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.

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.

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 park is beautiful! We only stayed one night but will be sure to stay for at least a week in the future. Very clean throughout the park. Bathrooms were nice and the landscaping makes you feel like you're in the rain forest. Just beautiful. Blackberries growing all over so we picked a bunch and made a fresh blackberry cobbler! Would highly recommend this park to everyone. 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.

This is a great family friendly park. The roads are very narrow, we had trouble getting our 31' travel trailer into our site in the "D" loop. We travel with 3 dogs who love to swim in the water so we had to drive to another beach for this purpose. We camped here the end of July and never did see the sunshine.

2d visit to this park. Pads are blacktop. No cable or TV or Wi-Fi. Some motorhomes had satellite antennas up so may be satellite TV. No cell phone signal. Walk to golf-nice course in valley to the east. Walk to beach and very nice beach park. $24/night for full serviced site. Recommend this park We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground. It would be a '10' if it had Wi-Fi and cable TV. Watching the sunset which gives it its name is a glorious experience. We'll definitely return. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We did not actually stay at the campground. We tried to but could not. When I called while in route I was told there were many spaces available that would hold our 40 foot motorhome. We were 30 minutes out. When we got there, the lady said there was one spot we could get into, it was 40 foot and to drive the motorhome to it and park and come back. We drove in and there was no way we could even try to back it into the spot. Besides, there was another RV already in the spot. The road was too small to hold "big rig" rv's as the state ad said in the Woodall's directory. This campground was listed as one of those that was for "Big Rigs". So, from what we could tell, don't try this park if you are a large rv. In fact a guy at the window behind me said he had a hard time getting his 34 foot trailer in a 38 foot site. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

First of all this park should have been listed under the city of 'Charleston' rather than Coos Bay as it is closer. If you are looking for parks in this area take a look under Charleston to get a better idea of what is available. As with all the Oregon State Parks we have visited this park is well kept and clean. The park lays in a gully and is heavily forested. During the winter months the campground only receives about 1 hour give or take of direct sunlight making the park cold dark and a little claustrophobic feeling. We saw several sites that would accommodate rigs up to around 38' with a toad but over that you are pushing your luck. The nearby hiking trails along the coastal cliffs are a must to see and absolutely beautiful. For the same money we will stay at nearby Bastendorf County Park next time which is identical in appearance but has many more sites that can accommodate larger (up to 40') rigs with ease and has a little less cover and more sunlight. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful and friendly campground but not really suitable for 40 foot motorhome unless you are very lucky. We had reservations and tried two different sites that were technically long enough, but because of the slopes and very tight roads and sites, we had to leave. Would not have had room for our toad. Moved to Oceanside RV, an older park on the beach about a mile away and were quite happy. Enjoyed the beach and hiking here though. Botanical Garden is lovely. Wish we could have stayed here.

Sunset Bay is amazing but we were disappointed with the actual campsite. On the first night there a group of rowdies arrived and kept us awake. The host just across the road seemed oblivious! Does anyone know what these Hosts do? All they did when we were there was sell firewood and they were not very friendly, and wouldn't even make eye contact. The beach is an easy 5 minute walk under the highway, safe yes, but sometimes flooded! The beach is awesome with tide pools to explore and you can take your dog (on leash) on the beach. Ranger will ticket you if the dog is not on leash as some guy found out! The Rangers need to be more active with trouble makers. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are very shaded, cool and always damp even if there is no rain. It is very close to the ocean, about a 5 minute walk and wheel chair accessible. It is a great beach for exploring after the tide has gone out. Dogs are allowed on the beach on leash, watch out the rangers will ticket if you have your dog off leash!

We stayed here for 6 nights due to the beauty of the park and the whole area. The workampers are so friendly there. There are lots of trails to walk the dogs which have great views of the ocean. Don't miss Simpson Reef with so many seals. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

A spectacular setting. Sunset Bay itself is spectacular and there's great hiking and wildlife viewing nearby as well has some spectacular gardens. Most sites are very well shaded. Nearby trails along the rocky coast are amazingly beautiful and a joy to us and our dogs. Although the camp is across the highway from the sea, there's a pedestrian tunnel under the highway making it safe for kids and pets. Some sites are tough to get into with a trailer, and the booking website will let you know which ones might be tough. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.
