This park is no longer in existence. The State of Oregon bought it and tore it completely out, making it a beach-access day-use facility only. The Motel is still there and operating, but is owned separately by a private owner and is now a separate property from what used to be the RV park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Unfortunately, this campground has been taken over by the State of Oregon. It will be a day use area only: no campsites available. We were hoping to go and camp, now it will be impossible. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Located anyplace else this park would get a poor rating but the location is outstanding. We are there now, parked in a spot just 50 yards from the surf on a beautiful flat sandy beach. It is spectacular. The grounds and facilities are clean. On the down side the park is suffering through a transition that has diminished its appeal to those seeking full services. The owners are trying to sell it but possibly because of cash flow problems have closed attractions like the trout pond and deferred some maintenance. Biggest problem: the sewer system is temporarily (?) unusable because it does not meet state environmental requirements. I fear the property is ripe for redevelopment and may not exist as an RV park much longer. Enjoy it while you can but come with empty holding tanks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was at one time a fantastic family park. About the only part still in use is the strip on the ocean front, which is the only redeeming feature. (Only about 40 or so sites.) We were originally lured here by their website, which touts the wonderful amenities such as a trout pond, general store, game room, archery range, etc. When we arrived we found a ghost town. The store & game room have been closed for at least two years. All that's left of the trout pond is a bog. Many of the washers and dryers in the laundry room are broken. The dump station is closed and there are no functional sewer hookups available. The shower building is falling apart. Yet, when you look at the current website, you are led to believe that all these wonderful amenities await you. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I disagree with the above review, we really enjoyed this park. It's a rarity to go to a park where they let you select your own site. True the sites are all side by side, but you are rewarded by a fabulous oceanfront view. You can sit in your RV our out under your awning and watch and listen to the crashing ocean waves. If you love the beach and beachcombing, or flying a kite, you'll love this park. The roads are gravel but easy to get around. We parked on the opposite side near the park host, a nice and grassy area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Oceanfront sites have no sewer, which are the majority of the sites in the park. Sites are VERY close together with absolutely nothing in between them. Showers are pay, bathrooms are the bare necessity with no soap. Modem hookup is a pay phone data port by the road that needs an 800 number to work. They accept cash or check only, but want a credit card to rent a movie (they have no cable or antenna stations), yet another camper who was there for a week said she paid her spot with a credit card?? We checked in at 11:15am and were told we could have the site but could not connect the utilities until 12 noon--penny pinching? Great oceanfront, but not resort camping. Wind blows constantly and VERY dusty and dirty park. Advertises Visa/Mastercard, reservations accepted & shuttle to town of which none are available! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great little park that can handle big rigs. The owner greeted us while we were still in our truck (pulling a 5th wheel) and personally escorted us to our pull through site (nicely shaded). We went exploring after registering and returned to find a welcome basket on our doorstep filled with goodies and information of things to do in the area (we had already gotten recommendations from the owner that turned out to be spot on - we had a great afternoon exploring!!) The sites are not overly wide but sufficient and in our case plenty long. The utilities are where they should be and worked perfectly. The restroom is small, not modern, but fully adequate and very CLEAN! Even thought the lot is next to 101, we found it to be very quite and peaceful at night-no trouble sleeping. The is not the place to go if you are looking for pools, saunas, playgrounds and the like. It is just a great little place to enjoy your stay in the area. Note - I do not remember the nightly rate exactly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If I could have given this park 20 out of 10, I would have done that. We were greeted while still in our motorhome, and then the owner walked in front of us to our pull through site. Once we were set up my husband went back to pay. No extra charge for our dog. Clean, well maintained park. As we were enjoying a glass of wine there was a knock on our door. The owner's son arrived with a welcome basket (salt taffy, popcorn for microwave, deck of cards and two herbal tea packets) in a basket plus day's Port Orford newspaper and travel magazines for the coast. It has been a very long time since we received this type of excellent service. We are Passport America members so the site was 1/2 price for us, but the service was full on. We travel up and down Oregon coast twice a year. This has jumped onto our preferred places to stay each time. We are right in town, yet our site is very quiet. It exceeds our expectation for a park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well looked after RV Park. The entrance is a bit difficult as the outer edge of the street dips quite low and the driveway is a bit steep for the first few feet, we dragged the the trailer hitch of our diesel pusher coming in from the south but did not suffer any damage. Exiting the park is via a side street and there are no problems. The sites are not too wide but adequate. There are services located within walking distance including a handy hardware store next door. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We would stay in this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small clean park that will handle a few large motorhomes. Utilities are in the proper place and in good working order. Park is located near several great tourist sites along the coast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Really nice small campground. Very well maintained. Owner is proud of this and should be as it's one of the cleanest, neatest places we've stayed. Easy in and out for big rigs, great utilities including TV channel selection. Wi-Fi was good and fast. Some permanent residents but no trashy people allowed as every site is neat and orderly. Owners are great people and go out of their way to make you comfortable. If you were thinking about passing up Port Orford: don't. The views from this area are easily the best coastal Oregon has to offer. Eat at Grifs on the dock; quite the place. We' definitely stay here again when passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In my opinion this is the nicest, cleanest, best maintained privately owned RV Park I have been to. The Owner is very friendly, check-in was a breeze. Very nice gravel sites with grass areas and paved roads. We were lucky to get a site, as this is a small Park. Sites were level and WiFi worked great. Had a small electrical problem with the pedestal and the Owner took care of it immediately. Did not use the restrooms or showers but I’m sure that they are immaculate like the rest of the park. The owners love this place, you can tell by the way the property is taken care of and the way the owners treat their guests. We would definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice well-maintained park. One of the best we have been to on or Oregon coast trip. Pull through big enough for 38 foot 5th wheel with 4 slides. Easy in-easy out. Lots of TV channels on cable. No laundry but nice laundromat across street. Host very nice. As previously stated in other review they brought us a goody basket and a local paper. Hardware and grocery store close. If you like a longer walk, walk to the port and watch the fishing boats come in and see the boats lifted from the water by a crane. