I found this park to be clean and well maintained but no recent upgrades. The WiFi in the park is excellent and that is not always the case in our travels. It is a very quiet park with just the basics needed to stay. The bath house was clean to start with, but I think my family was the only one using it, so we just cleaned up after ourselves and made sure it stayed that way. Aside form a small rec room with exercise equipment, TV, library exchange and a table for lots of puzzles on the shelves, there are no other activities here. That being said, it worked well for us to park for the week and explore the dunes, Florence and even took a trip up to the outlet malls in Lincoln City and the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport. They did offer us a discount for cash, so you may want to ask about that.

First a warning about cell phone use. Depending I suppose on your carrier, but for us with Sprint Data plan, our modem phone was picking up the international signal, and we were charged the extremely high rates until we were sent a warning from Sprint that is was occurring, and we turned it off. Now the good, I'm a history buff, and hiking around and exploring the old WWII bunker sites was fun. The hike to the top of Striped Peak is a "healthy" work out, but the view is fantastic. Other hikes worth checking out are the paths to the rocky shorelines and tide pools. The roads along the back-in terrace sites are narrow, as noted. My 33 ft class C got in, and with some wiggle a similar size 5th wheel got into a middle terrace spot as well. There is only one pay shower stall per gender, (25 cents for 2 minutes), but even with a large school field trip camping, I didn't find a wait at the gate. We arrived early afternoon on a Friday, and by that evening the park was 80% or so filled. This still being the slack season, I suspect getting in without reservations will be difficult in the summer.

Most of the earlier comments are still accurate, but felt some comments needed updating. A few sites are not cable ready, so ask. You can walk along the creek to get to a bridge, so you don't need to wade or use a boat, but it is a half mile to the beach this route. The owner apparently is not investing further in upgrades, but the on site manager is doing the best they can to keep it clean, and presentable.

A previous reviewer noted the soft sand, and I was worried, but stopped to look at it anyway. It is a Passport campground, and I like to use them when possible. I can see that the sand can be worked up after heavy park use, and for some big heavy trucks, that could become a problem. My class c did not have trouble navigating the access roads, and the wide pull-through site. The site is not level, so be prepared to add boards, or work your set-up a bit to find the sweet spot. That being said, the staff was friendly, the bath was older but clean. The view out over Honey Lake is great, and the park quiet and relaxing.
