Beautiful wooded site with good basic amenities (showers and large clean toilets) – perfect for a self-contained campervan. The sites were large – two cars and three tents – and reasonably priced, and being in among the trees our site felt more private than a standard RV park. We had our own picnic table and a firepit with built in grill, and logs were available to buy onsite. Very peaceful at night, and amazing view of the stars. Would definitely stay here again.
We managed to book a place here at short notice for a busy weekend in August, when all the State campsites were completely booked up. You can book online via the Tillamook County Parks Department site (the booking page was a little glitchy and the box to enter your booking dates occasionally disappeared, but switching between the 'Camping/RV' and 'Day Use/Picnic' tabs brought it back up!) We were glad to get any booking at all, and this was a really pleasant surprise.
Small campground but we enjoyed our stay. Big play field, kids area. Site big enough for 2 good sized tents and the hosts were very nice.
We had the opportunity to visit this park while working our way home form the Oregon coast. Access is just south of Bay city and north of Tilamoock of Hwy 101. Kilches reserve is on the Tillamook bay but the park is east 12 miles.
This was a very quiet park located next to the Kilches river, there was access to the river, nice restrooms with showers and ADA compliant. The road is narrow, be carefull if pulling a large trailer or RV.
We had kids from 1-10 and they all stayed busy over a 4 day stay. The playground is very nice for all ages. Bathrooms are clean and updated. Easy access to the river and close to Tillamook and all it has to offer. The park host was very nice and helpful and they had lots of dry wood. Lots of fishermen there when we stayed so there is good fishing near by. The campsites are nice and large with picnic table and firepit.
