This park is built on a hillside with spectacular views of the bay and mountains. If you are fortunate enough to get a site at the bottom of the hill, the views are great. There is even a resident bald eagle that shows up most every morning. Aside from the views, the park is average. The staff is friendly and the park is generally kept neat and clean except for the tall grass between sites. Sites afe somewhat tight and backing in can be a challenge if there are trucks parked along the roads. The laundryroom when we were there had 2 small front-load machines working. Cost was $3.00 per load wash or dry. This is considerably less than the local laundromat. Utilities work OK except for some sewer connections. The sewer pipes at many sites extend up to 6 or 7 inches above grade making it virtually impossible to get gravity flow drainage. I saw a couple people resort to hooking up and draining tanks at their neighbors' lower site when it was vacated. Fortunately, if you are in a site with this problem there is a city dump station up the street across from the post office. We would stay here again, but would make sure we got a site with proper drainage. Even with its issues the park is in a great location and quiet. Your only other options are a few parks on the spit in the middle of tourist row. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good RV park and appeared better than those we saw on the Homer spit. Gravel sites are hardly "spacious" and most slope both back to front and side to side. The pull thrus are shared by two RVs butt-to-butt on a 75' site so each RV gets about 38'. I detest sharing a pull-thru with another RV only a couple feet out your rear window. Sites are tiered down the hill so you are slightly higher than the RV on your ocean side with adequate room for slideouts and about 15' between RVs. I saw several busses with their front wheels off the ground seeking level. The side to side site slope wasn't excessive. Utilities worked fine. Cable TV only works if you get their digital box (deposit required) but off the air signals are good as another reviewer noted. Dish satellite couldn't connect: still too far north despite open skies. Verizon voice worked well but data was 3G and barely worked at all here or anywhere in Homer. Park wifi worked okay depending on time of day and number of folks using it. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I have to disagree with the glowing reviews of this park. Everyone that works here is grumpy and does not care. They have guaranteed business. Roads are narrow and steep tough to back in a big rig. The ocean view is not from your inside your rig but rather the roads as the park is laid out for maximum revenue and not to provide views. The cable TV is scrambled digital, this means you need a converter box (they required a $172 security deposit). It also means that if you have 2 TVs you need 2 boxes (and they don't have many boxes). Advertised Internet is spotty and frustrating to try and get something done as it stops working regularly (probably too little bandwidth and too much traffic). The site trash service is actually ugly trash cans at each site, gives the place a "trashy" look. Only 4 washers/dryers for a large park. Some sites have shared water, which means you need a long hose to get to the next site. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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 Oceanview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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 Oceanview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As far as views go, this is a great spot to camp. We were only one site away from a true Ocean View, but the view from the bluff was great. It is a short bike ride or drive to the spit and downtown Homer. Why not a higher rating? I had to hike up the big hill to the washroom to get the Wi-Fi to work. And the cost is a little too high. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Prior to taking our trip to Alaska to celebrate my son's 10th wedding anniversary with his family I did my due diligence on-line to secure the best sites for our trip. I made my reservation and confirmed a beach view site on March 9th, 2007. I called several times prior to our arrival to make sure that the reservation was set and we would have the site we wanted. When we arrived on July 17th, 2007 after travelling 4,500 miles from Michigan we were informed that the site we reserved in March, 2007 had been double booked. The young girl behind the counter was very apologetic, but that did not make up for the fact that we were given a take it or leave it offer to move to another site after multiple calls to confirm the reservation. The owner showed up later and when confronted with our disappointment, she did nothing to make things right. In fact, she accused me of being a liar and said that we had reserved the site after the current occupants. Too bad she had not been there earlier when the young woman behind the counter told us that we had just recently been bumped for the current occupants. The owner did not offer any discount for her mistake and we were extremely disappointed. The sites are very narrow and we did not have much room to use in the site we were given. We only stayed one night and moved to Heritage RV park on the spit the next day. Heritage is more expensive, but at least the folks that work there are honest. If you don't mind being bumped or fighting for a site that has been double booked then this is the place to go. Otherwise, there are many other options in Homer. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Probably the nicest campground in Homer. Sites are level, terraced into a hill leading down toward the bay with excellent views of the bay and “the Spit” and a trail down to the beach. Free Wi-Fi on their patio. Some folks might prefer camping on “the Spit”, but it was too crowded, too windy and too dusty for our liking. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
