30 Parks near Coos Bay, Oregon
Sep 2016 - $36.00
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

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

If you are looking for a place that allows unneutered pit bulls to run loose and a party atmosphere that goes until all hours of the night then this is the place for you! If you mention to the park host about dogs running loose then they threaten to kick you out. If you don't like the loud partying until 2 am every night then the park host also threatens to kick you out. The showers are difficult to use due to the push button that goes off every 30 seconds. The sites are pretty level and it has good access to the dunes. There was adequate space between sites. There is no dump station for at least 5 miles in either direction. So if you are going to stay for more than a few days then that is a problem. We left 3 days early due to the dogs that were running loose. We have a very small dog and with loose pit bulls, it is a concern every time you want to walk your dog that is on a lease. If the park rules were enforced then it would be a nice place to camp. - MrsCrashsmith191

Great place for the ATV/Off-Road enthusiast! Easy access to the dunes and the spots were great. Ride in the sand all day and rest within the trees on large and level sites. And the camp hosts are very friendly and always accessible. - W. Bates

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

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

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 is our second year in a row (maybe 5th time overall) staying here. My review of 8/15 gives a fuller description of the park facilities. We had a pull through, FHU site in the middle of the north end of the park. Most sites (60+) are pull through with about 30 back in sites on the north, west, and south perimeters of the park. There is dry camping in a gravel lot to the west. Roads and sites are asphalt (NOT concrete as a previous reviewer stated). The PT sites are long enough for most rigs to stay hooked up but the asphalt is wide enough for parking the toad next to the RV. The BI sites are also paved wide enough for side by side parking of the toad. Many sites appeared to be using extra blocks and we needed one board to level. All sites have 30 channel cable TV. All the PT sites appear to be satellite friendly, but some of the BI sites may not be. The WIFI was bad at first but it eventually worked well enough for our minimal (e-mail and surfing) needs. It slowed but continues to work after dark even though the park was full. The modern bathrooms, showers, and laundry are in the same building as the office. Except for some horseshoe pits on the bay side of the park, there is nothing recreation available in the park. There is a small indoor casino hotel that is available to RV customers. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. I saw several recycling bins but, the way they were labeled, it was unclear as to whether or not they accepted plastic. - Jerry S

Stayed at the gravel parking lot near their RV park. You are required to check in at the RV Park and pay a $15 charge for anyone staying overnight in the parking lot. The lot is level and the shuttle to the casino runs close by but the walk is short too. They allow you to use the RV parks restrooms, showers, dump station, water and wifi.
The explanation is that the charge keeps out the homeless and those who would live in the parking lot. It is a popular place and we have been coming here for years before they started charging to camp in the parking lot. They did use to have people in broken down rigs living in the parking lot. I think security could take care of that but the $15 charge seems to do the trick as well as bring in more money.
I've never seen any security which would be nice. In the summer on the weekends the parking lot can be very full. - catrst

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

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

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
