4 Parks near Charleston, Oregon
Sep 2015 - $24.00
This is a well kept county park on the beach near Charleston. Unfortunately, you can't really see the ocean from any of the sites, but it is visible if you walk down to the day use area. Sites here are on the short side and are very narrow. In some cases, it would be hard to put out your slides if you had them on both sides of your unit. On the other hand, the plant growth between sites does give you some privacy. All sites have a fire ring and a picnic table. This is a reservations only park, but if you come in looking for a site, you can reserve one on the spot if there is one available. Either the park ranger or the resident caretaker can help you with that. There are also 3 hosts in the park. They are good about giving advice and answering questions. - Bobbi1948

Beautiful county park with water and electric, (dump station on site). Dog friendly beach access is just a short two block drive or walk. Lots of shade from large trees and each site is surrounded by foliage which give some privacy. Don't miss going into the fishing town of Charleston for fresh and fresh canned seafood. - yvspeck

This is a country operated park. It has lots of camping, both RV and tent. It is generally pretty quiet unless the foghorns become active. We never saw a host or employee, so I cannot comment on the staffing. The bathrooms and showers are a disgrace. The showers haven't been maintained or cleaned in a very long time. The baths are slightly better, although the pressure from so many campers is great and the cleanliness is spotty. I understand the baths in the group sites are better, but they are far from most of the campers. - cactuslady

This park was a pleasant surprise. We had a last minute reservation change at another park, and the front office was very kind in accommodating us for 5 days.
We had a very large, level back in site, that we could park our truck next to the fifth wheel, and still had plenty of room.
Seems to be mostly fishermen at this park, so it was very quiet at night.
The fish/ crab cleaning station is flat out amazing. Pots to cook crabs, hot water, cold water, sinks and cutting boards were all in great condition. The fish cleaning station is scrubbed spotless every night.
Usually I never use showers at parks, but due to the seafood smell from my crabbing and clamming, I tried them out. I was very happy with the cleanliness of the showers and bathroom.
Laundry is also very inexpensive here. I think it was $1.50 for a wash, and $1.00 for an hour of drying time.
This is the perfect park for anyone with no children, who wants to fish, crab or clam. It is close to restaurants and a lot of touristy sightseeing and beaches.
On a side note.. If fishy smell bothers you, might be a good idea to find another park.
We will definitely stay here again. - Mr&MrsFulltimers

The park is nice and well maintained but is essentially a parking lot. There is a cannery close by and it is pretty smelly. The staffer was courteous and professional. The town of Charleston is pretty run down. We stayed one night here and moved to get closer to the beach. - jaydubsvw

While this is the type of park we describe as "a parking lot with hookups", the location, huge sites, price, and friendly staff make it one that we look forward to visiting when we want comfort and convenience in the Coos Bay area. The pull-through sites in the center of the park have room for any size RV, a tow/towed vehicle, and a large boat. The other sites are larger than typical RV park sites. It is easy to navigate the park with a big rig, and the 50 amp power doesn't suffer a voltage sag under even heavy loads. The laundry is quite small, but the machines work well. Over the summer, there was a rash of thefts in the park (mostly bicycles and fishing equipment), so they have install combination padlocks on the pedestrian entrances to the park. That's something of a nuisance for walking the dog, especially since they have changed the signs in the park from "Pick up after your dog" to "No dogs on the grass" since the last time we were there. - Denali

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

We asked to be sited near the restrooms for convenience; but that meant we had a LOONG walk to the beachfront....LOL! It's a pretty beach; but folks with ambulatory difficulties might not be able to hike over the dunes in the soft sand to get to it? Other than the trek to the beach, everything else was simply a nice RV park. - Deb344

Oceanfront RV park. Some cabins available. All utilities worked fine. Verizon strong. Great dog beach, hear the surf. Sites have fire ring and table. Sunset Bay Golf Course about 1 1/2 miles. Office staff very friendly and we will return. - silverado

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
