Great park and reasonably priced. Access roads are a little narrow. Good variety of site sizes. Great view of the ocean from the day use area. No access to beach from the park, but it's an easy 1/2 mile walk from the gate. Camp hosts very helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park in a super location - beach. We only saw one pull-thru site, so plan on backing in. Lots of good sized sites. One caution about this park is getting to it from US101. From the south, our navigator took us on a very narrow and winding road called "Seven Devils". All paved, but a bit tight for a big rig. Google maps said to take Newmark off of US101. VERY steep hill going west from US101 on Newmark. Signs there limiting the use of the road to less than 15000 GVW. The best thing is to call the county on the number listed and get their directions. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice county RV park and beach area. A wide variety of sites all up the hill from the beach - some very small and some very large. First come first serve only, except for groups in a special area which can make reservations. Park sits high off the beach with a great view of the beach from their main day use parking area. No Wi-Fi but good cell phone coverage with major carriers. My type of place - lots of grass, room to roam, things to do and peaceful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Spent two full days at this park. We stayed at the "group" camping area at the top of the hill. The first night we were totally alone then another fifth wheel showed up for the last two nights. Sites are very level. The approach is asphalt and the site is concrete. The bathrooms in the group are were closed this time of year because of previous vandalism. All the other bathrooms were open. There are also two dump stations on site since there are no sewer hookups there. There is a nice playground and beach access from the park. Nearby is the town of Charleston where you can probably imagine that the send people from the witness protection program to disappear. There are a lot of nice restaurants on the waterfront. If you are looking for something good but inexpensive, go to the "Sea Basket." We had fish and chips there and it was pretty good. There was a killer rain/wind storm the last night we were there and the trailer shook a bit. Regardless, it was a great place and very quiet. I would give it a ten but there was no Wi-Fi or sewer hookups. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Since it was after October 1, the rate had dropped to $15. We stayed in the open group camping area at the top of the hill. It was great for satellite reception but there was a strong storm one night and the wind really blew up there. The bathroom/showers in the group camping area were modern, spotless, large, and private. There is now a very strong Verizon Extended Network signal in the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This county park has 56 RV sites with water and 30 amp power, plus 35 tent sites. There are a couple of pull-through sites, but they are in the group camping area. We use the group camping area (available if no groups have reserved all the sites there) most of the time we stay at Bastendorff because they are on the top of the hill with no trees, so there is good satellite reception. These sites are huge. The other RV sites are big enough for any rig and are surrounded by trees, giving excellent privacy. The central dump station is convenient to use. There is lots of area for hiking in the woods. The beach is not within walking distance. There is a big playground for kids. There is no Verizon cell service in the campground, but there is just down the road (Extended Network area). This is our favorite park in the Coos Bay area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While this is the type of park we describe as "a parking lot with hookups", the location, huge sites, price, and friendly staff make it one that we look forward to visiting when we want comfort and convenience in the Coos Bay area. The pull-through sites in the center of the park have room for any size RV, a tow/towed vehicle, and a large boat. The other sites are larger than typical RV park sites. It is easy to navigate the park with a big rig, and the 50 amp power doesn't suffer a voltage sag under even heavy loads. The laundry is quite small, but the machines work well. Over the summer, there was a rash of thefts in the park (mostly bicycles and fishing equipment), so they have install combination padlocks on the pedestrian entrances to the park. That's something of a nuisance for walking the dog, especially since they have changed the signs in the park from "Pick up after your dog" to "No dogs on the grass" since the last time we were there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is a big parking lot that works well for serious crabbing & fishing folk with a great set-up for cooking/cleaning crab. Sites are level and boats can be parked right next to your rig. Very nice rec room for gathering. Heard there have been issues so now gates have combo locks on them, but also heard law enforcement is addressing problems. We've stayed here several times to crab and will continue to do so. Staff friendly and helpful. Right next to marina and very short walk to shops. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Everyone was nice and helpful. However, it is like camping n a parking lot, all squeezed together. Within walking distance to the docks where you can crab. Many nice people on the docks. Apparently they are having trouble with non-rv people using there facilities and had to start locking the gate to the docks. Got a little loud at night being so close, then the garbage truck at 2AM. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is set up for crabbers and fishermen with cleaning stations, marina and boat launches at the park or nearby. It's pretty much a parking lot with RV hookups and close quarters but good for serving the fishing public. Owners are nice and helpful. Pets are allowed but must be walked outside the park to do their duty. Nice little fish markets and cafes nearby and geocaches if your into that. I would stay again if fishing in the area. More scenic parks nearby if you are just vacationing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park to stay if you are interested in crabbing or fishing. You can walk to the docks to crab or book a fishing charter within walking distance. The 30 ft back in sites are very close to your neighbor. Next time we would get a pull through or a 40 ft back in. Laundry is available for $1.25 for a wash and approx $1.oo for dry. Rate is $115 for a week. Since you are on the shore, there is a lot of fog, but we did see the sun. Wi-Fi is available at $7.50/day. We would stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed for the month of April: was very exposed to the weather elements, rain and winds gusts 30-50mph. The park's facilities are open to all including the fishing boat crews, laudromat very well used. The 30 foot sites are very uneven. The woman running this park is adamant about taking your dog outside the park for a walk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great RV park for sportfishermen and those who love the sound of sea lions. Located a very short walk from the harbor and close to seafood restaurants. Yes, it is a big parking lot and does cater to fishermen with a wonderful set-up for cooking and cleaning crab/fish. Nice recreation room for gatherings. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We did not enjoy this park at all. The spaces are very tight and hard to maneuver trailers into place. Park personnel were not particularly friendly nor helpful. If you stay here you better enjoy your neighbors because they will be parked about a foot away from you. This park seemed to be mainly for fisherman and guests don't seems to care much about noise or being courteous. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is similar to a parking lot with many long term fishermen rigs. There was one line of trees for the premium sites. The bathrooms were in need of immediate maintenance with peeling paint and broken tiles. The woman in the office was not inclined to be helpful with our mail that got forwarded. The best part of this park is its location right on the harbor with many fish and chip places available nearby. There are three state parks within 5 miles of this park for photos and trails to walk. No activities or other facilities were available. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Like every other marina RV park we have visited, this is essentially a parking lot with hookups. The sites, however, are very large, there are mature trees in the park, and the location is great--right on Coos Bay. Easy access for any rig. One of our neighbors had his 40' motor home, large cabin cruiser, and a pickup on his site, with plenty of room for awnings and the picnic table. There were smaller sites available for two and three dollars less. Good quality 50 amp power. No WiFi, but Verizon finally has EVDO service in Charleston. We plan to come back several times this summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As mentioned, you drive in past a few long-term resident sites, but they are in their own separate section up close to the road. The rest of the park is close to the beach and really beautiful, with well-kept grounds and lots of green grass (we visited in late April). It was incredibly quiet, with the only sound being the ocean surf, which we could hear right from our RV. The pull-through sites are huge, with no disconnecting of the car required and wide grass areas between sites. The 50-amp power was rock-solid with 120 volts on our voltmeter regardless of load. The sewer connections are excellent: flush to the ground for continuous downhill draining. The beach is huge, isolated and beautiful, just a short walk down the park's private paths through the dunes. We were greeted by the friendly manager who answered all of our questions about things to do nearby. We would have given the park a perfect 10 if not for the unpaved roads, although that was a pretty minor issue for us. This was our second time here, and we were not disappointed either time. We will definitely come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What can I say. Owners were pleasant, quiet campground, utilities good, TV good, Wi-Fi excellent. Probably the time of year we were here but they don't water the grass. The roads and sites are dirt and very dusty and close together. Nothing nearby. The beach is not one of the better ones Oregon has to offer, but you can walk to it from campground. Big crabbing area so a lot of boiling pots in campground along with the smell. Some long term residents and they show. We won't return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is a "gem" in that it is fairly inexpensive for one that has great ocean access and is well maintained and well run. As far as I'm concerned, the only thing keeping this campground from being a "10" are the gravel roads and sites, I can't think of anything else important that could be improved. Even though the sites are gravel they are carefully raked smooth every time a site is vacated. There are quite a few sites long enough for any big rig and there is plenty of room to turn and back as required. The Wi-Fi is fast and