South Jetty - this place is a destination stop for those wanting to ride dune buggies on the beach. Just be prepared for the noise. If you know about it, it's not that bad. Every site is shaded with towering pines. Sewer sites are taken quickly on weekend. Get here early for prime spots. Our site was quiet and beautiful. Kids loved the heated pool. Not walkable to beach, but the beach is stunning and not crowded. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Gravel roads, a bit meandering and a little tight but not bad. Shady although we were fortunate enough to pick a site where we could get satellite. Pool, clubhouse. Some sites could feel a bit cramped as they are narrow and set in between trees. Nice park though.

One leg of our 50A was missing, used the 30A instead. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Visited "Seal Cave." Nice, unique. Admission was $13/seniors. Just north of that, is Heceta Head Lighthouse. The cove and lighthouse were well worth the stop.

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? We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Old town is fun for a few hours. The state park was really nice for kayaking, if the wind is down. The sand boards on the highway were way more affordable than at the state park, but the dune to use is at the state park. This only appeals to teens who love to ski.... there is no chair lift! Crabbing and clamming is better at Winchester Bay.

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. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

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.

We had reservations for a 2 week stay. We checked in and basic Thousand Trails nonsense finding a site. No FHU available, No 50A large enough for a 45' RV. IF they don't have sufficient sites of the size to accommodate a reservation based on ones profile the reservation should not have been able to be made. Gravel interior roads and sites.

Nice Thousand Trails. Friendly personnel. Sites are narrow and not all level. Some turns are very tight. There is 50 amp available for a $5.00 fee but interestingly most of these sites are too small to accommodate the big rigs that require 50 amps and have no sewer! There are 30 amp with water and sewer. Great Internet and cell service. very close to beach. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Typical TT park. 50 amp sites have no sewers. Only sewers are in 'A' section which only has 30 amp sites and is overgrown with weeds and tree stumps. Appears TT had a logging company come in and remove the trees leaving the entire area a mess. Typical of any logging operation along the Oregon Coast. One restroom in section A was condemned so removed and not replaced. The other one was closed while we were there. The 50 amp sites were more spacious but no sewers. Not too many satellite sites. Two spas but one was closed during our stay and they are both small, 6 person spas. There are hiking trails and an enclosed dog park way back in the rear of the park. Disappointing park in a beautiful area. Near the Oregon sand dunes. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Great park but the roads are narrow as are the sites. Very few sites with sewer and we paid $5 per night for 50 amp service. We have rhododendrons, trillium, and cedar trees surrounding us. Our site will not let us pick up Dish but Verizon works well. Our antennae also picks up stations. There is a honey wagon for pumping out your tanks or you can use the dump station on your way out.

Thousand Trails that is now part of ELS. Many sites have electrical issues and many seasonal sites take up most of the park. A lot of unlevel site that ELS just does not seem to want to invest some fill and grooming to correct. If you can avoid, I would unless you are willing to put up with a "issues" and feel it comes with a discounted price. It is not worth their off the street rate. I gave them a 6 only because the people are trying with their limited resources. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Thousand Trails Passport. This is a beautiful, rustic, forested park on many levels and distributed around many curves. Unfortunately we had stabilizer problems upon arrival and then it started raining. Actually it was more like monsoon. It caused problems with the sewers. The rain continued and we ended up leaving early before really getting to experience this nice rustic park. We would be willing to try it again some time in the future.

Very long wait to register. No 50 amp or sewer at our site. Not happy! Made reservations under RPI; very limited space. Was told different on phone when made reservations 2 months in advance. Stayed in a very dark and dismal spot. Great neighbours! We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here as TT members and upgrade to 50 amps, hence the $5 fee. Our site was in the back, the roads were initially dusty going back in there then after the rain for 5 day routine they became muddy. No sewer on the premium sites, wow! They need to do so work on trimming trees. The guy who checked us in would have won the contest for most unfriendly gate personnel. The rest of the staff were very nice. TV via satellite is difficult, as is AT&T. It is a nice place to use as a jumping off place to see the central and south coast of Oregon. We stayed here in a 40 ft rig.

Our stay at this campground was mostly positive. There are plenty of campsites for bigger rigs, mostly water/electric. The campground has a nice pool plus a couple of hot tubs and a pickleball and basketball court. One area is all 50 amp electric, but there’s a $5 surcharge for using those sites. Getting full hookups is a bit of a challenge. One primary full hookup loop has recently been logged out, leaving the area looking stripped with lots of stumps. As I understand it the plan is to let the undergrowth fill in, cover the stumps, and create separation between the sites. For now, I think it looks a bit like a war zone, but I have the idea that things will look a lot better in a year or two. The lack of full hookups is alleviated a bit by the placement of many gray water disposal sites scattered throughout the campground. Also, there’s a honey wagon service available for a price. A big draw here is the proximity of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Access is a couple of minutes from the campground. People bring their dune buggies and spend their time out on the dunes and on the beach on the other side of the dunes. Otherwise, beach access is surprisingly difficult - involving a drive of at least 5 miles plus a walk up and over the dunes. A drive north on 101 of 15 miles or so takes one along some of the most dramatic shoreline to be found anywhere. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.
