The first reviewer's comments get it right. I'm guessing this park was designed by someone who doesn't do RV camping. Either that or the designer wanted to discourage folks from camping in the park. If a big rig was trying to enter or leave you could get trapped in your corner of the loop until they were finished. The elevated sewer connection was icing on the cake. Positives include fairly level paved sites and friendly park staff. We might camp here again, but might consider camping outside the park on our next visit
Friendly welcome from the staff, level gravel pull-through sites (most are pull-throuigh). Free easy-connect Wi-Fi (a little weak at our site but adequate). Only negative would be freeway noise, but this reflects the easy access from the freeway. We would gladly stay here again
One of the best parks I've stayed in, especially since I have 2 energetic dogs. The sites are large and grassy, with trees at each site, level sites easy to back into, great Wi-Fi connection. And there's a 4-mile long level trail along a lovely river adjacent to the camp. My dogs were in heaven.
We had a great site in the back of the park, where there was a lot of shade. Sites nearer the beach were more open and probably more affected by wind. We also noticed a lot of mosquitoes near the beach at twilight, but none at our camp. Kayaking on Netarts Bay was OK--but be sure to check the tide tables because a lot of the bay is mud flats at low tide. I launched my kayak from a site about 3-4 miles from the camp. I think I would have enjoyed it more (and had deeper water) if I'd gone all the way in to the little town of Netarts to launch, about 6 miles away.
A spectacular setting. Sunset Bay itself is spectacular and there's great hiking and wildlife viewing nearby as well has some spectacular gardens. Most sites are very well shaded. Nearby trails along the rocky coast are amazingly beautiful and a joy to us and our dogs. Although the camp is across the highway from the sea, there's a pedestrian tunnel under the highway making it safe for kids and pets. Some sites are tough to get into with a trailer, and the booking website will let you know which ones might be tough.
We brought our trailer to Cedarville just to explore the area. We knew nothing about Surprise Valley or Cedarville. The motel had several pull-throughs for trailer and was dog-friendly with a large open area nearby for off-leash dog walks. Susie, one of the owners, was very gracious, friendly, and helpful. (I'm not sure about the rate--I believe it was around $20 but it could have been less or a little more) The best thing about the trip was the people, both in the motel and in Cedarville. Everyone wanted to talk, ask about our plans, and give advice. We were told about free hot springs and advised where not to go because of recent rains and muddy conditions. The town has a couple of friendly grocery stores and "Surprise"--an Internet cafe and local hang-out. The valley itself is spectacular in a wide-open-spaces way. Towns are small and far apart, there's bird life and wildlife of all kinds, and there's a lot of early California history as well. It seems every time we stopped to ask directions we were treated as special new friends and were treated to more suggestions for fun.
