The view is great and the park was quiet enough for the week we stayed here. The sites are not real close together but close enough that your neighbors and their dogs can irritate you if they stay outside and talk for half the night. The not so great part is the size of the roads, as we had to shimmy our little 33 foot Winnebago into our back-in spot. We watched some people give up trying to back their 35 foot 5th wheels into a tight spot with very little turning space to do so. Some just gave up. And there were pull-thrus available, but apparently not given out for some reason. The pull-thru are really just back to back sites in the center of the park so if one side of all the pull-thrus (about 20) is full then there are really no pull-thru sites available. The park has a leash law as does the town of Homer but as we all know, dog owners think these leash laws apply to everyone but them. So I had to tell a few people to leash their dogs while here, as I know the park owners can’t police the park 24/7. The Wi-Fi is ok depending on how many people are on it. I would stay here again if in this area. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Our review might be a little prejudiced as we were assigned a nice wide and long pull through site separate from the main park. The afternoon check-in person was friendly and helpful. The woman working in the evening was surly and rude. Laundry was woefully inadequate for this size of a park, 4 washers and 4 dryers. Other than that, a very nice place with a beautiful view of the inlet. Would definitely stay here again, providing I had a space in the same part of the park. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Park needs some tender loving care. Sites are tight in every direction and not level. Utilities worked well and are placed properly. Park is good for easy access to all that Homer offers. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Nice views of bay. The rate is for 7 nights (50amps/FHU) with a Good SAMs discount. The sites were very tight and short. Since the campground layout is on uphill slope we didn't feel that cramped. Many dogs running free. A trash can and post at the entrance of every site made it difficult to park RV at times. Staff is very friendly. Office has a very nice gift store with decent prices. Park is away from all the hustle and bustle of the spit crowd. You can walk down to the adjoining beach, but the path needs work to be safe. We would stay again.

We enjoyed our stay here. The park is gravel and took some leveling of our 5th wheel, but the view was worth it. We were close enough to the water of the bay to watch the tide come in and out. They have a gift shop and close to the harbor and the spit. We would stay here again. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park is similar to all the parks I saw in Homer, simply a parking lot with utilities. But it did not seem as dense, and the terraced slots helps to minimize that aspect. We were fortunate and ended up up towards the bottom with just a fabulous view of the bay. So much better than the wind and bedlam on the spit. Ferry works out well, however it is $10 per day per person, so can be a little expensive. Location is great for walking town, shopping, museums and down to beach! Staff was terrific and the place was really very clean. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Motorhome.

This campground was a refreshing change from the "parking lots" we had been in. Grass at almost every site, incredibly gorgeous views, and staff that were friendly, helpful and so very nice. We stayed a week and then extended for a few more days because we liked it so much. They helped us to arrange a fishing trip and a visit to Katmai. They even helped us to find the best value by making calls for us!!! We will stop here ANY time were are near and may come back specifically to stay here. We just loved it.

I would highly recommend this park. For one thing the view is spectacular, we were in a site 4 from the water. The Wi-Fi is fantastic compared to what we had at Homer Spit, you get right on to the web with no problem. Laundry is great. Didn't use the restroom or showers, so no comment about that. The staff is very nice. We had a not-so-good experience with the Trolley, the man that was called to fill in wasn't what we expected, so they gave us a free ride with the man that was their normal driver. Also, they had a 4th of July celebration at the park, (rain or shine). It was a pot luck, so everyone brought a side dish and they provided deep fried halibut, hamburgers, and hot dogs will all of the fixings. Also they had a raffle (no cost) and many of us received gifts. Very much a family setting, even in the rain. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Nice view away from traffic, much closer to museum, grocery store and walking paths. Staff is friendly and helpful, even with a caravan here for part of our stay. There was plenty of room and we had no problem backing in to our site. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Some sites are not level, therefore difficult to level your unit depending on size. The manager allowed us to change sites as the original site was not adequate for a 40 ft motorhome. Some difficulty in getting into some sites with larger units. Staff was helpful. Inadequate cable system, Wi-Fi works OK. Would probably stay again if in the area.

Rate is based on weekly rate, pay for 6 nights and the 7th is free. Difficult to see park from the road, and we drove past then had to turn around and drive back. Sites are on a steep hill and while they are level, access to each site is limited by the road being quite narrow and vehicles extending onto it. Full hookup sites are either back-in or back to back. They do try to use the back to back sites as big rig pull through's. Showers and restrooms were clean considering the number of people staying at the park. We will opt for the Homer Spit experience the next time we are Homer, as this park is a long way away from the spit, though it doesn't have the wind the Spit does.

This campground is one of the poorest that we stayed at during our Alaskan trip. The sites are extremely narrow, short, and grossly misrepresented. We had made reservations for three nights. There were no refunds available, as we were going to move. There were large motorhomes on either side of us, both with slideouts, when the slideouts were extended, we barely had room to open our entrance door. If we would have had a slideout, it would not have been possible to use it. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

There is a nice view, all things worked, most site are used as back-ins. We had no problem leveling at our site If you requested a pull-through they appear to give you the back to back back-ins what the rate is for these is unclear. The back-ins are somewhat tight for big units 40' plus. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Motorhome.

A good location with views from all sites. If you want 50amps the rate is 50/night. Though cable is advertised it is necessary to get a converter box from the office and connect it to the rear of your TV. The only significant drawback to the park is that the interior road is not paved and the dust generated by those inconsiderate #$&^@ is bothersome. Given the constant wind buffeting encountered at the spit, this park will continue to be my choice when in Homer. We camped at Ocean Shores RV Park (formerly Oceanview RV Park) in a Motorhome.

$45 is posted rate, we were part of a caravan. Other recent reviews hit it pretty much on the head. Great views, but a tight park. Took a little work to level. We got our Wi-Fi through a free network, something like SPITwSPOTS. Spit as in the Homer Spit, worked pretty good but will kick you off after an hour. It is provided by Homer. There are also lots of HOMER networks that we could get, but they all charged. Laundry here is 4 washers / 4 dryers. If you are on your own and self contained, go right down on the Spit and see if you can get into the muni campground there. $10 no hookups. There was also a small CG with electric only for $20. The Spit is where all the action is and there are lots of places down there. Watch out for the one high end park that was $80 a night and almost empty while we were here. 11 in our group did the half day halibut fishing and all had there 2 fish limit before 10:00 am.
