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.
This campground has easy access to the beach as well as a great playground for kids. There are clean facilities and great areas to bike with littles around camp. The combination of the river, ocean, and trees makes for a wonderful getaway. The only drawback is it can get crowded.
I could explore here for days. Beautiful sights, lots of fun for the kids. Cool shop. Will stay here again.
4 1/2 stars for this sprawling, accessible campground, easy to find and close to so many things Shangra-La-ish about Newport and the Oregon Coast. There's a bit of a family vibe, a noisier community thing sometimes…. Keep in mind that there are over 250 campsites, sites for hikers, 3 count 'em 3 group sites, a yurt shire near the water, a playground and amphitheater…something for everyone within and without. The beach here is large, so you can join the crowd or get away from it all. Just south you've got incredible Newport with the aquarium, Yaquina Bay, the Sylvia Beach Hotel with each room themed after an author and always open for tours, the Cooper Ridge Nature Trail (pictured) and so much more. It's right off Hwy 101, but the ocean waves and large campground size make up for the highway noise. This will definitely stay in our open-all-year bank of goodies.
