Just an hour’s drive west of Portland, the oceanfront town of Seaside is a convenient hub for exploring Oregon’s spectacular northern coast area, and all its attractions and activities. Start with the downtown Seaside area, which features a collection of shops, galleries and eateries featuring a Northwest–Pacific flair. At the end of the main drag is a wide sandy beach that invites sunning, swimming and surfing, and is popular for kite-flying. Just south of town, Ecola State Park is a wooded headland with hiking trails and sandy beaches. A little farther south, the small town of Cannon Beach—named in the late 1800s for the rusty cannon that washed ashore nearby—features a variety of cafes, eclectic shops, and fine art galleries. Just offshore of the town’s wide, sandy beach is Haystack Rock, a 235-foot-high volcanic sea stack. North of Seaside, the village of Astoria sits near the Columbia River’s delta on the Pacific Ocean. This historic town features a fascinating maritime museum, and the artistic Astoria Column, which offers panoramic views from atop its narrow, winding staircase.
Located just minutes from downtown Seaside and its plethora of fish and chips shops, the Seaside RV Resort is an ideal base for exploring all of the area’s many sights and attractions. The resort features 260 year-round, back-in campsites with full hookups, flush restrooms, showers, laundry facilities, and recycling stations. Most sites are open and grassy; some sites and facilities are ADA accessible. A primitive tent camp is located in a wooded area away from the RV section, and there are cabins and cottages available for rent. The resort features picnic areas, kids’ playground, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, fitness center, spa, sports courts, mini golf, and a dog park. Guests are welcome to participate in group activities and enjoy live entertainment. Wifi service is available in resort clubhouses. Dogs are welcome, but must remain leashed outside of campsites. Campsite rates are $44–$61/night; cabins and cottages are $135–$170/night; reservations available.
This was an interesting Thousand Trails. We stay three nights from October 11th through 14th, 2019, at campsite 151, the stay was free due to our Thousand Trails membership. Our site had sewer, electricity, and water hook up. The sewer connection at the campsite was a nice plus. The site was level and easy to back in to.
The sites were the closest we've been to at a Thousand Trails, with no trees for privacy. What made the Seaside interesting was there wasn't much noise even though the sites were close to each other. The campground was at sea level and just outside of downtown Seaside. Our 28 ft travel trailer easily fit into our spot. Once we entering the campground, the campground roads are all gravel.
The weather in October was high overcast in the low 60's, the nights low 40s. This is a very quiet campground, activities we found at the campground to keep busy was a very nice indoor pool, indoor sauna, indoor spa and exercise room with treadmills. The campground has clean free showers, plenty of hot water and not more than a 5 minute walk from our campsite.
My wife and I enjoyed the campground, we took a trip north to Fort Stevens for the day, geocached and hiked around the fort. Seaside was a fun town, its grown a lot since my first visit there 20 years ago.
This campground has tent and RV sites plus cabins.
We stayed in a cabin. The cabins are tasteful, spacious and clean and come equipped with kitchen supplies, microwave and coffee maker. What really makes these cabins stand out is that they come with bathrooms, no having to walk to the community bathrooms!!
This campground is unique in that it has an indoor pool and hot tub so swimming is possible in bad weather.
The campground is located within walking distance to an outlet mall but you may want to drive to the free public parking closer to the beach.
Not a bad place to stay. some of the buildings are in need of repair. the playground is pretty bad along with the clubhouse. Really close to Seaside and the beach
This spot is was amazing with the family. The RV spots are a tad close to each other with not much landscaping but that’s to be expected with coastal campgrounds mostly. There was a lot of the kids to do, too. We all thought it was fun.
this is a thousand trails resort but you can stay without the membership. you get to pick any spot you want when you arrive. first come first choice.
we had a nice location with some shade.
biggest negative is they charge extra for internet. fire pit. etc.
this place is well worth the money. we went on a non holiday weekend. close to everything in town but you cant tell your close to town from your site. we were at site #141. it was great. plus is that it has all the hook ups and a short walk to the indoor poo;
Having children, the playground and pool are a huge deal when you’re camping at an RV resort. Well, the playground was rusted over and had pieces that were missing to it, the swings were broken as well. The pool was dirty and I was not able to get a hold of staff for assistance the whole time I was there. The hooks ups were fine, but this place really needs some sprucing up.
Close to town. Has a nice pool and Jacuzzi, but not quiet nor private. Noisy from highway and neighbors. We rate it a 6.
Great camp spot, walk within minutes to the ocean!! Lots of Amenities available along the shore, stores, shops, RV park hookups, family pet friendly. Watch your toes!! There's jelly fish & Mr Crabs!!
