From our perspective, if one averages the prior reviews from 2009 to now, you have a pretty good summary of this place. It is actually better than we anticipated for the area. We found it entirely adequate. Our Verizon phone and hot spot worked great, no TV, level sites, quiet, and the ocean on your doorstep. Cape Flattery and its magnificent views are less than 6 miles away, plus a pretty "interesting" 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot to the viewpoints. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The operators were very friendly and helpful. Nice if you're into fishing, camping, and hiking. And the museum is great. There is a full service store within walking distance. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Neah Bay is a small town located on the Makah Indian Reservation. Fishing and hiking is the most popular reason for folks to come to the area and many do. Permits are required and you need to get a year pass.. but its only about $10. Cape Motel RV park is really pretty nice for the area. When we were there the grass was green and looked like a big park with shade trees. The staff was super friendly and we found nothing to complain about. Its plain and simple, nothing more. Nearby, in walking distance is a great little museum that is well worth the price. Also across the way is the towns one and only grocery store. I would not recommend any of the other parks in the area they were just motel parking lots but this one was a cut above the rest. Reservations are probably needed during the summer. The road is and out can be a little trying as it is very narrow and heavily used by logging trucks who know the road well and want you to move. Winter sometimes causes washouts so you just have to be careful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a place to stay while visiting the most NW point of the Continental USA. The park sure lacks maintenance, commodes stopped up, lots of dogs and the few sites here all burn wood outside. Neighbors fire ring was 5 ft from my trailer. Had a problem with that. This park is not on the water but close. Can see the bay from my window and its about a hundred yards from me. I would not stay here again due to the dusty roads and the run down appearance of the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A beautiful beach front campground near Cape Flattery on the Makah Indian Reservation. We were treated to a beautiful sunset followed by a pass over of the International Space Station from horizon to horizon. The place is a great place for beach combing, playing with the kids, and fun on a mild surf beach. You can rent cabins or stay in your rig or tent here. The ocean is a few steps away and visible from the campsite. The men's room was out of order, and the ladies' room door lock was broken, but a chair was provided to block the door. There's plenty to do around the area, and this place is not really a resort, just a nice, pretty campground with full hookups in the RV area. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We stayed here because I couldn't see a better opportunity to stay so close to the beach with full hookups. I pretty much agree with the previous reviews. The facilities are adequate but there is a noticable lack of maintenance and staff to help with any problems/questions. Being able to walk to the beach in less than a minute outweighs these negatives. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Road into park was very rough and dusty. Park was basically a large gravel parking lot. Sites were spacious and clean. No shade. Did have easy access to beach. Management was not on site and didn't make any attempt to control off road vehicle use in the campground and on the beach which caused significant annoyance, noise and dust on grounds. WI-FI was fair. No competition in area for camping facilities so little incentive to make improvements. Still, the area was worth visiting, especially the Makah Museum in Neah Bay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a new campground on the Makah reservation, right on the Pacific Ocean. The last 1/4 mile of the road is gravel, past the tent area to the RV hookup area which is gravel also. Rigs park with nose facing the ocean right over the low dunes--you can lie in your bed and watch the waves, if you like! There are a couple of fire rings located in a grassy area behind the rigs, so if you want a campfire you can go over there.Easy access to the beach--just go through the cut-through in the fence. Cape Flattery is less than 10 miles away and there is a good museum of the Makah Indians in town. Neah Bay harbor is home to good charter fishing,too. You'll need to pay $10 for a permit to do anything on the reservation. A couple of negatives we found--this is basically a gravel lot with hook-ups sticking up. It's clean, but no frills. There is one water pipe with a Y-splitter for every 2 sites. Unfortunately, we accidentally stripped one side of the Y in our site while removing our water hose. Fortunately, we found all the pieces & parts and were able to put it back together and get the water shut off. Since there was no main water shut-off valve we sprayed water just about everywhere and we were drenched in the process. In spite of all that, we would definitely return for a second visit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Don't be fooled by the word "Resort." This is not like any resort you have ever stayed. It is a parking lot with parking spaces the size of your local grocery. No room for slides. The hookups are on the wrong side. The dump connection was disgusting with someone else's spill over. The parking lot is dirt, gravel and weeds. I wouldn't have used the toilets or showers if I had to. No beach, no nothing. A rusty old dock and large rocks everywhere. The noise into the late hours was awful. Roving, drunk young men yelling shouting. Fireworks into the late hours. No control or security. On a brighter note, the owners/manager were very pleasant and friendly. I would never stay there again, nor would I return to Neah Bay. A sad place indeed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
