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. Work off your picnic lunch by hiking over eight miles of trails with many spectacular ocean vistas, woodland and wetland settings. Bring your horse and enjoy 7 miles of horse trails and the facilities in our horse camp. The group camp holds a maximum of 50 people, and can accomodate up to 24 vehicles. This total may include five or more self-contained RVs. If you expect to have more than five RVs or 24 total vehicles, call the park. 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.

Very enjoyable hike i found by accident while looking in cape Blanco for other hikes to do. Glad i found it and would do it again and add a few miles to it. My lab, Brook, enjoyed seeing those little wooly critters for the 1st time. She sees elk and deer on a regular basis but the 1st time seeing sheep on a trail. met and talked to a nice couple on the trail as well.

Nice little trail that leads to awesome views of Pt Blanco as well as to the north.

Interesting trail which opens up into views of the mouth of the Sixes River which I hiked earlier in the day. Brook, my lab, saw sheep for the second time today and she really wanted to run with them but didn't with my command not to. Nice little trail that the signage on Cape Blanco road disappeared since the last time I was here.

Drove by and saw a pull out area and then saw a trail head complete with signage so I had to do it... The trail is sparse and obvious that it's been a long time since anyone has traveled it... Hopefully there was more to it at some point but who knows. Simply another don't bother but who knows it could have been an awesome trail....... never know if you don't set shoes on the it.

I do quite a few very good horse trails so i figured....why not? The horse camp here is awesome the way it is laid out. When I saw only one campsite occupied I should've figured it out. There are plenty of options but the one I chose isn't even a very good trail for horses. Another trail today that only my dog enjoyed. Don't bother.....

Cool lighthouse.

Way too windy and not as pleasant as it should have been. Beautiful place with incredible views.

Maybe 3.5.... Nice little walk open at first then goes into the trees and then comes back out again to an overlook with an awesome view. Incredible looking back at the lighthouse and as usual for the area very windy.

Nice views... Did several other little trails as well.

Neat park , some history, some views ,some coast line .. camp ground was very nice , and all the trails in the area are fun , or the miles of sandy beach line and rocky coves to explore was really cool .. another Oregon coast gem ..
