The Port Orford Lifeboat Station was constructed in 1934 by the Coast Guard to provide lifesaving service to the southern portion of the Oregon Coast until 1970. A museum, operated by the Point Orford Heritage Society, is now housed in the station. The museum is free (donations accepted, of course), and is open April-October, Thursday-Monday, 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m. A 36-foot motor lifeboat used at this station is on the premises and waiting to be restored. The park has excellent hiking trails on the headlands affording spectacular views up and down the Pacific Coast. There's a large resident blacktail deer population; please treat them as the wild animals they are.

Super windy. expect it. Lots of nice benches to take a pause and view the scenery. take along the 300mm lens for excellent landscape shots. Dogs allowed on leashes and they provide poop bags. fun museum area. I will come again.

beautiful! I live 3/4 of a mile from here! I like the trail next to the one you guys suggest/post! It's not a long hike, and the view is spectacular! moderate to difficult hike. I went off grid a bit, and if you do, be careful! There is history here and a secluded trail which I hope to post later (it goes down to where the coast guard used to dock there boats!

Amazing views. Easy hike for me and hubby with 30lbs of toddler on our backs. Not too steep and all drop offs were fenced nicely. Nice museum and history at the trailhead closed Monday and Tuesday's.
