Restroom's had toilet paper all over and standing water on the floor. Sink's and toilet
were filthy. I wouldn't walk into them they were so gross. The campground was unkept with old machinery around the perimeter. Their description said, "surrounded by river on 3 sides". Yes, if the tidewater counts! We did not stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly and helpful staff. Older park with 20 + RV sites in front and about 18 mobile homes in the back. Power is fine, WiFi & cable are trouble free. Spaces are not large but sufficient. Some are deeper, others not very deep. Although near the road, it is quiet at night. Cell phone reception is fine. Because they rent crab fishing boats, this is an active park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The small overnight travel section was full of Passport America refugees looking for a good deal. The $13 rate (with tax) makes this an okay short stop. Be warned you can't have a really big rig, will need several sewer hoses, leveling jacks, and preferably no need to use their tiny showers. This is a small run down trailer park with a side business for RVers, plus small boats for fishing, crabbing, etc. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good Wi-Fi mostly and 60+ channels on cable TV. Rate is based on Passport America! This is a Crabbing Rental park so be prepared for the boats & people with Seagulls. Dirt/rock sites with mud if raining and medium sites! Not made for large rigs unless you are a really good driver! We camped here with a 31' RV with a 25' tow rig and managed getting in & out without much problems. The staff are friendly also! Would stay again in dryer weather! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have to agree with maneuvering in this park it is tight. Long term residents could be a little neater. I would say this is a Blue Collar camp ground. It seems multiple couples come for crabbing: the aromas! Wonderful. I have been in more expensive and larger parks and did not get the value I received here. It is a good park and I will return in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here based mostly on the price (with Passport America discount), and for $13 for a site with full hook ups, we didn't expect a whole lot. Entry off the narrow, two lane road is very tight. The whole park is tight, and we needed to disconnect our toad to make it in our site due to small radius turns and other vehicles (our motor home is only 31 feet: good luck with bigger ones). Staff is very friendly and helped us with parking. The whole place has a "fish camp" kind of feel to it, with crab boats, cookers, etc. available at extra cost. Showers weren't dirty, just not what I'd like to call clean. Leave your flip flops on. Wi-Fi worked fine. I'd love to come up again as a "guy's trip," and do some crabbing (they say September is the best time), and for that, I'd stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was a good surprise. It is about 6 miles from the town of Tillamook and easy to drop in on the French Cheese Company, and the Pioneer Museum. Many of the people at this park reside there full-time but it wasn't a problem and the telephone pole is not a problem if you swing to the right side of the driveway. Best of all you are 2 miles from Oceanside and meals at Roseann's are the best. For the price we would stay here again as it is quiet and the owner/manager is helpful and friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This friendly campground is right on US HWY 101 across the street from Netarts Bay. The campground is not large and some of the interior turns are tight, but can safely be done with a large RV. For us, this proved to be a great location to branch out and see much of Oregon's north coast. The other campers here, as well as the manager/owner were friendly and helpful when we asked about local attractions. Big Spruce Campground is clean, quiet and we felt safe for the three nights we spent here. We will look forward to returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The access for large rigs is inadequate! Maneuvering for large rigs is poor due to the way customers renting boats park while doing the required paperwork, and the way the rental boats are parked. The roads are gravel sites are dirt, narrow, and not very level, The access is very narrow, entering from a busy narrow road. We were told that 3 coaches in the last week had been damaged by side swiping the telephone pole on the right side of the entrance. I can not recommend this park for anything over 30'. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although the park is listed under Tillamook, it's actually six miles west in Netarts. The park is extremely tight, with little room between rigs and a tight turn to get into the portion of the park we stayed in. The roads were gravel and the sites dirt. Many seasonals; some of the RVs there will never go down the road again. The park appears to be a "fishing park" as some people had boats and talked about going fishing. As an overnight stop, we found the place adequate, but wouldn't want to stay any longer. The park Wi-Fi worked very well, as did the cable TV hookup. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older park with lots of permanent residents. Bathrooms and showers and laundry were clean. Friendly and helpful owners and staff. Great WiFi and cable TV. We would stay again for sure. Right across the street from the bay. Our price was with Passport America. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a typical fishing campground. Good for 1 or 2 days. Spaces are tight for big rigs. The laundry room was marginal (2 washers, 1 dryer). This campground is listed in the Passport America (PA) Directory as being in Tillamook, OR, however, it is actually 6 miles West of Tillamook. The PA rate is $11/night, but is not available in Aug/Sep. The cable TV was very good and the wifi signal was strong. Make sure you take a trip to the Tillamok Cheese Factory if you stay here. FUN. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Older park, tight sites but great for one or two nights. Located on 3 Cape Loop so nice place to park then take the Loop, and into Tillamook for the Air Museum and cheese factory. Nice helpful people. Fresh, just harvested oysters available very reasonably. Have boats, crabbing and claming equipment available for rental. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We actually paid zero because my husband is a disabled vet. Nice park but for mosquitos. We stayed inside. The sites are fairly close and some sites had to share fire pits. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Watch out for the potholes on the county road leading to the park. Park roads and site pads paved (good condition). There was a pretty beat up table on the site as well. There is a notice posted that budget cuts have forced some deferral of maintenance. Our site pad was not level, but I was able to fix that. All hookups worked fine. No Wi-Fi or TV. That hardly mattered as this place is for relaxing and walking the beach. For that it gets a 10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paved roads and sites. Good power. They have shut down the loops by the beach for the winter but the loops with power and sewer are still open. The rate reflects the winter rate. Verizion MiFi works well here. This CG is well located to check out the sites in the area. The showers were clean but it was just a push button shower and all I can say was that it was warm but the ambient tempature bathroom did not encourage you to hang out in the shower too long. The trash is located by the front gate so it's a bit of a walk to the reycyling center. I'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate include reservation fee. Visited park in a very extreme storm with 50 mph gales. The sites do hold water and there can be blowing sand, but good wind break. Road to entry (Whiskey Road?) is somewhat difficult to drive, but may have been the weather. Park is somewhat isolated. No Direct TV signal and weak AT&T cell/air card. Am sure the beach is nice, but was confined to RV due to weather for three days! