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! We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Lots of good hiking. Great shore hike to do especially if there's big storm. Huge waves that hit the rocks and then explode above the level of the cliffs.

One of our favorite Oregon state parks. Perfectly situated just across the street from the beach at Sunset Bay. Our full hookup site was spacious and all of the utilities worked well. The park roads are wide and level making it easy to walk the dogs around the park. Park staff and campground host are very helpful and know the surrounding area well. Host drives through the campground in the evening selling firewood. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Be sure to drive up the hill to Simpson Reef to view and hear the sea lions and elephant seals that gather just off shore. Also, on the same road is Shore Acres state park where your camping pass get you access to the beautiful gardens.

I wanted to add my review because of the discrepancy of sizes of the sites. It's true that all the sites here are not suitable for big rigs but we're in a 40 footer and d6 and some others were fine for us. Having said that we skirted the bushes that lined the D loop to get to our site . It is pretty tight to navigate . We were a walk-in and I had a back up down the street if this didn't work out. As it turned out we were very happy! I'm pretty sure this is what we paid. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the best state parks we've been to. Location is great, it's quite and close to great trails and views. Lots of blackberries to pick ;)

Water pressure was great, the spaces are big enough. No cell reception in the campground but outside less than a mile there's reception. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites are very tight, as well as the roads are very narrow, very difficult for big rigs, especially fifth wheels. Would recommend going somewhere else. The area is quite beautiful, the sites are private, staff is helpful and beach is gorgeous. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a lovely state campground in a beautiful area. The rangers are very helpful. Sites aren't too close together and have trees/shrubs in between. Nice to have fire rings for each site. Sunset Bay is state park is more than just the campground and it is all beautiful. There's a fabulous hike along the ocean bluffs from the campground to shore acres. Can't wait to come back. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is about a five minute walk to the beach which is a natural bay and it looks like safe, shallow water. Lots of kids swimming in the water when we were there. No TV or Wi-Fi, but it is a beautiful location. Very private sites with bushes and shrubs for separation. Just a few minutes drive to Cape Arago and the Shore Acres botanical gardens which were wonderful We saw two whales very close to shore when we were there. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Very densely wooded campground with narrow roads. Our 40' 5th wheel had no business being up in there but they have sites for big rigs. We got lucky and slid into site A4, right by the entrance and the road was barely wide enough to back into our site. There is absolutely NO AT&T cell service or TV antenna here. So, no TV, no cell, no internet, none.at.all. It was very muddy and soggy and judging by the greenery and new growth on hedges, it must be pretty wet all the time. You'd never know you were ½ mile from the ocean but you're very close to Sunset Bay Beach, Cape Arago, and the botanical gardens. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The spaces are very tight for larger RV's. We could hardly fit into a site. The beach is BEAUTIFUL! And the staff was very helpful!

We only stayed one night. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice Oregon state park. Parking pads are mostly level. Excellent separation between sites with lots of trees and shrubs. Although we had rain one day, the site stayed relatively dry with no standing water. I would recommend that you choose your site carefully, as many are at a right angle to the roadway making backing up a challenge. We had to go the wrong way on the access road in order to get settled in our site. It was no big deal, just something to be aware of. Many of the sites on the outside of the A and D loops are at a much better angle for backing in to. Many of those sites also have water, sewer and electric, while the interior sites are water and electric only. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Good quiet site with lots of bays in small groups, all with tables and fire rings. Check in was a bit of a hoo-ha but the site was well worth it. Would definitely return. Note the site fee includes entrance to the nearby botanic gardens. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park along the Pacific Coast. The park has a protected beach with a great sunset view and hiking trails connect it to two other lovely state parks. An enjoyable nine hole golf course is next door. The park is near Coos Bay but feels isolated and peaceful. This was an excellent and relaxing spot. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Another great Oregon State Park. This time we picked a spot right up by the entrance and I don't know if this was the low point of the park, but the ground was very, very soggy and mushy, and they hadn't had any rain so it wasn't because of rainfall it was just very mushy, this made for walking around the campsite very muddy and nasty. You are in a dead zone as far as cell service and TV reception. Our stay was very nice, but it wasn't as nice as we had in the past because of the spot we were in. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.
