Great spot love camping in the Tillamook Oregon this camp site is very nice and well keep

The camp spots are good nice and clean but u better show up Thursday to get a good spot

Kid-Friendly with lots to do near Mt. St. Helens

Well situated. Just off I-5, about 10 miles from the Mt. St. Helens Visitor Center and about an hour north of Portland, Oregon. Lots to do, especially for kids. There's a swimming pool, basketball court, huge playground, volleyball, disc golf course, picnic table areas and woods to run in.

Everything is fairly well maintained, but like HBO's Westwood's park, it gets stranger the further you get from the center of the park. Off on the edges the spots get more weedy, there's a railroad track on one side and the freeway on the other. But stay to the middle and everything is very well maintained and fun.

A bit more expensive than other more run down spots in the area ($43 or so), but in general worth it for its nice location and amenities.

Tips: not all spots have fire pits, so if that's important to you, be sure to ask for one.

Nice peaceful spot!

Oregon really doesn’t have bad campgrounds. It was raining while we were here but it’s a beautiful spot and if you’ve got an RV who cares about the rain! I really like the spots towards the back that back up to the trees and the Necanium River. They even have onsite laundry facilities and clean bathrooms/showers.

Cannon Beach Glamping

This is a really nice RV Resort right in the middle of Cannon Beach. You almost don’t feel like you’re camping. With an indoor pool, jungle gym for kids, basketball court and of course the beach down the street what more could you want. Safe, clean and a beautiful area to be in.

Great location!

For a place right in Cannon Beach this place is great. Clean and green. Beautiful landscape and you could easily walk or ride a bike to the beach a few blocks away. The spaces are a bit small so I’m not sure you’d want to bring an RV here but for tent ⛺️ it’s definitely a nice spot.

Friendly, Basic, But Mostly Long-Timers

On maps this is sometimes called Paradise Resort & RV Park, but if it's an RV Park with "paradise" in the name and you're in Castle Rock, Washington, you're in the right place.

Just off the freeway. Mostly full-timers. There's a store there with the basics, plus laundry machines, showers etc. No frills. Friendly enough staff and people who live there. Full hook-ups. Sites are nothing to write home about. They take overnight bookings for about $32 a night.

If you have kids and/or want more facilities, head across the freeway to Toutle River RV Park. Otherwise this place is fine.

What a great KOA

We really love KOAs. This KOA is the best. It’s perfect for families because they have tons of lot of activities. The indoor pool was very clean and we enjoyed it several days. The kids played on the playgrounds and even our pup was happy with the trail walks. We visited Fort Stevens and the shipwreck on the beach and had so much fun doing it.

Beautiful State park

We camped here in the summer and really enjoyed it, because it’s beautiful. Pacific Northwest is full of these beauties. The whole campground is full of trees. All well spaced out sites with room to stretch out. Serene and quiet while still being conveniently located close main road.

Small Campground With Some Spots Better Than Others

With just seven campsites, I liked the feeling of seclusion you might get similar to the dispersed sites further down the road, while still having a relatively clean pit toilet and garbage available. Kind of the best of both worlds. I also liked that it was $15 (vs the $20 of Henry Rierson nearby). It's first-come, first-served, and sites really do matter, so it's worth looking around or coming early or before the weekend to make sure you get a good one. Site #1 is literally a small turn-out on the road and worth avoiding, while other sites (like 4/5/6) are much larger, more secluded, and on the water. Sites 5 and 6 are also perfect if you have a group and want to share/go back and forth between the two sites. Site #7 is another one that's right on the parking lot and fairly small and worth avoiding if possible. I'd probably give this one a 3.5 star rating since the larger sites are nice, but not a ton to do other than hang out in/by the river.

