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.

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.
