19 Parks near Cannon Beach, Oregon
May 2016 - $45.00
We've been to this place many times over the years. Some things have improved. Others have not. It is way overpriced in my opinion for what you get EXCEPT for the location. It is on lovely Ecola creek and is walking distance to the beach and the downtown area of Cannon Beach. There are stables on the premises and horses graze in the pasture adjacent to the RV park and they do trail rides on the beach during the summer months. Didn't use them, but the restroom/showers appear to be basic and older, but functional, although there is no place to sit in the shower area at all. The "General Store/Coffee bar" or whatever it is called is seldom open. There's no wi-fi either which in this day & age is unacceptable, especially at this price. Also, be aware that some of the "electric & water" sites only have 120 ac service, no 30 or 50 amp. We were not told this at check in. It didn't matter to us as we have a converter plug to connect our 30 amp to the 120 outlet and that's all we need, but you should check on this if you decide to come here. Oh, and they also charge $3 per day extra per dog! That really irks me. We come to Cannon Beach for the art festivals and this is a great base for that so, yeah, we'll probably come back again, but only because of that. If all you want is to camp near the Oregon coast, you can do a lot better. - Pdxjoanne

This facility is in major need of maintenance! The urinal in the restroom was plugged & overflowing and the toilets were filthy. The store that is advertised is not open on a regular basis. The picnic tables are in poor, if not dangerous, condition. Quiet time is not enforced. The dumpster needed to be emptied and was overflowing. The owner was very rude. - Elaine Nieman

The park was poorly maintained, littered with trash, fallen limbs and leaves, and unwatered greenery. The wi-fi was too weak to use. The dump is located near the entrance, and we had to back in at an inconvenient angle, dodging children who were allowed to run and ride bikes in the area. We had to partially block the way of incoming and exiting campers.
We won't be visiting this park again. - Jolalla

Not sure what the attraction to this park is. It is basically a state park...crowded, dirt/gravel sites, no cable or wifi. Trees caught roof while backing in. Site was very nice size but with all the vehicles parked in adjacent sites backing in was a challenge. Nice I guess for overnight but not the type of park we prefer. - Alpenlite35RK

Friendly, efficient checkin. Good pullthru site, all utilities fine (site not yet upgraded). Leveled without blocks. Fair separation between sites.
No Verizon data, barely useable AT&T phone, no AT&T data. Park wifi ok during day, very slow evenings.
Crowded, some 3-vehicle sites with 6-10 people. Weekends in particular are busy. Children riding bikes thru our site at high speed, so close I would have knocked one down if I had opened our door while they were racing thru. This would be a good place before/after school vacation.
Nice walk to town and beaches, this is the best and most convenient spot if you want to stay in Cannon Beach. The recently-opened Pelican Brewery is only a few blocks away and offers a wide variety of excellent food (and beer). Very crowded, so get there early to get a table without waiting. - SW Rick

This is the best option if you are visiting Cannon Beach. It is in walking distance to the downtown area and yet secluded from the noise of the nearby highway. This is usually a busy spot, reserve early. The best sites for back-ins are the single digit ones. Staff is friendly and efficient. The park is also in the process of upgrading sites and facilities. We go back again and again. The price reflects and extended stay and multi-discounts. - BMonk

We were traveling down the coast and needed a place to stay along the way. This park is clean and well taken care of. They need to build more restrooms as we waited each time we used them. This medium sized park has narrow asphalt spots - I mean the area for the rig is narrow. Lot spacing was normal and the grass was nice. The price is a bit high for what you get. - daa10496

Location is the best reason to stay at this RV park. Conveniently, located between Cannon Beach and Seaside. We were here for the 4th of July and I was able to see the fireworks in the distance. I like that the park has a large dry camping field to support impulsive trips to Seaside. River access is limited by tall grass and shrubs. There is no easy access to the beach or walking trails, however all of this is easily overcome by a short 1/4 mile drive to the Promenade in Seaside. WIFI is available only part of the day at 6MB speed. - User1021

We have a 45' motor home and must be level in order to extend our slides. Our size and leveling limitations eliminates many choices of locations. Located right on 101, but was quiet never-the-less. The staff was friendly and helpful as we came in at the last minute. - Don A

