All paved roadways in camping loops, paved campsite pads, mostly dirt areas surrounding parking spaces w/fire pits; camp hosts circulate wood sales from 5-8 PM to each site, beach accesses multiple depending on campsite loop, some open areas allow mobile satellite dish access, cell phone service limited. Compliments to both camp hosts and Ranger staff to make 5 day stay an enjoyable, memorable occasion. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Beach access, Day use area a nice picnic area, Cape Meares and Pacific City w/great restaurants short drive and Tillamook for shopping, Cheese stores tours and samplings only 11 miles and enjoyable
We actually paid zero because my husband is a disabled vet. Nice park but for mosquitos. We stayed inside. The sites are fairly close and some sites had to share fire pits. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

Watch out for the potholes on the county road leading to the park. Park roads and site pads paved (good condition). There was a pretty beat up table on the site as well. There is a notice posted that budget cuts have forced some deferral of maintenance. Our site pad was not level, but I was able to fix that. All hookups worked fine. No Wi-Fi or TV. That hardly mattered as this place is for relaxing and walking the beach. For that it gets a 10. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

Paved roads and sites. Good power. They have shut down the loops by the beach for the winter but the loops with power and sewer are still open. The rate reflects the winter rate. Verizion MiFi works well here. This CG is well located to check out the sites in the area. The showers were clean but it was just a push button shower and all I can say was that it was warm but the ambient tempature bathroom did not encourage you to hang out in the shower too long. The trash is located by the front gate so it's a bit of a walk to the reycyling center. I'd stay here again. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate include reservation fee. Visited park in a very extreme storm with 50 mph gales. The sites do hold water and there can be blowing sand, but good wind break. Road to entry (Whiskey Road?) is somewhat difficult to drive, but may have been the weather. Park is somewhat isolated. No Direct TV signal and weak AT&T cell/air card. Am sure the beach is nice, but was confined to RV due to weather for three days! We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for one night after a horrible stay in another park. Stayed in D-loop with awesome access to the beach. Site was a bit tight to get into due to brush, but at the same time, the brush provided privacy. Rangers were helpful. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The county road leading to the park has definitely deteriorated since our last visit here two years ago. The state park roads appear to have been repaved for some of the loops. Our site in D loop was a paved back-in and needed some boards for levelling. All utilities worked fine. No cable or local TV, but satellite TV from our site (D9) worked fine. Some maintenance around the park has not been done due to government cuts. Due to the fantastic beach and superlative natural areas this is one park we will always want to return. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great Oregon State campground with full hook-ups. During the winter one of the loops is reservable and the other is first-come. One of the loops is closed because it floods. The roads are a little tight but not bad. There are only a few sites with satellite access, but our Verizon phone and air card worked well here. The beach and trails are wonderful for walking and there are many activities in the area. We would definitely return to this park. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

Great location, but needs some maintenance especially pruning. Many older trees were hanging too low and into the loop road where we camped and some sites one could really scratch your RV if you're not careful. Sites are faintly close together and maneuverability is okay but fairly compact. We got the last site which had our sewer right next to the picnic table and fire ring - what a view. The non-hookup sites were newer, cleaner, had grass and fewer trees which would be nicer during cool or rainy weather, so pick your site carefully. They'd closed some of the loops closest to the ocean for the season, prematurely I think, as all the hookup sites were full on a weeknight. No comment on the bathrooms as I didn't check them out. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.
Great Oregon state park -- very popular. The RV sites were all taken so we stayed in a site that didn't have any hookups. No big deal since we only stayed a couple of days and the site was great as it was close to the beach and large enough to comfortably handle our 29 foot rig. Access to the beach requires you to walk over 20 yards of ankle breaker rocks. Depending on your ability it might be something to consider. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 5 nights and very much enjoyed it. However, coming from Nehalem Bay State Park we realized that this is an older park. Nothing wrong with the sites, they even had sewer, but the restrooms are definitely dated. They were about as clean as you can reasonably keep them but the overall picture definitely makes you keep your flip-flops on in the shower. The Virgin mobile service really sucked and almost only past midnight I was able to get some data through (phone and internet). The beach access is great, the roads are all paved, some sites have more trees and some sites are pretty open. Wind and rain can be a real hassle on certain November days as we had to find out. For bigger rigs you might have to search for a long enough site for your RV and tow, however, we didn't have a problem with a 35' 5th-wheel. The hookups worked fine and are the usual style as you find in state parks. We will certainly return if again in this area but will choose another provider for our phone and internet. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Another great park at an excellent price. Not far from Tillamook if you want to take some side trips. We had full hookups with sewer, some sites are electric and water only. We will be back. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park that is really close to the beach. Sites are grassy with paved pads to park on. Vegetation separates you from your neighbor. Unfortunately the spots are very tight and difficult to get in. Our spot was at right angles to the roadway and with people across the way we had an extremely hard time getting in. Fortunately getting out was easy because the people across the way had left. This is not a big rig friendly park and we are only 36 feet! For someone with a smaller rig it would be a wonderful park to stay in. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

Did not have reservations so had to take a 'dry' site, which was fine. Convenient beach access and good Verizon service in the A-loop. Not as scenic as some other Oregon State Parks and off the beaten path so may be not worth the drive for just one night. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.
We love Oregon state parks. We were able to stay at three during our June trip up the coast with no reservations. This was our second one, and we had the beach just a couple of hundred yards behind our site. The park rangers are very friendly and helpful, and the sites are beautiful. If you can live without Wi-Fi (or bring your own 3G card) and laundry facilities for a little while, these parks are the way to go, and you can't beat the price. The only other downside is the showers which, like most state parks, use the "push button" system where one temperature fits all. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.