strong and there is a strong Verizon signal as a backup. There is cable and most sites have easy satellite access. In addition, the managers are a really nice couple. As has been noted in a previous review, the beach is super for kids, is shielded from the breeze and is totally private. Fresh seafood is available a mile away. We have already reserved a site for next summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We happened upon this park on our drive down the coast, looking for a place the kids could go play at the beach. The site we had was huge, easily a pull through with our toad attached. We had full hook ups, and the Wi-Fi worked well. Shower house was only about 30 yards away and they were clean. The beach is fantastic. It is one of those beaches you can be 50 yards out and only in waist deep water. At low tide, really fun tide pools were there to explore. Our kids were delighted, and at the price, we were too! We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is like a campground with lots of sand and dirt, although it is nicely maintained. They even rake the sites each time they are vacated. We like the park because it is close to an incredible beach, just over the dunes from the park. The sites are spacious. There is excellent WiFi and good cable. It is not conveniently located for an overnight stay as it is about eight miles from Coos Bay, but if you want an extended stay, it is worth the drive. We will be back probably for a lot longer next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here 3 nights in our 5th wheel this year. Have stayed here in previous years. Our site was clean: did not see any garbage like a previous reviewer saw. Beach is great: dogs can run but need to be kept close due to other people. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The beach rates a 10. We also encountered older, run-down RVs that appear rather permanent at the front of the park, which was almost filled. They made room for us in a tight back-in spot and we were unable to get one slide out due to the proximity of a tree. The previous "guests" left trash and bagged dog waste in and around the fire ring and on the narrow strip of grass on our site. The folks next to us had far too many people on one space and left their trash out over night, which the critters managed to litter all about. As mentioned previously, the dumpsters were beyond smelly, and the dirt here was the dirtiest dirt my dogs have ever tracked into the coach. Roads were bumpy and dusty with barely visible speed bumps and ruts. Propane was reasonably priced. Their tent sites near the beach would be spectacular in my opinion. Wi-Fi and Verizon signals were slow. We would stay again, but only because of the awesome beach access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The entrance is a little off putting, but past that to the newer spots next to the dunes, and it is very nice sized: back-ins and pull throughs, good hook-ups, strong Wi-Fi. But, walk through the dunes a few yards, and WOW: a magnificent ocean beach, dogs can run without leashes, absolutely breath taking. If you are in the Charleston-Coos Bay area this is absolutely THE place to stay. Our 92nd park since we left Tampa and one of the very few we gave a 9. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is nice with grass between units. While not on the beach, all sites are within 100 feet of the beach behind a wind break. We stayed in a 43' Motorhome and had plenty of room. This is probably the nicest park in Coos Bay. Do not follow your GPS to get here! Call the office for directions. For some reason GPS takes you through a residential area, on s totally round about route. The manager said this happens all the time! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park's location directly on the ocean is really great. It's nestled into the dunes and you can stroll right out onto the beach from your site. Since the beach basically "dead ends" right next door at Yoakam Point State Park, there is very little foot traffic coming through, so it feels like you have the whole place to yourself. The campsites are level, clean gravel and plenty big enough for our 4-slide, 43-foot motorhome. Since our last visit, the new manager has transformed the place into a really welcoming environment. She has a great attitude and made us feel right at home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites are on gravel, more or less level. You might need a board under the wheels. The gravel sites are somewhat narrow but there is enough green space between the sites for your slideouts and awnings. The hookups are OK and worked fine. The Wi-Fi was excellent. It is with Tengo internet; it's fast and reliable. The restrooms were clean, but a little dated. The proximity to the beach is world class - if you like the sound of the surf. The downside of this park is the picture it gives from the road when driving by. Unfortunately, that is where the older style RV's with the longtimers are parked. Once you are past them, you are in a perfect location. We will definitely come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of our favorite parks in Charleston. The park is gravel and it's on the beach so it gets a little dusty and dirty, but it has the best access to the beach and the sites have quite a bit of room around them. They have everything you need to clean and cook your crab if you go crabbing, and have a lot of the essential things in their store if you forget something. The park is not within walking distance to grab a bite to eat or pick up groceries, but there's a neat boutique store and a wonderful restaurant within close driving distance in Charleston if you unhook your tow vehicle. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though we had reservations, we almost bypassed this park when we saw all the trashy perm-rigs surrounding the office, but we persevered. All interior roads and sites are sand/gravel and not in the best of shape, with narrow strips of grass between sites. The park was advertised in the Escapees directory as a discount park, but wouldn't honor any memberships (found out later that they had requested to be dropped but it wasn't processed yet). Once we were past the office, the park opens up into a couple of loops with mostly back-in (a handful of pull-thrus mixed in) full hook-up sites. Most sites were occupied by shorter-term visitors, especially people focused on fishing and crabbing (watch out for the awful smell from the dumpsters). Wi-Fi was operational if not speedy, and we had no issues with utilities. The best part of the park for us was the beach access, right on the other side of a series of low dunes. We'd probably stay here again just for that. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was disappointed with Oceanside RV Park. They advertise cable TV and WiFi. After registering and paying for 2 nights we went and set up camp. We watched the Superbowl and then tried logging onto the Internet. We were not able to log on. I called the office and they stated that they had been having some issues with service and we didn't get it in our RV spot. They stated we may get it in another location. So, I drove around the campground and found another spot that did get Internet service. After moving our trailer to a new spot, we noticed that we didn't get all of the cable channels we were supposed to. I called the office and they stated that they were having problems with service. Needless to say we were pretty disgusted that we were not told this when we registered. The next day we tried to move to another campground but were told that there were not any refunds. I guess we should not have paid for more then one night in advance. The campground is in need of updates and cleaning up. We do not plan to return to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is a wonderful park, and very charming. It isOceanfront -- what more can you say!! Absolutely stunning location. The friendly staff had made brownies :) Lots of families and seem to be a lot of activities planned in the yurt clubhouse. I am not sure if they were open to everyone or if it had been reserved. The only thing we didn't like is you can't get a space year round because they book solid years out for the 4th of July, so if you're not reserved you have to leave. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived just as a tsunami alert had been declared and were informed we may have to evacuate, so the first night was a little stressful. All was well, though, and we had a pleasant five night stay. As previous reviewers have noted, the cable was poor but we were able to get a few local stations on the antennae. We were at the beach end of the park and could not get any Wi-fi signal. From speaking to a few local people it was clear this site is one of the most popular in the area. Given there is direct beach access, the sites are roomy, and its generally quiet, we can see why. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was in the big-rigs book and I am not sure why. We had a last minute reservation: the park said big RVs not a problem. Took 20 minutes to get there from 101, through a downtown area then a series of winding, narrow roads. Arrived to a dirty dustbowl on the ocean where we were (in our 43' MH) by far, the biggest thing in the park. Mostly travel trailers, tents and smaller Class Cs. Pulled through our site, which was no where near long enough to accommodate both MH and tow, went around the loop, and back to the office. Not our thing, I guess. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good private beach RV parks in my experience are tough to find but while not spectacular this place is OK. Most sites have ample room with enough space to relax and some sites are very close to the beach though none have a beach or water view. Interior roads gravel/dusty with gravel RV pads, each site has a picnic table and firepit. Ground cover varies between sites from sand, to dirt , to dry grass and some with green grass. Overall park has light landscaping and minimal grass but with an interesting non-cookie cutter layout. WI-FI OK - cable TV poor quality. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our second visit to Oceanside, the first was two years ago. We stay at this park because of the beach. The park itself is older and showing wear. Sites are gravel and/or sand. We liked our site: had a nice fire ring, picnic table and easy access to the beach. Wi-Fi did not work during our visit. Garbage dumpsters were always full. We enjoy the drive down the Cape Arago Highway to view all the seals and the occassional whale. Be very careful about the local sea food fare: lunch was $40 and horrible. Propane is available as are other staple items at their office store. If you don't mind a more "rustic" park, this is an excellent place to enjoy the ocean. All the campers were friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This RV park is within a short walking distance to a private beach and much nicer than most we saw in this area. Some sites are close together and I would have liked a bit more gravel as we tracked in a lot of sand. WiFi connection was very good and cable TV available. Park even shows a selected movie in the evening on the park channel. Place was kept clean and the staff was friendly. If there were long-term guests, it does not show. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great campground with easy beach access. The grounds were clean and neat. I could tell they care about how the park looks. There is a small store at the entrance for the basics but Coos Bay or Charleston is a short drive. The beach access is private and there are picnic tables with fire pits down by the water. If you're camping with a group there is a little central building were you can have group gatherings. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Enjoyed our stay at this quiet, truly oceanside, park. Short walk to beach and pet friendly atmosphere made this place very enjoyable. Fire rings were appreciated and picnic tables were in good condition. Wifi was good and rate seemed very fair for this location. 45 minute drive to the Oregon Dunes NP for dune buggy rental. The park filled up quickly on the weekend, so make a reservation if your stay includes one. Only one washer and 2 dryers did not seem to be enough. My husband used the showers which cost a quarter for hot water. That said, we really liked the place and would return if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked it here. It has more of a campground feel than an RV park. Nice wide spaces. Close to the ocean (only 235 steps from our rig. Bathrooms and showers weren't that great but then with all the sand it's to be expected I guess. We chose not to use them. Summer is a busy time of year and people create a lot of trash. They only have one trash dumpster and it gets picked up only once a week. It got to overflowing and the people who were parked close to it were very aware of the odor. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of our favorite parks on the coastal route. Very popular in the summer, reservations are a must! The WiFi quit after the first night, but the cable offered a local movie every night. Great access to the ocean, with a very private beach, used only by those in the park. Picnic tables above the tide line for those eating al fresco, as well as at individual sites. Very wide graveled sites, lots of privacy and room for tow vehicle. Very friendly, accommodating staff. Small store and propane available. Close to some great sea food restaurants (five minutes to Charleston). Park is very near the harbor entrance and wide open, so satellite service is good. Not much shade, but usually a brisk breeze to compensate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park was fine. Next to beach, so sand was easy to track into RV. WiFi worked the night of arrival. Yet the next morning the security system of their WiFi system would not allow accessing their system. Called the park office seven times after between 8:30 and 9:30 - No one answered!! We had to leave without having time to personally resolve THEIR WiFi security system. Too much security for simple wireless access. Make sure you get satisfaction on WiFi before you pay! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park managers were friendly on check-in. Free WiFi is available throughout the park which is good (be sure to get a coupon on check-in). Level sites with picnic tables and fire rings (firewood is available for a fee). Good hook-ups including good cable. There is a charge for the showers. This is a great park with beach access at the end of the park. Quiet at night with no road noise. Very handy to "Shore Acres" State Park which is fabulous with their gardens and views. I would have rated this park higher except for the dusty and dirty roads throughout. Note - the office is only open from 9:00am to 6:00pm. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We really enjoyed this park. It is a little deceiving as most of the sites are in the back and not viewable from the main road. All sites are gravel or sand but with plenty of room for slides, awnings etc. A short walk puts you on a gorgeous sandy beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a small office/store. Propane available on site. A short drive to view seals, whales, and a lighthouse. This was our "destination" park and we were not disappointed. We will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Arrived at this park on a Friday afternoon without reservations and were checked in within 10 minutes by a very friendly and helpful attendant. Park offers free WiFi which works well, even in the spots farthest from the office...we were in space 35. Short walk to beach. Chose this park based on other reviews of this park on this site, and was not disappointed! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We're from California so we really cannot see the the campground location as deserving a 10. The beach is just ok compared to southland beachs. The sites are in the open and nothing special. It seems to be very popular with local folks but we left early for greener pastures. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stay here every time we travel between Washington and California. The sites aren't shaded, but there are trees. Lots of sand, you are very close to the beach. Wonderful modem access area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice, spotless, teeny tiny park on the harbor in Charleston-by-the-sea, which is more or less a suburb of Coos Bay. This is a very small park - only 10 sites, sites are small and close together but the park is immaculate with nice landscaping. The owner/managers were some of the friendliest people that we met on this trip. The sites are paved and very level. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. No crappy, rusty looking full time set up's here! There were a couple of fairly large 5th wheel units here, but I don't think that a big Class A would fit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
