Simple, quiet

Wild strawberry growing on the dunes

Be careful of the camp host

Decent camp ground , horrible / dangerous camp host I’ve been going there since 85ish in the recent years the camp host have been volatile towards young children and campers in general. I’ve seen them call the sherif and rangers and have innocent families uprooted and removed for no reason . Unfortunately I will never be returning to a place that I’ve had so much history growing up a place that was like my second home all b cause camp host threatened multiple families multiple years in a row and I had to bare witness. Very very sad

Lots of space. Loud motorcycles on the beach

It's a fine place to camp. Nice spots. Lots of motorcycles driving around 24/7

Fishing delight

Very nice staff. Good clean RV Park. Charleston is a major homeless people region and the park has no gates. Hence, the wanders come in a lot. Security is good and do a lot to help. We call twice in the eeek stay. Really good guys. Crabbing g was good on docks close by. Clean showers and rest rooms. Fish cleaning room is awesome! NO RENTAL BOATS IN COOS BAY ORCHARLESTON!

Amazing resort!

Short stay here! All amenities! Cabins, full facilities! Lake access galore

Basic review for basic location

LArgentina open spaces for people who have toy haulers. Tons of noise all day and night. Come here if you have sand toys or horses!

Rest rooms but no showers. Basic fire rings and that's it.

Right next to the dunes!

Quaint location. Great amenities!

We visited this campground for the second time this past weekend and even in late October it is a fantastic location to go on the coast!

It has tent sites, RV pads cabins and is one of the few locations where delux yurts can be rented.

W stayed in a cabin last time, but that loop is closed for construction until 2019.

This time it was the delux yurt, which sleeps up to 9 people, has it's own bathroom with toilet, sink and shower, microwave, fridge, kitchen sink,TV, DVD player and heater that will cook you out if you want it to. Outside comes with a porch, picnic bench and 4 burner gas grill. Fantastic for group rental! We had 5 adults and it was a ton of space!

The yurts are just up the hill from the lake where you can go fishing and hike the approximately 1 mile long trail.

There is also a day use area with benches and a small sandy beach.

Lover this place!

Great acess for RV and ATV campers

Loop A & B: Sitting right in Winchester Bay, this campground likely got this name because of the wind chills that whip by during the night or stormy days. I would not go tent camping at this site, but RV, trailer, car-camping and ATV use would be great! This site has access to their piers for fishing, access to small local shops, and the dunes are less than 5 minutes away. We enjoyed visiting the Umpqua Lighthouse State Park while in town and recommend trying DD’s pub for fresh oysters caught in the oyster triangle.

This site DOES have bathrooms, showers, and a large playground. There is no privacy between the sites, be forewarned.

More info:

Access to Fishing dock and picnic area

These site are fairly shady and private, covered by trees and foliage. The sites at this campground are large enough for an RV or tent. The sites are set up in a grid and if you are further up on the hill you will need to walk a bit through the pathways/camps to get to the restrooms.

There is acess right across the street to a fishing dock and a few picnic tables for a small family event or outing. If you looking for something extra to do, try driving up the road to the Loon Lake resort and restaurant for a bite to eat. We did not go swimming near this site, but if you were to look around there is a flowing river along the road and walk-in area near the Loon Lake resort that you may be able to sneak into.

There is a site with ADA access. All sites are $15/camping and $5/day use vehicle.

Recreation sites around Loon lake - across the street

Loon Lake Campground sits on Loon Lake about 40 minutes outside Reedsport Oregon. This campsite is somewhat private with enclosures from plants/foliage and well kept, but also sits right on the roadside across from Loon Lake and you will need to cross the road to get to the day-use and lake acess area. There is enough room for RVs trailers and/or tents and per usual vault toilets and campfire rings. Make sure to bring your own water.

While staying at this site, if you like to day-trip and see the area I advise that you go up the road and eat a meal at the Loon Lake Resort restaurant and possibly rent a boat or go fishing off of their pier. Reedsport is a fun, little town and is the nearest grocery store for forgotten items.

Small stream to babble you to sleep

This campsite can be on the pricy side, but it’s probably worth it if you get the right spot, on the river about half way into the campground, across from the second bathroom is the best. Speaking of the bathroom…there is running water, what?! Is it really camping when there is hot water from a faucet??

Lots to hike to around the area. Love this place.

What a fun place!

There is so much fun to be had here! From the Sand dunes, fun hikes, Woahink Lake and summer activities we highly recommend booking in advance for this family friendly campground in summer! Staff is friendly, Park is very clean, and spots are spacious.

