Sites closer to the water (like #13-15) are more private and secluded from the roadway. Hiking trails start from the campground, which is just off the highway. The visitor center is a short drive, hike or bike away. Beautiful coastal spot!

Loved this campground. Very quiet, only hearing the sounds of the creek and wind in trees all day and night. Somewhat expensive for a spot without any hookups ($26/night) but was a great stay. Does not have cell service there, but you can get Verizon service at the Cape Perpetua Visitors Center just up the road, or by using one of the trails from the ground (0.2 miles to visitor center). They have many trails leaving the campground and many in the area. Great spot to stay.

Simple and beautiful. Only a short hike to Thor’s Well on the coast.

If Cape Perpetua is full, head 7 miles south to Rock Creek campground. It is run by the USDA and its a great alternative spot.

Trail hiking, beach bumming, sight seeing - do it all at this gorgeous Oregon coast spot. There isn't a bad view in the sight and tons of activities to choose from - good luck trying to fit them all in!

I stopped here for the first night of traveling down the southern Oregon coast in late August, and it was a nice place. I reserved online for $35. This was so nice to know that I had a spot reserved. The fog hung right on the coast but made a nice evening with a campfire and smores. Some of the campsites have little privacy, but site 15 has a nice trail that puts it secluded in a small clearing. (plus it is nearby to water and bathrooms) I did not get a chance to hike the trails nearby, but for my car camping trip this was perfect!

Campsites are a little close together but the incredible coastline and fabulous sites within easy hiking distance more than make up for it. Several campsites are more hidden off the road with thick vegetation providing privacy and a lovely river rushing by. Lots of well maintained trails for all levels of expertise and incredible coastline. Thor's well was by far my favorite.

The Cape Perpetua area is one of my favorite places on the planet. There are choices for easy or challenging hikes. Exploring Cook's Chasm, Spouting Horn, Devil's Churn, and Thor's Well at high tide will get your heart pumping with the power of the ocean.