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for one night after a horrible stay in another park. Stayed in D-loop with awesome access to the beach. Site was a bit tight to get into due to brush, but at the same time, the brush provided privacy. Rangers were helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The county road leading to the park has definitely deteriorated since our last visit here two years ago. The state park roads appear to have been repaved for some of the loops. Our site in D loop was a paved back-in and needed some boards for levelling. All utilities worked fine. No cable or local TV, but satellite TV from our site (D9) worked fine. Some maintenance around the park has not been done due to government cuts. Due to the fantastic beach and superlative natural areas this is one park we will always want to return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great Oregon State campground with full hook-ups. During the winter one of the loops is reservable and the other is first-come. One of the loops is closed because it floods. The roads are a little tight but not bad. There are only a few sites with satellite access, but our Verizon phone and air card worked well here. The beach and trails are wonderful for walking and there are many activities in the area. We would definitely return to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location, but needs some maintenance especially pruning. Many older trees were hanging too low and into the loop road where we camped and some sites one could really scratch your RV if you're not careful. Sites are faintly close together and maneuverability is okay but fairly compact. We got the last site which had our sewer right next to the picnic table and fire ring - what a view. The non-hookup sites were newer, cleaner, had grass and fewer trees which would be nicer during cool or rainy weather, so pick your site carefully. They'd closed some of the loops closest to the ocean for the season, prematurely I think, as all the hookup sites were full on a weeknight. No comment on the bathrooms as I didn't check them out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great Oregon state park -- very popular. The RV sites were all taken so we stayed in a site that didn't have any hookups. No big deal since we only stayed a couple of days and the site was great as it was close to the beach and large enough to comfortably handle our 29 foot rig. Access to the beach requires you to walk over 20 yards of ankle breaker rocks. Depending on your ability it might be something to consider. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 5 nights and very much enjoyed it. However, coming from Nehalem Bay State Park we realized that this is an older park. Nothing wrong with the sites, they even had sewer, but the restrooms are definitely dated. They were about as clean as you can reasonably keep them but the overall picture definitely makes you keep your flip-flops on in the shower. The Virgin mobile service really sucked and almost only past midnight I was able to get some data through (phone and internet). The beach access is great, the roads are all paved, some sites have more trees and some sites are pretty open. Wind and rain can be a real hassle on certain November days as we had to find out. For bigger rigs you might have to search for a long enough site for your RV and tow, however, we didn't have a problem with a 35' 5th-wheel. The hookups worked fine and are the usual style as you find in state parks. We will certainly return if again in this area but will choose another provider for our phone and internet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Another great park at an excellent price. Not far from Tillamook if you want to take some side trips. We had full hookups with sewer, some sites are electric and water only. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Did not have reservations so had to take a 'dry' site, which was fine. Convenient beach access and good Verizon service in the A-loop. Not as scenic as some other Oregon State Parks and off the beaten path so may be not worth the drive for just one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice state park that is really close to the beach. Sites are grassy with paved pads to park on. Vegetation separates you from your neighbor. Unfortunately the spots are very tight and difficult to get in. Our spot was at right angles to the roadway and with people across the way we had an extremely hard time getting in. Fortunately getting out was easy because the people across the way had left. This is not a big rig friendly park and we are only 36 feet! For someone with a smaller rig it would be a wonderful park to stay in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love Oregon state parks. We were able to stay at three during our June trip up the coast with no reservations. This was our second one, and we had the beach just a couple of hundred yards behind our site. The park rangers are very friendly and helpful, and the sites are beautiful. If you can live without Wi-Fi (or bring your own 3G card) and laundry facilities for a little while, these parks are the way to go, and you can't beat the price. The only other downside is the showers which, like most state parks, use the "push button" system where one temperature fits all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate shown is for winter season. Site was a paved back-in and not level. No TV off antenna or WI-FI available. Some sites in D loop are open enough for satellite TV. We managed to get a cell phone signal from our campsite. Our site in D loop a short walk from the beach. When we arrived the wind was blowing so strong it almost blew me over, but by evening it had calmed and we experienced another lovely Oregon coast sunset. C loop campsites are more sheltered, but in the trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were notified a few months after making our reservation that our site would not accommodate tents. What we were not told, however, was that site C57 had a huge tree stump on one site, and another very large tree on the other side. Site description was not accurate as our fifth wheel has four slides and an awning that we couldn't fully open, due to the stump placement. It was challenging at best, and a nightmare backing in as this was perhaps the most narrow spot in the park. The park itself was well maintained; beach access was okay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice state park campground. We were in C loop and the sites were large but close together. Sort walk to an amazing beach, many trails nearby, and the campsite was very quiet at night. Hosts drove around frequently selling firewood and helping out. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best thing about this SP: it's just a 3 minute walk to ocean. FHU are too few so we had to move sites during our stay to a primitive site; next time we'll choose a primitive site in the long loop (A&B) parallel to beach for more room. VZ card for internet worked fine. Oh, with a big rig go THROUGH Tillamook toward Netarts (there is a cut-off just before Netarts proper). The 101 South to the Sand Lake Road (like google directed) is narrow, windy and dippy: very hard on nerves and rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park, ocean is a two minute walk away. Sites can be difficult to back into, but it can be done. Another excellent Oregon State Park, as always the staff and hosts are friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here during our kid's spring break for a week (7nights). We stayed at campsite # C28, with full hookups. The site had a 30AMP hookup with a 110 plug in. Trails to the restrooms/showers were well maintained. The hosts were very friendly. We went here to do the cheese factory, which was only about 15 minutes away (short drive). Since we were here in April, the weather wasn't too favorable, but ended the week on a sunny and warm day. I did manage to find a glass ball on the beach, but found it about 3.5 miles north of the campgrounds, the point was about a 4.5 miles to the north. Towards the end of the week, we managed to see paragliders: about 7 of them come from the cliff face off to the south, what a sight (awesome) and then later landed on the beach where we were. We would do this again, but during the summer months. Can't wait to get back to this place. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Someone stated that there is cable hookup. There is NOT. It's a lovely park for beach-going, and it's close to Tillamook, so it's a nice clean place to camp if you're cruising through to taste some cheese! Full hookup site for $16. Parking spots are a little backwards, so if the park is full, you'll have to go the wrong way in order to park. They also have Yurts available for rental for $45 per night. Very cute. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Wow! Full hook-ups with level asphalt pads for $16/night! Plus, we were close enough to the ocean to hear the roar of the surf coming over the dunes. The camp hosts were helpful and friendly. Our campsite was large and private with a fire ring and picnic table. The beach near the campground is gorgeous, although the weather was a little cold while we were there. It hailed in addition to raining. On the downside, the signage could be better. It wasn’t obvious which sites had hook-ups and which didn’t, how to get out of the park, or where to throw the garbage. But, we found very little to complain about and had a wonderful visit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here for 4 days after Thanksgiving. it was very nice. Oregon State parks are just great places to camp, and so economical. the site was fairly good size. It rained a bit. Mentioned it was in November right. but 2 of the days were beautiful. Great hiking on the cape lookout trail. Close enough to drive to Tillamook cheese factory as well as Pacific City for eats, and the Civil War game. Watch the fog. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
During the winter A & B loops are closed. C loop sites can be reserved, but D loop is first come first serve. Personally I prefer D loop as some of the sites are more open. Noticed a couple of permanently fixed satellite dishes in site D13? so that may be the cable TV shown in the park info? There is no off the air TV available. Pay phone is now close to the ranger station. There are no dumpsters in the loops. You have to take your garbage to the recycle center near the registration booth. The scenery and isolation here make this park one of the best in the state park system. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are here for a short stay, and we love it. It's a bit of a drive out here, and the road to the park is pretty bad (stuff flew everywhere...) but the park is awesome, very secluded, nice, well kept. It's right off the coast too, we walked to the beach from the site in just a couple of minutes, and we are in the interior. The showers at 9pm were too cold to use, so we used our own. We used a FULL hookup site, which is right by the bathrooms, and services worked well. My verizon broadband card had 2 bars here, and good speed, so no wifi needed. I'd stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had a great site in the back of the park, where there was a lot of shade. Sites nearer the beach were more open and probably more affected by wind. We also noticed a lot of mosquitoes near the beach at twilight, but none at our camp. Kayaking on Netarts Bay was OK--but be sure to check the tide tables because a lot of the bay is mud flats at low tide. I launched my kayak from a site about 3-4 miles from the camp. I think I would have enjoyed it more (and had deeper water) if I'd gone all the way in to the little town of Netarts to launch, about 6 miles away. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
My favorite campground on Oregon's mid coast. Clean restrooms, nice wooded sites. The ones near the dune are close enough to ocean to hear the waves crashing. Oregon parks have a great Junior ranger program. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful beach and a very stormy place when we stayed there. A lot of the tent sites are closed for the winter. Hookup sites in D loop are not reservable from what I was told, but in C loop they are. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our third stop on our recent family vacation was the outstanding Cape Lookout State Park on the Three Capes drive south of Tillamook. Hwy 101 curves inland for Tillamook Bay and stays away from the coast for forty miles until it reaches the Lincoln City area. Cape Lookout is on a side road, the Three Capes scenic drive that stretches south of Tillamook along the coast. The campground has over 175 sites. Only 38 have hookups and they are for the most part randomly spaced along electrical and water lines to the bathrooms. This campground is often booked early so you should think about reservations. Cape Lookout is well worth it. Start with the beach--a beautiful stretch of sandy beach near a three mile sand spit that is virtually untouched by commercial development. If you like your destinations more natural this is the place for you. There are also miles of great hiking trails in the park, especially the 2.4 mile trail to the cape. But if you like to drive and visit places, Cape Lookout is a great home base too. To the north is Cape Meares SP with a very nice lighthouse and Netarts Bay with crabbing and shellfish. Tillamook is only seven miles north of the park and is large enough to have all services. The two big tourist attractions are the Tillamook Cheese Factory and the Air Museum. I love the cheese, but really how fun is it to watch cheese being made? The tour is pricey, samples minimal, and the cheese is usually cheaper at the local Safeway. Within fifty miles you can visit Cannon Beach. To the south is the nice town of Pacific City. The Pelican Brewery there has a great restaurant right on the beach near Cape Kiwanda SP with amazing sandstone formations. Only twenty miles south is Lincoln City and more great beaches. We loved Cape Lookout. It is a peaceful, calm place to be. We will return soon and hope to see you there. We stayed in the back of the D loop in a nicely wooded spot with reasonable privacy. There are three large loops at Cape Lookout. The A/B loop runs parallel to the beach. Some sites are 100 feet away. The sites at the far end are some of the best in the park. Closer to the beginning of the loop it is just a large grassy meadow with no privacy between sites. The B loop sites along the back are the best there I think. Both the C and D loops are perpendicular to the beach, but even where we were at the back it was an easy five minute walk to the beach. They are wooded and many are fairly private. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This says their are ocean view sites, we never saw them. There is a sand dune in front of the sites we saw blocking the view, perhaps further down but I didn't see them. The overall sites were great. Nice and level, a little small for our trailer and pickup but we got last spot that day so we were not complaining. The beach is fantastic and beautiful. Kids had an excellent time. Wish we could have spent longer at this park. As usual the state parks in Oregon are great. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great State Park. We have been here several times and always enjoy ourselves. There are all kinds of trails to walk. The beaches are very nice. You have enough space and screening between sites to have a sense of privacy. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of our favorite campgrounds. Located 12 miles out of Tillamook, Oregon in a coastal rainforest. There are 38 hookup sites, 1 electric, 176 tent, 10 yurts, and 3 cabins. Rates for hookup sites during prime season (May-Sept) are $20 night, $16 the rest of year. Can be reserved up to 9 months ahead. The campground is behind sand dunes and has one of the most lovely white sand beaches anywhere. Loops A & B are directly
behind the dunes and do not have trees. Loops C & D are in the coastal forest and have privacy shrubs between them. All sites are back-ins. Each loop has clean restrooms and unisex showers. Several lovely hiking trails in the area. This is a wonderful place! We camped here in a camper.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Nice park on the Oregon coast. wide flat sandy beach, family style shower rooms, very clean restrooms. only has 38 full hookups (all back-ins and some are tight axcess and fills up fast on weekends and summers recommend reservations. The "tent" dry sites near the beach are nice . There is a free dumpsite just outside the campground entrance. We camped here in a camper.
The only good thing about this park is the location, close to the Cheese Factory. Small, gravel only, hard to maneuver a truck and 32FT TT. I will say the staff was very friendly, but the general condition of the park makes us give it a low rating. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you want a pull through gravel site across the street from the Cheese Factory on loud, busy 101, here it is. We were ok with this place for an overnight , although it didn't seem worth $35 (31.82 GS) especially when the shower cost 50c for 6 minutes and is scalding hot, without any dials to change the temperature. Highway noise is painful outside; somewhat tolerable inside. Cable TV was very good. Sewer caps are quite highly set. Hard to recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park and it shows. Price reflects Good Sam discount. Park was clean but needs attention. Lots of road noise. Gravel roads and sites. Green areas and tent sites were well cared for. Fine for an overnight stop only, but if you don't mind boondocking for a night go to the airport park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great channel selection on their cable. Wi-Fi okay. Verizon signal good. This park is good for a night or two. It almost directly across the street from the Tillamook Cheese Factory, a must stop for us to enjoy some delicious ice cream. There is an RV repair and accessory store on the same side of the highway as the park. They have a good variety of accessories. We will purchase some new floor vents from them today. (Closed yesterday as it was Sunday.) This is not a fancy park but it is clean and safe. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this park for three nights while touring the area. It was perfect for our needs. Clean, not a trace of dog waste anywhere, we walked our two dogs all over the park and a clean park is important to us. The cable worked great, the electrical system was reliable and there was decent water pressure. Not a pretty park, we faced a hedge of dirty berry vines next to Hwy 101, and the trucks rolled by all night long. However, after many years of spending nights in RV parks, the noise didn't really bother us. Better a little road noise than noisy next door campers. There are some long term trailers here, but the people all seemed to go off to work during the day and didn't walk around at night. We would definitely stay at this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All gravel sites, but area is clean, level and easy hook up. Site is plenty long enough to stay hooked up to my 31 ft fifth wheel. Cable is clear and WI-fi is included and strong. Great for us for a one night layover. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice little park with very good facilities (FHU, 60+ channel cable TV, and free, at site Wi-Fi). As previously noted, park is just a gravel lot so there is no visual appeal. Very good for an overnight stop and could be used for touring the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is nothing more than a gravel paring lot. No trees, shrubs and no privacy. Located right on HWY 101 so constant traffic noise. Showers are pay (.25 for 6 min). Free Wi-Fi. City ordinance prohibits sewer hose from laying on ground so bring something to elevate it. Right across hwy from Tilamook Cheese Factory (over 30 flavors of yummy ice cream). OK for one night stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is advertised as pet friendly. However, they failed to inform us when we made our reservations and when we checked in that the camp is overrun by pet rabbits that have been allowed to breed freely. They designated an off leash area for the dogs, fenced by a sagging barbed wire. While in this off leash area, one of the rabbits ran through. My dogs, both lab mixes, naturally chased the rabbit. The campground owner was irate, unprofessional and rude and made it very clear that we were no longer welcome. This is NOT a pet friendly park. In addition, camp sites are very close together and the neighbor's sewer connection is literally underneath your picnic table. Possibly a health violation, but definitely unappetizing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK park, but the sites are tight for large motorhomes, and several permanents that could be better kept. Great dog area, and the staff is trying hard, the facility seemed greatly improved compared to our visit three years ago. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice people in the office. Roads are dirt and gravel and some are very narrow. NO Sewer hookups at sites but dump station is available. Sites are fairly level and grass. Lots of trees and they might interfere with satellite in some places. Nice meeting room and patio for groups. WiFi was extremely poor and Verizon service is bad. Park was nice and tent camping area is nice. Dedicated dog areas to let your pooches run. