Whether you're staying at the campground or not, you can drive through the campground down a steep partially paved one-lane road to the beach. NOT for RV's! Parking just before the road ends. Although, if you're adventurous and have a high-clearance 4 x 4 vehicle you can drive on the beach at low tide. Walk NW toward the lighthouse for... More

I come here several times a year to walk on various trails and to enjoy the views. When friends come from out of town, Cape Blanco is always on our activities list. Beware it is quite windy here most days of the year, so bring a sweatshirt. This is the westernmost point of the continental US!

The tide pools just before the lighthouse are some of the best we've seen on the west Coast so far. If you like starfish, they have many different sizes and colors. It is very cold and windy though. At least for us today! Be prepared.

Oregon has a very good state campground system. This one is first come first served, and we found plenty of spots to choose from in the middle of July. It's well off 101 and has a quiet feel. The ocean roars beneath many of the sites. It's a quick hike to Cape Blanco lighthouse, and safe to hike there at... More

We stayed here for 3 days. Each day we walked the trails, visited the nearby beach, lighthouse, and scenic viewpoints, all within 3 miles!! The trail system runs along the backside of the campsites and along the ocean with great views of whale rock and Cape Blanco lighthouse. Showers are push button and free to campers (2$ for non campers)... More

It takes a little bit of a drive to get out to Cape Blanco, but it is worth it! So gorgeous, in all directions. This historical lighthouse, with its Fresnel lens, can be climbed, with close-up views of the inner workings of the light itself. The tour guides are knowledgeable and kind. Save time to visit the Visitors Center and... More

This state campground has a little more privacy than the usual Oregon State Park, but not much more. It's a place for families having fun at the beach, but not for folks wanting a more introspective experience.

Perfectly pretty location for a picnic. Dress warmly in layers, as it does get chilly. While your here, explore the lighthouse. It is worth the tour.

Nice, small park. Not far from the Cape Blanco lighthouse. Several miles from highway 101 but worth the drive out.
