We stayed here twice as our first stops leaving “home” when we started full-timing this summer. Both stays were quite, with plenty of things to explore around the property.
Pro’s: The back-in and full time sites have ample space for those looking for a longer stay, but the pull through a usually aren’t full so they provide decent space as well. Activities everywhere! There are pavilions and out buildings setup with games, hammocks, and all kinds of fun family-friendly things to see and do.
Cons: The grounds were “under construction” while we were there so there was occasionally some tractor/dozer noise. Some sites were unavailable due to them being revamped.
Collectively it was a very good experience. The staff was very friendly, and even put us in a nice long term stay when there was a booking error, so we ended up with a huge spot near the creek. I only take off a star due to spacing of the sites, but I would stay here again.
We originally booked one night thinking we were just going to pass through before heading back into the city (Portland) so that I could work easily the whole week (Monday-Friday). We got in about an hour before sunset and decided to just unhook the truck and head straight to the beach without unpacking (we full time).
The views of haystack rock in the fog provided beautiful colors against the choppy water. We went to Ecola state park the next day and it didn’t disappoint at all. Sunset provided some exceptional photography with just an iPhone X.
We decided to stay for the whole week since the WiFi has been decent (2-5Mb) with no real latency or packet loss. I use a router to repeat the campgrounds network with our same WiFi name that our devices always connect to, and allows us to all use a VPN without having to install anything. So far our service has been good, and the campground is very quite except for the waves across the street. Since the campground is up on a small hill, the sounds of the ocean aren’t obstructed like when you’re down in town.
So far we’ve only tried Sleepy Monk coffee, but it was also very good! The coffee was very strong and had great flavor, not weak. The salmon bagels were fresh, and the donuts were basic but good.
I will update after our stay ends.
