This is a first come first served small campground. It is quiet, secluded, clean and near the beach. The restrooms and showers were great. The beach below was wild and scenic and we felt like we were the only ones around. The campground host was very friendly and helpful. This was a great little find. We will revisit this place...

What a beautiful beach - just a short walk down an easy trail (bring your walking sticks if you're like me with a leg that doesn't work that well!). Lots of driftwood, rocks, and a protected inlet. Then we visited the lighthouse - it was being repaired but the guide answered everyone's questions. After leaving the lighthouse we went to... More

Cape Blanco State Park holds many treasures, but one must search. The campsites were secluded with water and electric along with hot showers and flush toilets. It did get chilly and wet, but we had a little heater so all was great. Now for the FOG....it does come in a hurry. But. Not all over the park. Get in your... More

This is as far west as you can go in the lower 48. The cape is included in the park, along with a lighthouse and an historic ranch house. The last part of the road is in poor condition and is steep and windy - perhaps not so good for large motorhomes.

We made the drive to Cape Blanco Lighthouse in the middle of the day, on a weekday, at the height of summer to find the road to the lighthouse road closed about a mile short of the actual lighthouse. What a bummer. The winds were so strong there was no way we were going to make that walk without getting... More

We keep coming back and learning something new. You can tour the lighthouse and Hughs House and search the tide pools right in the park. Not far away is a Coast Guard Museum where you can step back in time and then take a short hike on the whale-watching trail. We always also head south and take a walk through... More

Great State Park. In addition to the Lighthouse is an 1800s Historic House and many trails around the River, including a 1/2 mile one to the Coast.

The campground at Cape Blanco was simply amazing! Cape Blanco is the western-most land on the west-coast and thus is powerfully windy and can get quite cold. However, the campground is set above the beach under a canopy of towering spuce-trees that provide ample protection from the wind even at its most ferocious. In fact, it was a delight to... More

I consider my three star rating to be generous. This was the worst camping experience of my life. Let me start by saying the campground is beautiful. Lots of trees, hot water in the showers, campsites are pretty private, camp hosts are nice. But no amount of beautiful campground could make up for the misery that is the weather. We... More
