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.
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.

Tips for other Campers:
This is a good place to stay so you can rent a quad or go on a guided tour of the sand dunes. There are also Myrtle Wood businesses you can visit.

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.

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.

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.
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.
CAUTION: VERY LOW VOLTAGE - can damage your electrical equipment when you plug in. Voltage dropped down to 97 - had to unplug from pedestal and run inverter from batteries to watch TV. 50amp sites and sewer sites are extremely limited - none were available. Otherwise, nicely wooded park, generally private sites, big pool, hot tub, bathrooms/showers seemed clean, dirt roads. Close to town and Fred Meyers & Safeway for shopping. Sand dunes just down the street. Verizon is weak, but workable. Won't return until electricity is fixed. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.
My rating is based on the very friendly staff we met. The location is secluded, yet close to town for supplies. The trees are thick, which makes satellite access more difficult, but the staff recommended some sites where we were able to get coverage. Not all sites are equipped with sewer connection, but this is a more rustic campground which accepts RV's. It's not paved roads, which was fine with us. The internal scenery of the park is great, with separation between you and the next camp site. They were in the process of removing a number of trees in the lower section to open up the grounds to the sun, while maintaining the desired shade for summer months. We plan to return many times. We enjoyed our stay and expect to do so again. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Low voltage power. Extra cost for 50 amp and/or cable TV. Fair Verizon phone and data. Good over the air TV. No longer has food service. Lots of trees, so satellite would be difficult. Unfriendly staff. I would not recommend this park except for the cost (with Thousand Trails Membership). We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Good power and water pressure while nestled in the coastal forest just a few miles from the ocean. Friendly staff and maybe a mile to town. Would gladly stay here again. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Gravel interior roads and campsites. Some full hookups, others W/E. A few with cable TV (extra charge) and some 50 amp (extra charge). The restroom building closest to our site was closed so quite a walk to next one. Some sites are sloped, bring blocks or boards. No direct beach access. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.
If you are a big rig with roof satellite just keep on driving. Most sites are just holes cut into the trees and brush you back into. Talk about privacy its like being in a cave. Most don't have sewer. There were some open sites but not much chance of getting one. Pool looked nice. Low voltage. Several like us left early. I am a TT member so know what to expect, but not this. Never again here. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.
We were greeted by friendly staff person and the reservation was as requested. This park is off highway 101 enough that road noise is not an issue. The park is in deep woods with tall trees so satellite reception depends on site orientation. Sites are wide enough and offer plenty of privacy. There are fire rings at each site. Laundry room was very clean. Few sites have cable, some have been upgraded to 50 amp. Most have 30 amp and voltage was generally low. Wi-Fi at the adult lodge was very good. It had cable TV, pool tables, puzzle tables, etc. In the park the roads were gravel and pot holes had been filled at some point. Nothing bad. The park is older but clean and maintained. We enjoyed walking in the park as folks were pretty friendly. We would stay there again. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.
Most sites have only 30 amp service and some sites has utilities on the wrong side. Very few sites cable TV and very few sites with satellite signal and very few sites with sewer. Couldn't find a Wi-Fi signal and cell phone signal weak. Very overgrown with trees and bushes many sites in shade all day. Park very spread out and have to drive to restrooms and the pool. Some outlaying restrooms were closed and the one in the main lodge were dirty. Roads in bad shape with potholes. Pool ok, but not heated and spa not operating. Feels like you camping in the forest campground, not a RV resort. Staff friendly. Several TT members we met there also left early for the same reasons. Cost $10 with RPI discount. Would not stay there again. Had reservations for 7 days, left after 3 days. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.
