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

It is a great little park. You get water and electric 50 amp for $22.00. It has slot of sites over 40 Ft. This is always a windy area but the trees cut a lot of the wind. The lighthouse and Port Orford make it worth the stop. Beware the dump station is closed !!! There will be no satellite... More

Beautiful views! Plenty of hiking trails and a nice beach to boot. It is one of the furthest points west in the lower 48 states. It can get windy out there so bring a windbreaker or jacket.
