Absolutely Stunning!

This might be one of our favorite state parks along the coast of Oregon. Just a short detour off the Coastal Highway, this park offers some spectacular views, tons of nautical navigation history as well as a lovely campground tucked into the trees. 

Like many state parks the campsites are extremely orderly, sparkling clean, reservable and offer electrical service.  We typically run exclusively on solar, but it was hard to do with a completely tree covered campground.  We appreciated the electrical hook-ups here.  Fresh water spigots are scattered throughout the campground, and a dump station will help you empty before getting back on the road.  The bath houses are clean, large, and lovely with flush toilets and hot showers.

We rarely make reservations, but we found a couple open sites in the middle of the week. Registration with the very helpful camp hosts was easy. We had to move sites a couple of times to make our desired stay work out, but that’s the price you pay for not reserving. 

There are plenty of recreational options nearby, including hiking, beach combing, horse trails and paddling. This part of the Oregon Pacific coast is unprotected so the ocean can be pretty rough for kayaking, but the nearby river might offer a more protected space to explore by kayak, canoe or paddleboard.   And, a hike out to the lighthouse at sunset is epic!

Nearby towns along the coastal highway will offer a quick resupply for groceries and gas but the nearest town is Port Orford about 20 minutes away. It doesn’t offer much more than a convenience store and Dollar General. So, plan ahead.
