Humbug Mountain State Park
Campground Description: Humbug Mountain State Park is owned and operated by the State of Oregon. Humbug Mountain is likely the warmest costal State Park due to the unique topography. Humbug Mountain shelters the campground from the ocean breezes and fog. The warm weather is especially conducive to tent camping, although RV campers will benefit as well. Activities include hiking, beach combing, wildlife viewing, ocean windsurfing, freshwater wading, and relaxing on a lawn chair. Hot showers and flush toilets are available as are evening programs at the amphitheater (summer months). A park host is located within the park. Although Humbug Mountain State Park is located on the east side of Highway 101, there is beach access without crossing the highway via a well marked path that crosses under the highway. The nearest restaurants and services is available in Port Orford, 6.6 miles north on Highway 101. Open year round. Reservations are possible.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do not allow tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we insure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tents and all types of RV campers. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