The RV park is only a few blocks away from a cinema and outlet mall as well as about a 1/2 mile from the ocean. Sea Side is one of the nicest Thousand Trails parks we have stayed at (on par with Orlando and Williamsburg). The park itself is split into 2 - South and North. You check into the South Side but the pool and hot tub (enclosed and nice) are on the North Side so it is worth checking that side for availability first. Our site was on the road directly across from the pool and family recreation room with ping pong, billiards, TV, etc. They even made Ice Cream Sundaes one of the days! - Bay Area Early retirees

Specific sites can't be reserved. We were aware of this and had to drive through and find an empty site. Gravel sites and not level. Attendant was very "military" in his actions. No "welcoming" attitude at all. Members are in a different area, but we were made to feel like second-class visitors. We will not stay here again. - smithandmoseley

Like all TT, first come first served. Sites are all decent size, full hookup in certain parts, be sure to study the map when you check in. Nice indoor pool and recreation area. Nice and clean laundry facility. - tughawks

This is a small park but extremely well kept up. The owner works daily on keeping her beautiful flowers well tended. They add much to the park. The spaces are very easy to get into and plenty of space for your vehicle. There is a fairly well stocked store on site as well. My only complaint is it's right on 101 so traffic noise is a bit much. We're sound sleepers so it didn't bother us at night. All and all this is a good choice. - pkight

Sites are very neat and wide with each site having a parking pad for RV, then a patio and grass and a parking pad for tow vehicle. Park is small, well kept and easy to use to access Seaside and Astoria. Convenience store has anything you need and they smoke their own meats and have fresh brisket sandwiches for lunch and dinner. Nicely landscaped. - Fulltime Gypsy

A small park. All back ins but room for my trailer and a spot for pickup.A little tight for my 37.5 ft. 5th wheel but doable. All hookups in good shape. Nice laundry room. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Good WiFi. - Donny Mackelprang

We loved this park! It accommodated our 40 ft motorhome with tow without a problem. Mature pines offer some shade and make the camp attractive. Paved roads and sites with grass for picnic table and fire ring. You have to walk up a big dune to get to the beach, which is wide and lovely with mountains in the views to the sides. Our little dog loved running on the beach. A two-mile paved trail for bikes or walking is beautiful and takes you by a lake. Wish we could have stayed longer. Only drawback: no sewer. We got wifi via a hotspot but there's no over-the-air TV or campground wifi. - Breeze On

We visit this park every year in June for a camping trip with friends. We stayed in yards before, but this was our first time in an RV.
It's a great, safe place for kids, and many of them ride bikes and play in the park campground. The park is just a short walk to the beach over the sand dunes. - NotSoPro

It's an attractive state park. Sites are a bit close. Shore pines separate sites, but the trees are not thick privacy screens. All sites looked level. There are no ocean view or ocean front sites. There are sand dunes between the campground and beach. It's a fairly short, easy walk over the dunes to get to the beach. There are other trails that lead to the bay side of the park, which provides scenic views. Showers were basic but clean and had hot water. I appreciated the long wooden bench in the shower instead of the small wooden stool some of the Oregon state parks have. - Neil and JoAnn

The site was very spacious. Not near water nor any wifi available as they said in their description. - Judy2shoes

We booked through RPI, and requested a 50 amp full hookup site. When we arrived, we were directed to a site in the lower tier by the water. The site was VERY narrow- so narrow in fact that luckily someone volunteered to back in for me. Then we discovered that the site was 30 amp, no sewer! We complained to the person in the entrance shack - there is no office - and he finally let us move up to the upper tier across Rt 101. We had more room, 50 amp FHU, but couldn't get Internet or satellite TV.
The entire park is run down. To call this a "resort" is a gross misuse of the word!
Also we called them several times, both before our arrival and during our stay. Only once did we connect with anyone. We left messages on the other calls and not once did anyone return our call.
We would not use this park again. - The Sauntering Sampsons

In fairness - The corporate office for this park stated they are refunding our 40.00, but we have not yet seen it reflected on the credit card.
Driveway appears to have washed out and they are working on fixing it. There is only one lane and it is a steep, short, downhill grade and we drug the tow bar both entering and exiting their temporary fix.
Parked (VERY tight sites) in space 9, setup, and went to find a place to have lunch. Upon our return there was a truck parked cross ways behind our rig, in the place we were to park the tow. We asked if it could be moved so we could park in the designated parking spot for us behind our RV.
A very angry, confrontational man approached our car and rudely informed us we were taking his parking places for some fish thing they are doing and we needed to move the RV. So we did, to a entirely different RV Park.
This rude, confrontational, glaring, giving us nasty looks man was working on this fish activity about four feet from the door of our RV. We did not feel safe so leaving was our best option. Peacefulness and personal safety. - C and T

