Oceanview RV Park has been closed for the entire 2017 season. However, there are 8 RV spaces right next to the closed RV park that are open for the summer of 2017. Two of the eight are occupied by long term renters (I am one of them). Only water, sewer, electricity & wifi are provided. They do not provide cable TV or showers or toilets. Still, the price is very reasonable for Homer, the tiny park is very quiet and the view is phenomenal. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park offers a breathtaking view of Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet. The gravel sites are spacious, and graded horizontally into the slope down to the bluff. Ours was absolutely "dead nuts" level with no adjustment required, side to side or fore and aft. The water pressure was great and the electrical service was strong and steady. WiFi worked well at times, but I suspect some folks were being less than considerate and streaming video in the evening. Cable TV was all movie channels, but I received a good strong over the air broadcast on NBC and CBS out of Anchorage. Verizon was a bit on the weak side. The staff was friendly and courteous. The gravel beach at the foot of the bluff was excellent for walks. We will definitely stay here again should we find ourselves in Homer again. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to visit the famous Homer Spit. As the locals say, "Spit Happens". If you are in Homer on a Saturday or a Wednesday, there is an excellent Farmers Market in town on the main drag. Also be sure to save room one evening for the Bar-B-Q conveniently located in the little trailer next to the camp office. The owner is a very personable guy, and his food is outstanding. Order early! He runs out.

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.

View is fabulous. Close to the spit. Our site was not level. Showers were free. Women's room was very nice. Husband said men's was not that great. Our picnic table couldn't be used as our site was so uneven. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff. Washer / dryers are small but, affordable. Oceanview is limited when campground is full due to blocked view by adjacent RV units. Walking distance to all downtown shopping. Quiet setting closer to water with ocean waves masking highway sounds. Beach access down trail / embankment. No table nor fire pit for the price. Would stay here again.

Park is on a terraced hillside with views of the water and mountains. Staff was helpful. Laundry was adequate but could use some TLC. No set time for cleaning restrooms, sign was up but no one cleaning. Very expensive considering water and electric sites were the same as full hook-up. No dump station. We camped in a truck camper but for large rigs it would be very tight. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Great views and a nice quite place to stay. Electric and water were good. The only negative is not all that level and some trucks park on the road so it can be hard to get out if all the lots are full. All gravel sites and roads. Not too many tables to use. Have a trolley WiFi was pretty good. Cable TV works great and lots of channels but you have to get a box at the office and hope they have one. I would stay again if in the area. Staff very friendly and helpful. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Oceanview name is correct! It is beautiful, with friendly staff. When we arrived we were only 3rd camper on site but when we left it was full. We were asked to move our reserved spot because we were next to one of the campers. We tried one spot and could not get level so we tried another -- not more than 20 minutes later four other campers moved in right next to us. So that was a waste of time. Cable service did not work, Wi-Fi did work. I will attribute all of the issues including level pads to the fact that we were one of the first visitors to the RV Park for the season. They could not get their gravel load until the highway dept allowed the trucks to use the roads. The Staff said they would call the cable company to check their service. They also gave us the Good Sam discount and we were not GS members! We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Motorhome.

We took our bikes and rode down to Homer Spit. It's about 2 miles to the start of Home Spit Road. Homer Spit road is 4.5 miles long and relatively flat so this old broad was able to handle it! At the end of Spit road there are shops, pubs and marina. Even saw Time Bandit from Deadliest Catch moored up. There is a Safeway within biking distance (it would be a long walk) of the park. "Old Town" is within walking distance but it's not walk friendly at all and was a disappointment.

This was a nice park and all the staff we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. It is big rig accessible but tight for rigs 40 ft and over. Wi-fi seemed to work fine when we used it. Usually very late at night and I suspect we were one of few on it. We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Motorhome.

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 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.

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 Oceanview RV Park in a Motorhome.

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 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.
