20 Parks near Bandon, Oregon

The park, including the drive in from Hwy 101, is very attractive. Well back from Hwy 101, no noise.
Our site was partially shaded, good screening on one side, partial on the other. Decent spacing at our site, closer at some others. The "C" Loop in particular has a very crowded feeling, with high density of equipment on the sites and no shrubbery between the sites resulting in zero privacy. Summer is the season for lots of activity and noise, so not the place for peace and quiet. As with the other state parks, many young children on bikes and wheeled vehicles riding without concern about the possibility of cars on the street. Don't know how we didn't see any accidents.
Site across from us had 5 vehicles, many parked entirely on the grass, which supposedly was off-limits ("all vehicles must be on pavement"): 2 cars, boat on trailer, pickup, truck camper. Many sites had at least 3 vehicles, extra tents etc. No effort was made to enforce this. The density of equipment on most of the sites makes it less attractive when in the campsite area. Garbage and recycling was in two locations serving the entire park, so it can be a good walk to them, depending on where you are.
We were in FHU "B loop", and many sites are used by tent campers. A series of tent campers were in the FHU site next to us the time we were here. They were large groups and spread out over the whole site, including the border next to us, and rather noisy (who wants to spend much time in a small tent). Big dogs across the street left tied outside all day, barking loudly. Come in, park, tie the dogs out to bark and leave for the day seems to be ok.
Utilities worked well, good Verizon data and fair AT&T phone and data. Could be a very nice park, but you got the feeling things were packed in tightly as you went down the roads.
Disappointing given previous reviews, will not return. - SW Rick

I could have rated this lower because of not having Wi-Fi or cable but the part was so nice I didn't miss those features. I can't believe the beautiful state parts Oregon has to offer. So far I have traveled from Santa Rosa California to Coos bay . Every park I stayed at was great!
I would stay here again in a heart beat. There were mosquitoes in the early morning. - twowoofs

It's a beautiful park, we may have hit it at the wrong time of year. The mosquitos were horrific. The trail to the beach .75 miles was 10% ankle deep mud and 5% water and mud. The rest nice enough with sand and walkways over the mozzie breeding ponds. Great beach, long and empty, probably because of the required effort to get to it. Good for agates.
Dumpsters must have been due soon for cleaning because they were nasty. Nice recycling, great and helpful camp hosts. We had good satellite in this site, but would be dicey in most others. Did I mention the mosquitos? - likeabirdie

Very much enjoyed our stay here! Right on the ocean and we could just barely hear the foghorn from our campsite which, for us, was enjoyable! Spacious site with picnic table and fire ring.
Absolutely delicious chocolate chip cookies upon arrival. What a wonderful surprise! - clhamann1

It is the closest park in the area to the beach - site 44 was maybe 200 feet from the beach. Because of a crab festival in town and being Presidents Day weekend, the park was quite full, but very quiet. Most sites were very adequate for large rigs. We stayed here for 3 nights. The park is very clean. - BandD

The staff was friendly and helpful. Thursday thru I think Sunday (better check) there is a small, clean and welcome sight, fast food grill stand. there is a dog friendly beach as this is a ocean front park. We will return. - MW91301

The daily rate is the two month rate per day. Very well kept park with paved spots for trailer and large gravel with picnic table. Close to the coast. Very friendly office staff. Mostly full timers living in park so not many spots left for monthly but about four spots open for overnighters. The best park in Coos Bay. - Mrrocko

Park is generally clean and well maintained. However, it is difficult to get help from office because of lack of consistent open office hours. Many times there was a sign posted in office door that said "Working in Park". Front showers were clean but curtains were slimy and stunk of mold. we stayed in the park for a few months and upon leaving in the middle of the month we were told we could not get a refund. However, the park management re-rented our spot the minute we left. which we discovered by returning a few days later when we chose to stay longer. assumption the spot was still ours due to the fact we were paid for the entire month. When we discovered someone in it, we were treated very rudely and told that because our rig was gone they assumed we had left. Owners do not live on site or even in the same town. Office worker seems nice but not very helpful in problem solving. it has been 90 days and we have never recieved our deposit back from the park even after several phone calls asking about it. I will never stay in this park again. - kittycat109

