The good: Clean bathrooms with showers Nice hosts River access Play structure for kids Lots of grassy areas to toss the ball for the dog Easy access from I-5
The bad: Zero privacy between sites Quiet hours not enforced Constant drone of the interstate, even at lower sites down by the river we couldn’t hear the water over the traffic. Oddly someone shooting guns across the river.
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.
This is a good campground to stay in the summer months. There are only a few spots available. All the spots are right on the river which makes for an amazing nights sleep!
The main road is right behind the camp which can be noisy at times but the River helps with that.
Young’s Rock trail is just across the road if you’re looking for a difficult hike with ‘1400 elevation gain.