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is such a quaint little park. It is one of the friendliest parks we have ever visited. The owner went out of his way to get us in a day early, even though he was nearly full. We were greeted the first day with a little gift basket, thanking us for staying with them. The owner gave us ideas for eating places and things to do. We will definitely stop here again when we come through this way. Our rate was with Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate was 'Good Sam' for an overnight pull through space. This is the kind of privately owned campground I like to give business to. I concur with comments from the reviewer below adding that the owner is a friendly guy. Gift basket delivered to site, included salt water taffy, microwave popcorn, two packs of gourmet teas; even though we stayed for only one night on our way north. A nice touch showing our business was appreciated. 'Port and Starboard' restaurant within easy walking distance had excellent food at an excellent price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful small RV park with some permanents, but it's very tidy and clean. Close to Hwy 101, but still very quiet at night. It is close to town with easy walking. Owners very helpful. We even got a nice little goodie basket and weekly newspaper on our step. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean, friendly, small but very private park. Has a neighborhood to walk my dog and safe surroundings. Manager is amazing, he will help with anything or leave you be and let you enjoy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another of our favorite spots on the coast! Our new 40' pusher fit fine and despite another poster's comments, there were 8 or 10 other "big rigs" in the park. Nice gift basket at arrival and the host helped us into our space. Close to stores and laundry right across the street. The owner was very kind and helped us change a fraying tire on our tow dolly. We will definitely stay here on our next coastal trip. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small park and not suitable for big rigs. We were lucky that no one was assigned the site next to us or our slides would have been touching. Though the host was very nice the owners never bothered to introduce themselves the entire time we were there. Also there were a lot of full timers and not many spots for other travelers and they have no laundry facilities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is small and so are the sites. My wife almost hit her head on the neighbors slide getting out of our trailer. Lots of full timers here that fill this park up. We got the last site here when we checked in. Sites are gravel with full hookups. Owner lives on-site and is extremely nice and helpful. Everything is clean here and even though I did not use the restrooms, I suspect they are also clean. The owners daughter delivered a nice little basket of goodies to the trailer. Nice touch. This is a lazy little town with the southern section on the water. We visited the lighthouse named after this town. Not much else to do here. If I needed to, I would stay here again. Just not a lot of room and things for the kids to do. Happy travels and be safe out there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This may be a small park, but the management make up for it with their friendly attitudes. It is well kept and right in town, and we will definitely stay here again. Thanks for your great service. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly, family-owned park. They have several long, pull-through sites. Right on Highway 101 in beautiful little Port Orford, on the scenic south Oregon coast. This park is neat and clean and staff is very helpful. Full hookups, and cable TV and WiFi included free. Plenty of things to do in this area. Excellent experience. We will definitely return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very clean and friendly RV Park, it is clean and they go out of their way to be of help if you need it. We stay here every fall for at least 2 months at a time and hope to stay 3 months in 2011. It is $29.00 a night, but by the month is a real good deal. Port Orford is a very nice small port town, and the people are so nice here. If you like to walk for fun or your health, walking is great here. Also, if you do not want to drive the the store it is a short walk. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our 5th time here, and loved it again. The owner and the host both came out to help us into our site. We received a lovely gift basket with goodies as always. Don't know what's up with a previous review as there are a few who apparently stay in the park full-time, and we saw 2 who were obviously disabled folks. Very clean and quiet well kept park close to everything. Love the clean and uncrowded Port Orford beaches, Cape Blanco lighthouse, and we tried a new restaurant in town called Redfish - wow! We will stay here again on our annual trip! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had a very nice stay here. This is a family run park with a friendly host. Everything looked clean, and it is located at the end of town so you can walk to the stores, restaurants, and movie theater. Port Orford is a lovely little town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A small but very comfortable park. Host was extremely helpful; even printed some local maps on his computer for me. Sites are gravel and were level and wide enough for our slide. There are two WiFi sites and both worked great. Office was very well supplied with RV parts should you need them. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. Would have rated the park a bit higher if they were updated. IE: the first place I've paid for showers in a long time. Showers are adequate but small, and would benefit from absorbent rug in front. Great breakfast and seafood restaurants nearby. Expensive laundry available across highway from park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is right on US 101. We had the first site in the park, and although you can hear the traffic, it was not bothersome at all. The owners were extremely friendly and very helpful. He cheerfully guided us into our site, and his daughter came over with a thank-you gift basket of goodies and a copy of the local newspaper. The park is small but very clean. The site pads are gravel, but level, hard and stable: no sinking or soft spots. Cable TV and WiFi are included in the full hook-up fee and both worked extremely well. We enjoyed our one night stay here, but if in the area would come back and stay longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our very first visit to Port Orford, and we will be back as soon as we can! Camp Blanco has everything we wanted and needed in an RV park. We travel with our three golden retrievers, and there was a great pet area, which we appreciated very much. The grounds are attractive: they work hard to keep us all comfortable and happy. I appreciate the provided Wi-Fi as I write a column for my local newspaper and need this service. My husband is pleased with the neatness and cleanliness of the entire facility. Our dogs are happy to have a nearby beach to romp upon. It all adds up to a perfect trip. It only rained at night: just like Camelot! We camped here in a Motorhome.

