1 Park near Newport Beach, California
Dec 2015 - $97.00
Newport Dunes is a beautiful RV park close to everything in coastal Orange County located right on Newport's Back Bay. There are lots of amenities (heated pool, gym, laundry room, etc.) and activities for kids and adults, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The sites are reasonably level and the wi-fi is strong. We have stayed here the past three years between Christmas and New Year's but are going to look for another option for next year. Their prices have gone way up, and we don't feel we are getting our money's worth here any more. We have a smaller motorhome and use the resort's showers, but they are awful. The water only runs for 10 to 15 seconds at a time, so you have to repeatedly push a button below the shower head to keep the water flowing during your shower. Oh, and they don't heat the bathrooms in the winter, so you're cold the entire time. For almost $100/night I expect at least heated bathrooms. Also, we had to pay an additional $10 per night to reserve a specific site. All of these things make sense during the summer, but not in the winter when it is cold and the crowds are gone. - Herb and Dale

The resort is very nice if you have a site near the water which, of course, costs more. There are many amenities and activities.
We were here for three weeks and will stay again because it is the nicest park in the area but there are some issues. They have posted rules but do not enforce them. Noise beyond quiet hours, kids racing golf carts and motorized mini bikes ignoring posted stop signs and speed limits. The site we were on had a locust tree that dropped leaves, flowers and sap constantly requiring us to clean twice daily and have the RV washed. The RV is still covered in sap.
Very crowded on weekends and parking on street in front of each site not limited to one vehicle per site (or not enforced).
Overall though, a very nice park with many things to do and very convenient location. - Rambleinthebramble

While this campground has a great location right on the bay, with plenty of water sports available, I just can't give it a good rating. It is incredibly claustrophobic in spacing. We could not even extend our awning all the way. Most people had their outdoor chairs and fire pits in the street in front of their RV's because there is just no room in the spots to do so. Kids play in the street despite the fact that there is a beach 2 minutes away. It is so crowded that our neighbors had to move their cars and tow-vehicles in order to let us and others maneuver our trailer into the spot. The people are nice, the bay is nice, but it is just to tight of a space to be comfortable. Really cramped! - ezgator
