Fantastic!

Great location - Go crabbing at Kelly's and then horseback riding on the beach!

easy camping on the coast

clean and well kept, camping is always a breeze here. yurts are available and RV's are easily accommodated. Plenty of opportunities for outdoor/coast activities such as fishing, crabbing, and exploring. might see a few deer or two as well

Great location, great people and fairly quiet.

Especially if you’re a hiker/biker this campground is incredible. The areas are clearly labeled and yurts are available. The bathrooms are clean and there ida playground for families.

Overall Very Peaceful

It was quiet and serene. The people there were respectful of the grounds and other people. When we went the tide had gone out leaving little tide pools around. It was very nice. Highly suggest

Best kid friendly and boating friendly campground

Very well set up with lots of play space for kiddos.

Great hiking and biking trails.

Excellent boating and kayaking on the Nehalem River & Bay.

Peaceful Slice of Heaven on the Pacific Coast

Really cool atmosphere just steps away from the beach. The sounds of the waves can be heard right from your site. Nice facilities. Yurt is highly recommended and sleeps 5. Really liked that each yurt had its own deck, picnic table, and fire pit. The shrubbery around the campgrounds was really cool and offered extra privacy. They also had equestrian sites as well as tent and electric RV. Cannot wait to go back my only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

Great beach camping!

We loved this place, clean bathrooms, easy walk to the beach, beautiful view, awesome for families. Perfect trees in most spots for hammocks! If you’re going with a group make sure you will have room for all the tens you need!

Absolutely beautiful!

I fell in love with Nehalem Bay State Park. We stayed in a pet friendly yurt and in laws were at a RV spot. The beach was just a short walk over the sand dunes. The walk to Manzanita was a nice and very dog friendly. We also walked around the spit. I highly recommend making the short drive to Kelly’s Marina for fresh crab.

Beautiful beaches

Even though we went in may it was very busy there, not a lot of privacy from other campers. Nice park for kids to play. The bathrooms are well kept. Host was very nice and they come around a lot if you need wood. I can't say it enough, one of the most beautiful beaches on the oregon coast. We went on a 70 degree weekend with a little shower but when the sun came out it was outstanding. We did not have a chance to do any crabbing or clamming while there but heard it's a great place to.

Perfect for sunset!

Youre most likely to get a spot at nehalem if you reserve in advance-- of if you get lucky like we did and walk up right when someone passes by to say they are leaving their site early.

Nehalem SP is awesome because of its convenient location next to Manzanita and the campground is literally over the sand dune from the pacific.

its a crowded campground and feels more like a parking lot than a secluded nature experience and there are lots of RVs.

Each site has picnic tables and plugins and water access. The electric came in handy to charge my laptop :)

Bathrooms were far away from my site but there are great facilities and a nice playground. The best part is that you can walk over the dune and be on the coast to watch the sunset in 2 minutes from your tent!
