We drove 30 miles up the coast in our toad to check this place out before trying to make a reservation because of two recent very negative comments at Yelp and Trip adviser. We ended up NOT make a reservation. First of all, RV Park reviews needs to downgrade info on this park. 87 sites?(more like a dozen) Big rig?(unless 32'is a big rig), no tv? Upon arriving, sign (handwritten)on office door, "No cable TV", we counted 9 rvs in various sites in the whole park and we were told for our 38 foot MH, only 2 were available (partial H/U)? They boast 87 spots, well most of the spots they had pulled a picnic bench in the way. When we asked about any of those we were told they were not available. The access roads are 60 feet wide, I just can't see where two 40' to 45' motorhomes wouldn't fit back to back. One site we drove by the water was spraying out of the bottom of the upright city water pipe, site blocked off. The management older woman and man were stiff, somewhat cordial but not accommodating (we were a week ahead of Labor day). Although we never mentioned neg reviews and we were there for the first time. Not sure if these two are owners or managers, but we would hate see other RVers make a long drive to just be disappointed. You will NOT get to pick your site. They do it for you and all of sudden 70-80 spots go down to 1 or 2. The only reason for all of this is expenses and maintenance or upgrades to water, sewer and electric are not in the cards. That being said, the number of sites at any given time are limited. It's a shame because they are so close to the beach with access and great ocean views.
Not previously listed with RVParkReviews. So we took a chance. And got lucky. Nice quiet park, hookups were good but just 30 amp. We did not use the water or sewer. Very laid back park, lots of full timers. Out of 30 spaces only 5 were available when we arrived on a Monday afternoon. Cash or check only. NO credit cards accepted. Met the owners, very personable. They have a manager who comes around to sign you in once you pick your spot. Luckily at 39 feet we took space 39 and parked front facing the lake so we used an extension cord for the 30 amps. Worked out great. We would camp here again.
The rate is now $45 plus taxes; it comes to almost $50 per night for sewer, water and 50 amp electric. So, we paid $199.80 for 4 nights. No discounts at all for Good Sam, RPI, etc. No TV hookup, but we have satellite. Water pressure was over 80 lbs so I used my regulator and kept it to 55 lbs. We were in space #2 and had nice view of the harbor and was very level; just dropped jacks and did hook ups and we were good to go. You'll probably need at least 15 to 20' sewer drain hose. We used two tens to hook up. Water and electric were close.
Just stayed there 7 nights dry camping. Place was booked heavy for MLK weekend. We managed to grab a first come first served spot, of which there are only 20-30, and some are only deep enough for small trailers or tent trailers. You are allowed up to 10 days in those spots. Very close walk to the beach. Most sites are reservation sites which have to be made 10 days in advance. Those sites have the best views of the bay and Pacific Ocean. The rate is now $32 plus $2 per dog. Dump station is $7, any credit or debit card. Check in was cash or Visa, Mastercard, no American Express. They just repaved with new asphalt, except the campsite areas. The turnoff from the highway all the way to check in and the main road is all fresh, very nice. Satellite service with our Kingdish was spotty, but AT&T air card worked great. Would stay here again.
Stayed two nites. Good 50amp electric, cable tv, water pressure around 50-55lbs. Good wifi reception even though we were near the dog run area in pull through. Concrete pad was level and didn't require much to level. Nice pads on side to sit out and relax with chairs and table. 5-6 foot trimmed hedges for some privacy. We are RPI members but they do not allow the discount rate if you are over 35ft, so we paid the regular rate. Good Sam discount covers the hotel/motel tax. Not much to do in the area if you don't golf. However we enjoyed the dinosaur fossil center a few miles south as well as wine tasting and purchasing pistachio nuts at local nut farm market. All and all a very nice, clean park with secured gates in and out. If in the area we would stay again.
The rate cites is based on the weekly rate. We are paying $46.20 plus $2.20 per night for our dog. If you stay a week they give you one night discount. Off season is Oct 1st to April 1st. So when we called a week before our stay, they had room for us (tried to stay here during Thanksgiving but they were booked up). Holiday times you will need to book way, way in advance. So, the web site information and rates are currently accurate. Good utilities, 70 lbs water pressure, no hiccups with 50 amp electric. Staff does a good job maintaining grounds and bathrooms. Office staff is very social. Short walk to dog-friendly beach. We've stayed here several times, most recent was two years ago. We would stay here again.
This is a good overnight stay when pulling a toad. Just pulled into site and remained hooked up after a long day driving. Plenty of signs to find the RV park on I-5. Easy off and on. The site was level gravel with plenty of room for our 3 slide outs, just dropped the jacks. Electric was 50 amp and water pressure was 80-100 lbs. Just purchased an adjustable water pressure regulator so that was a good test. Had no issues with any of the utilities. No frills like pools, spa or cable. Check out at 12 noon. Buffet was pricey, but it was Sunday night ($55 for two adults and two grandkids).
We like the fact the sites have ocean views, most that is. Staff very accomodating and friendly. Manager was able to give us the site we requested from our reservation and even extended our stay one day. No signal on our AT&T cell service. Sites are not exactly level, although paved. Two to three plastic blocks on ocean side made us level. Plenty of room from your neighbor. Restroom and showers were clean and stocked with paper supplies during our stay. Very high water pressure 100 lbs, so use a regulator/restrictor.
Very accommodating managers. Our first site, we couldn't get level for the 3 slides. They were very gracious and moved us to another site that worked perfectly, and worked with us until we were set up. 60 lbs water pressure, we had no problem with the electric, cable or Wi-Fi. The previous posters mentioned freeway noise. Didn't bother us at night. Gravel and grass sites. Bathrooms, laundry were older but clean and ready for travelers.
This is our home park, part of the KM Resort system and affiliated with RPI, etc. We like this park because of proximity to Lincoln City, Pacific City, Cape Kiwanda, and Oregon coast. The fairly recent changes in office and park management staff are a positive. The dollar a day reflects members rate with cable TV. Overall, hookups were fine with 60 lbs water pressure, no issues with electric or cable. Grand kids used the pool and playground equipment.
