Cape Blanco Heritage Society

Cape Blanco is the most southern of Oregon's lighthouses, 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.
Hike over eight miles of trails with many spectacular ocean vistas, woodland settings. Bring your horse and enjoy 7 miles of horse trails and the updated facilities in our horse camp. In early 2018 Oregon state Parks partnered with Oregon Equestrian trails to remove eight old and failing wood corrals and replace then with twelve new pipe corrals. These corrals are available on a first come first serve basis for Cape Blanco horse campers. Overflow horses can be trailer tied or portable corrals used. Oregon State Parks will monitor the situation and work with our partners to make sure we are maximizing the use of the corrals. Thanks to Oregon Equestrian Trails Group and specifically Roseburg chapter for helping improve the service to our equestrian users. 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. If you expect to have more than five RVs or 24 total vehicles, call the park office 541-332-6774. 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. And for our coastal hiker and Bike enthusiast enjoy our updated hiker/biker facilities.
No matter how you camp with us, finish the day with a Sunset.
