Nice park in a small canyon that stays pretty cool. There is often morning fog. There is no cell service here but it is available a short drive away. Lots of scenic views and sites in the area. Good crabbing at Charleston. Unfortunately because of wildfires in Oregon, the state park instituted a policy banning campfires in all of Oregon. Although we understand the concern, the state park Director should have made allowances for some of the coastal state parks. With the fog and light rain/mist one couldn't have started a wildfire with gasoline! Park rangers patrol almost constantly. Safe and clean park. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Crab fishing in Charleston. Good restaurants in Charleston and Coos Bay. Oregon Coast dunes to the north. Enjoy views and beautiful flower gardens at nearby Shore Acres State Park and Cape Arago State Park.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
