Cape Lookout state park camping can be reached by traveling an hour and a half west of Portland through the scenic Wilson River pass. Along the way stop and enjoy waterfalls, scenic views and some great fishing. A popular campground and day-use area, Cape Lookout Campground is located on a sand spit between Netarts Bay and the ocean, giving you a terrific view of the ocean with convenient access to the beach.
One of the best beach in Oregon.
Loved camping at cape lookout. Walk to the beach is hard to beat. Well kept sites. Got drenched one day but a beauty when the sun came out.
This campground is one of my top five faves. Right behind the dunes, bathroom with showers, shady spots and sunny spots, just right for any season. Yurts and cabins - you’ll be able to book if you’re fast enough. It’s an always booked out gem at the pacific coast!
Great for hiking!!! Beautiful views!
When we Stayed: Early December, Wednesday-Friday
Overall Experience: secluded cabins made for a private, relaxing trip.
Cabins: there is a group of cabins away from the main campground so they're quiet and private. We had a shower, toilet and kitchenette. The parking lot is a bit of a walk from the cabins but they provide wheelbarrows to haul your stuff up to the cabin.
Location: a quick walk down to the beach and easy hiking trails in the woods. The cabins were up on a bluff in the woods so you could just barely see the ocean through the trees.
Good yurt I got to share with my dog
Went tent camping here in summer just for the hike out on cape Lookout. Made in with two kids and dog in about two hours and did some whale watching for about 20-30 mins. The views are spectacular from the Cape. We would definitely hike/camp here again as it was great location for some peace and adventure.
excellent place to camp. newer restroom and sinks and plenty of beach access. make sure you dress for cold weather, even in August it gets cold at night.
I’m used to private spaces in the trees instead of seeing everything everyone around me is doing. I imagined waking up to the sound of waves, and not a baby crying. I imagined relaxing on a beach instead of hanging with 100 other people at sunset. But, the facilities were clean and despite having no privacy it was a welcome getaway. We wouldn’t do it again…
We stayed in zone A, which made for a fast and easy walk to the beach. The beach itself was beautiful- soft sand, long stretches in either direction. Not incredibly crowded or busy, which was great considering it was midsummer.