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I really liked this park. It just had a good feeling. Others said the sites were close, but I didn't think they were any closer than most of the parks. Laundry prices were reasonable, showers nice, lots of area to walk the dog. Management was very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again for sure. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not the easiest site to find, as it's about 8 miles south of Tillamook, but it was a pleasant experience. Rest rooms and showers are large and clean, most of the sites are gravel, shaded and level. Cable TV and WiFi worked fine. It's right on a highway but didn't have any issues with traffic noise, in the 2 nights we stayed. While it's a bit further further from town then others in the area, it was shadier, less expensive and quieter appearing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice older park with pull through spots. Spaces were a little narrow with grass between but it didn't cause a problem to get in. Wi-Fi worked well and there is a good laundry and store on site. There was a row of permanents across from us but they were quiet. Friendly staff and maintenance workers. Good location near Tillamook. Would stay here again for a longer time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park for an over night or several days with good, clean sites which are a bit tight between sites. Had an easy back in site with a cement patio. The traffic lanes are wide and gravel with plenty of room to maneuver a 30ft 5th wheel and the 40' RV that was with us. We (4 rigs) were met with a couple of men that told us they would take us to our sites, we should set up and then come up to the office to check in. I gave this an 8 as the shower and rest rooms were not used nor checked plus the closeness of the sites. Would recommend this park to anyone using Highway 101 in Oregon coast travels. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, quiet campground. Trail to the river was great, especially for the dog. Friendly and helpful staff. Rate was for partial hookup, Good Sam discount and Good Sam $5 off coupon. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites are narrow and we did not have enough room to pull through. We had to back out of a pull through site. When we first arrived a loose dog came over and took a dump. Complained to attendant and they asked for a description of the dog. We thought that they would take care of it but it seemed like there were a lot of loose dogs running all over the park with no one picking up after them. When we left, the dogs were still running loose. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great little park. Friendly people. Wonderful showers! (I often wonder why some campgrounds don't realize that I will use less water if the water pressure is as strong as this one, was rather than a trickle that takes forever to rinse out shampoo.) They are unisex bathrooms. They were immaculate as was the laundry which had five machines. The grass at the sites was thick and lush, and there were two dog runs. The one I used was huge and a great place for my lab. I didn't spend much time here, as I was doing a lot of sight-seeing, but I really enjoyed the park when I was here. It's obvious that the owners work hard to have a nice park. It's conveniently located, too. I'd stay here, again, in a NY minute. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is our third fairly extended stay at this park (11 nights) and the only bad thing I can say about it is there's no Verizon cell signal here! We had no problem getting level in our spot and I guess we're far enough back that we can sleep with the windows open and not be kept awake with the highway noise. They have a super Wi-Fi system and the one time there was a problem all it took was a re-set to get it back up again. The staff here is super friendly and eager to keep the campers happy. We'll definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Had an unpleasant experience in Pleasant Valley. Was assigned an unlevel site further away from laundry/showers than wanted, then a 3 generation family with car and truck w/ travel trailer, about 6 bikes, 3 dogs, many kids, pulled in right next to us. Yes, the sites are quite close together and all on a slope, with the hookups in the middle, too far from our dump valves. Rain made the area a mess. Limited cable. Private bathrooms were nice ,but part of the laundry room, and they close it from 12-2, really stupid. We had planned to stay a few days but left after one. Won't stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Appears to be a former KOA park. Sites are "nearly" level but closely spaced. Staff was friendly and helpful. Right off hwy 101 but traffic noise was not a problem. OK for an overnight stay. We would stay here again if coming this route. Handy for a visit to the cheese factory at Tillamook. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The RV park has most amenities. There are friendly staff and clean facilities. The noise from the highway was distracting though. I would stay here as an over-night en route to a destination. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice, clean, quiet and shaded park. This park had the nicest, cleanest restrooms and laundry (W-$1.25; D-$1.00) that we have encountered so far. Staff is friendly. Store on site, but store and office close about 6 p.m. Not near water, but several recreation sites are nearby. Strong Wi-Fi link throughout. Multiple cable channels. We paid $32 full hookups w/Good Sam discount. Some permanent occupants, but neatly kept for the most part. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The Park has the potential to be a great place to stop. However, the sites are so narrow if the adjacent unit has a slide you may not have room for your table let alone put out your awning. When we were their the smell from the dairy farms nearby was very noticeable. We would, however, return because of the location. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Wow, you get a free bag of popcorn when you check in! Plus the very nice camp host gives you some brochures for things to do. This park is about 6 miles south of Tillamook off Highway 101 South. I was surprised at how full it was in September, but apparently this park is popular with the fishing crowd and for RV Rallies. The RV sites are close together, as in, your picnic table is right next to your neighbor's hookups. My slideout was a few inches from the neighbor's awning. If you can overlook this issue, this is a great park to spend a couple days relaxing. There are lots of trees for shade. The park has a store with some canned food and RV supplies if you are desperate. The club room is charming, with a welcoming atmosphere for group parties. There is a nice large laundry area, which includes two commercial sized dryers in case you need to dry a comforter. There are five separate unisex restroom/shower areas located in the laundry area. The restrooms/showers were clean, considering how busy they were. They close the laundry/restrooms for two hours in the middle of the day for cleaning. If you are traveling with children, there is a fairly large playground in the back of the park. Cable TV had a good variety of 53 channels. Wireless worked great! This is a nice, quiet park. Even if the "fishing crowd" fires up at 5:00 AM, this is a brief interruption and you can just go back to sleep. Lastly, they sell propane if you need it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Husband rates this park a 6 due to low hanging branches and open bathroom/laundry design yielding privacy/ventilation challenges. I rate a strong 7 for beautiful ambiance, friendly front office, cleanliness and ease of access to 101. Packed gravel internal roads with grass parking pads. Price noted w/o sewer hookup. Limited Verizon cel/broadband service. This one will appeal to those who are rustic travelers at heart: overlook some rough edges in exchange for a magnificent setting. