Humbug Mountain State Park is a beautiful spot on the southern Oregon coast. The park is centered around the 1,765-foot tall Humbug Mountain, which rises dramatically right from the Pacific Ocean.

  • The park has a 5.5-mile hiking trail that leads to the summit, offering stunning south-facing views of the coastline.
  • The Oregon Coast Trail also passes through the park, giving visitors access to more hiking opportunities.
  • The park's campground is surrounded by forested hills and enjoys a relatively mild climate compared to other parts of the Oregon coast.
  • This makes it a popular spot for camping and exploring the area. The beach accessible from the campsite is dog-friendly, so it's a great spot to bring your furry friends.

Just outside the park, the town of Port Orford is worth a visit. It's a quaint coastal town with a nice selection of shops, restaurants, and art galleries.

  • You can also check out the historic Battle Rock in Port Orford, which has cultural and geological significance.
