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! We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Guy on front desk was very helpful when we asked for a different spot. Pitches are sandy gravel which make a real mess when walking in and out. Showers were Luke warm at best. Communal shower room with plastic curtains on each booth. Curtains too small. Building big and cold. I feel they are trading on their location of Newport Beach. NB may be one of the richest places in the country but even so, for $88 per night it really needs to be better than this. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here for a month in a 40 ft motorhome. The park is very old, outdated and the sites are too small for motorhomes with slides. Our site had a broken chainlink fence in the back that make it very difficult to position the coach correctly or safely. We used bath towels to protect our rear light lenses (honestly!). Garbage was left at our site. LOTS of rules, but no enforcement of them. Speed limits are not enforced or is picking up after pets. Parking is a joke. Yes, we took our concerns to management. No, we will not use this park again despite it being so close to our family. The fact that they are on water is keeping them in business. Very disappointed.

We have been here other times at this resort. This time for ten days. It is certainly magnificent. Private beach, spacious and comfortable and fully serviced plots. Whenever we come to Los Angeles in motorhome choose this resort for our stay, even though it is 50 miles from the airport. Near South Coast Plaza, Home Depot, etc., which is always interesting. The only problem is its proximity to John Wayne airport, but flights start at seven AM there. The wifi works great and convenience store is well stocked and very friendly staff in all areas of the resort.
Highly recommended, although slightly risen in price. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

It is expensive for the bay front. The sites are tight and the hook-ups are hard to use especially the sewer as it is about 4-5 inches higher than the ground. Like many older parks, they where not designed for the size of todays rigs. It would be nice to see part of the park redone to accommodate larger rigs. In spite of the negatives we would stay here again. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

My wife and I are from Spain and we are making a trip through the USA. We went in March from Miami, Fl and we're done for now, in Los Angeles in August. We stayed at this campground because we knew another time we were in it 20 years ago. It is a site that can be described as luxury. It has its own beach and plots, although not very large, yes are comfortable with all amenities. In this site we have seen the most luxurious RVs along our journey. Keep in mind that the area, Newport Beach, is the best of southern LAX. Nearby is the South Coast Plaza, magnificent shopping center that should be seen. It it not too quiet, being near the John Wayne Airport, whose flights begin at seven o'clock. The Wi-Fi is very good. It is very well maintained and the facilities are good. Recommended.

Overpriced at $110 per night. Park on loose dirt. Dilapidated picnic table and bench, could not be used. Very small spaces, camped on top of one another. Pacific Coast Highway noise. Under air flight path. If you pay the extra for a waterfront spot, you will enjoy it more. We will not be back. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Very clean and enjoyable park. The staff were friendly. A nice place to stay for people who like to have amenities and nice surroundings. It can be a little difficult to get into your site but once you are parked you will have a great vacation. Book early to get a waterfront site. The beach is literally in front of your site.

Really tight spaces separated by chain link fence. It was quite a project to maneuver our 38' 5th wheel in and it just about touched the back fence. Neighbors are only a couple of feet away. And we had the wheels on the concrete patio on one side and on the sand on the other. Not well maintained. The picnic table was so disgusting that we moved it to the hookup side of our site and the paint is peeling on the fences. Very low water pressure - the maintenance staff came out and checked it but never did anything about it. It's close to everything in Newport Beach (including the very busy highway) and the only game in the area. Other reviews by big rig owners in the waterfront spots are correct in their assumptions about the non-waterfront spots. The waterfront spots are nice and $$$$$. If we came back here we'd still stay here as there's nothing else for miles. It's expensive like any other beach property. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

An excellent RV park in the heart of Newport Beach. Excellent staff with a secure entry gate. Sites are spacious and level. Very clean with a beach and walkway. Lots of activities and convenient to Newport and Balboa Island. We love this park and will return next winter. The rate we paid was based on the monthly rate and did not include electricity. We paid around $1700 for a month total. The rates go up substantially in the summer. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This is an expensive park and I was expecting more. We took one of the preferred sites in the forth row and visited on a week day in March so it felt completely empty. Only the front row was full (of beautiful A class 40+ footers). Also the restaurant was closed which we had not anticipated (always closed one day a week). There is a lagoon in the middle which we took our small inflatable boat on, and a playground which our kids enjoyed. The swimming pool is heated and there is a very good sized laundry. The majority of sites are separated by ugly 5ft wire fencing. I was expecting green landscaping between each site for the price. The front row sites are lovely, with green grass, but you pay a lot for that. The showers were very clean. Tthe ones nearest the pool stay on until you turn them off, further away on the back row, they are push button operated so you have to keep turning them on multiple times during your shower. Annoying! Overall a good site and I'd come back, it just fell short of my very high expectations. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a difficult park to review. We have site 1103 which is a beachfront pull-in and we are near the front. It is really a nice site - Quiet with grass.. As we drive through the park we found that the rest of the park is not as nice. If you do not get a beachfront pull-in it is short, tight, and barren. Our site was tight but we are 45 ft w/4 slides and were able to fit with a little maneuvering; however, the other sites were really small. I am afraid that I would be extremely unhappy if we had not had the site that we did. If you have kids this is a great place. If you have no kids, it can be noisy & crowded. The lot next to us had 7 kids on it this afternoon! We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Very small sites, with the hook-ups in the wrong location. Our site on the water was just okay and had not been cleaned. The dirt was muddy (no rain). In the winter it was only 1/3rd full, in the summer it is jammed. Will stay again as it is the only park in the area. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

I have not stayed at this park in about 5 years. The rate reflects a weekend bay front site. In my opinion it is the only sites that are worth staying in. All of the sites at this park are extremely small. Getting the slides open can be a tricky deal as the sites have chain link fences between them with shrubs on them. The patio's are concrete, but the pads are decomposed granite and dirt. It rained the night before we arrived so the pads were a bit muddy. A new 3' fence has been added to the front of the bay front sites which improved the private space quite a bit. The sewer hook ups on the sites are poorly designed causing the sewer hose to be more than a foot off of the ground. The only reason to come here is the location, and the proximity to the bay area shops. We came for the boat show which was nice, but left for more accommodating park the next day. This continues to be one of the most expensive parks in the country. I don't mind paying for paradise, but the amenities here just don't measure up. I may stay here again, just not for any length of time. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

We have just completed a month stay at Newport Dunes and have been very happy with the experience. We stayed in two different sites. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I changed my site upon arrival once I saw the location of the monthly site, then changed mid stay to a water front location, removed a car from my list of vehicles, and almost had to leave for a family emergency and they were willing to provide a refund for my unused time (against general policy). They worked with me all along the way with a smile and great attitude. The patrons that show up on the weekends can be a bit loud but during the week it's a nice quiet location. Yes it's expensive and sites are a bit small but price per Sq Ft in Newport is approx $800 so that's to be expected. We camped at Newport Dunes Waterfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo
