My fiancé is from the area and my family is as well so we are pretty in love with everything Port Orford has to offer. We have decided that Cape Blanco is where we will be getting married this coming October! The easy access, beautiful views, lush forest and awesome campground makes it ideal for anyone looking for a long... More

Our family has returned to Cape Blanco State Park many times over the last 20+ years. We always stay in one of the rustic cabins. The cabins have a "sort of" view. Because of the high wind rain storms that they sometimes have there the campground had to put translucent corrugated fiberglass panels over the west side of each of... More

Every fall I take a journey up the Oregon coast and every time the Cape keeps pulling me back in. The campground is situated on a high bluff above the sea in a mossy full forest. Hot showers, yes, great trails, a lighthouse jutting out in the sea, nearby rivers full of salmon, what more? We always manage to spot... More

The park is tucked in the trees on a bluff. Although you cannot see the ocean or the lighthouse from your campsite, it's a easy drive to the lighthouse or a serious hike down to the beach.

Cape Blanca State Park is a popular park with breathtaking views on a s clear sunny day (which we had). We enjoyed visiting the lighthouse and the Hughes Historic Home areas.

We saw a sign for the lighthouse and decided to detour for it and we're so glad we did! It was great to go up into the LIGHT and take in the view and hear the history. Western most point in Oregon that you can drive to.

LOVED the beach! The beautiful colored stones on the beach are amazing and the driftwood scattered all over the back of the beach was neat. It's not a crowded beach either because it's far away from major cities. Drive out and take a walk. It's very picturesque too. The rock structures are everything you imagine when you think of the...

Tlhe lighthouse is located on the furthest western most point of the contiguous United States. The Lighthouse is intriguing and the Park has a great campground. You can even bring in horses for trail riding. Lots of hiking paths. If you walk down to the ocean on the south side and turn toward the lighthouse, you may find shell fossils... More

Off the highway and off the charts windy! Gusts up 40 mph the day we visited. Thick fog was rolling in and we could barely view the beach, and definitely not the lighthouse. Since it was Tuesday, the road to the light house was closed, so we hiked the half mile. Was rather disappointed at what we found...access beyond the... More
