30 Parks near Florence, Oregon
Aug 2014 - $40.00
The new owners/managers/hosts are a big improvement. Unlike the previous ones, they are friendly, positive and responsive. Park upkeep and maintenance is better plus the added security is much better. The only downside it that the park is busier and there is more traffic. Apparently the park has a new cable TV service which has terrible reception on a limited number of channels. - Zippity Doo-Da

This is not an RV park, but a small, old trailer park with a portion set up for RVs. There is lots of paving and little in the way of landscaping. No pull-thrus and only 30 amp electrical. The spaces are narrow and some of the interior access roads are tight. Certainly not big rig friendly. Any RV over 35 ft. would have trouble maneuvering. About half of the RV sites are occupied by permanent residents and some of these are quite old. The park is well taken care of and there is not the clutter that usually comes with permanents. Other than beach walks and a few decent restaurants, there isn’t much to do in Florence, plus the park has only limit services. According to the residents, the couple that is managing the park inherited it a few years ago and have recently listed it for sale. Unless significant improvements are made, we will not return. - Zippity Doo-Da

This is a small, older and very basic combo park. It’s clean and the landscaping is well maintained. There are approximately 30 RV spaces and about the same number of mobile home sites. A majority of the RV spaces are occupied by long termers. The spaces are on the small side, but are adequate for all but the largest RVs. The park has very few amenities. There is only 30 amp service and no pull-throughs or grass areas, just pavement with minimal landscaping. Be aware that the park is not ADA compliant. The park has decent, free WiFi and a small “Rec” building. This building is often used by some of the long term RVers as their personal lounge. Most of the residents are friendly, but the current management is not. We have been coming here for a month or so each summer for the past few years and will return because of the friends we have made here. For those who want or need more, there is a much nicer park just a couple of blocks away. - Zippity Doo-Da

This is a nice campground if you have a small RV or a tent. Big rigs BEWARE! Narrow road with extremely tight turns and low hanging branches will make you sorry that you ever tried this place. We couldn't do it with 36' rig. - SKP

This is a Forest Service CG so therefore does not have hook-ups, but there is an abundant number of faucets spread around the park and very clean restrooms with flush toilets. The sites are very roomy, very level and paved. You are about a 2 mile hike from the quiet beach and the ATV staging area is a short distance down the road (No ATV's allowed in the CG). Verizon service is available but it comes and goes. The price reflects "Old Age Discount". - rhianna

Small park with only 12 sites for travelers, mostly monthlies but very well maintained. Cable and satellite signal good, Wi-Fi signal strong and free. No lake access and no trees. Clean laundry and restrooms. Paved roads with gravel pull thru sites with FHU sites with table, quiet. Well maintained and very friendly and helpful on site managers. We would stay there again. - Pepper Dan

The price is based on a Passport America discount. The campground is located on Hwy 101. Close to Florence--five minutes by car. Nevertheless, it is relatively quiet, even at night. The campground has only few lots. Better phone the owner first. The owner is very nice. There are very good cable TV and Wi-Fi. We did not look at the showers, toilets, or laundry. The place is definitely worth its $15. We will be happy to come back. - usa

An old trailer park with a few spaces for travelers, mostly PA members. What makes this worth $15 is the extensive cable TV, closeness to Florence, and the price. The showers and restrooms are OK, but water reeks of rust. The laundry still has rusty machines that we noticed 2 years ago. If you are desperate enough, this place is tolerable for a night. - Annie's Song

This is a clean, quiet park. Sites are grass and fine gravel, near level, shady, in various sizes. Roads are dirt and gravel, adequately wide, in fair condition with shallow ruts and potholes. Staff are friendly and helpful. Verizon data service works, but can be very slow. Wi-Fi works well. Showers are clean, but the hot water runs out too soon. The rate is total for a back-in with water, electric, and cable. A pull-through with full hookups is $32.70. - wjzcbn

Could use sewer at all sites, rest rooms clean, beautiful lake, very friendly staff. - Mike & Marcia

Stayed over 4th of July for 3 days. This park does Nothing to maintain the place: dirt, gravel, weeds with stickers. The restrooms are pretty iffy at best,t due to local transients hanging around.
Location is good next to Oldtown, but for the price it's poor. - Jerryandsherrie

