A nice spot centrally located near Lincoln City and Newport. The gift shop/info center is nice, small, and staffed with friendly volunteers. I highly recommend the Junior Ranger program for kids! A short distance to the beach and cool octopus trees!
My family loves this beach, we go every year! It is so quiet and if you want to make a quick trip to town it is just a short drive down the road.
Rangers are NEVER at the window to check people in.
My husband is a disabled veteran and they had us park in the back 40, no where near the ocean, moved us 3 times and we ended up in a mud hole spot.
Excellent beach access
Sites are mostly private
Hot water in the showers
Very clean campground..showers and bathroom ok.had a level , paved pad for our trailer . nice trail down to the beach. Some have pull thru sites with full hook ups. The closer sites have cable available for $1. More. Enjoyed our time would go back again.
My wife and two Boston Terriers had a blast here, but the place is a little cramped and crowded. Amazing sandy beach is nearby to the campsites, although the way down to the beach might be a little steep for folks with mobility issues. Having firewood and ice for purchase in the park is nice and we were able to spend our whole weekend in the park without leaving for supplies. We were just looking for a place to sleep while spending our days on the beach and it's perfect for that. Not much else to do in the park, but fantastic location for getting to other spots nearby - Newport, Yaquina Head Natural Area, and a plethora of other small wayside parks are all a short drive away.
The campground has some nice amenities - a short walk from your campsite to trash, recycling, water, bathrooms, and the beach. There are on site staff ready to answer your questions. They also have a doggy bag spot where you can dispose of dog waste and pick up a new bag if needed. There’s a short trail that follows the creek. Overall it’s a good campsite but lacks any privacy or seclusion from other campers.
Our campsite had a lot of room and was a short walk over to the beach. Our particular site (A07) was conveniently located by the restrooms/showers. The shower room was decent. There were quite a few people there out and about having fun, but everyone had their own space, and it wasn’t particularly noisy. It was also just an 8 minute drive down to the local town. The campsite was well kept and the workers there that day were incredibly nice.
Great campground, hidden from the ocean winds but just a short walk onto the beach. We had the river right behind the site, and it was so peaceful! Right at the beach, close to Newport and TONS of stuff to do there. Very relaxing atmosphere.
