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 lighthouse tour, managed by the Bureau of Land Management, costs $2/adult, $1 youth under 12, or $5/family. The Hughes House tour is conducted by knowledgeable volunteers and is free, but donations are gratefully accepted and help fund restoration and maintenance of the house.

The rest of the park, including the campground, is open year-round.

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.

The first-order lens was replaced with a second-order lens in 1936.

April 4 One of the best kept secrets in Oregon! by Go Navy
If you love the Oregon Coast... blustry days, long walks on the beach, amazing scenery, and oh yeah, lighthouses, then this is the place for you. My family visited a couple years ago and we were stunned by the natural beauty. We drove (our four wheel drive) right down to the beach, and walked along the waters edge as the sun sank into the great Pacific Ocean... One of the best memories of camping I have. The weather is typical Oregon Coastal weather. If you can get past that, you will not second guess your visit to this beautiful park!
July 10 great camp sites
a haven for those that crave privacy in camp and lack of crowding and children. first come, first served. abundance of deer, fox, weasel, bunnies, chipmunks and the like. many sites have folliage on 3 sides providing privacy and wind barriers.