Lower value rating due to $10 reservation fee. I really hate places like this, they have a full time person on duty during the days and they think they can charge extra for making a reservation. On a short stay, that really gets felt in the nightly rate of $31 for a back in site.
Most sites are fairly level and are hard packed gravel / stone surface. We had a 50 amp FHU with cable. The cable lineup was good, but the picture quality was borderline. The wi-fi was so so, we were getting dropped or not able to get on at all most of the time.
For what they charge, the cable and wi-fi should both be outstanding. But they are both less than acceptable. - Bob and Inga

This was our first visit (April) and after checking in and parking we felt like this was more of a State RV Park. Not many amenities other than easy walking distance to "Old Town. We did stay in site B2, which backs up to our site, so the view from the "B" sites are great. But it is also a Marina so in the summer it may be more of a fishing RV park! Unless you are on the waterfront sites there is no view of the river, other than seeing their big powder blue storage sheds. Not all site locations have full hookups. Gravel roads and site, ours was very level. The staff is very pleasant and made us feel welcome. The location was easy to get to. Since we were here in the Spring, we enjoyed the spacing of other travelers, but from other comments, sounds like the Summer months can be very cramped with lots of people. So we do plan to return this way again, but most likely would choose Spring or Fall. - mandrgames

We were at first taken back by the "parking lot " appearance of the park. (All concrete with small trees between the sites.) But that was quickly gone after going into the office and being warmly greeted by the lady manager! A lovely woman who made us feel welcome, explained the park, showed us around the rec room, and gave us some good info on the surrounding area. The park is tightly spaced, but maneuverable. Convenient to shopping and Old Towne. We were here for only 2 nights, but would definitely recommend this park to anyone traveling through the area. - KSAM14

Very quiet and clean, decent spacing (but close as I'd want to be), laid out to maximize privacy (given it is fairly tight). Plenty of room for slideouts and even awnings (except with the wind, no one used theirs). Level concrete pads, concrete roads. Some trees between sites. Helpful staff guides you to site.
Very windy every afternoon (20+mph). Excellent utilities in pullthrus. Three washers and dryers in rec room, pool table, recliners, restrooms. Some sites had picnic tables.
Slow Verizon data (1 bar 4G), decent AT&T cellular phone and data.
Lots of rules, most of which are common sense. Fenced dog run (small, gravel) with sign saying cctv monitored and failure to pick up after dogs will result in immediate expulsion from park and other parks will be contacted about you as well.
We could park our Jeep across the front of the site, most 5th wheels parked trucks around the park perimeter.
A good number of seasonal and long-term rigs, all well-maintained. Looks like the short-term spaces are pull-thrus in the middle of the park.
A very nice park, we would return. - SW Rick

Easy in and out. Utilities in the center of the site and worked fine. Cable TV was not high definition, so we used our antenna, instead, along with our satellite TV. WIFI was fine most of the time, but every couple of days would just knock us off the Internet. We would disconnect and reconnect and would be fine again for another couple of days. They have picnic tables, but they are not at the sites. In this site there was no room for one because of the shrubbery, but apparently you can request one to be put on your site. Rate shown was for our 6 week stay. - ramblin' vagabonds

The park itself was nice. It was woodsy in most of the loops and we were able to find a spot that allowed for privacy on three sides. There was a clubhouse for kids and one for adults, a nice pool and two hot tubs, a volleyball net and a playground. Wifi only works in the clubhouses, so you see lots of computer use there.
There was a sauna, but in order to use it you had to get a key from the office which was pretty inconvenient to do on a cold night if you were in your towel already.
The roads were narrow, like an average state park loop. The restrooms were not stinky, and I did see them being cleaned once, but I think the cleaning could have been more thorough. There was a beetle in my shower and latches on stall doors didn't work.
The garbage dupsters were really overflowing, which was only a concern because they passed out flyers warning to latch them or bears will arrive!!! They were overful for a good 24 hours before the garbage service came.
We thought the park would be closer to the jetty, but it was five miles, five dollars to park, and poor crabbing. That was disappointing.
We liked the park laundromat and the no-kids-allowed hot tub. The kids loved the swimming pool. They also loved sand boarding at the state park and the go cart place next door, so staying at the state park with a lake to swim in may have been even better. We will do that next time.
I thought this park was too pricey. Maybe if the clubhouses had been fuller, with Foosball and a good library? Dvds to rent? - Mossyfolk