This is a nice laid out park. The sites are level and all on blacktop. As most RV parks the Wi-Fi does not work most times. There is some space between campers for a picnic table, but they are on loose gravel. My Verizon air card worked really well, internet was no problem. The rest rooms and showers were nice and clean but dated. Seems a little high for this place, but its one of the better ones in this area. - possumtrotky

This was a nice park. The rate seemed a little high at first. When I checked around the surrounding area, it then seemed quite reasonable. The staff were nice and helpful. Coos Bay is a beautiful little Town, and we enjoyed every minute of our unfortunate short trip here. The great thing about this Park is the Hot Tub. Something to say about snuggling up after a nice trip to the hot tub when it is gently sprinkling outdoors. The smell of the Earth greats you as you step outside. Would recommend and will return again. - Sookie

This is a first class RV Park. A few permanent locals, many long termers, and some park models populate this well maintained park. The individual bath rooms are great, just like home, if not better. Good cable and good Wi-Fi. Everything here was great and I loved it. A little off the 101 but everything is close by. Very nice area. - Chalet 22

Helpful manager, well kept and tidy park. All sites are paved and level. Hedges separate many of the sites. Very tight access, only two pull-through sites and this park is not very big-rig friendly. - Ray Waugh

This is our favorite Oregon State Park. There is a maze of trails through the dense forest between the campground and the ocean bluffs. There is a great beach to walk or drive on too. It is very quiet here and well protected from the storms. Plenty of large sites (compared to many other coastal state parks) for big rigs too. Nice hosts and park employees along with the well maintained facilities make this place a ten! Host sites with sewer hook ups are available to the public during the winter season. - americana

It would be nice if all state parks could reach the level of Cape Blanco State Park. The park is beautifully laid out my large very private campsites. There are lots of interesting trails adjacent to the campsite to go either for a stroll or a serious hike. The setting is deep and dense forest on a bluff overlooking a stunning beach and bay, with the lighthouse not too far off in the distance. I could hear the waves crashing below from my campsite in the mood changed frequently with the fog drifting in or out. The campground seems to be exceptionally well run. We were approached by the camp host who was on duty. He was very outgoing and help us select our site and fill out the forms. It was very hospitable and welcoming.
The showers and bathrooms were well-maintained despite the constant onslaught of kids tracking dirt and pine needles in. in. With the heavily wooded campsites, there was a nice feeling of privacy, though you could hear the sounds of other campers. - Chazbo

Plenty of room for our Class B RV. Our shaded site backed up to trees along the cliff overlooking the beach. full hook up, wood available for campfires. We will return to this State campground.
We were lucky to get a site that was just being vacated. This is a very popular campground and in the summer at least, looks like it's almost always full. It was very foggy and windy and quite cold when we stayed there, but still a great campground. - skidiver

Very nice, spotless, teeny tiny park on the harbor in Charleston-by-the-sea, which is more or less a suburb of Coos Bay. This is a very small park - only 10 sites, sites are small and close together but the park is immaculate with nice landscaping. The owner/managers were some of the friendliest people that we met on this trip. The sites are paved and very level. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. No crappy, rusty looking full time set up's here! There were a couple of fairly large 5th wheel units here, but I don't think that a big Class A would fit. - julievojo

First let me start this review with the fact that we camped in a 45 motorhome with tow. This campground's owners are amazing. They are super friendly and accommodating. They just bought the place a year ago and are making improvements. This is a very clean place with a great grass area for kids to play. They also have a pool. This campground is great for those who are wanting a woodsy camping experience. This place has a ton of trees and bushes that gives that feel. The only downside to that is it is HARD to maneuver a large motorhome or trailer. My husband has drove truck for decades and even he had to really think about how to get out without hitting a tree or bush.
If I had a smaller motorhome, trailer, tent or wanted to stay in a cabin I would DEFINITELY stay here again. - Rbkranch

This is probably the nicest KOA we've stayed at. Beautiful shaded grounds and spacious sites. This really fit our criteria for a great place to stay; no full timers and you're not packed in so close you're staring at your neighbor's sewer line. Our site was toward the back and it was nice and quiet. No road noise. There is also a nice big dog park that was very clean and convenient. Great place for families; every evening they ran a little train through the park carrying kids and parents. Nice friendly staff. We will stay here again. - SiskiyouSenior

