We've stayed in a lot of parks over the past many years, and this ranks as one of the best. Huge private feeling spaces and absolutely breathtaking location.
We may be a bit biased, as we 'lived' here for 6 weeks as we were volunteer lighthouse hosts at this location. We did get one of the host spots, but we didn't notice a bad spot in the entire campground. Heck, the 'worst' spots were better than some of the 'best' spots even in other state parks we love. Some even have a peak of an ocean view (the ones just past the cabins).
There are many beautiful hiking trails here, beach access, coastal views, amazing sunsets and tours of the lighthouse and Hughes house.
All site are on a first come first serve basis, which is a unique feature. As such, definitely recommend arriving by early afternoon if you want to snag a site during peak seasons. Even into mid-October, the campground was nearing capacity.. and into late September it was completely filling up every night by late afternoon.
Be prepared coming in - the dump station is indefinitely out of order, and all non-host spots are electric/water only. It is very tempting to keep extending your stay here!
While were here, Verizon turned on LTE service up in Port Orford, and with a booster we were able to use it at our site. AT&T also has HSPA+ (4G), and it is usable with a booster within the campground. If you need to make a call, go down to the overlook along the beach & coastal trail within the campground... or what many of us came to call ... 'the phone booth'. Strong signal there, and along any of the cliffside paths, or out at the lighthouse.
Rate below is the in season rate, it drops to $16/night from Oct - April.