We spent 8 nights here while visiting the Oregon coast. You do have to search a tad if you want a 50 amp full hook up site but we managed to find one that was heavily wooded and even though the adjoining site is close by, you feel totally secluded. Sat reception is very much an issue here...I worked for about an hour with a portable dish to get a signal. Pick your site carefully. The Lodge is very nice with an excellent view of the Ocean across the highway. Wi-Fi worked well at the lodge too. Verizon was weak but usuable with a booster. Good power, water and waste. Behind Whaler's Rest, this would be our second choice. I will return when in the area again. - acampingfan

For a national chain park this one is pretty poor. Check-in was okay but the maintenance guy sitting in the office had to help the staff with explanations and directions to the site. The roads are narrow and hilly. Trying to find your way around and figure out where to turn is confusing and difficult. The sites are nice and cozy but difficult to back into. I watched a guy take the better part of an hour to get his fifth wheel into the site he chose. You're allowed to pick a site then let the office know where you are. - Aldeaux

Same as Lagoon USFS campground. This is a nice campground if you have a small RV or a tent. Big rigs BEWARE! Narrow road with extremely tight turns and low hanging branches will make you sorry that you ever tried this place. We couldn't do it with 36' rig. Only loop A offers electrical hook-ups. - SKP
Sep 2013 - $15.00
The cost reflects Senior Pass + electricity. Lovely park. Although for a 40' MH it was a little tight getting into. It is concessionaire run, rather than volunteer and that probably accounted for the not so clean restrooms. The concessionaires are also responsible for the trimming of the trees too, so that accounts for the scratches on the rig. It is VERY shady in most of the park and most sites turn to mud when it rains. Verizon signal was just OK, had to use the antenna and amp for the internet. But all that being said we appreciated the electricity and enjoyed our weeks stay. - rhianna

Very nice Forest Service campground. Only partially opened when we were here (April), but we walked around the other (closed) loops and everything looked much the same as our loop. 30 amp electric at some sites (like ours); look for "E" on campsite number post. No dump site available. Water at scattered faucet posts (not for hookup--carry a bucket). Running water/flush toilets in restrooms. Very heavily shaded. Our trailer is 34' and we found a site, but I but a lot of the sites would have been too small. The pull-through sites on our loop didn't have electric, our host told us. Don't know about the rest of the park. Some great hiking trails around the campground. Open year round. Fee reflects senior pass discount. - The Accidental Trailerist

Not a whole lot to add. It's boondocking in a casino parking lot. On a positive note, the lot was free, level, clean and randomly patrolled. On the negative side, it may be free but you pay for it by putting up with people who don't particularly "play well with others." Others parked haphazardly, resulting in unsafe conditions, inconvenience and annoyance. For example, in one section most were parked in an east/west orientation when two large Class A motorhomes decided to park north/south, blocking a driveway and limiting access.
We lucked out and grabbed a space along the west edge where we could look out over sand dunes and sawgrass. - LM&TinView

I just wanted to update what others have already said. Yes, this is dry camping in a casino parking lot, but it's free! Free is a very good price! You can even stay up to seven days if you want to although we only overnighted here. It's great to have the casino right there to eat if you don't feel like cooking, and of course to gamble if that's your thing. This is an awesome option to have in your back pocket if you decide to head to the coast on a whim and don't have reservations. - Pdxjoanne

Earlier reviews are good, just updating for 2014. I used this as a base to see the beautiful Oregon coast. Groceries and fuel are readily available. Would certainly stay here again. The price (free) is right! - SailorGolf

First come, first serve park. Beautiful setting and nice paved sites with full hook-ups. Quiet park with spacious, clean sites with a good mix of shade and open space. No cell service. Ocean and beach is 1/2 mile hike from park. Hike to Heceta Head Lighthouse has some steep parts but is well worth it once you arrive. This is one of the nicest parks that we have stayed at but even in mid September it was full by late afternoon. - trump5

We stayed here 3 nights. Very quiet with friendly and helpful camp host and rangers. There are several hikes from the campgrounds to the beach and Heceta Head Lighthouse. No Wi-F- or cable TV. - bahnieb
