon Beach (or can be caught between Cannon Beach and Manzanita going the other way).