Family Friendly and Close to Portland

Clean, nice, semi-wooded campground with plenty of water to play in and places to run around for kids. Sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and there were still a few sites available when we arrived early-ish (10 am or so) on a Saturday in June. There are both tent and RV sites on both sides of the road. The river-side has more camp sites and some are practically right on the river. There's also a smaller creek that runs through the campground that feeds into the larger, wade-able river. While I had read tons of great reviews, I think my experience overall was more "meh." Yes, the sites are pretty, clean, and the river is lovely, but it seemed a little crowed or at least that the sites were too on top of each other (though I may just being extra picky with so many other amazing campsites in Oregon). I also wasn't thrilled with the road running through the campground. With mostly pit toilets (one flush one) and no showers, I thought the $20 per night fee was slightly expensive when there were other primitive sites down the road a bit for free. Overall, worth trying one more time due to its proximity to Portland.

Lake views

Very cute campground with great views of the lake. Comfortable, clean and spacious sites. Lots of options for your stay: motel, RV and tents. Kayak rentals for a fun day on the lake.

#pnw

Beautiful Pacific Northwest campground in a canopy of trees. Very peaceful and green campground with well spaced out sites. Some loops are hard to drive through with anything bigger than a car. Just off the highway but without the noise.

Hilltop KOA

This KOA feels a bit like a parking lot. It’s nice to have cable/internet but not with the feeling of paying for parking. I would much rather be somewhere with a better view and not on top of the people next to me.

So cool

We stayed here and felt like it was so cool. The campground is clean, plenty of space and there was lots of historic spots to checkout. We didn’t have cell service the whole week. We had lots of bugs and fog but it’s Oregon and kinda typical lol the kids really enjoyed it and then walking the beach to check out the shipwreck too

KOA Luxury

This is a great KOA…probably the best I’ve been to. It’s very big with a lot of activity options including an indoor pool, playground and trails. Fort Stevens is right across the street and has a lot of great day activities as well. Very clean and spread out with different options for your camping experience including cabins. Cable and internet are definitely a plus!

Adventure Awaits!

Such a great place to stay on the Oregon coast! I love this campground because it’s on the coast, very beautiful and spacious. Great sites around to see including the mouth of the Columbia River. Spacious sites you can reserve and electric/water etc. There is even an area for hiker and bikers. You’re close to Astoria, Gearhart, Cannon Beach and Portland is only an hour and a half away.

Great classic state park camping!

There are two excellent lighthouses, Waikiki beach, and the north jetti of the Columbia to explore. The longer distance to awesome northern Oregon beaches isn't that bad, and there's the Longbeaxh area near by to check out as well! The little shop near the ranger station has ice cream, and I hear the local pizza place will deliver to your tent for $$$. If you have never tried them before, the yurts are worth it.

Good

Primitive, but adequate.

Good beach!

This spot gives great beach views. We will definitely be coming back next summer. It’s clean and well kept. The spots are big enough for us too

Ended up going during International Kite Festival!

Wow! This place was one of our favorite spots in WA. The beach access is located very close. The beach is clean and lots of fun smaller cliffs to climb on. The International Kite Festival was in town couple miles up so we walked the beach to it few days while staying. There’s a great boardwalk too if you struggle with walking on beach. The town has a array of boutiques, stores, restaurants and places just to mingle. We will definitely be coming back to this campground next year.

Great family fun!

This spot is was amazing with the family. The RV spots are a tad close to each other with not much landscaping but that’s to be expected with coastal campgrounds mostly. There was a lot of the kids to do, too. We all thought it was fun.

Nice secluded campsites

These sites are nice and secluded. Most are like little wooded coves. The tent sites were small, but good for a 4-6 persom tent. The restrooms are clean and have showers. The city of Westport was charming and not a far drive.

Great family campground

Large campground with RV sites, tent camping area, and cabins. There is a clubhouse with a pool, board games, and movies. They also have a swing set, horseshoes, beach volleyball, and mini golf. Neighbors were friendly and it was quite at night. There is also a laundry facility and we like to go to Long Beach and Astoria nearby for the markets on the weekend.