This RV park is probably the nicest park that we have stayed in during our trip through the Northwest. Jeff provided special help getting to the site and helping park the RV. The sites are not paved, but are gravel. The gravel pads are extremely level and solid. The pads are as firm and clean as a concrete pad might be. We were welcomed the first night of our stay by Jeff's daughter with a welcome basket with a few goodies. The site I parked in was a drive through that was long enough to park my 42' RV and two automobiles. Each site in the park has a light installed at the utility station. The park is just off of Hwy 101 on the west side of the road in Port Orford and is easily accessed from the highway. We enjoyed our stay there very much and will be returning when we are in the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great little park. We have traveled all over the US. Our second time back and we are staying this time for a month. Can’t believe some of the previous guys thought this park was misleading or too small. We count at least 6 very large coaches here now with no space issues. Plenty of room in all the sites for big rigs with tip outs. The nightly sites are a bit narrower but from what I can see they can all easily handle a 40-footer with tip-outs and the price is very reasonable. Located close to 3 nice beaches and the lighthouse. It has great owners and hosts and we always get a goodie basket. Owners are on-site and available most of the time to make any request possible. Our pets were welcomed: with doggie treats in the basket for them too. Will probably make this a yearly destination to get out of the valley heat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Upon entering Camp Blanco, the first thing we noticed was the sites. This is not a “parking lot”; it had sites with trees and grass and was very well laid out. Picnic tables and BBQs were at most sites. Meticulous is the word that best describes the overall care and attitude of this RV Park. It is within walking distance of the ocean. Beautiful vistas and trails abound. In inclement weather there is a nice rec-room for amusement. The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. All in all It was a wonderful experience. We highly recommend it!! Will return again and again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our 3rd trip through Port Orford, which is always a treat, and we always enjoy this little park. Exceptionally clean facilities and very friendly host and owners as previous reviewers said. Several deer walked right by the campground which was entertaining. I must comment on a recent previous reviewer. Yes a handful of the overnight spaces are narrower like many other parks, but there was still plenty of room for our 4 slideouts and our neighbors contrary to their posting, and our site was about 60 feet long. They must have had a bad day because I don't know how they can say these people have mislead anyone. Welcome basket delivered by the owners children is still a nice touch, and the owners encourages us guests to post reviews here via a note on the thank you card in our gift basket. The host also recommended Griffs restaurant on the dock which was very good, and we usually eat breakfast at the Paradise Cafe, where the huge pancakes are the size of your whole plate! We will definitely stay here anytime in Port Orford. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Jeff and family are wonderful, as previous raters have expressed. Still, this cannot be used to mislead people about the park. A previous reviewer said that the sites seemed a little tight. Perhaps that reviewer was in a parking lot next to a truck camper? If two big rigs parked side by side, they couldn't both open the window awnings if they had slides. One of the sites was so narrow that if the RVer opened the passenger-side door, it would open over the road. This is a Good Sam club. I wondered about this, given the narrowness (and barely long enough length) of the transient sites. I decided that this must be because the permanent sites are so lovely. The setting for them is pastoral. Large lots, big trees, and room to breathe without hearing a neighbor's TV. If I wanted a permanent base in the area, I would certainly choose this park. If I wanted a place to spend the evening and relax after a day's driving, I would look elsewhere. Of course, if you have been overwhelmed with the awesome magnificence of the Oregon coast, and you need something to reintroduce you to reality - to shock you back to your senses - this will do the trick. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owner went out of his way to make sure we were in a site we liked. Helped us get into our site and made sure we had enough room for our truck. When we came back from visiting the area we had a welcome package. Very clean and friendly park. Very high on my list of parks and we have been traveling from the Maine coast to the Oregon coast staying mostly at KOA's. This has most KOA'S beat by a mile and it's cheaper too! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was an excellent experience. We totally enjoyed the smaller feel of the park. Not the biggest sites but excellently maintained. Port Orford has beautiful beaches nearby and lots of things to do. Fishing and boating on Garrison Lake and beachcombing. The hosts of the park were very accommodating and helpful. You get a small gift basket with cookies and tea delivered to your site! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Great place. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a very neat and clean park, with exceptionally helpful camp hosts/managers. The sites are very narrow, and one does feel a little “tight” in the spaces. It is close to very beautiful scenery and beaches all along the coast. The park is heavily treed, and there are not many spaces in total – and just a very few for big rigs. We made reservations 3 months in advance, and undoubtedly big rigs may need even more notice. The park is a wonderful base for visiting coastal southern Oregon and, yes, the Crazy Norwegian is a great place for fish and chips; however, an EVEN BETTER place is just up the road in Bandon. Look for the Bandon Fish Market on the north end of the docks – their fish and chips were exceptional! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'm sure you all know how sometimes in life the people you deal with are the most important factor in a transaction. Well Jeff and his family are beyond compare when it comes to perfect hosts. I wish we could have stayed at Camp Blanco all summer just to be with them and the other nice people we met there. Loved our pull-through site. Had 30 amp but never needed the 50 amp we had requested. Great shade, clean, clean, clean...nice flowers...small and intimate. Port Orford Beach, just south of town, was gorgeous and long. Cape Blanco State Park was an all day visit. Battle Rock Harbor and the Coast Guard Museum were very interesting. Lots of good hiking at the museum. The harbor was fascinating with it's boat hoist system..only 6 like it in the world. Our 3 days were filled with things to do and some good food. Some of the sites are a little close together but others offer lots of privacy. Tell Jeff what you need and he will see what he can do. Great little boat restored with a bedroom for overflow guests. You are going to like it here unless you are looking for a pristine, paved and landscaped site out of a magazine. Loved the little welcome basket delivered by Jeff's children. These owners go above and beyond the call of duty to make your stay wonderful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice clean quiet campground. The owners are very friendly and very helpful. Best located campground in Port Orford, very easy access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Very clean/neat sites. Extremely friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely recommend this park to any one. We did not have a reservation but they were able to accommodate us with no problems. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
The actual owners were out of town when we called about the Park. Despite being out of town they were very friendly and accommodating. They made liaison with the host at the time to ensure we had a spot when we got there. The good: Very clean. Nice bathrooms. Nicely manicured facility. Good lighting. Close to amenities. Good proximity between places to visit (Brookings, Bandon, Coos bay). Very friendly staff. Lengthy sites for large RV/trailers. The bad: very small sites overall. No view. Right on 101 Hwy. Our site was right across the street from houses in a neighborhood. The neutral: NOTHING to do in Port Orford. RV park right across the street from the police station. Park host at the time did not give us the code for the internet or the bathroom so we had to find him on a couple of occasions to get them. This in a nutshell is a small, quaint but clean place to stop off if you need a place to stop during a trip, or if you want a spot equally distant from a couple of towns with something to do. Very boring if you are trying to entertain young children as the beach is not extremely accessible and the dock is a working dock not a boardwalk per se for a stroll. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

I love this park! What a quaint little find! The owner couldn't have been more friendly. He's the type of person you hope to encounter after a long day on the road. He gave great supper recommendations (Griff's - check it out!) and dropped off a welcome basket our first night there. The rest rooms and showers are great. You pay 25 cents for a 10-minute shower but it's chump change for the heat and water pressure you get. I can't recommend this place enough. I'm holding off on a perfect 10 because the wi-fi oomph left something to be desired. Otherwise, go and stay! You can thank me later! ;) We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fantastic smaller but very cozy and inviting park. Extremely tidy and well maintained. We were very surprised to get a welcome basket and a local newspaper brought to our door, something we've never received before. There were some narrower sites as some earlier posts said, but there are several wider spacious sites too. Good Wi-Fi. No 50 amp but the owners said they will have 50 amp sites this summer. Probably the cleanest little park we have stayed in. Will definitely make a point to return here! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners were very friendly and accommodating. We received a very nice welcome basket and a newspaper the evening that we stayed. We will choose this RV park again if we are in Port Orford. Just a side note there is an excellent restaurant that serves great fish and chips, called The Crazy Norwegian's, in this small town. We camped here in a Truck Camper.

