We stay here because we can do some Rockhounding on the Lincoln City beaches. Despite being located in a busy Oregon Coast tourist town, it isn’t that noisy. It can flood in the fall and spring months, their rainy seasons. There is usually a camp host or two where you can get help or firewood. The sites aren’t that private although native Rhododendrons and others often divide the sites. What I like the best are the free hot showers and an outside sink to wash your dishes. There are standard (no hookups) and hookup sites with water, wastes water and power. There off season rates available for less cost. We paid $21 for a standard no hookup site the last time we were there in April, 2018.
This campground is best suited for boaters and fishermen. You can pull your boat up to the shore, close to the campsites. They sell firewood and ice. Restrooms not too clean. No privacy. Don’t camp near the highway or it’s pretty noisy at night.
I have camped here numerous times over the years. I love the dispersed camping. The sites are open, so good for solar, but do get windy.
I have camped at the quarry a few times with my friends that have a camp trailer. I have also camped in the pull outs.
My friends have found chanterelles in the woods, and fishing (last time I was there) has been great. It is great for fly fishing and for plunk and wait fishing.
It is dispersed so only a few areas have bathrooms, and not being a regular campground some neighbors can get rather rowdy. But, overall it is a definite favorite.
I love this site. There is a trail at the far end that leads to a cool rock formation with caves in it. They are small but really cool to explore. Cute and gross little cave crickets live there as well as those creepy spiders. But over all a beautiful walk in and out. I prefer to go in the fall because of the leaves ❤️
