To close for comfort

Small campground, I feel it’s too close to the highway because of the road noise and loose pets or even small children could wander to the edge of the highway.

Decent back up

Stayed here once because no other places available. It was clean, but a bit loud, and no privacy. It is a few miles from Mapleton, and right next to the highway. The area is very beautiful and the creek is nice. I didn't hate it, but also did not love it. I recommend going to clay creek or Whittaker creek if possible.

Perfect last minute campsite

Wayside campground just outside of Mapleton, OR. We stayed here when we made a last minute trip to Florence, OR and all other campgrounds were full. This is a Primitive campground with no hookups. There is a small restroom in the park, but no showers.

There is no playground, but its located a long a small creek that my kids loved playing in with their sand buckets.

Overall a nice place, when you need a place to stay near the coast.

Beautiful Wayside, loud camp

This campground is finally reopened after being closed for a few years. It is a beautiful setting and they have been restoring the riparian zone surrounding the creek/river. Unfortunately, the road is very loud and the main route to the coast from the southern Willamette valley. There is little between the campsites and the road in the way of sound barriers. Maybe in the coming seasons more greenery will grow and block some of the road noise.
