The Port Orford Lifeboat Station was constructed in 1934 by the Coast Guard to provide lifesaving service to the southern portion of the Oregon Coast until 1970. A museum, operated by the Cape Blanco Heritage Society, is now housed in the station. The museum is free (donations accepted, of course). A 36-foot motor lifeboat used at this station is on the premises and waiting to be restored. The museum is open Wednesday – Monday 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
The park has excellent hiking trails on the headlands affording spectacular views up and down the Pacific Coast.
There's a large resident blacktail deer population; please treat them as the wild animals they are.
