Great for RVs

Smaller loop campground with deep campsites for RVs. Wouldn't recommend staying here if you are just in a tent or prefer quieter campsites. Great access to the beach, recycling, restrooms, electric hookups, etc.

Right on the beach - thus the name

Between Waldport and Yachats on 101. Always full - reserve early. The beach is right there. Sites are separated by trees. Hosts on site. One big bathroom with showers. One smaller bathroom. Tent and trailer/rv hookups. No sewer dump on site. Closes for the winter.

Love this place!

We have camped here a few times and love the area. It does have a few non reservable sites, so even when we decided at the last minute to drive down, we were lucky to have a few sites still available. They also have free showers in the restroom. We will be back many more times!

Oregon beach getaway

This is a great small campground area. Bathroom/shower house very clean. Short walk through the campground to the beach (3 access points). Host staff super friendly. When it was windy on the beach, the campground was quiet and not very windy. Good tree coverage. Was kind of cool at the beginning of May. Beach area is huge, lots to walk.

Close Campsites/Great Location

Forested campsites, some of them are pretty close together, but overall a pretty good spot. Easy beach access, lots of points of interest nearby including Cape Perpetua, Waldport, Siuslaw National Forest. Good facilities, clean restrooms, drinking water conveniently located throughout the campgrounds. It was busy while we visited and even though the sites were close together, it never felt crowded. Lots of trees, bushes between sites that make it feel more secluded. Some highway noise, but nothing too bad and it quiets down at night.

Great Beach campground

I stayed at this campground while doing a bike ride down the 101 for multiple days.

This was an easy to find campground with all the amenities that you would need. Allowed fires and fresh water. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking just for a tent spot, to families looking for a camping getaway with friends. Awesome place close to the ocean.

Beachfront convenience

This is one of my favorite sites on the oregon coast. It's easy to get to, right off hwy 101 between yachats and waldport. This does make for some traffic noise, which settles in the eve. but well worth the beachfront sites. Steps from the the crashing waves and miles of unpopulated clean sandy beaches. Clean restrooms with nice hot showers for paying campers and at a reasonable rate, under 30 bucks a night, well worth it. They sell wood on site and also offer jr. ranger programs and interpretive sessions as well.

PROS:

  • Beachfront sites
  • Beach access
  • Super clean restroom facilities

CONS:

  • sometimes hard to get sites
  • Directly on hwy 101
Quaint little campground near the beach

Beautiful beach, quaint little campground with two sets of restrooms and a set of showers. Very well kept.

The only drawbacks for me personally were all of the tent campsites were in the back, while the RV sites were closest to the beach, potentially with the best views. Plus the tent sites are closest to 101. However, the noise didn't seem to bother me throughout the day and through the night.

First to Review
Yurts are sweet, hot showers are hot

Beachside is great. The yurts are the perfect thing for winter or fall camping. We like to go in the winter and watch whales, and staying in a yurt is the perfect thing for the rainy season. Because the weatehr changes by the minute, you can walk on the beach, head back to the yurt during a downpour, and back out when it stops. If you get really cold, you can take a hot shower! Not a crowded feel, even when full. Lovely views.
