“Extraordinary Lighthouse and Beaches”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

This place speaks for itself with a gorgeous lighthouse and beach views that go on for miles. At sunset, a herd of deer scampered by as we took photos of the Cape Blance lighthouse. The reflection of the sun off of the lens was blinding. Walk along the beaches and enjoy the chipmunks and other wildlife. Good use for your weekly State Park Pass.

“Another great Oregon state park”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Very nice protected campground among trees. Great privacy between many sites. Within hiking distance of the Cape Blanco lighthouse and several beautiful walking beaches along the scenic coast. Hiking trails along the bluffs above the beach. Electric and water hookups available along with showers. Can handle fairly long RV's. Nice, quiet paved road to bike between Hwy 101 and the park (5 miles).

“What a Great Park”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

This was our first visit to an Oregon State Park and we loved it. I love the ease of getting around in an RV, the campsites are well laid out, not too hard to get into, well trimmed from tree branches, and paved. Facilities are good, though they are having problems with their drain field for the dumpstation and it is temporarily/permanently closed -- with directions on how to get to a pay dumpstation outside the park.

“Another beautiful place!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

The only disappointment was that the lighthouse is closed on Tuesdays and we were there on a Tuesday, so no opportunity to get close/go inside this lighthouse for us on this trip. But otherwise, it was another beautifully scenic place to stop and take photographs and enjoy the fresh sea air!
