Campsites here are pretty good sized except in the area where most of the sites with sewers are. Those sites are very close to each other. The other sites, most of which have only electricity and water, are large and have bushes/trees around the sites to allow for some privacy. Not all sites here will allow you to get satellite TV. Some areas are just too heavily forested for that. We changed sites after the first night so that our Dish would work. We had no problem with our Verizon MiFi or AT&T cell phones in either site we were in. Both worked well. There were really no activities here like other Thousand Trails parks have. There was a chili cook-off the day we arrived, but only 2 campers participated, so it wasn't much. Club houses are in fairly good shape, but not heavily used, probably because of the lack of activities. Pool and hot tub were both open while we were here, unlike other TT parks we've been in recently. Laundry was larger than most. Washers were good, but the dryers didn't heat well, so drying took a long time. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our 2 days at South Jetty. It was like a little wooded fairyland with all the ferns and small plants. We didn't have a site with septic, but we were out most of the time exploring. The Ranger was helpful and kind at check-in. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.

They say they have full hookups, but what they don't tell you is that they are first come, first served, even if you made reservations long in advance. When we arrived, we were told no sites with sewers were available. I went to check out the showers, since we wouldn't be able to use ours, and the shower was disgusting! We were supposed to stay 3 nights, but bailed out the next morning. Our site was literally carved out of the hillside. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park and is well-reviewed. It's truly beautiful here. We were able to get a water/electric site that backed into the woods and enjoyed the coziness and view. The reason I wanted to write a review is because of the lack of information about cell service at the campground, which led to our booking a long stay and leaving early. My husband is a software developer who works a 9-5. He HAS to have a reliable Verizon signal. It is priority #1 for us. I called the ranger station before booking and was assured that the Verizon signal is very strong at this campground. Upon arrival, I asked again and was told that "Verizon is awesome throughout the whole park." Though I only had 2 bars, it is sometimes the case that it's still a good signal, especially with our booster. This time, it wasn't true. Even next to the booster, which usually gives us an extra 1-2 bars, the cell data was too slow to work. After limping along for a few days, with my husband having to connect and re-connect with his boss several times and his screen-share lagging, we knew we had to leave. I noticed that the Verizon signal wasn't much stronger in a good deal of Florence, so I don't think it's just this campground. One other thing to mention: during our stay, another family in the full time Families group posted that she was very unhappy with the dark, gloominess of the park, caused by the forest, which closes in all around most sites. She said she felt like it was always night time, though the weather was actually nice once you got out of the park. I totally understood what she meant. The only difference for us is that, being from the Oregon coast and having been gone for a year, we actually found it cozy and relaxing. Just something to keep in mind. Chances are, it'll be dark in your RV because of so much tree cover. There is so much to do here, so much to see. If you don't care about cell data speeds or getting a FHU site, this might be a great park for you. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Oh, you have to go down and have clam chowder at Mo's and check out the shops. My kids also liked Darlingtonia Park, with their carnivorous plants! It's a quick, free stop, which we did on our way back from the beach. Sea Lion Caves is $$$ but if you're not from the area, you might think it worth it. Also check out the lighthouse.

Many sites closed due to lack of electric service. Not many sites where satellite on roof will work. Can't find a sewer site and they charges $50 for pump out! We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here as Thousand Trails members. This wasn't the nicest Thousand Trails we've been at. As always, arrive early to snag a good spot. It's very tight with small sites, some of which are closed due to electrical problems. Only about a third of the sites have sewer but we we're lucky enough to snag one of them. It's a beautiful place and the location, about a mile from the ocean and sand dunes, can't be beat. But the park was a bit run down, even by Thousand Trails standards. The closed sites has notices stating they would be fixed by May 18 but it was mid June. There is some evidence of upgrades like machinery, water pipes and new electrical pedestals. The club houses and pool were nice enough. The sites are very small, especially the sewer sites in Loop A. On the upside the staff was very helpful when we arrived, letting us know what sewer site were open and showing us where the were. But if you're got a Thousand Trails membership, this place is a gem. So many lovely places to visit within a half hour you can forgive the shortcoming of the park. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Novelli's and the Krab Kettle have amazing chowder and fresh seafood. Finally, wander up and explore Cape Perpetua. A short drive and you're in Florence where there's shopping, dining, etc. This area of the coast is spectacular as well.

