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

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 near perfect park. Immediate access to the beach with large sites. The only downside would be only two machines for laundry for the entire park. The park was very quiet at night and close to town. - full timers from Michigan

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

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

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

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

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

Our first stay at a casino rv park. It was much like we imagined: clean, modern, good layout, fair price. But it also had drunks coming home late from the casino and being loud as drunks tend to be. Also, be aware that this located on Coos Bay and while you get a Bay view, you also get the constant 24 hour hum of diesels on the transfer docks nearby.
Might stay here again. - Sir_Charles395

Eleven years ago we stayed at the Mill Casino. At that time it was dry camping and it was free. They have now built an RV park and continue to provide dry camping. We recently stayed five days in the RV park, but the holiday weekend prevented us from getting the final two days. So we decided to move to dry camping for those two days. I have multiple ratings for this casino and RV park. I would rate the RV park at least an 8. The rates were fair for the season and location. We were on a concrete pull thru site that was large enough for the motorhome and car. The wifi was terrible. It was incredibly slow which was very frustrating. The office staff would rate a 10. The dry camping area is a big gravel lot. We see no value in having to pay $15 per night to dry camp. The 'sales pitch' that the rate offers showers, laundry, restrooms, is bogus for us RVers who have self contained units and use none of those 'benefits'. It is greed that drives the casino owners to charge RVers to dry camp. So I would rate the dry camping part of the RV park a zero. Overall, I can only give this RV park a rating of 4. I would suggest the RV park, but avoid dry camping. Go elsewhere for that. - retired2000

Great as usual. Their wifi has improved since our last stay, The staff is polite and professional. The free shuttle service to anywhere in Coos Bay or North Bend is great. There is some road noise from nearby highway 101, but it quiets down at night and never keeps us awake . Sites are super level with good hookups. Sites have foliage between them and are wide enough to park our trailer and truck side-by-side. We really appreciate a professional RV park, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area. - Washoezephyr

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. Check it out!! - Barnycat