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This R.V. park is wonderful. It is located close to the coast but far enough away that you don't have the cold wind blowing down your neck. The spaces are a little close. The staff is very helpful and keep the park very clean. 3 very large dog walks with tall grass that the dogs can run and play in. Many points of interest and back woods roads to explore area. 5 miles to Tillamook. Wake up temperature is in the mid 50's and daytime temperatures are in the mid 70's. This is a great find. We started at 4 days and we've been here for over a week. WiFi is real strong. Gravel roadways with grass everywhere else. Bathrooms and Laundry are clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An older park, but well kept up. Gravel & grass, lots of trees. Near the Tillamook river. Had a nice play area for dogs. Some nice hiking trails also. No problem for our 24' motorhome, but longer rigs may have a problem maneuvering through the trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very quiet campground due to mostly seniors in large motorhomes. Motorhomes lined up side by side on cement pads with little patches of lawn between them, each with one little tree. We felt a little "small" in our tent trailer. Very clean and spacious individual bathrooms / shower rooms...very nice for privacy but no soap to wash hands! Laundry facilities were very nice. Lots of amenities like cable TV, WiFi included in price, but if you don't need those extras (like us) there was no discount in the price unfortunately... so we found the price $28 to be high...but overall a really clean and quiet campground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
A very nice RV Park with plenty of shade. The sites are a bit tight but enough room for tables and chairs. Great location close to beaches. The WIFI was not very good, had to sit in the main building to get on line. They have a good store with all of the neccessities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet country setting, lots of trees & grass. Well managed & clean. A little pricey but we were there at the height of the tourist season. The WiFi was inconsistent, most of the time we had to go to the office area to get on the internet. The reason given was they were in the process of getting a better router. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fairly nice RV park with large pull thru sites. Interior roads and sites are mostly dirt which wouldn't be too bad except the three days we were here it rained and we tracked in a lot of mud. Like a lot of RV parks we have stayed at, they advertise WiFi, but it only works in the office. They do have a very nice area in back of the office where you can sit and use the WiFi but it closes at 6pm. They say they are improving the WiFi, but if I come here again I would check other nearby RV parks to see if they have better service before coming here. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is bad, they gave me a place that I was lucky to get in and out of. Too many untrimmed trees, no pavement or gravel, just dirt spaces. Was so bad I got my money back and went to another park. They advertize Wi-Fi but said it was broken. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park as noted before, with nice shade and decent (not great) spacing between the sites. The showers were great and offered unusual privacy. Could have had a party in there. Don't be put off by the smell of cows as you get closer to the place if you're driving north on 101: Pleasant Valley really is pleasant and is away from the dairy farms. This was a quiet place to stay en route to or from the sights in Tillamook (i.e. the surprisingly entertaining Tillamook cheese factory and the excellent Air Museum). The park is not a destination in itself, but is a good, quiet place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very nice campground just south of Tillamook. Although right along hwy 101, there was
very little traffic noise. Formerly a KOA (according to owners, and building design), so some sites are a bit on the narrow side, but not bad. Enough room for slide outs and awnings. Aerial photo on their website is from 1989, at least according to a similar one inside the store that is dated, so there are lots more trees tnan the photo shows. Most sites are well shaded, so you wouldn't need your awning for shade, rather an umbrella if it were raining. Showers are basically a "full bath" setup with sink and toilet in a room big enough to move around in comfortably. We had site B10 and had to back out to leave due to trees and rocks in the way of going forward, but no problems. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 8 / 10 ]
This would be a great park if they would oil the roads. If it's been dry, rude drivers can kick up a lot of dust. Good store and most spots are under trees. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is what it is: a level field next to the airport with no hook-ups. It is dry camping. We used this as our base to explore the area: the blimp hanger (see the future us uncertain), the cheese factory, the 3-Cape drive, the lighthouse, etc. and the coast. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place to boondock. We stayed in our 40 ft class A with no problems. Gravel road and the sites were level. Had lots of room to spread out in the grass, and much less road noise than the other RV parks. You'll find a picnic table and fire ring at the sites, and clean flush toilets at the pay booth. Paying your $10 is on the honor system when you come in, but there is camp host to help you out. Across the street is a fire wood stand that has the best deal in town. 5 or 10 dollars, again the honor system, will get you a big bundle of dry wood with kindling to put in your fire ring for the night. Enjoy! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean park. It's quiet at night; during the day there's some noise from the general aviation airport next door. Sites are gravel and grass, fairly level, with no shade. The gravel areas are narrow, but the sites are fairly well separated. Some sites have picnic tables and fire rings. Roads are gravel and dirt, in fair condition, adequately wide, with some potholes. If the wind blows the wrong way, there's a strong cattle smell. The stay limit is 14 days. Payment is by cash in an envelope. There are 2 centrally-located water faucets plus one by the restrooms. Verizon data service works very well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well maintained but rustic campground, staff friendly and helpful at check in. The roads are gravel. The pad was gravel, long and level. Big rig access was adequate. There is some road noise, and space around our RV was tight but we managed to squeeze our towed in at the end of our site. No shade trees, some grass between each site, and a picnic table. There are a lot of long term residents but their sites were clean and tidy. Bathrooms were old but clean and the laundry small but adequate. Pet friendly, but no dog walk. WiFi and cell okay. Food stores, restaurants and sightseeing are close by. We would stay here again, it's not a destination resort, but fine for a one night stopover or longer to do some sightseeing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel roads could use more gravel to prevent the mud and potholes from being so bad. Mostly long-term residents, with some needing to clean up their sites. Many dogs running loose without leashes, and residents not cleaning up after their pets. Owner/office staff not available during our entire stay. Had to ask full time residents for help regarding issues with our site. Maintenance man was very helpful and friendly! Sites are gravel, with small strips of grass between. Some more level than others. Hookups worked ok, but power waned at times. Water pressure was fine. Great cable TV with plenty of channel choices. Picnic tables were very worn, cracked and plenty of splinters. Park backs up to Hwy 101, so road noise is a problem. Since it was cool at night we kept our windows closed, but would be very noisy in summertime. Restrooms and showers are kept very clean. Laundry room is small, but very clean and worked well. Only $1.25 to wash and dry, and both did a good job. Shopping and restaurants located about 3 miles away on Hwy 101. Verizon cell phone and Hot Spot service worked very well in the park. If visiting in the area, would stay here again. The choices are limited in Tillamook, and this park was the best of those we checked out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park, the sites are gravel with grass between. The space between is good, the roads are maintained as is the rest of the park. It shows that the management cares about the park. The people are great. We will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Charming RV Park with shaded sites, lovely flowers and helpful hosts. I'd have given it at 10 except for the noise from Highway 101. We were right on that back row against the highway and those trucks just kept on moving...all...night...long. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice little basic park. Pads are long and level and with a nice rock base. Hook ups are conveniently placed. Good amount of room to maneuver. The park has a large number of cable channels and WI-FI. The shower, restroom, laundry facility is small, but kept clean. The park is well maintained and landscaped. It’s on the city limits between Tillamook and Bay City so you’re about 5 miles from the city center of either town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a simple park with level, pull-through, gravel sites and good electricity, water and sewer hookups. The WiFi worked well using network "hotspot". The bathroom facilities are older and well used but clean and neat. The showers require quarters. The noise from Hwy 101 is pretty noticeable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice RV park--gravel roads and sites with grass plenty wide enough with picnic table. Wi-Fi was excellent and good Verizon cell. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed the park and area. There is a cheese factory here for tours, an aircraft museum and a beach you can drive to in 20 minute drive. We would definitely stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park, but kept up very well. Facilities are extremely clean. Great place to stay with lots of places to explore around the area. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed for 4 nights. Very nice small park. Very friendly staff and owners, Close to the hwy but not a problem. Large pull through sites, level, good room between sites. Very clean park. If you are looking for a park with pools and lots of thing for kids to do, this might not be for you. Great tent sites if you are a tenting person. Reservations are a good idea. Park fills up quickly in the summer. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is very close to Route 101, but we did not find it noisy or bothersome. It is between Tillamook and Bay City so nothing is within walking distance. The shower rooms were very clean, unisex,and the water was HOT. However, the showers do cost - a quarter is for 3 minutes so most showers cost 50 cents unless one is very fast. Also the showers are separate from the toilets which is a cumbersome arrangement. The Wi-Fi was fairly fast, especially for an RV park, and easy to connect to. We were here for a rainy two days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park and owner. Sites are pretty level, and yes the sewer is far back so you need an extension, but no problem. Plan for it! We like this park and the Wi-Fi and cable TV work fine. We recommend this place to anyone visiting the area. It is very convenient to Tillamook and the coast. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our first nights sleep ended when the people next to us started loading and hitching their boat to go crabbing at 4:30 am. The noise didn't stop for an hour. The second night it was the loud radio in the coach behind us that played all night that kept us awake. The owner was very apologetic and we did not hear the radio again. We had to back out of our pull through space because we couldn't maneuver around the tree, sign and tied down awning of our neighbor. Sewer hook-ups are at the very back of the space, not good for some trailers. Showers are average clean and pay operated. Laundry needs better cleaning. Bugs and spider webs around window, in addition to the dirt build up on vents and hot water heaters show that they have not been wiped down in a very long time. There is a gas leak in the laundry. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice small park located 5 miles north of Tillamook. Very nice manager greeted us. Good free Wi-Fi. Good Verizon and AT&T cell coverage. Roof top satellite friendly. Our site only had 30 amp power but that was fine. Our daytime temps were in the 50s. Sewer connection is at the rear. I had to use an extension and just made it. Be sure to tour the Tillamook Cheese factory. Lot of fun! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. very quiet in the park, some road noise but close the doors and windows and its quiet... Very clean restrooms. Great owner at check in, lots of local info and things to do. Very good experience, would stay again. Excellent Verizon, satellite both TV and internet. Park has WI-FI free but did not use it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed for three nights. The park is small but very well kept. The owner/manager always seems to be working on the facility. A little difficult for big rigs to get around, but once you are in, there is a good spread between sites. Not much highway noise from 101. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked great. We have U.S. Cellular and the signal was strong. If we came through this area again we would stay here. Probably the best site in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is actually in Bay City instead of Tillamook. It is only a few miles to the north. Reviews are quite accurate. Bring extra lengths of sewer pipe as the sewer is at the threshold of the site. Our neighbor must have 35' of pipe out. We would stay here again. We stayed 9 days so rate was week + 2 days at Good Sam rate. There are many parks in the immediate area with one even at the Best Western Hotel so you have many options. We were able to receive mail and our Verizon broadband worked well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed three months in a motorhome as the location to Garibaldi and Tillamook was good. The WiFi averaged a weak two bar signal and T.V., reception was fair. Close to very busy Hwy101 and noisy. Gravel and dusty roads in park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park that's not really a 7 rating -no extras except cable TV- but since it's inexpensive for the area, and was a good stop for several days, we're being generous. Manager was very nice and helpful. Paying for a shower is a hassle, the sewer hookup was way back, and the daytime traffic was loud, but we liked our level, grassy pull-through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate was with GS discount. Overall a good CG. Unpretentious, with very pleasant and helpful owner. About 1/4 occupied by longtermers but not trashy at all. All pull through and FHU, though a little small. No fire ring at the RV sites but welcome to use a ring at unoccupied tent sites plus the communal ring. Next to 101 means a bit noisy by day, but traffic volume dies down at night. Laundry has 2 washers and driers. WiFi works CG wide, and does not cost an irritating extra $. Great to use as a base for touring the area. We are usually State Park users but this a very pleasant surprise for a private park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with other reviewers comments. We paid $25.64. This park is convenient as it is 2 miles north of the cheese factory. It is small but can accommodate a few big rigs. Call first. There is some highway 101 noise. The Wi-Fi worked great. They do recycling which I support. One of the 2 dryers was broke so it took the wife more time than she likes to do the laundry. The office lady was up front about the dryer and worked with me on selecting the best site for our needs. The biggest down side is that the showers require Quarters ($.25). One Quarter gets you 3 minutes plus, 2 some more time and so on. I can understand why RV parks in high pedestrian traffic areas use coin operated showers but this park shouldn’t. The showers (2) were uni-sex but that is not the problem. IMHO coin operated showers are an indicator of a problem in what should be a standard RV campground. We checked on the fees for the nearby golf course and they were far too high. They wanted $56 for 2 to play 9 holes with a cart. Tomorrow we are playing a 3 and ½ star, 18 hole course in Florence, Ocean Dunes, for $60. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here before and would return. The park is clean, sites are level, electricity, wifi and water pressure are all OK. The sewer connections are at the very rear of the site so 20 ft. or more of sewer hose would help. Staff is friendly and helpful. Another poster mentioned barking dogs. We have not seen or heard one dog. Maybe there were travellers here with dogs during his stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites are gravel and flat. Kind of narrow with about 15 to 20 feet between the sides of units. There are 30 RV sites with about half with 50 amp power. Rest are 30 amp. Thirty amp voltage is reading 121 with no load. Tent sites about 20 +/-. Good WiFi and a clear shot for DirecTV. The signage coming from the north is non-existent. Barking dogs are not controlled and there is a lot of US 101 traffic noise. Campground is neat, dogs might be a problem?? I cannot compare this park against any other as this is our first trip on this route. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access off Highway 101. Gravel interior roads and sites with some grass sites. Sites are a little close together, but slide-outs can open. Office staff was very friendly and helpful. Nearby to many activities. WiFi works great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not bad but sewer connection was at the end of the site and I would have needed 40 feet of hose to connect to it. Manager was not in when we arrived at about noon but was helpful when she did arrived. Wi-Fi worked intermittently. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located about 6 miles south of Tillamook Elks Lodge at mile marker 71 on Hwy 101. Very large grass area with gravel pull-throughs and back-ins. Strong Wi-Fi, no Cable, Verizon OK. Pet friendly and Big Rig Friendly. Very helpful Park Hosts. Grounds kept spotless. Will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
You MUST be an Elk member to stay here. Campground is 6 miles south of Tillamook on Hiway 101. BEAUTIFUL setting near many trees, fresh water stream, and lush grass area--sites are fairly open. Good Wi-Fi. Overflow dry camping available for lower cost. Peaceful sitting. There are 9 - 50 amp spaces and 21 - 30 amp spaces. Spaces are gravel and some need leveling boards under tires. Staff is very helpful and friendly. GPS setting: 45/23/20 N, 123/47/57W. Lodge 1437 is located in the town of Tillamook NOT at the RV campground. Campground was new in 2010. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a gravel lot, all back in. The driveway is wide and the area quiet. That is the end of the nice things to say. There is no sewer. They only take cash. And there is an astounding fee of $40 to dump, even when you stay. I have never seen such a fee before and will never stay here again. Only 30 amp service. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a few days and loved the place. It was beautiful, clean, and very helpful staff. They even helped us with booking a tour at the Tillamook plant. I would refer this place to any one. Thank you everyone for making our stay memorable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campsite has a lot of potential because it's nicely situated on the river and just 5 miles from Tillamook. Our spot was near the office and was paved and level with full hookups. Because we were near the office, we had good WiFi reception. There are lots of (run down) permanent trailers stationed on the sites, that sadly gives this campsite a rundown look. The reason we give this campsite a low rating of 6 is because of the restrooms. The restrooms are absolutely disgusting! I had one shower here, which cost a quarter for 6 minutes which is a good price, the water was warm and good pressure, but the shower and the toilets were absolutely filthy. I don't mean dusty, I mean moldy, empty cans of beer and chewing tobacco, dirty clothes, etc. If the owner of this campsite would invest in cleaning and fixing both the mens and ladies restrooms, this would be a very nice campsite. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very new campground, basically a gravel parking lot. Central shower and bathrooms. Surrounded on 2 sides by levees and rivers where a dock and fishing is available. No trees. This site has no sewer hookups because of local restrictions. We were told they have applied to the city, but are having trouble getting permits because of the close proximity to the rivers. Staff very friendly and helpful. We chose this site because it was far enough away from the coast to be out of the fog and wind. We day-tripped to Garibaldi, Tillamook and other coastal towns, for fishing and crabbing. Good choice for our use. Might be rated as a "fisherman's campsite." We camped here in a Motorhome.
