22 Parks near Depoe Bay, Oregon
Aug 2016 - $48.00
Has both wooded and oceanside/oceanview gravel sites with the ocean sites on three terraced levels. Lower two levels have on-site parking, but have a road between sites and ocean. Upper level has unobstructed view but sites are narrow and tow vehicle parking in adjacent lot; however, visitors often park in those spots so no space for registered vehicles. Rest rooms and showers clean and modern with one facility in wooded area and another by the ocean sites. Well-stocked store and friendly and cooperative staff. Tip on reserving ocean sites...prime sites (88-94) are taken a year out...we have reserved our site for 2017. - CobberHerk

Clean, well-kept park. Gravel roads. Spaces somewhat tight. Beautiful beach. There is a tree hanging slightly into the road that we managed to scrape with the top edge of our fifth wheel when we were attempting a wide turn! (Apparently, we weren't the first--large area of bark scraped off.) Ended up costing $7000 to repair. Thank goodness for insurance! - fifth wheeler

Really, nice, clean, well kept park. Seems to be a park geared more for the retired, over 55 crowd with either motor homes or trailers/5th wheels.
Nothing for kids to do other than ride a bike or play on the beach. No playground, pool, or hot tub.
Sites are REALLY close together. Parking for 'extra' vehicles seems to be a problem at the sites and you cannot park in front of your rig.
We probably won't be back until we don't own a pickup camper because they don't let you off load your camper from the pickup. Doesn't matter if you lower it to the ground or not, NO OFF LOADING. We knew this coming in. If you plan a week here and have a truck camper, we'd recommend you find a park that let's you off load...unless you don't mind being 'trapped' or having to disconnect each time you want to go
The showers --yes, they are tile, private and super clean, HOWEVER, the water runs for only 15 seconds before you have to push the button again...and again....and again...until you're finished. We understand the 'save water' aspect, but please set the run time for 60 seconds.
The 'quiet after 10pm' rule doesn't seem to be enforced in this VERY close to your neighbor campground. When your neighbors are drunk and loudly laughing around their propane campfire at 11:30pm, it's a little (LOT!) irritating.
While we didn't have any difficulty on the trail to the beach, a handicapped or elderly person who has difficulty walking would not make it to/from the beach.
Clean! Clean! Clean! We can't say enough about how clean and well kept this park is. They even sweep the errant rocks from the roadways back into the sites AND they rake the sites after people leave. Nice, level sites, too.
The woman in the office is really, really nice and helpful.
The store has basic things, nice gifts and ICE CREAM!!!!! - TCsCabin

Zero privacy. So close together you share a panic table. Left without even hooking up. Not close to the ocean, unless you risk your life crossing Hwy 101.
Sorry Forgarty, we will never return. - Jim Morgan

An older park that is in desperate need of TLC. The office and bath house/laundry room were not clean, the dumpsters were overflowing, and landscaping has not been maintained. Layout is very awkward for today’s larger RVs to easily navigate in/out of sites. WiFi is flaky, at best. On the upside, the park is in close proximity to the beautiful Pacific Ocean and just a short distance from the quaint town of Depoe Bay. - Ann M.

First the good news! Depoe Bay and the neighboring cities are beautiful and the area, itself is lovely with spacious beaches. Now for Fogarty Creek RV Park. The park is mainly for year round residents and while most of them are well maintained, some are not. The spaces for the over-nighters are in the middle of the park surrounded by the previously mentioned year round lodgings and are exposed on all sides with very few trees. The feeling is like that of being on stage with little or no privacy. The cement slabs are in a direct line with each other and if you don't have either a front or back slab but rather a middle slab I have no idea how you would be able to place your trailer. The park has absolutely no personality and we would not return. - TwelveOaks

The entrance to the park is a steep driveway compared to most, but very doable. The first sites are a little rough and look like permanent residents. There is a row of sites that are along the river and basically quite nice.
Not much here. 10 miles north to Lincoln City or 10 miles south to Depoe Bay. No wifi and cable is poor quality. The maintenance guy was very helpful. Propane was $2.70 gal.
We saw lots of herons on the docks and an occasional seal swimming in the river raising havoc with the fishermen.
Looking for a rustic park on the river, this is that. - Alpenlite35RK