We loved our 4 nights at this TT park. Very close to Florence, which we liked very much, and close enough to the beach for nice sunset. This TT park feels like a state park. We ended up choosing a water/electric 30amp site for more space in a quiet loop. We were close enough to the activity centre to reach the wifi hotspot but still felt like camping out in nature.

As with many TT parks, there are holes in road and some electrical pedestals are iffy. We now have a habit of walking around with an electrical device to check for reverse polarity before backing into a site!

A few of the neighboring sites were closed either due to maintenance needed or leaking water bibs. Also, the dump station was closed and a temporary one was set up in a loop (we did not use because it was in a curve and not convenient for us). We ended up following the park's recommendation to drive south 2 miles to the state park and dump for free. Laundry was relatively cheap and worked well. Free wifi worked very well. We got about 15 stations over the air with good reception. Bath houses were cleaned and well lit. All the workers we encountered were polite and helpful. Overall, a great TT experience!

South Jetty RV Park offers something so many parks do not and that is the feeling of nature. A short distance from the city of Florence and you find yourself in a forest. What is truly nice is that the feel of nature has not been demolished with slabs of concrete at the sites. I loved the gravel and privacy of each site. This is a Thousand Trails park but the general public can use the park. I am a Passport America member and was welcomed really nicely. Staff at the office were not only friendly but provided a great deal of information and answered so many first time visit questions. They even accommodated my special request that I truly appreciated. One must stop in at the office, pay fees, register and then go pick out your own site. You are given a nice map detailing which sites are water/sewer and also locates those that are full service. The majority of the sites are larger than most RV parks, have far more privacy and give you the nature feel. Bathrooms are clean, warm and located in nice locations. Garbage dumpsters were located in areas that were convenient. I did not see any recycling containers and that was a bit of a disappointment. A children's play area and a pool/hot tub open during summer months are located near the lodge. There are two lodges and one is adult only. The one thing that will certainly have me returning for future visits is that the park is located 2.1 miles from the ocean beach. This is one of the longest stretches of beach front in Oregon. The 2.1 mile walk from the park is not an easy one. There is very little shoulder on the road. Drivers seemed to be moving slow and courteous when i walked to the beach. If you want a great park to escape the cement, city lights and chaos of city life this is the park for you. My visit was in November and there was several locations under going repairs and work. That did not impact my visit in a negative way. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive the entire camp ground before picking out your site. You pay then pick a site. I am sure they would let you take a tour before paying. The newer C sites by the yurts and cabins on the hill have the most opportunity for sunshine should the Oregon Coast have it during your stay.

There are limited full hookup (30A, no 50A FHU) at this campground, we got one of the last available ones and it was barely wide enough for us to walk on each side of the motorhome once we got parked. On the positive side, there were trees/bushes/ground right beside us so it was very private from the sites next to us! We were camping after "prime" season so the dump station was out of service as they were doing maintenance/repairs. There was a temporary dump station allocated that was deep in the campground - we didn't want to have to drive through to it so were happy to get a site that had sewer, even if it was narrow. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

The whole park is in the forest and many sites are totally shaded and felt damp and moldy. Many FHU sites were blocked off due to electrical issues, and they said they are working on fixing them, and there weren't many FHU sites to begin with. Our site had good electric and good water quality, but it was a W/E and small. No cable or WiFi but good antenna TV reception. Two clubhouses and an outdoor pool. Fair size fenced-in dog park.

Just down the street is the South Jetty OHV staging area of the South Jetty National Recreation Area (Senior Pass OK). Huge sand dunes to walk on and many people take their ATVs to ride the dunes. (I walked down there from the TT to let the dogs run loose) We recommend taking a dune buggy ride with Sandland Dune Buggy Rides - it was the best thing around. We also drove up Hwy 101 to view Thor's Well and the Oregon coast.

This is a wooded park, a large park, and an old park all of these factors lend themselves to problems we had no problems but observed many sites blocked off for electrical or plumbing problems. Because of the trees, satellite signal is almost impossible but we got all networks on antenna not ideal but workable. The access to the dunes and the beautiful old town of Florence make it a great stop. We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

This "RV" park is the worst were have ever stayed at. The staff was not very helpful. It was raining much of the time we were there so the dirt roads and dirt sites were very muddy. I am glad it was raining so we didn't have to sit in clouds of dust from the dirt roads. We were supposed to have 30 amp service we prefer for our 50 amp RV but half of the time we stayed there we had NO power.

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.
