This is our favorite Oregon State Park. There is a maze of trails through the dense forest between the campground and the ocean bluffs. There is a great beach to walk or drive on too. It is very quiet here and well protected from the storms. Plenty of large sites (compared to many other coastal state parks) for big rigs too. Nice hosts and park employees along with the well maintained facilities make this place a ten! Host sites with sewer hook ups are available to the public during the winter season. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It would be nice if all state parks could reach the level of Cape Blanco State Park. The park is beautifully laid out my large very private campsites. There are lots of interesting trails adjacent to the campsite to go either for a stroll or a serious hike. The setting is deep and dense forest on a bluff overlooking a stunning beach and bay, with the lighthouse not too far off in the distance. I could hear the waves crashing below from my campsite in the mood changed frequently with the fog drifting in or out. The campground seems to be exceptionally well run. We were approached by the camp host who was on duty. He was very outgoing and help us select our site and fill out the forms. It was very hospitable and welcoming.

The showers and bathrooms were well-maintained despite the constant onslaught of kids tracking dirt and pine needles in. in. With the heavily wooded campsites, there was a nice feeling of privacy, though you could hear the sounds of other campers. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

Point Orford is a very interesting small town in a beautiful setting. It seems noteworthy that there are three excellent restaurants within a short distance of Point Blanco.

Plenty of room for our Class B RV. Our shaded site backed up to trees along the cliff overlooking the beach. full hook up, wood available for campfires. We will return to this State campground.

We were lucky to get a site that was just being vacated. This is a very popular campground and in the summer at least, looks like it's almost always full. It was very foggy and windy and quite cold when we stayed there, but still a great campground. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

The lighthouse is a short hike/bike ride from the park. There's a trail down to the mostly deserted beach. Our dog loved it.

Beautiful area, campground well kept. Thick woods and shrubs afford very private sites. Paved, level, 50 amp service and water. Unfortunately the dump station was out of service due to drainfield failure. Wind was not a factor, nice walk to the beach and to the lighthouse. They are first come, first served for the RV sites, firewood available from camp host, and bath/showers are in excellent condition, well maintained and clean. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 nights while we toured the Oregon coast. Nice campground with w & e only. The dump station was out of service while we were there. During our stay the wind was blowing most of the time but with all the surrounding vegetation we were blocked from most of it. They have a few very long sites which we needed. I think our site was 81' back in. We had to disconnect our car hauler and move it in to the site by hand due to the roadway only being wide enough for 1 vehicle. This was not a problem for us, just thought I would mention it. We are 65' feet with the mh & car hauler. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

What a gem! Five miles off the 101 Cape Blanco is well worth the detour. The campground is located in the woods, most sites are heavily treed, so no ocean views. But the Cape with the lighthouse is only a 20 minute stroll on a very nice trail along the coastline. More trails within the park.

The sites are well spaced and mostly surrounded by shrubs and greenery. Excellent privacy. Super quiet at night. Our site was level and provided good hookups. I think there were about a dozen sites that would accommodate our 34' fifth wheel and allow maneuvering. We had Verizon reception that was excellent at times but almost dropped out for hours in the evening.

A trail leads down to the beach where you can walk all the way back to the Cape and up to the parking lot there.

We will be back and enjoy a few days here. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is another excellent Oregon State Park! Five miles off Hwy 101 and very close to the ocean which means a very quiet park and a good nights sleep. As stated before, satellite access is difficult, almost impossible, however we were able to pick up the Dish satellite on our roof-mount from our site. Probably 5% of the sites will have satellite access. Verizon voice and data worked fine for us here. Most sites are heavily treed and offer great privacy. The bathrooms are clean and the entire park is clean and well kept. If you enjoy Oregon State Parks, this is one of the best. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park 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 at Cape Blanco State Park 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 at Cape Blanco State Park 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 at Cape Blanco State Park 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 at Cape Blanco State Park 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 at Cape Blanco State Park 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 at Cape Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.