Very nice, small park. Owner was very friendly and helped us park in our site. Welcome basket with local information and treats was delivered to us later - I have never seen this before. Sites are narrow but would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Bathrooms were spotless and the owners and the camp host were very friendly and accommodating. Our only problem was our space was so narrow that we were right on top of our neighbors. We didn't have a picnic table and there was no place to set up lawn chairs. We were there for a week. If we were passing through we'd definitely stay again, but wouldn't for an extended stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very friendly, family owned and operated park. It is a very nice little RV Park right on highway 101 in Port Orford along the beautiful southern Oregon coast. Stop by here if you are traveling along the 101, and you won't be sorry. The owners will go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Also take some time to enjoy the nice little town of Port Orford while you are here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our site was in front nearest the highway. It definitely was noisier than sites in the back. Friendly host who offered the cheapest propane in the area, if not the entire Oregon coast. Most sites seemed to be occupied by seasonals. County park and a small lake within walking distance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park for a small town. Only downside to the park were the sites were a tad narrow for a large motorhome. Staff very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place ROCKS!! The grounds were well kept and the restroom were extremely clean. The owners bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. We look forward to returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a small but well maintained campground. We had no trouble maneuvering with a 40' motorhome towing a car. Did not need to disconnect. Owner was at out site checking to make sure we had room to put out slides and awnings and even offered to cut tree branches if we felt we needed more room. About an hour after we checked in, a thank you basket (cookies, tea, and popcorn) was delivered to us. That was definitely a first. Our site had a grassy area for our dogs and they also had a small but grassy pet area, not dirt and no extra charge for dogs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I've never written a review before but this campground is exceptional. The family who owns it is so friendly and helpful and the campground is spotless. They really care and it is like camping in your grandmother's back yard. It's also very protected from the wind. To top it off, we received a welcome basket. What a nice idea. That is a first! We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Clean, quiet, courteous, location; what's not to like, as we like it all. Port Orford is small, and the park is within easy walking distance to all areas of the town. We've spent about four months here last year and this, and could not be happier with the spot. (Note that we rent here by the month, which is reflected in the low nightly rate entry.) We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

I don't review all the parks we stay at, but I feel this one is special in its own way. It's not big or new, and there seems to be a lot of full time residents. I really don't like that, but here it just didn't seem to matter. The owners were helpful, friendly, and down to earth people. The welcome basket was just something that made me smile. Nice restuarant nearby. I felt comfortable, like I was camping in my backyard. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Also received a welcome basket, nice touch; very friendly and accommodating; located just inside town limits, easy access to grocery store & hardware store; convenient laundromat across the street; some problem with electricity while there, power went off quite often; wifi very convenient; dog walking area but garbage can provided not emptied while there; did enjoy our time at this location; Good Sam park We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice clean park. We were surprised to receive a welcome basket at check-in. The owners also provided free internet access at their office, if you did not have your own computer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Paved interior roads with very large paved, level back-in sites. Probably half the sites are easily accessible to big rigs. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. Strong 50 amp power. Many of the sites are very well screened from each other with brush and trees. We were there during a bad wind/rain storm, and the trees screened us very well from the gusts that were forecast to hit 80 MPH. The dump station is permanently closed, but there are four unnumbered sites with sewer connections on the one-lane road to the beach from the campground. I asked the camp host, and he said those sites are available for the same $16 as the numbered sites. We chose not to take one because it would have meant backing out of that road to the main road when it came time to leave, not something I wanted to try with the Bulgemobile. Poor-to-fair Verizon voice and 3G data service. I think I could have hit the Dish Network satellites if I set up the tripod, but it was too stormy out to make it worthwhile. No reception from the rooftop satellite dish, and I didn't see any sites where that would be possible. This is a beautiful, heavily forested campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you want a quiet campground, this is your place. Most sites are very deep and wide, suitable for a big rig, with shrubs providing some privacy. No Wi-Fi, no TV, no newspaper and no sewer (and no dump station, either), and the nearest store is nearly ten miles away. Visually, this place is very pretty and it is a perfect spot to get away from it all. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice Oregon State park. There are many deep sites for big rigs, all have water and electric. Most sites have good privacy and many trees and vegetation. This park is 1st come, 1st serve with no reservations taken. We could not see our neighbors from our site, #53. The bathrooms and showers were clean. Our site was clean and level, it had a paved driveway and parking pad. The trail to the beach was steep but very pretty, you could walk or drive to the beach. Nearby there are tours of the Cape Blanco Lighthouse and another of a historic home. Both were good tours with an outstanding job by the hosts. Note: The dump station is out of service so there is no dump station here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the most beautiful state park I have ever seen. You have the beach within a very short walk from any site in the RV park loop. You have a lighthouse, you have a historical Victorian style mansion to tour. The sites are VERY secluded from each other. We saw two little deer walking across one of the sites as we pulled in. There is very little in the town of Port Orford, but fantastic scenery and supposedly whale watching opportunities at the observation point by the Port Orford Welcome center. There are lighthouse tours if you are interested. Caveat--NO AT & T cell phone service and VERY poor Verizon air card coverage, but internet varies from site to site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent state park! It has huge, private sites and nice trails. It is nicely laid out. Our Verizon air card and phone worked very well. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Oregon state parks are the best. This was like camping in the old days but with W & E, hot showers. They also have recycling bins. Verizon cell phone worked but air card would not. Worth it to be out here. Be sure to visit the the lighthouse. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is the off season rate. All sites have water and 50/30/20 amp electric. No sewer, and the dump station had a sign stating it was closed indefinitely due to drainfield failure. Widely spaced, very private sites with paved asphalt access and asphalt pads with fire ring and picnic table. Not the place if you want satellite reception, but otherwise it has all that is needed for a relaxing time. Note the park is about 5 miles off Hwy 101, accessed by a fairly narrow, somewhat curvy road so it is not as heavily utilized as some of the other coastal state park campgrounds. Excellent value and location: we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We went to this park after reading a good review from this site. We were 100% impressed and could have stayed for a long time. The camp host was helpful, friendly, and there to help us with anything we needed. Some spaces are 70' long and we didn't even have to unhook. It is absolutely beautiful, clean, and family friendly. Only problem we had was no T-Mobile service and no AT&T aircard service. Made for a very nice quiet stay. Thank you so much for this site and the people who take the time to write the reviews. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The 5 mile drive off Hwy 101 causes many to pass this park by. That's too bad for them since this is a great place: long, level, private sites, 20/30/50 power and easy access to beaches. It's first come, first served but usually this campground does not fill up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Agree with all the sentiments posted below. Another spotless Oregon State park with great sites, hiking and beach. Highly recommend the walk to the light house, the vistas are stunning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Outstanding park. Agree with all previous postings (large sites, great trails, friendly hosts, well-run campground). Will add these notes: firewood available for sale ($5), outstanding showers and bathrooms, intriguing cabins (if you had friends or family to join you), and recycling (hooray!). We were heading for the private CAMP Blanco RV Park, based on reviews on this site, but came across this state park first. Once we checked it out, we knew that no private CG could compete. A jewel if you like space and natural beauty. Would've been a 10 if the dump facilities had been open. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A quiet, private, well run and very clean Oregon State Park. Sites are generally large and private with 50 amp service for only $12/day (off season). Visit to nearby Cape Blanco lighthouse and Hughes house are worthwhile. Views of coastline are spectacular (short walk to view sites, a little longer to beach). Sprint data worked (slowly), satellite was very difficult due to tall trees. Dump site permanently closed, nearest dump site in Port Orford (Chevron station). Adjacent (nearby) campsites with equestrian facilities by reservation. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Quiet, peaceful, deep sites with water and electric. The dump station is closed indefinitely until it is completely rebuilt. Little to no AT&T with weak Verizon coverage (air card). Satellite is tough because of all the trees. Only one host in October. Sites are level and well kept. High water pressure (70 psi at site #8) so use caution. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful Oregon State Park. Privacy,50 amp service, and water is available. Views from this area are excellent and the lighthouse is very interesting. The length of sites really help big R.V.s. The dump station is closed because of problems. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This state campground has the best sites of any campground in the Oregon park system. They are wide, deep with well developed shrubs between the sites. It is windy, here, being on the Cape but what a wonderful place to relax, enjoy the Lighthouse, the beaches and the quaint town of Port Orford. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A co-worker joked with me that when I went to Cape Blanco, be sure to keep everything tied down. The reality is that the park is sheltered from most wind. It was the most beautiful park I have visited in a long time. The sites were huge (50'-84') and most were secluded where you can't see your neighbor. The bathrooms were spotless and showers had plenty of hot water. Cell service is spotty. I never met the camp hosts and all the other campers respected the rules. I am planning on going again over Memorial Day. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean, very nice area with very friendly hosts. Close to downtown Port Orford and many other attractions. Already have planned another stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Oregon upgraded the water and electric hook-ups at this park recently. There is now 30 amp power available. Sites are level, long, and private. Combine the improved facilities with the already great location and you have a great destination. It is located quite a bit off the beaten path (5 miles off Highway 101) but that contributes to the quiet, serene nature of the park. Expect it to be windy and/or foggy: it almost always is. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a beautiful place! This is a large, well maintained Oregon State Park. The sites are very large with a lot of big trees and alot of space between them. The campground hosts were friendly and helpful. The park is nice and quiet, even on a summer weekend when it was full. It's a fairly short walk to the beach, but coming back it's all uphill! This hike would not be suitable for someone in poor health. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of many outstanding state parks in Oregon. Huge sites with lots of trees everywhere. Sites mostly level and paved. A short walk to the ocean. Dump station. Firewood for sale. No store We camped here in a camper.
Nice two-lane paved road to camp. Camp road gravel. Many sites in grass meadow, with no site pad, so an RV may park any direction. One water spigot for camp, with threaded connection. 2 Universal access toilets in camp, both have two vault toilets, with solar lights. Each site has picnic table, fire ring. Edson Creek is in back of camp with easy access. Creek is not visible through trees. Sixes River day use is next to camp, with deep water pools. My MiFi worked here. Easy to move a big rig through camp. Camp is hosted. Camp is surrounded by trees, but is fairly sunny. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is full of permanent people and their yards full of junk. Junk is everywhere, and we could see people peeking through dirty windows at us, TVs blaring. The rate has been lowered to $10 because the park is in such disrepair. It was scary and creepy, and after getting the information and seeing the place, we chose not to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked the park but it was small and not the best kept we have been in. All is the same as the post above but they do have Wi-Fi and it is included in the price. Will stay again if we come through here again. Liked man who runs the place and he is real helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park suited us fine for 2 nights. Don't expect amenities, there are none. There are several permanent, sort of trashy RV's. Could only see 3 pull through sites. Water, power, sewer, cable worked good. Manager very busy trying to keep up place but really makes his living as a fisherman. Might stay again due to price and convenience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A small Park but very acceptable for overnight or, as we were, in a holding pattern in the rain before moving on. It is conveniently located right in Town and close to the Beach. Good clean facilities for laundry and bathrooms. Someone cares very much about this Park and it shows. It is well kept but with limited space. Good Wi-Fi. Full hook-up. We stayed here at the Passport America rate of $15.50/night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Time to update the review on this park and warn RVers. Passport Am. rate of $14-15 would be too high for this dump. We coming in to find the mgr. "gone fishing'" and unleashed, scary dogs walking around. The lone shower/toilet was in bad shape. Run-down, junky trailers around perimeter and 2 very nice rigs sitting in the 2 pull-thru sites (why?). There are much nicer, still affordable places in town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport rate of $14.50 plus $1 tax paid. The park is a 5/6 kind of place. There are mostly older trailers here, but overall appearance of park is neat versus trashy. People were nice enough and pretty much kept to themselves. Owner / mgr here is very nice and will give you lots of suggestions on what to see and do in the area. We were in one of the two pull throughs and they were nice sites with good hookup connections. Two words of caution, mapping software is wrong. This is two blocks west of 101 on 9th. It is not down Coast Guard Hill road per mapping software. Also, figure on unhooking your toad. It is a hard turn getting out. We pulled in with our 36' Motor Home with toad on dolly, but put car on after getting out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is under new ownership. The setting is very nice but the facilities are in some disrepair. Maneuverability is limited for large rigs but manageable. There appear to be only three sites that are not permanents. Directly up a hill from the campground is Port Orford Heads with some wonderful views of the coast. WiFi was not available when we stayed but is supposed to be coming. It was a good spot at the Passport America rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of Oregon's best kept secrets, this park's location (shielded by Humbug Mountain), keeps it sunny and warm while the surrounding area is fog-covered and cold. Sites are all paved, and there are some pull-thru sites available for big rigs. Restrooms and showers were recently upgraded and are spotlessly maintained by the staff, who are friendly and willing to help if needed. There are great trails up the mountain and down the coast, open areas for kids to play, and a trail to the beach. Throw in the the blackberries and huckleberries ripe for picking and it just doesn't get much better. Although Port Orford doesn't offer much, there's a grocery market and a great restaurant called the Crazy Norwegian. No broadcast TV or internet, but clear shots to the satellites are available from most sties. An amazing place. We'll stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Oregon State Parks are the best. This is a well kept campground in a nice setting. The sites are plenty roomy for big rigs and the hookups are great. We walked the Humbug Trail and had a great time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small beautiful state park with access to the ocean. It is very green and park-like with large space between RV's. The park wasn't very crowded when we visited so it felt very private. There is a access path to the ocean, and lots of place to walk in the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great value as with most Oregon State Parks on the coast. $16 for power/water with free dump at entrance. Lots of variety with sites. Some are in the trees and back onto the creek, others are more open and back or front on to a open grass field. Large pull through sites available - up to 96 ft. Highway is visible and audible from some sites; however, it did not bother us as the road is quite at night. Short walk to secluded beach - beautiful views of the ocean from this beach. Humbug trail is accessible from campground. There are two loops. We stayed at the loop near the ocean and the highway bridge - it has the pull through sites. Showers were warm and clean enough. Lots of hiking trails start from this campground. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Oregon does state parks right. This is so very nice. Walk to the beach. 3 nice trails close by. Sits along a creek. Have stayed here many times. If you want pull through hookups reserve it. We were surprised at how busy it was and that we lucked out and got an electric pull through site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had planned to camp at Cape Blanco State Park but the temperature was in the 50's so we moved on to Humbug Mountain. When we arrived a couple of hours later, the temperature was in the 70's. The campground is beautifully sheltered in between Humbug Mountain and China Mountain and yet it is only a short walk to the beautiful beach from the largest camping area. Most of the sites are in a circle around an open grassy area, - adequate shade for most sites but not as much site separation as in many other Oregon campgrounds. There are good trails for hiking including the impressive climb to the top of Humbug Mountain. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is generally a nice park and a good environment for kids. Most evenings there was a presentation in the amphitheater by park staff. The park is exceptionally well maintained and the employees are both friendly and helpful. The only reason we didn't rate this one a 10 is its proximity to the highway. Most mornings you wake up to the sound of a trucker's jake brake. Even though guests are encouraged to pick up after their pets, every single dog owner we saw thought nothing of it to let pooch make a dump in either a vacant camp site or on the center lawn area. Be careful in the nearby town of Port Orford, population 1190; it is a notorious speed trap. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice quiet campground, short walk to beach. All sites paved as are roads. Sites semi-private with trees and plants/brush in between them. You drive in, find a empty spot, park and then go to a "post" and fill out a small form and insert your money in the envelope and drop in the box. No reservations. Has dump station on way out. Six miles south of Port Orford. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park calls itself "friendliest RV park on the Oregon coast," and they're probably right. Nice clientele, many repeat guests who come for the season. Daily social time, other occasional social events. Adequate grassy sites and parking, attractive landscaping, quiet. Hosts were available and helpful and made every effort to anticipate our needs. Good laundry facility with large, commercial dryers that dried my loads for 50-75 cents. We look forward to returning here. Rate reflects a Passport America discount. