General Information

Description - Cape Sebastian ... the very name invokes images of early Spanish explorers and long journeys. The cape was named in honor of Saint San Sebastian in 1603 by the Spanish navigator Sebastian Vizcaino.

Attractions - The most striking features of this park are its two parking vistas. The parking lots are over 200 feet above sea level. At the south parking vista, you can see up to 43 miles to the north with Humbug Mountain filling the view. Looking south, you can see nearly 50 miles toward Crescent City, California and Point Saint George Lighthouse.

A deep forest of Sitka spruce covers most of the park and a 1.5 mile walking trail takes you out to the cape. If you're lucky, the trail will give you a chance to enjoy awe-inspiring views of the gray whales on their migration.

Vital stats: This park has no drinking water. There is no fee to use this park. For information, call 1-800-551-6949.

Recreation - Cape Sebastian offers beach access and opportunities for walking, fishing, viewing scenery, viewing wildlife and marine mammals, bird watching, interpretive tours, and viewing interpretive signs.

Climate - The Oregon coast receives abundant rainfall, mostly between October and April. July and August bring the best chance for clear days. Summer temperatures are normally moderate and almost never hot. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent.

Location - Cape Sebastian is located on Oregon's South Coast, off US Highway 101, seven miles south of Gold Beach.
