Situated half way up the Oregon coast and three miles south of Florence on scenic Highway 101 is the second largest overnight camp in the state. There are two miles of sand dunes between the park and the ocean. Two natural freshwater lakes are within the park. Cleawox -- which is great for swimming -- and Woahink, which has a public boat ramp, is used for all water sports. Rent a canoe and explore the lake.
Approximately 45 full-hookup sites, more than 120 electrical sites with water, more than 185 tent sites with water nearby, 10 yurts (one pet-friendly), and six seasonal group tent camping areas.

You'd have to be really careful when choosing a campsite because of the size of tent pads, etc. A newbie to camping may overlook that important detail and arrive to a site with barely space for tent, closeness of tent to firepit, etc.
The campground is pretty popular in the Coast so during peak seasons, it will get crowded.
The bathrooms are great and clean - showers are free and open all night. There is a toilet in the bathroom so it was great for families who … multi-task (shower a kid while emptying bladders separately).
Our boys, aged 8 and 6, enjoyed the playground within the campground. The roads are paved so they were able to ride their bikes around the connected loops.
Bring a tent broom because there are pine trees everywhere! You may need to sweep before and after setting up your tent.
We tent-camped and drove an SUV.
Located in Florence, Oregon, this campground is perfect for anyone who is looking for coastal camping, dune hiking, boating, crabbing, or to ride atvs. The best time of year is August, but do prepare yourself and your family for a bit of a crowd. A nice little dune lagoon, lake cleawox sits at the entrance of the park campground and is a great place to relax during the day.
Be sure to rent a few sandboards as well but do be careful if you are going to sandboard down the big handyman dune. Not only can falling off sting just a bit, but people are notorious for atving where they shouldn't despite signs
Huge campground with really spacious sites. It gets very busy in the summer so make sure you book in advance. Good showers and bathrooms but there is a TON of ATV noise.
Its the perfect spot on the oregon coast for camping. They have showers, restrooms, playground, the day use area has a great swimming area. Place to rent paddle boards and boats. Great fishing. Plus your close to town. Beaches dunes restaurants and shopping . Go explore and have fun
A great choice if you’re looking for an established campground with all the amenities (flush toilets, running water, showers). Also good if you’re looking for an inexpensive place to stay while visiting the coast. However, if you are looking for the “authentic camping experience”, this is not it. Everything is paved, sites tend to be close together and it can be noisy.
WONDERFUL clean showers; a little tight with neighbors but well-designed to make you feel a bit farther away; garbage only at entrance; wood available for purchase
There’s plenty to do even if you don’t have ATV’s
This is our Go To Oregon State Park as we are within an hours drive.
Staff is friendly every visit and the visitor center is great with a lot of fun activities for kids. Don't forget to take advantage of the State Parks Junior Ranger Program and learn some fun facts about the park!
We love this campground and its ease of availability year round.
Highly recommend this park!
This is the best kid camp we have found. Bike riding, shallow swim area, sand dunes to ride down, fishing, hiking trails. plus the beach is a short drive away. we love all of the trees in the area too.
Very clean, great year round. Its chilly because its on the coast but fun to take the sand toys as the dunes are right next to this campground .
