This Campground is in a great location with direct access to the Winchester Bay Dunes.
Located in the woods this Campground feels more like calling then many of the other local campground. They do have sites large enough to accommodate trailers and campers however there are not any hookups. The restrooms are well maintained.
You can get to the dunes and the beach in minutes. There is a great view of a lighthouse.
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.
If you're into riding quads or ATVs, then this is the place to go. There are miles of sand dunes with great step climbs and great views. We were able to pull our pop-up camper right out on the dunes. This is home to the notorious Banshee hill, a long step climb that can be intimidating if you are new but a thrill to ride up.
You have to be cautious though, lots of people get suck pulling their campers out onto the sand. You need to take your tire pressure down to 15psi. Know where your going and walk it first.
There are restrooms at the parking lots which are a but if a ride to get to.
This is honestly one of my favorite places to camp because it's the access to the dunes.
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.
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.
I have been going to Beverly Beach State park every summer for almost ten years. This place truly feels like home away from home. I love the atmosphere. I enjoy having the best of both worlds while camping. You can enjoy the ocean and sandy beaches while also camping where there are trees on both sides of the campsite to provide privacy. Not all campgrounds have this unique feature.
This is an higher end resort we have stayed at, lots of trail to the beach, two pools. We met a lot of other RV’ers and everyone was very nice. All the spaces are concrete, you can even own a lot here. Prices ranging from $40,000 to $200,000
