This is one of the largest state park campgrounds in Oregon! Nice location near Astoria and Seaside, with lots of things to do and explore.
There are different “loops” available, with many RV sites. We were the only tent campers we could see in our RV loop, the sizes vary, but their website gives you a general size idea. All the loops have restroom/shower facilities that were regularly stocked and cleaned.
There is a lake within the park that you can boat or go fishing. Also, there is access to the beach right in the park. This beach is one of the few that allow motor vehicle use.
Check out the old military sites and the shipwreck while at the park, and head in to Astoria for a day of exploration!
We stayed here and felt like it was so cool. The campground is clean, plenty of space and there was lots of historic spots to checkout. We didn’t have cell service the whole week. We had lots of bugs and fog but it’s Oregon and kinda typical lol the kids really enjoyed it and then walking the beach to check out the shipwreck too
Such a great place to stay on the Oregon coast! I love this campground because it’s on the coast, very beautiful and spacious. Great sites around to see including the mouth of the Columbia River. Spacious sites you can reserve and electric/water etc. There is even an area for hiker and bikers. You’re close to Astoria, Gearhart, Cannon Beach and Portland is only an hour and a half away.
Fort Stevens State Park in Warrenton, OR is a clean and well maintained park for all levels of camping from tents to large RV’s. They even have Yurts, many which are pet friendly. There are many miles of hiking/biking trails through forest and beaches. The old fort is fun to visit . For those wanting to explore further, there is Astoria to the north and Seadide and Cannon Beach to the south. I highly recommend a visit.
This campground is big, and very popular. Make sure to make reservations as campground was full at the end of August. There are several trails and you can walk to the beach. The campsite we had was nice sized. There is an old fort here and an old shipwreck that was neat to see. Restrooms and showers available, and they were nice. Just a short drive to Astoria, Oregon. Probably my second favorite campground on our vacation.
We go every year with a large group and stay at the yurts! They have great kid's programs, playground and easy biking! You can chose the lake or the beach to spend your day or check out the battery!
We brought the kids and expected to listen to their complaints the whole time, but they were intrigued by everything!
The Peter Iredale Shipwreck was the main selling point for deciding to stay at Fort Stevens State Park in northern Oregon. I am a photographer, and as part of our road trip from Southern California to Vancouver Island, BC, I wanted to make a pit stop to see the shipwreck. Given our route and timeline, it worked out to spend the night at Fort Stevens State Park.
The campsites were small, but nice. I always look at campsite photos before choosing a site, and I found one that was pretty secluded with shrubbery and trees, for privacy. We arrived so late we didn’t bother cooking, and just at chips and salsa with some margaritas - however, there was a fire ring and a picnic table.
The campground had wonderful hot PRIVATE showers, all in their own little individual, lockable space. The showers were nice and clean, and no coins were needed!!!
The Peter Iredale shipwreck is certainly a tourist magnet, but still very cool to see. The fort itself was very interesting to roam around and explore - great for adventures and history lovers alike!
There were a lot of mosquitos, but that’s just mother nature doing her thing.
Overall - good experience!

Hiking,biking,fishing, boating, crabbing, clamming, and just plain relaxing in beautiful country at its finest.
Military Family so Fort Stevens was definitely on our list as we travel to Oregons State Parks!
This park is huge compared to most of Oregons State Parks, it is also one of the most popular. So be sure to book months in advance if you plan on visiting during peak season.
The campsites were spacious, the playground was nice and there are many hike/bike trails to explore. The shipwreck on the beach was pretty cool and the Fort/ Military Museum was Amazing!
Located near Seaside with its aquarium and Astoria home of the Goonies, there is plenty to see and do!
The only downside to this park was the Hoards of Mosquitoes we encountered in the campground, so be sure to bring lots of bug spray!