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Awesome park. One of the nicest we have stayed in. Small, quaint and people are so friendly. This park shows pride of ownership, extremely well taken care of. Price reflects Passport America. Includes full hookups with cable TV and Wi-Fi. Will most definitely recommend this park and we will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This charming little RV park is perfect for the older set (which is what we found here in September). No playground - not terribly kid friendly. The landscaping and decorating are the nicest we've seen in a long time, and the owner/operators are helpful and charming. Great Wi-Fi and cable TV. Nice sites with small concrete patio and grass or gravel under your rig. Very quiet location. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Small family-owned park with very friendly owners. Paved roads with level gravel sites and grass. Sites have picnic table and recycling bin. Great landscaping and very quiet. Excellent Verizon and Wi-Fi service. Morning coffee and afternoon get-togethers. Most sites are back-in but a couple of pull-throughs. Park is close to town, the Cape Blanco Lighthouse, and a great little seafood restaurant (Griff's) on the Port Orford dock. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet park in a small town on the Oregon coast, this is it. The owners have done a wonderful job of turning this park into a homey get away. They go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy. The restrooms and laundry are spotless and the general appearance of the park is welcoming with lots of nice landscaping and decorating. I cannot say enough about the work that the owners have put into this park. There is excellent cable, Wi-Fi, morning coffee and evening get-togethers, potlucks, and other activities. Agate hunting, beautiful beaches, and gorgeous hikes and scenery are close by. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We planned to stay a couple nights but ended up staying a week. It was a very clean but small park, just the way we like them. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked excellent. The hosts were great and very helpful with things to see and do around the town. We would certainly visit again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a nice park. Family owned and they take pride in maintaining this park. Fresh baked goods and coffee at morning social. For us, THE place to stay in Port Orford. Will plan on it next trip through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet campground and was good for an overnight stay. Not a place for access to the ocean. Several long term residents in the park. Pet friendly! Would stay here again for just an overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the most laid-back and friendly park I've ever heard of let alone stayed in. All facilities are kept immaculate. Quiet. An older park, so not spacious, but the owners have gone all out to make everything as functional and aesthetically pleasing as possible. The sweet vibe here is contagious. Patrons can use the shop, the freezer, a rock tumbling/meat smoking/scuba tank charging shed (away from the campground, so no noisy). There's a well appointed crafts/exercise/banquet room, a coffee room (free each morning with baked goods) and a covered and heated happy /social hour space, plus a patio. Close to miles of walkable beaches in a small seaside town. I paid by the month, $340 with Escapees discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park, green grass at your site and picnic tables. Very clean and neat. The owners have taken pride and you see it. Verizon cell worked great and WiFi was fast and reliable. We stayed for 5 days and would come back here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stopped at Port Orford RV Village for a 3-night stay and ended up staying 2 weeks! We loved it there. A small and somewhat dated park (we often refer to these parks as "established" and prefer them to the new and fancy). The on-site owners are very involved in keeping everything in tip top shape on a day-to-day basis. Coffee and muffins in the morning and happy hour in the afternoon provided an opportunity for people to come together in a friendly and sociable atmosphere. This is the kind of experience we so enjoy as full-timers. If you're not interested in people this isn't the place for you! From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left , we felt welcome. Laundry and bathrooms were spotless. Sites are flat gravel with grass borders with scattered plantings of flowers and shrubs throughout the park. The park is far enough off the main highway so traffic noise was never an issue. Semi-permanent sites (park models) are very neat and tidy as everyone takes pride in their property. Several bird feeders were scattered about which the owner's maintain. When the owner discovered we were birdwatchers, she spent time collecting information for us. Port Orford, on its own, is a fun little town and there are plenty of things to do for 40 miles in either direction. We will go back and stay longer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
On-site owners work hard to take care of their guests and maintain a sense of community and pride in this park, and it shows. With coffee every morning and happy hour in the afternoon, guests have a chance to get to know each other. We joined a group on a trip to Coquille for theater and dinner, and left just before the park's "Summer Olympics." There are many seasonal renters who come back year after year. That says something! We enjoyed our week catching up with friends and meeting new ones. With lots to explore up and down the coast, and dependable strong WiFi, we could have stayed longer. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park with super friendly, helpful, youngish owners who live and work onsite. Quite a few rigs are here for 3-6 months, rain and all. They seem to know each other well and really care about the park. Not much here though; need to drive to the beach or town, such as it is. Cable TV was excellent; no wifi but VZ aircard works. Dial-up computer available in Library. Sewer hookups are on concrete slabs above ground and towards the back, so bring a long hose and holders. GS and Escapee discounts offered. Seems like spending a whole season here would be boring and way too rainy but that fits some folks, and you could do a lot worse for a park. Probably the best stop in Port Orford. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park deserves a 10 just for the effort put into making your stay a good one. They have what you need, but they also keep it nice, are friendly, helpful and interested in their customers. This is a small park, in a small town, with easy access to the ocean, nice restaurants, beautiful views and the park is off the main drag by one block. We would definitely come back here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was clean and well maintained with adequate site size but minimal open space around the sites. What makes the park special is the host/owners. They live in the park and do everything possible to make the stay a wonderful experience. Scheduled group social activities made our stay more like visiting friends than staying in a RV park. We came for 2 nights and stayed a week. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an excellent, small, quiet campground with hosts that will do everything possible to make your stay a pleasure to remember! We have numerous friends that have camped here in the past, and some are currently camping there, that led us to it. Very clean and neat throughout and we will certainly camp here again this summer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
