Oregon State coastal parks are generally well laid out, large, clean with good access to the beach. This one is no exception. All site have 30 amp power, water, and parking is paved and level. There is ample room for tents and some extra parking in each loop. The showers need to be updated/repaired but they are acceptable as is. Access to the beach is well marked and an easy walk over fairly low dunes. The trail is also well marked from the beach side so retuning is also easy. We like the location within easy driving time to Canon Beach to the north and Tillimook to the south.

We have stayed here the last 3 years and have enjoyed each visit. The sites are very generous, room for 1 or more tents, pads are mostly level and all sites have electricity. There are some full hook-up sites mostly in the center with limited view of the river. The park is fairly compact though and the interior roads offers enough up and down for a nice walk and a good work out. The shower/restroom is central, kept very clean and really not large enough if the park is full. There is a dump station with a single port just outside the entrance with easy access from both directions. They have installed a new fresh water filtration system so the available water is excellent. Next to the park is a marina and boat launch and a very large and well maintained county park with lots of space to play, or walk you dog. Wind can be an issue here and you need to factor that in when choosing a site. Sites on the south and east catch most of the wind. There are multiple trains passing close by day and night which will be an annoyance for some or a romantic reminder to others. All in all this is a great spot for all ages and all equipment.

Enjoyed this park even though it is strictly dry camping. Easy trail access, well maintained trails and restrooms. Great views the Strait of Juan deFuca and spectacular sunsets. Easy access to the Dungeness Spit. Our site was spacious and sunny so we could get DirecTV. Access to the internet (Verizon) was via Canada which is expensive. Dump station is near the entrance and turning around proved difficult. Reservations can be made via snail mail with a check, but cash is required for all other nights. We will stay here again.

We stopped here after dry camping in Kalispell for 6 days and it was like heaven. Site was both long and wide, level, and a good view of the golf course. Staff was great both checking in and at the golf pro shop. The golf course was fun for a duffer like me - just a few challenges and easy to walk. Streets were very wide and it was quiet at night. We plan to stay here again.

Very clean park with many permanent residents mostly on the edge of the park. Interior sites were mainly pull-through and easy to enter and exit. Hosts were awesome - very helpful, knowledgeable about other camping opportunities in Oregon. Park is on a hill, so if you like a good walking workout this is the place. Showers were clean as was the laundry room. Close to the freeway, but noise was minimal. We would stay here again.

We really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. Easy access, with both gravel and lawn parking area. Utilities were set up a bit strange, and we only used electricity. No cell service, but we were able to access DirecTV. Really enjoyed talking with other campers who were all there to fish the Salmon or Snake River. Owners are awesome. They also run a jet boat business running up through Hells Canyon. We plan to return there and do that run when the temps are a bit warmer. We drove our car from there to the Snake on a 30 mile one lane gravel road through Nez Perce and really enjoyed the spectacular views.

This park has easy freeway access so it was a bit noisy. It is close to the river which was nice. All the spaces were pull through and the location of the utilities was perfect for us. We had a nice open spot so we could use our satellite dish. Wifi was average speed and easy to access. Staff in the C Store were less than hospitable. They made us feel like we were bothering them when we asked a question. The laundry room was clean and we were able to do one loaded (wash and dry) for just $2. While the park was nice the staff left a very negative impression and we will not stop here again.
