There are simple walks to the Octipus Tree or steep trails to the beach below. There is something for everyone. Wear good all weather gear and hiking boots. As always on the Oregon Coast wear layers for all weather.

Nice beach. Good place to picnic. There is a public restroom which aren't that common to find. Not as crowded as some of the other beaches around.

We went immediately to the beach. There were no sand, only pebbles. It didn't stop us. We kept on walking. There were lots of trees, truly beautiful! A bit further we had sand, very comfortable sand. The ocean was wild. Still, people were swimming in...More

There were three trails and we only did "Cape Trail," which is described as easy to moderate difficulty. It starts off with a wide, flat path but quickly turns into a muddy, tree root filled excursion. This is one for boots! Without them, many of...More

We have camped here many times n the past. Lovely grounds, many campsites are fairly secluded. Fairly quiet at nights (after 10PM). Short walk to a beautiful beach. Dog Friendly. Beautiful sunsets - get to the beach early, as most of the campers are there!...More

We went hiking I would call the trail we took challenging as opposed to how it was described in our travel magazine. Some parts of the trail were pretty steep, we had to climb through tree roots in several places and there were lots of...More

This is a beautiful park about 15 minutes outside Tillamook in case of needed supplies or visiting Tillamook cheese factory. Park is very well kept per Oregon State Park standards. Miles of beach to explore. Fishing and shellfish harvesting galore. Being an older park campsites...More

We have been camping at Cape Lookout twice. We like it hear because you can setup in a wooded area and have just a short walk to the beach. The beach is really pretty. We can walk up and down the beach or sit and...More

We hiked here once and plan to go back again. I would call the trail we took "moderately challenging". It was fairly steep in places, required climbing over a large tree in one area, and had several muddy areas that were challenging to get around....More

This time of the year it is best to have reservations. It fills up pretty fast.

I would say the site is too short, that size is the total vehicle length of 50'. I've seen 60' rigs there, but that is about it. Measure your total length and give the site a call, they can help.
