17 Parks near Florence, Oregon

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

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

We were attracted to this park because of its out of town location, that it had a Tavern, and a store with a deli. Only part of this is factual. The park has 10 or 12 back-in sites on the lake front, some on grass and some on gravel. The Tavern is real and on given nights the locals enjoy a few cool ones. The store and deli appeared to be no more than a few sacks of chips on a wall and a cooler with a few sodas, a loaf of bread and cheese. The restrooms are the biggest down side. There is one (1) for each sex. They are not heated and there is no shower curtain. The showers remind you of a forest service location but this is a Marina that caters to folks that fish. The plus side of this niche park is the rustic atmosphere with Wi-Fi. The lake views are nice, and there is TOTAL lack of sound at night. The wi-fi was 90% good with speed. After 8PM on the last night it slowed to a crawl. We were going to go to another park in town but returned to this one. There is also a question on the rates. When I first called the lady said it was $26/night. The total came to $28.99 which includes a glass of Bud. The 2nd night I paid in the office/store. The teenage girl told me the rate was $29. I told her of our last night’s stay and then she decided the total fee was $27 which included the Tax. This park is not for 80% of the people that travel. If you like to watch clouds, birds and listen to quiet, this is it, with Wi-Fi. - rossby

We had a beautiful lakeside site although it was a bit small and the neighbors very close. One set of restrooms was terrible, the other great. The fishing during August is pretty bad according to some locals. The manager was nice and helpful but the kids working in the office were clueless and no help at all. A tavern is onsite although it was quiet, thank God. - Auburn Fisherman

Florence Elks club have 2 RV Parks, one at the Elks Lodge and a park like setting approximately 3 miles north of Lodge. We stayed at the RV park north of town Nice campground with clean bath rooms and showers. The park hosts were the best. They are very friendly and tried to meet any of your needs. I had RV problems and even though they were full, the hosts made sure I had a space for the three extra days it took to get my RV fixed. Wifi was good with our booster antenna. Park has a cell phone amplifier at clubhouse so you can use cell in the lodge only. The clubhouse also has a landline available for local calls which really helped. Each spot have bushes dividing sites. Dog friendly. Most sites can get satellite reception. We would stay there again. The one drawback was that did not have sewer at site. - Mac1

Dog friendly, Verizon iffy, but strong in meeting hall(Booster) WI FI strong, cable TV but over the air digital Strong. Satellite views at some sites. Very quiet. Office staff very helpful. Ocean Dunes Golf Course and SeaPines Golf Course about 4 miles. Will stay again. - silverado

Sites not close to being level. Cable tv present but not usable. One needs to get a cable box from the lodge which has very limited hours. Tried three boxes each one with an error message saying the service has been interrupted. No host available. All sites are in a parking lot with view of the back of lodge and garbage bins. Ok for one night. - Mainlygoing

This is a very nice county park located above the north jetty. Sites are paved, back-in, and sheltered from the winds by the long hedge rows of rhododendrons and trees. Reservations are advised. Site 9 is about 70' long; the longest one in the park according to the on-site caretaker. If you have slides, position your rig in the center of the site so you don't bump up against the plants. New sites and WiFi are coming in 2016. Our Verizon MiFi worked moderately well. - DiplomatTraveler

Park has paved roads and sites. Sites vary in length, and fit a 37 foot motorhome with toad. Trees between sites for privacy. Only one site has a view of the ocean. Close to beach. Water and cell good. Power low in the morning. No sewer, but dump station. We would stay here again. - kmgulf

We expected no pool, no cable, no sewer hookup. Park is a 10 for us based on site space, privacy, asphalt roads and pad, cleanliness, and information on reservation site being accurate. Access to tidal pool area, views of South Jetty, great place to walk the dog. Quiet, reservations provide for no refunds so be prepared. The best we've seen between Depoe Bay and Coos Bay now that Pacific Shores is in decline. - deandec

