Just on the outskirts of Newport; right next to the ocean. Leave your campsite for the day and just explore what Newport has to offer.
This is a very large campground, with a mixture of RV/Trailer, tent, and yurt sites available, some with hookups. Large campground with a lot of families, etc. so not the quietest spot. But a great stay as it is central to trails and places to see in area. Trail from campground (multiple) lead right to the beach which is awesome. Full bathrooms and water onsite. They also have a little shop with some merchandise and snacks, ice, etc. They have bikes for rent (free i think) for guests there. They also have a free dump site available. This place books quickly so look in advance. I was able to book a spot a few nights before but not for more than a night and ended up moving around to different spots within the campground during my stay. Also good spot to bring dogs.
Your perfect home-away-from-home to explore all that the central Oregon coast has to offer. Miles of beaches are within walking distance or a short drive. The Oregon Coast Aquarium (fee charged), Hatfield Marine Science Center (free), Rogue Brewing and Distillery, restaurants, shops, and a marina are only a mile or so down the road, all accessible via bicycle path from the campground. Newport has several neighborhoods to explore. Reservations are necessary during the summer. Open year-round. Sites for rv's, trailers, tents, yurters, and large groups Dump station on site. Restrooms with showers. Multiple campground hosts.
I'm from the Midwest and came for the ocean. Any time I can listen to the surf while I am sleeping in my tent I am happy. Short walk to beach. Reservations are a plus.
We camped here in May. It had little privacy and a lot of mosquitoes.
This camp ground is clean and offers private shower stalls with lockable stalls. We did have a mesquites problem that’s why I didn’t give it a five but otherwise very nice.
