South Jetty RV Park offers something so many parks do not and that is the feeling of nature. A short distance from the city of Florence and you find yourself in a forest. What is truly nice is that the feel of nature has not been demolished with slabs of concrete at the sites. I loved the gravel and privacy of each site. This is a Thousand Trails park but the general public can use the park. I am a Passport America member and was welcomed really nicely. Staff at the office were not only friendly but provided a great deal of information and answered so many first time visit questions. They even accommodated my special request that I truly appreciated. One must stop in at the office, pay fees, register and then go pick out your own site. You are given a nice map detailing which sites are water/sewer and also locates those that are full service. The majority of the sites are larger than most RV parks, have far more privacy and give you the nature feel. Bathrooms are clean, warm and located in nice locations. Garbage dumpsters were located in areas that were convenient. I did not see any recycling containers and that was a bit of a disappointment. A children's play area and a pool/hot tub open during summer months are located near the lodge. There are two lodges and one is adult only. The one thing that will certainly have me returning for future visits is that the park is located 2.1 miles from the ocean beach. This is one of the longest stretches of beach front in Oregon. The 2.1 mile walk from the park is not an easy one. There is very little shoulder on the road. Drivers seemed to be moving slow and courteous when i walked to the beach. If you want a great park to escape the cement, city lights and chaos of city life this is the park for you. My visit was in November and there was several locations under going repairs and work. That did not impact my visit in a negative way. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.
Drive the entire camp ground before picking out your site. You pay then pick a site. I am sure they would let you take a tour before paying. The newer C sites by the yurts and cabins on the hill have the most opportunity for sunshine should the Oregon Coast have it during your stay.
