Washburne is located on the east side of Highway 101 with a buffer of native plants between you and the highway. The campsites are spacious. There are several trails of varying difficulty leading from the campsites to the beach, wildlife viewing areas, and second-growth forests.

A walking trail leads you under the highway to a five-mile sandy beach and a day-use area, where you'll find space to watch whales, hunt agates, beachcomb, and picnic. Another trail connects you to the Heceta Head trail, which you can use to reach the historic Heceta Head lighthouse (check the Heceta Head Lighthouse web page for information on tours).

In the campground at night, you can hear the pounding surf. There is a creek running through the campground, and elk have been known to wander through. Wild rhododendrons bloom in spring.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
January 28 Love this park! by The Rasmussens
This is on of my favorite camping spots in Oregon and the best State Park. So close to the ocean and the hiking trails are amazing! I love that I cant be bothered by my phone due to the poor cell reception. Anyone who complains about the lack of satellite reception due to the huge trees needs to move to eastern oregon. This place is the best!!
April 30 No cell reception
This is a very nice park. Heavily forested, well laid out. 2 sets of showers/toilets, one at each end of the park. Zero cell reception (the pay phone has been broken for over a year) and very difficult to get satellite TV reception due to the many trees. Park is well maintained as most Oregon parks are. The hiking trails are great, especially the one to the lighthouse.
June 3 My Favorite beach for agates by wishiwasretired
This beach is usually pretty free of people and we seem to always find nice agates, jasper and jade whenever we go at low tide. I love to walk this beach and picnic at the nice tables at the day use area. Restrooms are clean and well kept also.
