Cape Blanco State Park


Campground Description:  Cape Blanco State Park is owned and operated by the State of Oregon.  Cape Blanco offers much more than the campground itself.  While at Cape Blanco State Park take time to enjoy the lighthouse and historic Hughes House tours, hike over 8 miles of family friendly trails, enjoy viewing the local wildlife and, perhaps best of all, enjoy the sweeping views of the Oregon coastline.  There are camping accommodations to fit everyone's particular camping style: tent camping, RV camping, biker and hiker camping, group camping, cabin camping, yurt camping and even horse camping.  Food and services are available in the town of Port Orford.  The campground is open year round but the lighthouse and the Hughes House are open April 1 until October 31 each year.  Reservations are available.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds.  The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site.  Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide.  Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping.  If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners.  In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased.  Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping.  While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
