If you are expecting organized activities you won't like it here. But if you appreciate being on a friendly little post with the nicest gate people you'll ever find, then stay here. Accessible beach is nearby and you can drive on it with your 4wheel drive. Sure it's kid friendly. They can run and yell and ride their bikes. Our Puppy liked it, too. Lots of places to walk him on the leash. There are the Roosevelt Elk who seem to know the shooting range schedule. If you drive slowly near the small rivers and ponds you will see geese, ducks, and some very lazy beavers. This beats an organized wiener roast to smithereens. We camped at Camp Rilea (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

Easy to find off Hwy 101 in Warrenton, OR. Bare bones campground. It is a paved parking lot with full hook-ups and a bath house. Very clean. A little noise from gunfire practice. Cannot check in before 2pm, but can park on base until then and explore area in tow vehicle. Nearby Fort Clatsop and Fort St Stevens. Nice for a couple of days.

This is a good place to visit Astoria and it's attractions, and is a clean campground. The showers and bathrooms were not cleaned for at least 3 days that I know of. I gave it a 3 due to no Wi-Fi and dirty bathrooms/showers. The cable for TV is good and lots of channels. Do not come in before 2pm, as they will not give you the key to the electric box.

Located on an Oregon National Guard Base off Hwy 101 seven miles south of Astoria. This is a paved parking lot that has been converted into a small RV Park. It's no frills but very clean and private. The bathrooms are excellent. If you have a satellite dish, try for sites 6-10. We camped at Camp Rilea (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.
