Peaceful

Great camp spot to keep kids busy! Very quiet and camp spots were perfect distance. Plenty of restrooms. The stream has some swim sections, but not entirely. Bring water shoes!

Amazing! Family / pet friendly

Amazing RV Park, well maintained roads, lots, and landscaping. Both fellow campers and staff were extremely welcoming. There was also plenty to do around the campsite between fishing, the small kids park and the park provided activity’s (corn hole, etc.). The only reason I say 4 stars is the sites are a little small. Very little space between other campers.

Great sunsets

Much smaller than South Beach State Park a few miles south, but in my opinion a more relaxed campground.

Campground is less open and more wooded than some of the other coast parks. Beach is very close via a short trail under the highway bridge and can be seen from A loop. The proximity to the water makes the sunsets better here than at some of the other campgrounds.

This campground isn’t within walking distance of any other attractions, but a nice nature trail around the camp and the beach is really all that’s needed here. The visitor center provides a nice history of the beach and how it got its name.

And speaking of the beach… FOSSILS! Literally everywhere on this beach. Nearly every rock and cliff face is littered with marine fossils of varying types and sizes and you can often find individual fossilized shells that can be collected.

Beverly Beach is also popular for agate hunting along the gravel bars, particularly after big storms that uncover new stones.

This is a BIG campground

Part of South Beach State Park, the campground is a great base camp for the entire Newport area. The camp is extremely well maintained, and the hosts obviously take pride in their work.

The sites a little on close side, but provide adequate space. There’s an excellent playground for the kids and the beach is 1/4 mile down a paved trail that is handicap accessible. The trail system also gives access to the south jetty, a small convenience store/restaurant, the Oregon aquarium, and the Hatfield Marine Science Center. Hatfield is a part of the Oregon State University system and is free, but accepts donations.

The south jetty is a good place for spotting starfish, crabs, and anemones. The beach is relatively clean of debris and has some opportunities for finding shells and marine fossils.

Great clean place.

Stunning river views and small with only 11 sites that are first come first served. Refurbished a few years ago. This is my go to for during the week over nighters as it’s never been full. Last year I went in June for a solo night and I had the place to myself. Hiking nearby with tabletop rock and about 25 miles of trail right across the road. Only issue I have found is the logging trucks run all night.

Nice for a day

Waterloo is pretty open and has some bike trails and some parks and a pretty great disc golf course! The water is really cold but perfect for a day outside or a picnic with the kids!

Love it!

This campground is very open and friendly! It is right on Foster Lake and not to far up the road is less crowded Green Peter lake. If you want to go boating go to Green Peter! It’s a bit more of a drive, but fewer people are on the lake and this lake is a lot calmer for skiing and things like that! Sunny side has a couple parks and is far enough out of town to be pretty quiet! Great place!

Great campground!!

This is a very clean campground. It is a ways out of town which I personally prefer! Kid friendly for sure and around the campground it’s got many good swimming holes!
