Cape Lookout State Park
Cape Lookout was one of the highlights of our trip to the Oregon coast. The 4.8 mile round trip trek to the lookout offers outstanding views, you can access a beautiful rocky beach from the state park entrance 3 miles before you reach the trailhead. Between the two is a turnout with views of the ocean on the left, and Netarys bay on your right. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a hang glider taking off as well.
Great Camping Spot on the Oregon Coast
I spent 3 days recently at Cape Lookout State Park. The tent camping spot was great, with bushes and trees on 3 sides. The campground was full but didn't ever feel crowded. Easy access to wonderful Oregon coast beach and forest hiking, as well as local stores if needed (including delicious Tillamook ice cream). Bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner; one toilet in the nearest bath-house was out of commission the whole time I was there. This was the second time I've camped at Cape Lookout, and I would definitely go there again.
Great campground near the beach
Just stayed at Cape Lookout this week and we loved it! We stayed in Loop C at site C25. The site was one of the few set amongst trees so there was a little more privacy than other sites. It was located near two clean bathrooms with showers and hot water. We could hear the ocean from our site and it was a short walk to a gorgeous sandy beach! Our 6 year old had a great time playing on the beach. There was firewood for sale. A great area to hike and see other attractions along the coast. We will definitely return.
Great Views the Whole way
We took the cape lookout loop (4.8) miles and had amazing views almost the entire hike. There are a lot of tree roots the second half of the hike (something to watch out for ). We did encounter a few snakes (although very small) but still something to watch out for!
Beachside (almost) camping
We are fans of Oregon State Parks' deluxe cabins, so reserved the Netarts cabin. It's smaller than some and has the usual amenities: fridge, toilet/shower, microwave, (no stove), bunk bed, futon, table, chairs, electricity (lots of outlets), outdoor grill, and NO cell/Internet/TV. It's surrounded by coastal forest & has an ocean view through the trees. The park is well-maintained and a very short distance to the beach, If you are mobility limited, you'll want to consider this: guests cannot drive to their cabins. You will park in a lot and tote your stuff (cart provided) along a dirt path. Meares cabin has a handicap ramp; the other five don't.
