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.

Tips for other Campers:

Cape Blanco Lighthouse, town of Port Orford nearby.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

The light house tour & the homestead tour were both very interesting within the park. We also enjoyed the harbor town of Bandon.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Tour the lighthouse!

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.

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 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.

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 at Cape Blanco State Park 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 at Cape Blanco State Park 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 at Cape Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.