Loved it!

We rent camped and had a great experience

Quiet and Great location, expensive for no hookups

Loved this campground. Very quiet, only hearing the sounds of the creek and wind in trees all day and night. Somewhat expensive for a spot without any hookups ($26/night) but was a great stay. Does not have cell service there, but you can get Verizon service at the Cape Perpetua Visitors Center just up the road, or by using one of the trails from the ground (0.2 miles to visitor center). They have many trails leaving the campground and many in the area. Great spot to stay.

Great Spot, No OHVs allowed

My go-to spot if i come back to the oregon dunes area. This campground, while central in the dune and OHV area, doesn't allow OHVs in the grounds so it is by far the quietest and most secluded of the campgrounds in the area. Surrounded by trees and right up against the lake with a great loop trail around it. Barely has a bar of cell service (verizon) when there. Has bathrooms and fresh water available as well. And spots are large with good privacy.

Ocean Sounds and Beach Access

Nice shaded hike and bike area close to restrooms and showers. Open area nearby to relax in the sun. A trial takes you on a short walk to the beach. Clean and well maintained campground. Wide sandy beaches with very few people.

Hike and Bike Difficult to Reach on Rainy Days

The hike and bike area is secluded and quiet, but it is also difficult to reach.  You must take a dirt trail that can be muddy and slick on rainy days. Nice clean restrooms and showers.  Campground can be loud at times from people coming for the nearby dunes. Campground has yurts.

Secluded and Quiet

Hike and bike area is down a short trail near the RV spots, but still quiet. Lots of trails taking you down to a river for canoeing and kayaking. Also within walking distance of the lighthouse. Tent spot has fire pit and table. Firewood, showers and restrooms available.

Nice Scenery

Beautiful coastal areas in close proximaty to the campground. Good facilities for most every type of camping, including hike and bike.

Crowded and Loud

Close RV hookups and lots of traffic. Close to town. Seperate fenced hike and bike area next to garbage dumpster. Nice lockers where you can store valuables and charge batteries. Yurts!

Nice spot

Cozy little campground! A few spots are right on the road of the loop but some are set back into the trees to provide more privacy! Not too busy in the off season. Restrooms available.

Nice wooded campground

National Forest campground with a host in season, good bathrooms. Some campsites provide more tree cover and privacy than others. Fire rings and tables at sites. Great little picnic area as well!

Little privacy but easy access

Smaller campground with campsites that are very close to each other. Nice tree coverage but too close proximity to your neighbors for us!

Popular campground for RVs & yurts

Campground with lots of amenities right off the hwy and close to the beach. Trail down to the beach, playground for the kiddos, yurt rentals available. Good facilities. We are tent campers so it wasn't our cup of tea, but great if you have a camper or are looking for a yurt!

Ok place to stay

Sites are on the small side, little privacy. Rained but our tent was under a tree so the only thing that got wet was the fire wood.

One of our favorites on the Oregon coast

Not reservable, full hookups, easy access. Walk from the campground to the generally deserted beach, hike the trail to Heceta Head, or kick back. Several camp hosts are always on site. Open all year. Large restrooms with showers. Yurts, hiker/biker area. Located between Cape Perpetua and Florence. The day-use area and dump station are across hwy 101 from the campground.

Great Beach, trails, surfing, swimming, kayaking, fishing, nice campground.

Close to small fishy village, golf course next door, close to other golf courses, and other state parks, close to sand dunes.

Can't wait to go back!

This place was very popular with RV campers, but there are definitely tent sites too. We ended up staying an extra night even, we just did not want to leave. Showers, flush toilets, gorgeous views of Floras Lake, and the beach. The walk to the beach was a bit long, but it wasn't hard, and still lots of fun. The kids had fun splashing around in the fresh water Floras Lake on the way back from the actual beach.

Quiet, secluded, and seemingly private.

We stopped here on the way down the coast. It was way past dark, and there were a surprising amount of RVs there, which we weren't expecting. But we still managed to find a reserved spot(it was reserved for the next night, and we were planning on leaving first thing to continue South anyways). I was pleasantly surprised by the spot. The firepit was back in the bushes, and the tent site was nearby it. There was a picnic table at our site, and lots of little trails going down to the nearby creek. We almost stayed longer, but we were set on going further down the coast. I wouldn't mind going back at some point, and checking out more of the area and trails.


Loved it eventhough it rained most the time we were theres
