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.

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.

We loved it here! The only reason we didn't give it a 10 is because there is NO cell phone service here. The park is run very well by a friendly staff (we especially liked a particular host)! We recommend this park and liked the full hook-up site we were assigned (there's plenty of vegetation between sites for privacy) and would definitely stay here again! We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great park. All trees and nice spaces, but they are a bit narrow for a big rig like mine. The beach is a bit of a walk but it is spectacular. All this place needs is Wi-Fi and it would be a 10. It was a great spot for the end of our trip. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

With only a couple of faults this is still a real gem. Many of the sites are a tight fit, but at least they try to encourage the use of size appropriate sites so you don't wind up with a class B in a 40' site and a larger unit gets turned away because there is nothing left that it will fit in. We squeezed our 55'LOA selves into a site rated 51' max. Beautiful park, left as natural as possible. Looks like it was laid out in the pre slide out era so sites can be tight, especially for slides on both sides rigs. Picnic tables are disgusting, as they are in many parks. Looks like they have never been cleaned. In the shaded and very damp park the tables are so yucky you don't even want to sit at them. A simple job of going around a few times a season with a pressure washer would do wonders for the tables. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The drive through town was quite seedy. But, the campground was far enough outside town. Great coastal beauty. Accessible tide pools. Great botanical garden. Maybe 20' between sites, but vegetation create privacy. Friendly staff. Would camp here again. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

No 50 amp service, was disappointed but we still stayed. Friendly staff and residents. Planned on staying longer but with no 50 amp we just stayed the one night. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground, however they had said big rig were not a problem so we picked a site that was one of the largest. The park layout is OK, however the sites are a straight back in, not on a slant, so yes it was difficult to get the 40' 5er into the spot, but we did it. The cell phone reception is very poor. We had to go down to the beach in able to make a call, so our cellular data card didn't work to well either. We couldn't pick up any TV and there would be no way to get your dish sighted in. The trees here are very tall and a lot of them. There are no sites that are not always shaded. The other thing that really bothered me is they only a few sites with sewer, but they don't have a dump station for the camp, AT ALL..? Other than those things it's a beautiful camp about 1000' from the beach, nice paved walking/biking trails, up the road is a beautiful botanical garden that is part of the state parks so your entrance fee is your campground parking tag. All in all not a bad spot. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I don't remember the exact amount we paid, but it was close to $25. We stayed here in a 40' RV. It was a little tight, but we made it. It is a nice campground & you can walk to the beach. There were tons of blackberries growing when we were there. The gardens at Shore Acres were very pretty. There were still roses in bloom & the Dahlias were spectacular. It was a close drive to Bandon, Coos Bay & Charleston. We didn't get cell, internet, or TV so we did a lot of reading when we weren't out sightseeing. If you're using a GPS, be careful, ours took us off 101 & Across a very narrow, winding road with low hanging trees. Not good with a big rig. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Another favorite park of mine to go to. We always get one of the first three spots on the right as you come in because there you can get cell service and HD TV. If you are only spending one night, this is kind of a drive back in there on windy roads, but for three or four days its worth it. Great Park. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park located right on Sunset Bay with great hiking and tide pools just a walk away. We stayed in site b03 and was secluded with lots of greenery and bushes between sites. No TV reception and due to trees no satellite signal. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