Not your typical KOA ,but for us that was a good thing. Most sites had good privacy and are located in a heavily wooded area. Many sites are long and work for big rigs. If you have slides on both sides it may be a tight fit with trees but plenty of space between the next RV. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were clean. The pool and hot tub were nice. There were free nightly mini train rides and a morning pancake and sausage breakfast for a fee. There is a large fenced dog run. The store is well stocked. Check in was fast and friendly. Our site was level but some may need a few blocks. The WIFI did not work well at our site, but there was a good Verizon signal for our MIFI. Some sites had basic cable TV. The setting is like a state park but with more amenities. - pawatt

So, this park is definitely different. First the good....The front office girl, Manjana was very sweet and helpful. The park had a decent weekly rate, especially for Summer in Oregon, and the sites were quite roomy. They provided picnic tables, and their wi-fi worked ok, some of the time. We backed up to the fence overlooking the Bay, and had a nice grassy area behind us.
Now the not so good. We backed up to the Bay, and there are train tracks behind the park fence. Starting at 6:00 am, every weekday morning we were there, the clashing and screeching of the trains woke us up. It was kind of neat watching it for the first couple hours or so, but it got to be a little deafening after that.
There are a lot of long term residents there, whose sites are pretty messy, with a bunch of toys and junk scattered around.
This park would be ok for a overnight stay, but longer than that, we would find some place else. - Mr&MrsFulltimers

The campground is OK, I would normally recommend it. However, it is advertised as having cable TV and it did not provide it, and the response was ho-hum, our provider is switching from analog to digital, so tough! The bathrooms are nice. There are rails adjoining the property and they were operating early in the morning through the day through switch gears. Our dog was severely wounded in unfortunate encounter with another dog and we left a day early. Although they advertise no refunds I would think there would be consideration for extreme circumstances. - User3661

Right in Coos Bay on a canal of the bay, the owner was very obliging, parking us in a prime spot with our front windshield looking out over the water. In spite of being in a busy area of Coos Bay, our spot was very quiet. There is a major train track right outside the gates of the RV, but it is seldom used--in the four days we were there a set of train cars was moved once. Out the back gate of the RV park is a paved walking path which leads to downtown Coos Bay, the marina, plus great fish and chips. The owner was nice enough to let me keep a key to the gate for the entire time we stayed. The only "con" for this park--the lack of anywhere to walk the dog. The entire city of Coos Bay must be having issues with the Water Department--there is very little green grass anywhere, even the nicer homes have let their lawns go brown. There was one very small patch of brown grass with a sign, "Dog Walk Area." The rest of the larger brown areas of grass in the RV park had signs which read, "NO DOGS in this area." - mjclark

We needed a place to stay one night and many of the other parks were booked solid in the busy season. Based on other reviews this place sounded acceptable and we found it so. As with many small parks it appears that many folks are living here full time however we did not get the impression that it is in any way rundown. All the sites were neatly maintained. The utilities were very easy to access and our site was spacious yet spartan. No unnecessary frills. Someone had complained about the lack of cable TV but we were offered a list of channels which we did not use. The WiFi worked perfectly. - housecar

We drove to another RV park on Beach Loop Road and the navigator said keep on driving, it just wasn't inviting looking. We continued on to Beach Loop RV Village where the navigator saw the grounds and said "we are staying a week". The park is very well maintained, circled on most sides with evergreen trees, and a cranberry farm on one side. The sites are spacious with nice grass areas between them.
They escorted us to a pull-thru site and provided information about the park and the local area. Our site had 50 amp, water and sewer. The water pressure is about 30 psi. The free wi-fi is good with good speed.
Things must have improved since the older, lower ratings. The park is well laid out, clean and inviting. We paid the weekly rate of $150, very good price for the park and amenities. - Navy RV Traveler

New owners in 2012 have been spending money to improve the facilities. The rec room and clubhouse are freshly painted and carpeted. The equipment and furniture all look to be new. The laundry has 3 washers & dryers that look fairly recent, $1 per load each. The grounds are well manicured and clean. The appearance of the park is very nice. 35 spaces now but they are adding 30 more. The park is very quiet and away from highway 101 noise. There are a small number of long term sites that are clean and neat. - Windshift

We were pleasantly surprised with this nice place. Very friendly people and spacious sites. Yes there are several long term people but they were in a different area. 4th of July BBQ was great. Met lots of fun people. Great food. Will return. - smithandmoseley