This is a quiet park located a little off the beaten path. The sites are gravel, but separated from the adjacent sites by a row of bushes and trees, adding to the privacy. Most sites have full hookups but it appears some have only water and electric. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They clearly take pride in the park. The Wifi is good but occasionally slow, probably when lots of people are using at the same time. This is just like I've experienced at most other RV parks. There is Verizon cell service, but data rates are a little slow. It is a short pleasant walk to the beach. It can get pretty windy on the beach but it is notably calmer and warmer just a few blocks away in the park. Some sites have a clear shot for satellite TV but many have trees to the south. However, sites have cable TV. There is no dog run, but there are plenty of nice places to walk near the park. This park is one of my all time favorites. We are making our reservations now for next year. - Nat02

Nice smaller (older) park with gravel and dirt roads and sites. Not really pet friendly with no pet area. Beach access is not quite as close or easy as advertised. Could use some overall cleanup and maintenance. - yvspeck
Aug 2014 - $36.00
Very nice park. Some sites are small but all private. The staff was very friendly and helpful despite the fact they were full and very busy. The mini-mart on site was a big plus. It is a 2/10 mile walk to the beach. The restroom was immaculate, fresh, modern, and cared for. My wife used the shower ever day; helpful on getting the day started. We would definitely stay here again. - Jimmytheshoe

We stayed in an "old growth" forest site with electricity and water, which was beautiful. We ended up staying 5 days instead of 3 which was planned. My husband used his kayak on the day use lake and had a great time. You can walk to the dunes. - Jan and Bruce

Another great Oregon State Park. Like lots of state parks finding sites for our 34" motorhome can sometimes be a challenge, particularly heavily treed sites. With some searching found a good site and with some maneuvering around were able to get backed in and fit the tow. The 30 amp service and water worked fine. During the summer season reservations would be wise/necessary. Very nice park with lots to do and close to Florence with even more to do. Host and park rangers were excellent, including management's decision to discount the site because of 30 amp breaker problem we caused. - RPWAINC

Great campground! We opted for partial service (no sewer). Treed site - couldn't really see neighbours. Paved roads throughout park and paved parking area at each site.
Bathrooms were old but clean. Showers were at the end of building with separate entrances. We didn't use showers so cannot comment, but there was a handicap shower.
Staff at booth were excellent. We were told we could go find a site and come back and register. We took clerk's suggestion for a site, "but if you don't like it, come back and tell us which one you want." Very accommodating. Not sure it's like this in the height of summer!
Only negative was no wifi, but we knew that Oregon SPs do not offer it - maybe one day. Our cell service worked (from Canada). Not sure which US carrier.
We would definitely stay here again - it's a lovely spot and right in the Dunes Recreation Area. - DCM/JMB
Aug 2015 - $20.00
I stayed in site 33, very secluded, in a 21' motor home, more than enough room, but would be cramped in a 28' rig or greater. Sites are separated by shrubbery. Gravel interior roads and sites, but level. WiFi works well, but cellphone is poor at best. Managers are very friendly and helpful. Great park. However, this is an Elks park and membership is necessary. Well used park, so reservations are needed. - Old RVer
Jan 2014 - $25.00
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
Aug 2013 - $11.00
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
Aug 2015 - $17.00
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
Oct 2014 - $15.00
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
Jun 2013 - $30.00
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
May 2012 - $27.00
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

Cement all around so do not have to get muddy when hooking and unhooking. A bit of a mix up when we checked in. There were 2 of us in separate rigs and they had us spread out through the park and we had specifically requested to be parked together and they said no problem. However when we arrived that was not the case but they fixed it and we ended up parked next to each other as requested. We liked it well enough to make reservations again for this coming July. We hope it goes better this time. I will call again just to make sure. The owner was very nice and assured us that would happen. Small dog area but perfectly adequate. Close to town as we have a car so no issue. Good Wi-Fi, Verizon worked well there. We will definitely come back. - KMB

We picked this spot for an overnight as the weather called for rain, rain and more rain. It is all concrete, asphalt and rock. No soft surfaces to get mired in or mud to track into the trailer here! The gentleman who checked us in was very friendly and informative. The sites are close together, asphalt with gravel and shrubbery in between each. Our pad was perfectly level - great for easy packing up in the rain. The restrooms/showers were recently remodeled and were very nice. Despite being close to the road, it was extremely quiet at night...and there is NOT a lot of lighting to shine in the windows and keep you awake. There is coffee in the a.m. in the rec room. The wifi was spectacular, despite the full park. We were able to stream a movie. - ALbums

RV Pad- tall yard hydrant with pull handle, looks freeze-proof.
First utility water hydrant, then electric, then sewer -flush to ground concrete. All about mid site.
RV Park has quiet neighbors. A church on one side behind a tall wooden fence. A storage unit on the west side.
Bathrooms- open 24/7 with security code. Recreation room and laundry are all in the same access door.
Bathroom- toilet seat covers provided. Shower hoses with deluxe muti-spray shower heads and shutoff switch on head.
Garbage dump on exiting park to keep odors out of park.
Picnic tables available on request.
Nice neighborhood east of the park for walking or bicycle to Grocery Outlet. Spruce Street continues to south end of town, allowing town access off highway.
Local bus stop in front of park. The next 2 bus stops are BiMart and Fred Meyers.
Road in front of park has some grass for dog walking.
Mature rhododendron shrubs.
No grass, no mower noise. - airtravel

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

The sites are right on top of each other. For example, our sewage hose was in the middle of the next site. This is a fish camp period. We will never go back to this RV park. Only restrooms are by the office a long ways away from most sites, unless you want to use a portable toilet. - duanek
Jul 2015 - $28.00
This park has the potential of being a great one due to the location, but gravel, dust, dry grass and ugly storage sheds make the park less than spectacular. It's OK to stay in the treed section with hookups and is convenient to town via a short walk. The port spends zero dollars on this park and it shows. Could use some TLC. - Jerryandsherrie

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
Aug 2015 - $1.00
The park is not in great shape. Lots of logging has been done, with little clean up. Very few FHU sites and most are quite small. Our 32 foot coach just fit.
Good Verizon service but our site could not see the satellite for TV. Not a big problem for us however.
The crew was very nice to work with and the location is very convenient to town and the areas north and south.
There is even a shuffleboard table in the adult lounge, which you don't find very often.
I don't think I would stay here if I wasn't a member. The commercial rates would cause me to find a better park. - TCDON

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

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

This is boon docking at a casino. The area is well marked and patrolled by security. There is no cost for parking your RV. You must register your RV with the casino, simple process. They do have a quite time from 10 PM to 7 AM. The area is part of their parking lot is paved and fairly level. There are no hookups what so ever. They are probably 30 rigs of every shape and size. Folks have spaced their rigs as to give everyone good space between rigs. Roughly 10 over the air TV channels and cell phones work well. - Trabuco

I stayed for 2 nights. Found the showers "clean". Plenty of hot water.
Site was gravel, level, easy access to utilities. Pull-through.
Being next to highway I was concerned about noise but it was actually pretty quiet. Didn't notice any store available but down the road is gas and stores. The grounds themselves were clean and orderly.
The cable hookup was limited but worked good. Looking forward to coming back again. - mcomeaux

I just don't get the average 8.7 rating. It's a average or better park, but nothing to get excited about. It's a well maintained, older park with asphalt roads and gravel sites. Our spot was dead level. Laurel shrubs planted as privacy hedges separate the sites. Although the sites are adequately sized and spaced, we thought it felt crowded. We stayed during a weekend. Although the place was loaded with dune buggies and quads, it was surprisingly quiet. The restroom and shower were spotless with plenty of hot water. Wifi was slow. Cell coverage (T-mobile) was non-existent. There are no real amenities. The galvanized pipes gave the drinking water a metallic taste. Our dogs did enjoy romping on the dunes immediately behind the park. - whizbang

Great park, paved interior roads, large gravel sites 50A FHU. Great landscaping between sites providing privacy. You are allowed to wash your RV and car on site. Easy access to dunes. Only stock exhaust allowed on your 4 wheeler.
Friendly and helpful owners/staff.
Easy to navigate with our 45' MH. - Larryvt
