More on Oregon Campgrounds and Travel
From Oregon State Parks: Cape Blanco is the most southern of Oregon's lights, and is the westernmost point in Oregon. Proposed in 1864, it was the first lighthouse in the state outfitted with a first-order Fresnel lens in 1870.
Use our extra-large, private, sheltered campsites as your base of operations while you enjoy the lighthouse and historic Hughes House tours. The lighthouse and historic home are open from April to October. The rest of the park, including the campground, is open year-round. All campsites are first-come, first-served.
The group camp holds a maximum of 50 people, and can accommodate up to 24 vehicles. This total may include five or more self-contained RVs. The group camp has four fire rings, four picnic tables, four water spigots and vault toilets. Showers are located in main campground 1/4 mi. away. No matter how you camp with us, don't forget a sunset walk along the headland beaches to finish out your day.
NOTE: The dump station is out of service until further notice. The nearest RV waste dump station is at the Chevron in Port Orford (they charge $3 for the service).