Convenience Best Trait

Out of Morrison Eddy, Henry Rierson Spruce Run, Nehalem Falls and Cook Creek, Beaver Eddy should probably be the last campground on your list. There are a couple of nice sites, with an open feel and parking area, and a good hike possibility with Cougar Mountain Road across a nearby bridge. And the water and forest views are smile-inducing. But the road is incredibly adjacent, privacy does not receive good overall marks here and there are still inconsistencies about whether it’s open or not at any given time due to nearby logging.

Cozy Squared

You walk down about three city blocks to this penisular oasis, where you’re treated to tall trees, a nice variety of sites and plenty of beautific water scenes. A marvelous tucked-away vibe with greatly reduced traffic considerations. It looked like 3-4 camping parties would be VERY comfortable where the campsites are grouped together a little away from the others, with shade and decent water frontage. Didn’t notice any major trails from the campground, but if there were this would be in the 4-5 star home on the range.

Perfect Nature Campground

If you are looking for a cammpground that is not large and crowded and is what they used to be like, then this is for you. This privately owned campground has full hookups and tent sites. It has clean showers and restrooms, a rec room, and laundry. There is a tank dump and propane. You also have a bar/restaurant next door. There are 20 acres with trails that take you along a creek and a thick forest that includes wild berries. This is a welcome escape from the crazy world and crowded campgrounds.

Oregon State Park at its finest

Fort Stevens State Park in Warrenton, OR is a clean and well maintained park for all levels of camping from tents to large RV’s. They even have Yurts, many which are pet friendly. There are many miles of hiking/biking trails through forest and beaches. The old fort is fun to visit . For those wanting to explore further, there is Astoria to the north and Seadide and Cannon Beach to the south. I highly recommend a visit.

Campground near Mt. Saint Helen's

This is a campground on one of the roads leading to Mt. Saint Helen's. It was a decent sized campground with RV spots, tent spots, group spots, and walk-in spots. It had a huge playground area as well as a day use site with covered shelters within the park. The visitor center was a short 1 mile walk from the campground that had an under road tunnel leading under the highway. From the visitor center here was an additional path through the marsh with views of Mt. Saint Helen's, or at least I think there are views the smoke was so thick we could not see the mountain. At night the campground had a great Junior Ranger program with a very enthusiastic park ranger that kept the almost 50 people/kids entertained. She was great at engaging all the kids and teaching them about the park, highly recommend this for anyone bringing kids. For being completely full the nights we were there it was pretty quiet with only the occasional noise coming from the nearby highway.

We stayed in the group site, spot 60/61. Since we booked the group site we were required to book both of the spots at the same time. It was the smallest group site I have ever seen. There was barely room for the 3 tents we set up and originally we would have had almost 6, which would not have fit in this spot. There were 2 large tables as well as 2 fire pits, however 1 fire pit was inches away from the bushes and would not have been good for people to sit around. Luckily the other fire pit was great and we were all able to sit around it. The bathrooms and water were close by.

There were other sites that were much bigger and would be able to accommodate larger groups. I would not waste my money on the group site if you need more then 4 tents, honestly 3 was a squeeze. It's a great campground for those that are spending multiple days in Mt. Saint Helen's since it was a very short drive away.

Solitudity

Designated dispersal camping is a great idea - no loud neighbors within at least a couple wooded blocks between each site. You get large, open circles of bare ground at Cook Creek, each with a fire ring. The 5 sites are a tad bit off the road… good. The trees, hills and water are all luxurious. There are boulders blocking the road after site 5. You can walk around them, though presumably the road is flooded out, making the other sites unreachable. Would be interesting to explore.

All-Arounder

Henry Rierson fully earns its healthy glow. Open May 15 to September 15, this is a sprawling, versatile campground with seemingly something for everyone. I loved that there were isolated patches of campsites and day use areas on both sides of the road, a spot on the gorgeous Nehalem River perfect for exploration, a friendly and responsive camp host, a lot of different sizes and layouts of campsites, and nearby hikes, like the new Spruce Run trail and the Nehalem Bay coast jaunt that gets you communing with harbor seals. Being a bit more bashful sometimes, though, I could have used a lot more trees and more distance from roads. Trucks and engines galore. Still - get in and get out there. Henry saved you a spot.
