This campsite is located in the north end of the Winchester Bay dunes. It is a county owned park. They have cabins, tent sites, and an RV/camper lot.
There is a sand trail that connects the campground to the dunes near Banshee Hill. Which is what makes this campsite great.
They just redid half of the campground. There RV side has bran new pavement and concert. We were the first to use our site this weekend (5/15/2020). All new hookups with power, water and sewer. The bathrooms and showers were all closed due to COVID-19.
The new sites are close together with zero grass it vegetation. It feels like you are camping in the back of a Walmart parking lot. Having said this the other half of the campground for have grass and trees with a but more space. If your plan is to spend all day riding and just need a place to camp this is a great choice.
The new fire pits are located on the concert which was a but odd and as we discovered, potentially dangerous. We had started a campfire and started preparing dinner, when we heard an explosion. The heat of the fire had caused the concert below the fire pit to explore (see photo). Concrete and large hot embers flew everywhere. And burnt large holes on our camp chairs. Fortunately we were about 10 get away getting our food. We brought this up to the maintenance staff and they just shrugged it off. Hopefully they find a way to make the other fire pits safe.
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!
I have visited this park on and off for over 30 years. Great place for kids and adults and pets. Play area, fishing ramp, camp sites and plenty of car or RV parking. It's located right on Willamette river and has great fishing. Barbeque areas and covered seats. Bathrooms are fairly well maintained. Waterloo store is long time land mark not far from park with all your needs including worms and firewood. There are smaller park areas with bbq and play areas around main camping area as well. I would recommend locking everything up though, just my personal tip. Year round fun.