It is a gorgeous location but they got too greedy and crammed everyone up too close together. So you cannot really enjoy any of your own space. Lovely river and boat, fishing dock right behind our space( 22). the WiFi from our spot was impossible. They said we would have to walk down to the office if we wanted to connect. We were at the other end of the park. For some reason we lost the spot we were supposed to be in (12) when we made the reservation. There were many campfires, which surprised me because I thought there was a ban on burning because of the drought. the fishermen start very early in the morning and since our site (22) was backed up to the dock you were awakened by them talking and such before 6:00 AM. - beach89bum

This is a small park right on the Siletz River near Lincoln City, Oregon. Older park with beautiful setting. The amenities are limited. There are 20+ riverside sites. and probably 3 times as many smaller sites just back from the river. There are plenty of tent sites. There are several "tree Houses", basically small KOA style cabins on stilts. There is only one bathroom but there are several porta-potties scattered around for the tent sites. The Wifi is marginal and the owner turns it off at 9:30 at night. Only scant Verizon cell service and no ATT that I could see with my tablet. Seems like several families camping in tent sites. I think many of the clients are fishermen. No dog run, but plenty of places to walk the dog. - Nat02

I agree with the review stating the park has seen better days. I had a site H26 which was a very tight spot that did not allow me to open my slides the entire way. The worst thing about my stay was the fact that I'm guessing because it was a Friday there were a lot of large extended families and friends and neighbors at adjoining sites making it a very busy area in addition to having kids riding around all day ( with plastic training wheels ). I would not stay here again. - twowoofs

Many recent posters have hit the nail on the head. It's shady, in a rain forest, the roads and pads are uprooted by the trees making for a rough ride and difficulty leveling, etc. The thing is, this park is great! The park service is allowing nature to do its thing while we get to enjoy the park this has become. I have camped here for at least 50 years as a child and into senior citizenship and it has changed over that time. Embrace the rough edges of the campground and enjoy the beach! - RickB

This is an old state park back in the forest. It is VERY busy so if you like a quiet park this isn't the place. The sites have asphalt to park your RV that are old and very uneven due to tree root growth. Make sure you bring plenty of boards for leveling. We needed all we had. No cell service or air TV in the area we were (loop F), if that matters to you. We wouldn't stay again or recommend this park to our friends. Way too rustic for our liking. - Ellie from Yakima WA

Previous reviews have given this FREE place to put your RV a low rating. No wi fi and only partial ocean view for free?- go figure. Tonight we have a beautiful Pacific sunset in a place that is safe and easily handles a 45 ft rig. You can go up the street for $50-or $120 in Newport per nite if you like. Sometimes I wonder about expectations when there is no cost. - P-rave-o

We have a 45' coach and must be level in order to extend our slides. Our size and leveling limitations eliminates many choices of locations. We had reserved for one week, but when we were guided to our site in a large, low lying, field they took us to a spot covered with 2"-3" of water. We were told that it poured the prior two days. Duh: it is Oregon! I would have had to stand in 2"-3" of water to disconnect the toad, attach the power cord, and connect the sewer. We returned to the office for a refund and departed, never to return again. - Don A

All roads are gravel or dirt. The office, store and clubhouse are a half mile away from the campground. Because it had rained, all roads had standing water and mud. Staff were great, though. The 30 amp power shut off 6 times during the night. Very annoying. - ta96silver

This park is a Passport America park, which is how we found it. It is several miles off Hwy 101 and sits on a pretty river. The turn into the campground was tight. We were unable to find any personnel, although I went to a trailer and a building both marked "office", and while at first the place looked okay, while I looked for a host, I realized there was no sign of any short term stays. Every unit there looked long term and the empty grassy sites did not look as if they had been used recently. - The Accidental Trailerist

