Things to Know Before Visiting
Cape Lookout offers hiking trails to suit tree-lovers and beachcombers alike. You can choose a shorter nature trail, complete with numbered markers (have your trail guide handy!), or something a little longer. Several trails take you through lush, coastal forest filled with Sitka spruce, ferns and more. Or you can walk along the 3-mile beach that runs from the Netarts sand spit to the base of Cape Lookout.
If you decide to walk along the beach, be sure to check the tide tables; parts of the beach disappear at high tide. Learn more about visiting Cape Lookout State Park.
A Gift That Keeps On Giving
Cape Lookout State Park began with a gift of 975 acres from the U.S. Lighthouse Service. The park continued to grow until 1988.
Originally, this park was kept pristine as a nature preserve, though a picnic area and trail were soon added.
A campground began welcoming visitors in the 1950s. In the 1960s, a road was built from Netarts Bay to Sand Lake to make it easier for folks to get to the trail head.
