Great campground and $20 cheaper than the other option I found in Cannon Beach. Full hook-ups. No tents allowed. Paved spots with surrounding grass and lots of trees. 10-15 minute walk to the South end of town, a bit longer to get down to the boutique shopping and more dining. 15 minute drive to Ecola State Park with great view points, hiking trails and a beach where surfers frequent. 2.5 mile Clatsop Loop was beautiful. Loved the large expansive beaches. Found easy parking at Tolovana Beach.
I went in April and there were a bunch of open camp spots to choose from but I imagine it fills up in the summer months! They offer tent, full-hook up and electric. The sites were all paved with lots of beautiful, tall, shady trees. Nice, clean bathrooms with showers. Access to lots of walking and biking trails. The beach was just a short drive from my spot in Loop G. Cool shipwreck to explore on the beach plus the option to drive on the beach, driving access is just a bit South of the shipwreck. Both dirt and paved biking paths all over the campground and park. Coffenbury Lake has a 2-3 mile dirt path around the lake. Looks like a nice spot to paddle board and I saw some people fishing. There are great views of the Columbia River, with the huge ships coming and going, in the historic area of the park (Civil War Fort and Batteries). The CG/park is a 20 minute drive to Astoria. Ate at the Rogue Brewery and grabbed at coffee at Pier 39 Public House.
Beautiful, peaceful campground open year round on the Metolius River, about 15 mins. from Camp Sherman store. Only a few sites are large enough for smaller trailers/RVs (7,11,12,9 &13). It’s mostly tent spots. No Verizon service but a 5 min drive back up the road to the view point gave me 2 bars to check in with family. Hiking trails start along the river from the campground. For a day hike I drove 40 mins from camp to Black Butte trailhead and hiked to the top. Amazing hike with epic views of the Cascade mountain range, although the trail was still pretty icy/snowy(bring yaks). I also drove to the Head of Metolius for a short stroll down to the river on the paved path. The camp ground water hadn’t been turned on yet and the vault toilets were well maintained. Fee was $19 per night.
Small RV park, easy to navigate through, super helpful staff. Decent wifi and convenient mini mart. Each site has a small picnic table and fire ring. They offer restrooms, showers, and a laundry facility but I didn’t use them. Fairly quiet aside from some periodic road noise, overall peaceful setting. My favorite aspect was the walking proximity to Heceta beach(10 minute walk). The beach is very expansive! If you head South you can walk down to the jetty and a section of sand dunes. Only 10 mins drive from Old Town Florence for a nice selection of boutique shopping, restaurants and coffee places.