This is a marina with a RV park attached. All sites back up to the bay, view is beautiful. They want you to enjoy your stay. Boats to rent, crab traps, fishing poles bait etc. They will show you how to clean and cook your catch. Crab from the docks. They sell cooked and uncooked shellfish. Small grocery. 30 amp only, good internet, no dump. Parking lot atmosphere with lots of parking for toads and tows. Great Staff. - Landyachty

This is a NO FRILLS fishing/crabbing dock! If your looking for luxury, keep driving. If your looking for a place for a few days with beautiful views, and to catch a few crabs, this IS the place! They will greet you with a smile and get you crabbing in no time, either off their dock or on the water, they have small boats to rent as well. If you'd rather eat than crab, that's available as well. They have live crabs, oysters, and clams on site for sale and they will cook them up for you. Then you can enjoy them around the communal fire pit. Boat dock is available also. The road in is dirt/gravel, the sites are pull in (for the view out your windshield) or back in for trailers. Might need an extension cord for your power, mine was just barely long enough. Satellite serve was great, all our cellular devices worked fine ( AT&T, Sprint & Verizon). They have a HUGE area for tenting as well. They only have 4 sites for big rigs, so be sure to call ahead. The sites are close together, large motorhomes with full slides on both sides will take up your complete site. We would stay here again. - Kerry B

The location is fantastic - we were backed up to the Nehalem Bay. We rented crabbing equipment onsite and crabbed from the docks. They cooked the crabs for us then we made a fantastic dinner overlooking the water. The challenge with this campground is that it's essentially a parking lot with RVs parked close to each other. The weekend we visited was not too busy so we were able to enjoy some space and the view. Be sure to ask if they are having any events (such as a their monthly karaoke contest) before you go. We were there on karaoke night and the music was so loud we couldn't escape it. It started around 6pm and went to 11pm. Thankfully our 5 year old was able to fall asleep, and by 11pm there was solitude again. - rivetedroving

We had a state park booked, but decided at the last minute that it was too far from where we wanted to be. We drove down the 101 and found Jetty has sites open. We were very surprised, but the park and really liked it. The driveway is extremely steep and if its busy it might be cramped. The staff was very nice and helpful. - ChrisD

This is an unusual park due to its location on a bay, and a busy marina setting. If you like to crab, watch seals and the tides and boats go by this the place for you! We did make it in with our 39' rig but the driveway is a bit steep -- we got a site overlooking the bay and that made it great for us. Our only complaint about this campground was the $5/day charge for our dog! Surely she did not use any of their amenities. We would stay here again. - gypsylife

The price has gone up dramatically from past reviews, and is high for very close sites with hookups on an asphalt parking lot. Sites are all back-in but are easy to get into.
Had 50 amp steady power, no problems. Sewer connection worked well.
It's open and quiet, convenient to all the things in the area we wanted to see. We'd take this place over crowded commercial campgrounds any day. Would definitely stay again. - all4pets

The camping area here is a large parking lot with hook-ups. That being said, the spaces are long and wide, and we put our slides out on both sides. The sites slope a little toward the front. The check in was a little disorganized on the day we were here. When you check in you get a key to unlock the electric box on your site. When you leave you can drop the key in the drop box at the billeting office.
The noise from the range was not offensive, and even somewhat nostalgic. The post is clean and the roads well maintained. There is no fuel station on post as some camping websites indicate. Very small PX. Camp Rilea is convenient to beaches, Lewis and Clark historical sites, and Astoria. We enjoyed camping at Camp Rilea, and would come back again. Make a reservation well in advance. - WGlengrl

There isn't a whole lot here but it's very economical and the nearby beaches are great. The guards at the gate are very friendly. Great laundry facility with pool table and enough washers and dryers for lots of people. And it's free. We like to visit this camp every year. We like going in to Astoria and buying fresh seafood in Warrenton. - Newbet
