Cape Lookout State Park

Hwy 101 mile marker 65b.
Cape Lookout can be reached by taking Hwy 131 out of Tillamook. You can also reach it by a considerably longer route by taking the right turn at the Three Capes Loop sign.
The main park entrance leads you to a long beach bound by a cliff on the north. To the south, you are afforded a several mile walk along the "spit" that borders Netarts Bay.
The main park has camping areas, yurts, and cabins.
If you drive by the main park entrance, in about a mile you will come to the trailhead entrance. This leads to several trails. The South trail is a loop high above the surrounding ocean, with many excellent views. Another trail (a left turn about 100 ft into the South Trail) leads to a "vertical" descent down to another beach.

Site Resources: 35 full-hookup sites, 170 tent sites, 1 electrical site, 13 yurts, 6 deluxe cabins, 2 group tent camping areas, group pavilion in view of the ocean, showers, restrooms
