The sites are covered in water and the lake is unusable with algae. The path to the Ocean is over 101 and about a 15-20 minute walk. It is close to town though. There is some kind of gun range that has started close by and is really loud. The community center is fun
just off the hwy but quite, stayed in the handicap yurt. Was my B-day so we were just walked to the bar.
Okay, if you're looking for privacy, this is not the place for you. But if you want reasonably priced accommodations near beaches, restaurants & whatever Lincoln City has to offer, then this is where you want.
Stayed here one night after staying up in Nehalem Falls for several nights and before heading back to Portland. Sure, this place is popular and pretty much booked during tourist season. Complaining about that is like asking why travel during the holidays is always so busy.. or why is it so hard to fight the tide..
But if you visit here for what it is - decent campgrounds as close to the action as you can get without paying beach hotel prices, you can do worse.
I’ve stayed here for one night a couple of times when on a road trip down to California. The bathrooms are really nice. The campsites are sizable and allow for some privacy. The staff and campsite host are friendly and helpful.
the campsites are close together. I came in around 530pm on a Friday and left around 530am on a Saturday.
Bring your Mini and your two-man ultralight backpacking kit, because that’s what you’ll have room for at these cramped tent sites. Forget about a relaxing afternoon in your hammock - there won’t be trees at your site suitable for hanging, and if there are trees, they’ll be over a muddy blackberry patch separating you from your neighbors. And your neighbors will definitely be up swearing at each other across their campfire until 11, radio blaring from their truck stereo. Should you be lucky enough to fall asleep, there’s a good chance a fire engine on Highway 101, which is a hundred yards away, will shoot past at midnight to make sure you have a bad time.
This stay was nice and easy. Spots are close but for the most part have a sufficient buffer for privacy. We didn't have any neighbors with was great. Bathrooms were clean. We walked up and down the beach the majority of our stay. Even though the beach is cold in November it was beautiful!
The park is well run and equipped. It was very quiet in the evenings and a very short walk down to the lake where you can sit and relax. It is also a short distance from shopping and other supplies and some touristy stops.
Great campground with lots of trees for privacy and the lake is lovely with lots of fingers that lead off the main lake so you can find solitude on the lake when fishing or just bobbing around.
There are ten Yurts for rent so if you're not up for tent camping the yurts are nice. Note there is only one pet friendly yurt and it books up quick.
I stayed in one of the dog friendly yurts that they offerend at Devils Lake, and had a great time. It is very nice, and well maintained. You can either set up a tent, stay in a yurt, or bring your camper. The campsite is not too far from town, and walkable distance to the beach. You also have a nice path back to your own lake! Not a lot of people crowd the lake either, so it is a lovely getaway!
