I have been here a few times. I walked down to the ocean and walked a half mile or so and then hiked back up to the light house. I took a tour and saw the view from the top. The volunteers are great and the gift shop has many items to choose from.

This lighthouse is located in the state park but it is 6 mile drive to the end of the road where the lighthouse is located. You can drive right up to the parking lot at the lighthouse.

This is one of the nicest Oregon State Parks that you will find. Great camping and RV sites. Lots of trails to walk and a GREAT beach. This park is well managed and run by a group of dedicated volunteers. RV sites have lots of privacy and offer good protection from the wind should a storm come in. We always... More

While off the beaten path for most travelers, I'm lucky to go here because I have friends that live only two miles up on Cape Blanco Road. When the wind isn't blowing, it's a great place to walk or sit on the beach. The setting is lovely.

Pretty drive out to this lighthouse. I was there after the season so it was closed. The head is super windy but with great views.

Beautiful view from this spot, but not much to look at inside the lighthouse as people are not allowed up the stairs.

Cape Blanco Lighthouse is standing on a peninsula over looking the Pacific Ocean. Volunteers run a nice gift shop in an additional building on the property and there are tours provided of the lighthouse. Check days & times when they are open. You can view the outside of lighthouse 24/7.

The Cape Blanco lighthouse is another beautiful monument along the coast just south of Bandon and north of Port Orford. Taken the long drive through the Cape Blanco state park following signs to the lighthouse. The first parking sports are suitable for trailers and RVs but cars can proceed up the one lane road all the way to the lighthouse... More