This park is in a quiet rural area just east of Taft, south of Lincoln City proper and away from the beach. I would call it a campground rather than a park or resort. The office is out of the way and no RVs are allowed on the office access road (cars okay), but it was open until 9pm. Check in is easy once you get there. RV parking is side by side on gravel, around the edges of the access road and backing up to a huge grassy area.
Water and electric hookups only, with a dump station on the exit driveway. There are picnic tables and it looks like there were fire rings that have been removed. Many large, old trees are scattered around, though the area is mostly sunny and open. Restrooms are very old, but very clean, the women's shower was tiled and good sized, don't know about pressure or temperature as we didn't use. There are meeting spaces for groups, but no other attractions. Very quiet and sunnier and warmer than the coast. We would definitely stay here again. - Karengoes

Very lovely campground close to all the activities we enjoy in Lincoln City and Newport! The park was clean and the on site managers were very friendly in helping us locate our space. We had questions about finding the Drift Creek Falls hike during our stay and they were able to direct us easily as to where we needed to go.
Overall, this campground was tucked back off of highway 101 which we liked but still close enough to get to grocery stores and our favorite hiking trails. - Stevie P

OK for the price. Would have been happier if the sun ever came out, but it is a pretty, quiet rural setting. We missed having internet and TV (you need satellite). Verizon cell signal was weak. Bathhouse was a cold concrete block, but plenty of hot water. Nice diversion from busy Hwy 101. - Annie's Song

Very peaceful, lots of green lawn (formerly a 5-hole golf course). Must be an Elk's member to stay. Had a nice Labor Day weekend breakfast put on by the lodge. There are 4-legged elk around though we didn't see any this time. Close to south end of town. Great campground for pet owners. Also picked a pan of blackberries. - Hungry Horse Android

Always pleasant to stay at the Elks member campground in Lincoln City at Wapiti Elks. Does not have a the whistles and bells but is very relaxing. It is in a wood setting and is so great. The keeper of the grounds is so nice. - M & M

This park is across busy highway 101 and about 150 above the beach. Work campers are all very friendly and helpful. Sites are somewhat tight and parking for toads or tow vehicles is difficult. The site itself is paved with a small grass strip between you and your neighbor. Enough room to put out your slides and awnings with a little extra. Not bad considering the location near the beach. The park is clean with plenty of nice landscaping that makes it appealing. Utilities work good with great cable. Wifi was not usable but Verizon 4G worked well. There are two fenced dog parks - one at the top of the hill and one at the bottom near the entrance. The one at the top is small and shaded with an attempt at grass but this one is nasty. Nasty to the point it stinks! So we walked our pups to the bottom of the hill where there is a larger graveled lot that is much more pleasant. The park is OK for the price in this area and I would stay here again if in the area. - Pjoe

This is a beautiful motor coach resort on the shore of the Pacific Ocean. It is a very clean, well-manicured facility. The sites are spacious, with most either surfaced with concrete or pavers. The roads are paved and easy to navigate. The resort has gated access to enhance security. The utilities worked well except for the Wi-Fi which was nonexistent. When we checked in we were told to go to the clubhouse or office if we needed Wi-Fi. This is not acceptable, especially at this very high priced motor coach resort. They need to spend some of their inflated rental fees on a good high speed Wi-Fi system and make it available throughout the park.
Beach access is down a moderately steep long path with steps along the way. It is fairly easy to get down but not at all easy to walk back up. It is not handicapped accessible.
For those who are not familiar with the Oregon coast be warned, it is not a warm area. We were surprised to find that daytime temps in the summer average around 60 - 65 degrees with strong winds blowing most of the day. It is also very foggy many days. Don't expect to be able to sit out on the beach in your swim suit and relax. You need at least a light jacket almost every day throughout the summer. - Fire344

Very nice RV resort located on the ocean side of highway 101 near Newport and other central Oregon coast attractions. On-line reservation system worked well and friendly and efficient check in with escort to site. All sites are back-in or pull-in, no pull-through sites. Sites are concrete, open, spacious, and separated by grass or landscaping. Amenities include two pools, laundry rooms, a meeting room, modern bathrooms and showers. There are hiking trails and a path to the large, nearly deserted ocean beach. The whole park is well maintained. - JoyceM
