29 Parks near Charleston, Oregon
Jul 2016 - $32.00
Nice private sites. No sewer but a dump station. Close to Charleston. Don't look for anybody at the "guard shack" at the entrance. Hasn't been anybody there for years. We made reservations ahead of time on line, but when we arrived I couldn't figure out how to check in. Finally found the park host site but nobody there either, so I just went to my site and hooked up. Nobody ever came by to check with us. - pkight

Camp sites very private with lots of trees and bushes. Quite and peaceful. Mostly Shady, asphalt, dirt, grass sites. - Emmitt123

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

We tent camped on the beach in site T-39 which was a very great site for us. The site wasn't directly on the beach, but nestled behind the sand dunes hidden in the trees protected from the wind off the water. The wind wasn't a factor, but for the other tent sites, I'm sure it could be. Showers clean, plenty of hot water. - Rick Frazier

Its all about location and this park is right on Bastendorf Beach. Park of a small chain of RV parks across the country. (We've stayed at one of their Moab locations). Paved main roads then gravel approach and grass/gravel spacious sites. Some, like ours, had plenty of room to park your toad and even set up a tent if needed.
Be prepared for serious moisture as the coastal mist rolls in almost every evening making everything appear as if there was a downpour overnight. The heat of the day takes the wetness away quickly. No issues with power or water; they have a community dump on the way out (as most beachfront parks do, if at all) which we did not use. Ice, refreshments (including local wine), ice cream and just a few basics available in their store.
The more remote tent sites seemed to be a gathering place for dog walkers who didn't care to pick up after themselves; told the proprietors and they reacted quickly. Will definitely stay here again due to the beach access. - pyrthkr

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

The marina was a pleasant surprise. Everyone who worked there was pleasant and extremely helpful. The sites are all on asphalt which is good at the coast. A lot of the campers are here for the season so it's not unusual to have a motorhome, boat, canopy/carport, and car crammed into a site: but it's a marina so it's what it's built for. The showers/restrooms are older but spotless. While we were here, our neighbor caught two youngsters on bicycles around his truck and called police. The park increased nighttime patrols in response. Overall, a good value and we'll be back! - Travelfish

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

Good if only place available. Probably good for fishermen or full timers but we are neither. Girl in office very nice and we got last spot available. Lots of lotta timers here and fishermen. Showers need a good cleaning but we're large. Clubhouse has funny smell. Would only stay here again if nothing else available. - Rpopeye

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

Made for efficiency without any unique qualities. All basics are neatly tailored out. Level sites. Feeling of a converted parking lot with planting pots & no trees. Place was packed with full timers. Basic amenities were good. - zzzya

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 actually the rate, and a review of, the $15.00 per night parking lot next to the RV park. First, we walked through the RV park and used the showers and restrooms and laundry there. It is a beautiful RV park, right on the bay, and had we planned to be there more than just overnight, we would have stayed there and paid full price. We were only overnighting on our way to a different destination, so the no-hookup parking lot worked just fine. We loved that for a small fee to park there, we could use the facilities next door. The parking area is gravel, and very level. The casino shuttle picks up passengers often. We were pleased. - cbinpa

We've stayed at the Mill Casino many times. But, there is always room for improvement. Most sites are very un-level.
The food in the casino is pretty darn bad!. Be warned!
I did have a Long Island Iced Tea in the bar....very good. $9.00. - off2cthewisard

Stayed here a number of years ago and the park is still the clean nicely groomed park it was back then. We had a back in space which costs less. The hookups are as they should be. The asphalt pad is large enough to park our Jeep with room to spare. The casino is the same; I still lose! The food in the buffet is absolutely awful. Don't bother with that. We would stay here again for a couple of nights. - Kent and Margaret

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
Jun 2016 - $26.00
Nice quiet location. Park was completely full and still had good electric. Absolutely no cell coverage. Bathrooms and showers are older but kept clean. All sites are back-in, no pull throughs. Most sites are perpendicular to camp road instead of angled thus longer rigs could have problems. Nice hedging between sites provides great privacy. Small creek runs through park thus a bit buggy (mosquitos) if winds are calm. Sunset Bay across the road was a bit littered and not that impressive to us. Overall, a notch below other Oregon State Parks we have visited. If you have never been here, it is worthwhile to come. Glad we came but next time we travel the Oregon coast we will probably stay somewhere else. - TravelinTail

Enjoyed having full hookups in a state Park setting. Hosts are very present and helpful. Loved how the park has used shrubs and trees to create quite a bit of privacy at each site! - ktboz

Paved roads and sites. We were in A loop at site 32. The site was fine once we got in. If there had been anyone in any of the sites across from us we'd still be there or never gotten in. There are some sites that a big rig will fit in but choose carefully. They are long enough but it took us 5 cuts to get in and out of our site and I usually nail tight sites in one try. They only had 30 amp service and I thought it was ok and checked out ok at the the pedestal but my computer kept acting up and cutting out. There was no cell service or wifi available from Verizion. The showers were old but clean and had good pressure and lots of hot water. Note on the cost it included a $8 reservation fee. Those were the issues but the park is a great location and if you happen to catch a storm there with big waves it's amazing. - pumper9x9

Stayed here one night as we were tired, but unless you are an ATV person this is not the park for you. Just a big dirt parking lot and lots of dust and very noisy. The staff did, however, tell us this so as an overnight it worked. - EJK

Pretty much a standard KOA. Dirt and gravel roads and sites. Caters to the ATV crowd. Utilities worked well. It tends to get dusty with a lot of vehicle traffic. If your not into ATV'ing then you probably wouldn't like this park. - yachtjockey

Maybe we were lucky, but this park worked well for us. We do not have an ATV, but the ATV'rs were not obnoxious at all--They did cause some noise and dust during the daytime. They honored quiet time from 10PM to 8AM. The park is very dusty, and rather than gravel roads, the roads AND the RV sites themselves, were spread with rather large rocks (very rough gravel, to say the least!) It was interesting to see all the different kinds of ATVs as we knew nothing about them. Showers were very clean and available early, as it seems the ATV folks shower after a long day on the dunes--that is when we saw the lines! We would be willing to stay here again, but saw another park during our day excursions that we would prefer! If you don't want dust and some engine noise, choose another park! This park caters to ATVrs! If you travel almost to Florence, there is a great park where we spent 2 lovely days in the dunes--Woahink Lake RV Resort, for about the same price.
