Not your typical KOA ,but for us that was a good thing. Most sites had good privacy and are located in a heavily wooded area. Many sites are long and work for big rigs. If you have slides on both sides it may be a tight fit with trees but plenty of space between the next RV. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were clean. The pool and hot tub were nice. There were free nightly mini train rides and a morning pancake and sausage breakfast for a fee. There is a large fenced dog run. The store is well stocked. Check in was fast and friendly. Our site was level but some may need a few blocks. The WIFI did not work well at our site, but there was a good Verizon signal for our MIFI. Some sites had basic cable TV. The setting is like a state park but with more amenities.

This is a very large and busy camping park. The park staff were very helpful in helping us extend our stay. Check in was fast and friendly. The park and restrooms were clean and well maintained. There were trails for biking and trails to the beach. The sites were roomy but privacy between sites was lacking, there are a lot of trees but not much low brush to provide privacy. The park is very close to the Oregon Coast aquarium and handy to the town of Newport. The park staff and campground hosts were great.

This is a great state park. Our site had full hook ups. The privacy is good for most sites. The park and restrooms was clean and well maintained. There were programs each night we were there, and the hosts went around the park and invited everyone. There were trails for hiking and biking and trails to the beach. The park staff and campground hosts were friendly and helpful.

Probably the nicest park we have ever stayed at. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The grounds were well kept with green grass, many flowers and nice landscaping. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were deluxe and clean. There were too many amenities to remember including a game room, club house, hot tub, exercise room, nightly community campfire, Friday night happy hours with free goodies (BYOB) escorted parking, free newspaper delivered to your RV daily and more. The beach access is several blocks away through a tunnel and on the other side of the highway and down 77 steps. The only possible negative would be that some sites are a bit short and you may have to park your tow diagonally in front of your rig or in the parking area. I have to repeat that that the staff were friendly and welcoming.

This park is not fancy but was a pleasant surprise in a dry high desert area. The grass was green and nicely kept and the lake views and access were nice. There is a boat landing and piers for fishing and the people who were fishing had very good luck. We were allowed to pick the site of our choice. The lady at check in came across as gruff but was not unpleasant. There are no discounts available and I thought the price was a little high but there are not many choices in this area. The bathrooms were clean but older. All in all we had a pleasant stay here and would stay again.

This is the nicest park in the area. You will likely need reservations during the peak season as it was full including the overflow during our visit in August. Check in was fast and staff were very pleasant and helpful. The park has many amenities including an indoor swimming pool, game room, camp store with fair prices, 1st class laundry, gas and diesel fuel and more. Everything was clean and well kept and staff couldn't be nicer. The sites were of a reasonable size and modern utilities worked well. Most sites are well wooded. A great park, but expect it to be busy with kids and dogs every where. Haystack Rock and Ecola Beach State Park are both stunning and should not be missed. Go to Haystack Rock at low tide and you will see incredible sea life in the tide pools. This is a great park and we would stay again.

This is a pretty basic park but it had direct access to the ocean and a long sandy beach via about a 2 block long trail through the dunes. You cannot see the ocean due to the height of the dunes but you can hear the waves crashing. Check in was easy and the lady at check in was very pleasant. The hookups all worked. The shower, bathroom and laundry were older but clean. The cost was reasonable for an ocean access park in this area. The sites are larger than the parks in town and it is in a very quiet area. The WIFI worked well. Our cable TV was usable but snowy. Good Sam and veterans discounts are available. This park is not fancy but is quiet and peaceful and we would stay here again.

This is a pretty basic park, there many full hookup pull thru sites that are suitable for big rigs. There are back in water & electric sites and several tent sites. Check in was easy and pleasant and the lady that checked us in gave us a map of the area and suggested several local attractions. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were clean. The WIFI worked well. You have to use quarters for the showers. The park was well kept with many flowers planted. The park is close to highway 101 but the noise is not too bad. We were happy with our stay and would come back. Good Sam and veterans discounts are available.

This is a smaller state park on a small river in the mountains. The camp hosts were friendly. There are campfire rings and picnic tables. There is a short hiking trail and several river accesses. There are about 6 sites that are suitable for big rigs. All sites have electric but no water or sewer. There are no showers, so I had to swim in the river. There are several first come first serve sites, and the rest can be reserved. You self register if you don't have reservations. We saw deer in the park.

Very good for the price. Check in was easy, and owners friendly and helpful. Sites were narrow, but long enough for the biggest rigs. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were very clean. The park was pretty basic but did have a nice swimming pool. It was far enough from the freeway so traffic noise was not an issue. Cash or check only, no credit cards are accepted.

This park is part of the city park system of the city of Oak Harbor. The actual rv parking area is not fancy but there are full hookups in good condition. There are also picnic tables for each site. The park is first come, first serve with self registration. You must pay by cash or check the very reasonable rate of $20.00 a day. The RV park adjoins a very well maintained city park on the bay. The grass is watered, green and well groomed. There is beach access and a boat ramp. There are also extensive paved walking trails along the harbor with many benches and picnic tables. There are several playgrounds as well as a swimming lagoon and many other amenities. The park is located near 2 large grocery stores and many shopping and dining opportunities. You can walk downtown and to the marina. We enjoyed our stay here so much that we wrote a thank you email to the mayor and park department.

This is a beautiful heavily wooded state park. There are beautiful ocean & sunset views along the bluff trail that starts at the campground. While the views are beautiful very little of beach is accessible due to the high bluffs. Some but not all sites are suitable for big rigs due to a lot of very large trees. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The office was seldom open but staff were seen frequently checking and maintaining the campground. If you have to self check in be sure to check the board at the check in station for available campsites. The showers take tokens that can be purchased from a vending machine at the check in station. All the campsites had a picnic table and fire ring and the campground host kept the sites clean. We enjoyed our time at this park and would stay again.

This is a very clean & well maintained park. They water the grass so it was lush and green. The sites were roomy and long with the utilities in good condition and well located. There are no sewer hookups. Our site was level and paved. The bathrooms and showers were clean with everything in good working order. You have to self check in, be sure to check the board to see what sites are available and for how long. Verizon had a good signal but there were no TV channels available off our antenna. This park is located along a clear scenic mountain river that is a very pleasant place to relax and watch the water go by. They also have several well groomed hiking trails and a nice playground for the kids. There are fire rings and new picnic tables. The price I listed is for a premium river site. Sites off the river are less. They also have 2 brand new cabins for rent, tent sites and a group site with shelters. We enjoyed and extended our stay here and would come back.
