Be advised that this park is setting up to charge for electricity for monthly stays. You're allowed up to $65 of electrical use in the monthly rent, and anything above $65: you'll be billed for! Nice campground as long as you're on the side of the lake with cement pads. Same price for gravel pads on the other side of the lake. What's up with that?? The $1,000 a month for a narrow cement pad on the lake is ridiculous and it shows as no one is using them.

Because of the design and width of the pull through spaces, I would say that this place is NOT big rig friendly. I can't put out one side of my slides because the site is too narrow. Since this place is next to the river, the wind is a constant 35+ mph and it's dusty! Better off finding a rest stop or a WalMart . Way over priced for what you get.

We booked here as we thought this park was Big Rig Friendly. Really is not. Our rate was based on one of the camping clubs we belong to; apparently there are few spots that would accommodate us. We were put right up against the very noisy and busy road, site number 43. Directly across from us is a much longer pull through; ours was a back in which is virtually impossible to get in. If you are longer than 40' then please request that you not be given this site. I have no idea why this park has gotten such high ratings, unless all the live in guests have given high ratings. The "spa" is a whirlpool-type bathtub in the bathroom at the check in office. It's a hollow door plywood partition from the office and "quilting bee" area. Definitely would not pay to use the tub. Appeared clean, but too close for comfort. Cameras apparently in use to make sure you clean up after your pet. Pet area is a 25 ft. X 40 ft. (approx.) sand area with an open bucket to dispose of dog waste. Not pet nor big rig friendly. I would bypass Coos Bay altogether if I had known.

This is our favorite park out of 60 or more we have visited. Beautiful sites, you feel like you have your own "back yard". Even on a Holiday Weekend, the park was full, but there is so much room, we never felt crowded. We would stay here anytime we visit Southern California.

Great spot to view "Morro Rock". Tight spaces which wasn't really a problem as most everyone here was very friendly and there are fences separating most sites. Dog walk is a joke. It's a short (50 yard X 15 yard) area of dirt. There is an adjacent spot to the supposed dog walk which could and should be an extended part of the walk. So many dogs here you basically wait with your dog until the 2 ahead of done with business. Also, because of the dirt, it really needs mulching. Dog walk issues may not interest some, but there are lots of us that would like a decent spot to walk our pets. Quiet hours end at 8:00 am and at 8:02 Saturday am there are already screaming kids all over the campground. Management seems to not care. Love the town, but would not stay here nor recommend this place.

We wondered why so many people travel to Southern Texas for the winter, so we did ourselves and we still don't know why! Staff was very friendly, sites were just OK width. I know the weather can't be controlled, but the wind blew at least 40 mph every day we were there. Easy access to border, but we would never travel there again.
