The campground at Cape Blanco State Park is one of the smaller state park campgrounds along Oregon's magnificent coast. It is tucked deep in the coastal forest with only distant and obstructed views of the ocean, but given the fierce storms that can attack this most-westerly point in Oregon, the shelter is to be appreciated. 

The campground is built around just one loop road. All the standard sites have electric and water hookups, and there is much privacy for most sites in the thick vegetation. Some sites are suitable for fairly large vehicles.There is a hiker/biker camping area, a nice horse camping area with six corrals, a group camp and four cabins. There is one central bathroom with showers. From the campground, it is about a 1-mile walk along a segment of the Oregon Coast Trail to the lighthouse and about a half-mile walk down a dirt road to the beach. Whales are frequently seen along this coast, and there is a year-round population of gray whales that stay in the Port Orford area just a few miles south. Port Orford itself offers most civilized amenities for campers.

Note: Standard campsites are first-come, first-served only, but cabins, the group site and the horse sites are reservable.
