This park is no longer in existence. The State of Oregon bought it and tore it completely out, making it a beach-access day-use facility only. The Motel is still there and operating, but is owned separately by a private owner and is now a separate property from what used to be the RV park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Unfortunately, this campground has been taken over by the State of Oregon. It will be a day use area only: no campsites available. We were hoping to go and camp, now it will be impossible. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Located anyplace else this park would get a poor rating but the location is outstanding. We are there now, parked in a spot just 50 yards from the surf on a beautiful flat sandy beach. It is spectacular. The grounds and facilities are clean. On the down side the park is suffering through a transition that has diminished its appeal to those seeking full services. The owners are trying to sell it but possibly because of cash flow problems have closed attractions like the trout pond and deferred some maintenance. Biggest problem: the sewer system is temporarily (?) unusable because it does not meet state environmental requirements. I fear the property is ripe for redevelopment and may not exist as an RV park much longer. Enjoy it while you can but come with empty holding tanks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was at one time a fantastic family park. About the only part still in use is the strip on the ocean front, which is the only redeeming feature. (Only about 40 or so sites.) We were originally lured here by their website, which touts the wonderful amenities such as a trout pond, general store, game room, archery range, etc. When we arrived we found a ghost town. The store & game room have been closed for at least two years. All that's left of the trout pond is a bog. Many of the washers and dryers in the laundry room are broken. The dump station is closed and there are no functional sewer hookups available. The shower building is falling apart. Yet, when you look at the current website, you are led to believe that all these wonderful amenities await you. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I disagree with the above review, we really enjoyed this park. It's a rarity to go to a park where they let you select your own site. True the sites are all side by side, but you are rewarded by a fabulous oceanfront view. You can sit in your RV our out under your awning and watch and listen to the crashing ocean waves. If you love the beach and beachcombing, or flying a kite, you'll love this park. The roads are gravel but easy to get around. We parked on the opposite side near the park host, a nice and grassy area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Oceanfront sites have no sewer, which are the majority of the sites in the park. Sites are VERY close together with absolutely nothing in between them. Showers are pay, bathrooms are the bare necessity with no soap. Modem hookup is a pay phone data port by the road that needs an 800 number to work. They accept cash or check only, but want a credit card to rent a movie (they have no cable or antenna stations), yet another camper who was there for a week said she paid her spot with a credit card?? We checked in at 11:15am and were told we could have the site but could not connect the utilities until 12 noon--penny pinching? Great oceanfront, but not resort camping. Wind blows constantly and VERY dusty and dirty park. Advertises Visa/Mastercard, reservations accepted & shuttle to town of which none are available! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
