Not sure what these reviews are about, since I live a 15-minute walk from The Devil's Lake Campground. It is a very popular Campground for families oh, it is a safe Campground, and although we have a lot of Travelers and coming through every summer, some of which are people hiking the Oregon Coast Trail so unless you look at their gear you might assume that they're homeless when they're really not. The campground was closed during covid do to funding shortages but is now open. It is very clean and well-maintained, not my style of camping however the spaces are fairly decently sized and it's a typical State Park. Put your head on her lap there isn't any sketchy businesses that I'm aware of, there is a cultural center in an art gallery plus the tourist strip of small shops. The weather here in the winter is brutal so the paint takes a beating. People love this campground with close proximity to the beach, river and a lovely playground, swim area at Devil's Lake just a few minutes drive away.
