This campground has a berm that blocks all ocean views. This campground is great for families with kids . The flip side comes with a lot of crying kids and really crowded bathrooms. The ocean is close and the beach is nice with good views.

Just got back from a 3 night camping trip to Cape Lookout. I was very impressed with the park. we picked a spot that was super close to the beach so it was a short walk which was great. Being the first week in June, and not so great weather, there werent a lot of people, especially in the section we were camping in, so it was nice and peaceful. I was very impressed with the friendliness of the park rangers, they were great. i was also impressed with the showers and how clean they were. We loved it and will be back for sure!!

So while the cabins are technically part of the campground and the state park, they are off in a section set back from the beach/bbq area.

When we reserved our cabin online, we were a little confused because there wasn't a ton of information and Oregon has so many State Parks on the coast (which all of them seem to be awesome, by the way!!!). Well we booked Netarts cabin for one night and wished we had booked it for many more. The cabin has 2 rooms and a bathroom.

You walk in and the main living area consists of a futon (to your immediate left), table and 2 chairs (to your immediate right), a t.v. and VCR (possibly DVD player, on this part I am unsure) left in the corner hidden away in an armoire, which I can only assume is for rainy days and to keep the kids entertained. On your right almost across from the door is a fridge, sink and cabinets. I recall there being running water. There is a propane grill outside on the porch, it's not huge but will be hand for up to 4 or 5 people. This grill is well made and has a ignition that works so you don't need a long lighter.

The bedroom has some shelving on the left, and there is a bunk bed with a full bed on bottom and single up top. There are windows throughout. Off of the bedroom (to the right from the front door) is the bathroom. It has a nice shower (no tub) and industrial toilet. The whole unit would be fine for someone with a wheelchair or even an older person. Parking is less than 30 seconds away for a person with no limitations, and only a few minutes for a senior with mobility issues. They had no carts to move our stuff in, but even still it didn't take long and we brought a lot of stuff in. You will need to bring your own sleeping bags, pillows, etc. The units are a minute or two from the day use bbq area and frankly these are the nicest cabins I have ever seen at a state park. I bet they book up quickly. The Yurts in Oregon State Parks are awesome as well, but having your own bathroom and shower as well as fridge and faucet make these amazing. Oh, outside you have a picnic table and fire ring. Netarts cabin is a little close to the nearest cabin but it didn't bother us at all.

We got rained out and had to leave a day early, so choose your site carefully. If it rains and you have one of the dirt campsites as opposed to the grass, you'll be swimming in mud! Close to the beach and it was beautiful on the nice day. Saw a pod of whales swimming around. Was very busy and a lot of traffic drove by our site (C27) but was a nice place. I preferred Cape Disappointment, but would go back to Cape Lookout again with better weather!

Bathrooms were a little bit of a trek from the campsite and we could hear cars throughout the night so I think the main road wasn't that far behind where we were camping.

Nice place though, would recommend.

My husband and I stayed on night here with our boxer. For looking so open, I would agree with other reviews that you have privacy. We booked last minute, so I assumed our spot would be the one no one wanted. Maybe it was, but I thought it was fine. B19 was our spot. The dense shrubbery around our site gave us quite a bit of privacy. There was so many kids riding on their bikes. So many people in general. I guess it was FULL, but you are very aware of how many our there. The washrooms were kinda stinky and damp, you know. There was just so much traffic using them, even if they cleaned them regularly they'd probably still be kinda gross. Didn't use the showers. The beach is exactly how others described. Very easy access to it and you walk over a hump to the beach and it's that beautiful white powder that oregon has. But if the tides in, it would suck, cause there is a lot of huge rocks, THEN powder, but nothing if tide was in. The tide was out when we went, so it was fabulous. I just like Nehalem State park alot more for privacy and beach.

We loved it. I agree with other reviewers some campsites are kind of open and not private and some are very private. Our inlaws were right on the corner of D loop and it was a main thorough fare to get to the beach. Lot's of people, some nice, some annoying. We were right next door and we were very secluded with bushes all around and an awesome space for our son to set up his tent (we were in a small trailer). The best and worst spaces are tent sites. Some of them were beautiful and very private, some open to the whole camp. Otherwise a great campground, great beach, great staff, great time. We will definitely go back.
