Awesome Location, Great Walking/Bike Path, Great for Kids!

What a great spot. You can now book online. Great for families. You can easily walk to the beach. Awesome paths for walking or biking. I would tow the kids around in a bike cart and we could ride up and down the pathway, under the Newport Bridge (it's safe), to the Jetty and near Rogue Brewery!! Love this spot. Good public bathrooms, power and water hookups. Dump station there but no sewer at your camp site (only draw back), otherwise it is awesome!! The outer edges of the loops are better for bigger RVs, travel trailers.

Large, peaceful, family-friendly

We stayed here in a tent. We were with a groups spread over multiple sites, and it worked really well. We were next to the playground so the kids could play while we kept and eye on them. Nice clean bathroom/showers. The trails to the beach are so great! I didn’t have my bike with me for this particular trip, so I rented one at the campground - a wonderful amenity to have! The bike paths are great, and of course the stretch of beach the park is on is nice and wide open and a great way to spend a day!

Enjoyable, Clean, Oregon Vibes

Nice grounds, several bathrooms. Near a great walk path (paved) and easy access to the beach. This is a great campground and very kid friendly!!

This is a BIG campground

Part of South Beach State Park, the campground is a great base camp for the entire Newport area. The camp is extremely well maintained, and the hosts obviously take pride in their work.

The sites a little on close side, but provide adequate space. There’s an excellent playground for the kids and the beach is 1/4 mile down a paved trail that is handicap accessible. The trail system also gives access to the south jetty, a small convenience store/restaurant, the Oregon aquarium, and the Hatfield Marine Science Center. Hatfield is a part of the Oregon State University system and is free, but accepts donations.

The south jetty is a good place for spotting starfish, crabs, and anemones. The beach is relatively clean of debris and has some opportunities for finding shells and marine fossils.

Average Coastal RV type park

I have stayed here a few times mostly when the kids were younger, but recently stayed here in a Yurt.

Its basicalky a RV type place..crowded sites, no privacy  and tons of screaming kids.

Its clean and there are some trails ( one very easy ) to the beach which is quite nice.

The hosts are excellent if busy.

The Yurt was great , but be prepared for the fog horns going off all night on the jetty.

Good for RVs and kids,

Crowded but nice

South Beach SP Oregon Site B1 Memorial Weekend Crowded but nice. Some loops very narrow rods and lots of kids on bikes. We were in a back in end site. A bit more room but beach access walkway next to us meant a lot of foot traffic. Large open beach with small waves. Access is ADA friendly. Level asphalt pad. Minimal privacy from trees but they do provide some shade. So.e skeeters but not to bad yet. Large trees at rear or site. Average bathhouse close by. CG has yurts, and tent sites too. Great restaurant close to SP has fresh crab, salmon, halibut and cod. Right next to it is a fresh cherry stand

Fun at the Oregon coast

Located just south of Newport, this is a really great place to stay. Good spots to camp. Clean and spacious.

South Beach Campground~ Newport

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.

Large and crowded - book in advance

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.

Perfect location for coastal exploration

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.
