What's better than pitching a tent between the protection of towering cliffs and windswept dunes? What's better than walking along an unspoiled...
Gorgeous campground. Three loops with bathrooms in the center. One has showers, all great quality. The roads are paved and very smooth. Campground has quite hours that seem to be taken very seriously - it was eerily quiet at 9pm which was nice, except for being worried that our kids might be too loud if they didn't fall asleep! Fire ring and picnic table at each site. Yurts available as well. A wonderful flower garden and lighthouse are nearby as well as the Sunset Bay beach. The plant life makes it feel very tropical and unique.

Hike and bike in on the back side of loop C.
The day use has hoop and volleyball courts
Large picnicking area next to the Bay. The Hiking trails are along the coast line and one goes all the way to Shore Acres which I will tell you about later. The Hosts are great .

Report from your shirtless host on Holiday lights at Shore Acres S.P.
I just got back from the lights watch runs from Thanksgiving to New Years Eve. The lights started back in 1987 by the friends of Shore Acres. They decided to string a few lights that year about 6000 total. Now it is up to over 400000 lights. 26 large Christmas trees at least 15 to 20 large landscapes lights. Dozens of small L.S. light. The moving light were awesome to see. They get 40 to 50000+ visitors a year each season. They come from every State and other countries. Enjoy refreshments in the garden house. It takes about 1500 volunteers they start decorations in min Oct. It takes 6 weeks to get done.
Thanks you friends of Shore Acres and Volunteers
Report from your Shirtless Host on Whale watching at the cape
Iam the Host at Sunset Bay S.P. and I have been enjoying Whale watching now for about 3 weeks now. Now is a good time for Whale watching the weather is getting better (. Not good but better ) I have seen about 100 whales in the past month or so. The bad weather has kept them off shore aways but you can still see them off shore.
As the weather starts to break the whales are getting closer to shore. There heading South to give Birth then back to Alaska. So if you miss them going you can catch them coming back .
Hope to see you at Sunset Bay S.P.

The land for the park was obtained between 1948 and 1984. The original tract, including the bay front, was given to the state by Coos County in 1948. Ralph Barker gave a water supply location in 1954. Later tracts were acquired by a grant from the Bureau of Land Management, and by purchase, litigation and exchange with private owners.
