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
This park is located on Highway 101, which is divided by a low curb barricade. Thank goodness there are "turn arounds" in case you miss the turnoff to the park, it's easy to do whether you are going north or south. The park has "park models" for rent around the perimeter. The RV slots are in the center of the park, with pull-throughs at the front and back-ins at the back of the park. If you want a "pull-through," I hope you know how to parallel park your RV. I'm not kidding! The camp host called it "ice tray parking." I had an "end" spot and the end spot pull-throughs are easier to get into, but if you are in an end spot, you run the risk of someone "clipping" your RV when they drive around the corner. If you don't want to deal with all that, get a back-in spot. As for the "beach access" advertised, first you make a mad dash across a very busy Highway 101, then walk a short distance down a side street, then take a footpath to Fishing Rock State Park, a day use area, which features a cliff where you can look down to the ocean and adjoining beaches. (I don't know if rapelling is legal there...) If you walk a few blocks south, you can get to the beach that way. The park has wireless, but it is unsecured and fades in and out. There is a restaurant next door where people can sit in the parking lot and use the RV park signal. The restrooms and laundry were clean. The washers have two different prices, $1.00 and $1.25, but it didn't appear that the two different prices meant that they were larger or smaller. Dryers were $1 but didn't dry very well on one cycle. There is a good grocery store within walking distance if you need to replenish any needed food or items. - DXSMac
The front terraces are to die for. In a motorhome, the windshield became our big-screen, as the ocean is literally a stone's throw in front of you. The beach access is good; not something for a person with walking limitations worse than using a walking stick as I sometimes do. Nice store, limited but good (had a shower hose failure, and they had a replacement in stock). Sites are level and big enough to park your dinghy beside your rig. But- it's all about the view! We've been here before, and we'll be back. - csvreno
When we review an RV Park, we try to set a # rating in comparison to others in the area. Our nightly rate is "Good Sam" discount. When we set up, our very long TV cable would not reach our trailer hook up (because the outlet was at the front of our site, but we managed to run the cable under the trailer to the next site, that had two hook ups at the back of the site. You should be aware that toilet flushing affects the shower flow. There are 48 decent TV channels on cable, and about 6 HD channels OTA. Thankfully, the managers are strict about cleaning up after your dogs. There is a short well maintained path walkway to the beach, with a doggy station at the top. Sites are a bit uneven, but RVers should know, and if not, learn to deal with that. The park is very quiet at night, and we got the most restful sleep here, on this trip. We would stay here again when passing through. - Snoet
This was our 3rd stay at this park, and the best site yet (#89); it was a great easy back-in with a wonderful view of the ocean, though mother nature (fog) was not as cooperative. Luckily, it was cool enough not to need 50 amp power for A/C. Site was fairly level and good width. No real privacy between sites, as a small motorhome was pulled in adjacent, so they had to turn around to utilize their sewer. The staff is very friendly. Didn't try their Wi-Fi, good cell service for our hotspot. Will return again, especially if we can get this site. - nw explorers
