Staff very friendly. Sites were clean. Close to the river. Short hike to the dock next door for jet boat ride up river. Staff arranged for our pick up at the dock. Great ride. Found a green apple tree close to site. Made a GOOD pie. Good satellite reception and Verizon works. Will return next year. - Sidewinder

I am writing this to explain why we could not stay at this campground. In my opinion this park is quite over-rated by some of the previous reviewers. Today, after calling ahead to verify availability, we traveled to "check out" campgrounds for our next base camp (~ 50 miles from current campground). We were highly disappointed, not only in the sites themselves at this so called resort, but extremely so by the lack of courtesy by the hostess in particular. She was curt/ unwilling to take the time to check for us which sites would be available for the upcoming dates we were interested in reserving. After spending a few minutes walking thru the campground loop and river sites, which we then learned were actually unavailable for the dates we had discussed, we realized that there was little if any regard for us. We left and found a much nicer campground elsewhere, where the people running the office understand customer service. - RDR

To be accurate about this park, I would really have to give it two reviews. We stayed in one of the six riverside sites and they are beautiful. Parking is difficult, but if you relax and let their guide give instruction, you'll get in just fine. Our 35' was tight, but, we got in. Neighbor on right has a 40 and he made it also. To get out, you'll have to back out and turn around. Again, they have a guide to do it. These sites are level and very clean. A bit tight for the tow, but it works out. Staff is quite pleasant and helpful and I have seen none of the pickiness described below. They are having a bit of a problem with some power fluctuations that kicked a couple of people offline for a very short time. They are addressing that and I am sure it will be handled completely. It is a winding road that leads into the campground, but it was no problem towing. Next time, I would likely detach out on 101 before hand just to make it easier once we got here. I do not consider that a problem. The other review would be for the rest of the sites. All are adequate and differ in size capability. I would rank them as an 8 with no real objections. They are pet friendly. Our neighbors are back for about their eighth extended trip. The river is beautiful and you have good access. Water is low this year due to poor rainfall, but it is still great. Took the Rogue River jet boat tour yesterday and had a good time. Staff will arrange it for you and the boat picks you up at the lodge next door. The Oregon fires have let a little smoke into the area, but we have not found that uncomfortable at all. THANKS to the staff for a fine stay - leaving tomorrow. Gold River is a tiny town, but seems to have decent facilities and pretty good food. - jubilee32

Gold Beach RV Park is very clean, small, and in a great location just off Hwy 101 in downtown Gold Beach, OR. The rates are great. The grounds are immaculate and the bathrooms are very clean. It truly is a hidden jewel! There are restaurants, beaches, a park, and trails within minutes of the park. The park host will guide you in and get you set up. Their website is a must see. We will return soon! - Troy B

Great little park. The owner has done a lot to fix it up and make it very charming. Showers were very clean and well maintained. There is limited space but that is properly advised. The park is a block off the highway with a buffer. Walk to local shopping and places to see. All hookups worked well. We would stay there again any time-24 foot trailer. - Trailering Daval

Big rigs stay away. We are only 35 foot long and we were way too big for this park. It is a converted residential lot, in the middle of a neighborhood. The house remains in the center of the property. Toad's must be dropped prior on the residential street. No parking for Toads except on the street. They have a number of "permanent" residents in older trailers. This would not be a bad park if you are under 20 feet with no slides. Area is grass, watered daily, including your rigs. We stayed 2 nights of the 7 we were scheduled for - no refund received. Just too small for us. Sadly when we made our reservations they did tell us they are big rig friendly, which they are not. Host was very friendly though not concerned about anything except being paid. - Full-Timer RV'er

Nice place and the man at check-in was very nice. Plenty of room to navigate through the park. We were in a 40ft motorhome pulling a pickup. The site had a small concrete pad to park on and the rest was grass. Utilities were right where we needed them and power was 50 amp and good. Wish we had more time to stay. If in the area again, I would definitely come back. - NevadaNick

I don't write these things much but I would hope anyone considering this park wouldn't change their minds based on some recent reviews. I would give this park an 11 out of 10 if I could.
We had a pull through for our RV and toad and we had enough room to fit a few more cars. It was level and shady and so pretty. I cannot speak to any other sites but everything worked well it was nice not seeing so many golf carts driving around all the time. By far the best park we've stayed in since we left back in May. They are not rude; they are German. Please lighten up on writing reviews about how polite someone is based on a phone call. I would hate for anyone to pass this place up for that! - ErinF

The rate reflects the monthly rate. Our view of the ocean was really wonderful. However, not all "ocean view" sites really have an ocean view. The campground itself is quiet and the layout is really nice. Lots of trees, flowers, bushes, meadows and great areas for tenters. Easy access to beach, even though one needs to cross HY 101. Unfortunately, electricity wiring is old, and of low voltage , WiFi is a joke, and cable TV needs to be drastically upgraded.
The owner cooks, and serves "German" dinner from Tuesday to Saturday. He also entertains the guests with his harmonica after dinner. Of course, different people, different tastes ... So everyone has to judge by themselves. However, in our opinion the food was too expensive in comparison to the taste. Also, we thought the owner to be a little too grumpy, and sometimes even rude towards us, meaning his guests. We did not use the showers/bathrooms.
In short the campground as well as the owner needs to be overhauled. - Mac1

Stayed 7 nights, which is discounted to $77. A great deal, considering the campground has flush toilets and coin operated showers. Most sites are RV friendly. The camp sits right on the Rogue River and there are nice trails out of the camp. Its close to Gold Beach, so there is no worry about needs. The town sports river jet boat tours and are a great experience.
I gave this camp a poor rating because of the lack of management. Despite the fact that there are 2 hosts on site, noisey campers go unchecked well into the night and sites go uncleaned between occupants. - polobear

This park was a delightful surprise that we happened upon driving along the "coastal route" from Merlin, OR to Gold Beach. If you are looking for an inexpensive place without hookups this is a great option. It is right on the Rogue River. The spaces vary from small ones in the trees to huge ones along the river. There are flush toilets and (pay) showers (didn't use them, but they seemed fine). I think the back in sites along the river would accommodate even big rigs...there were several big fifth wheels there. There is also a nice day use area and motor vehicle access to the huge gravel bar (awesome rockhounding!). We were here on a Thursday in late June and there was lots of space available. I would imagine that the place probably fills up quickly during prime fishing time though. There is a little store that was closed when we got there but I know they sell firewood and ice at least. Didn't see a dump station, so plan accordingly. We would definitely stop here again. - Pdxjoanne

I like this park. Considering how crowded it is, I am a lot happier than I thought I would be when we first pulled up. Had to detach our trailer tow across the street because they only had room for our 36 ft. RV in back in. The coach backed up to a cabana type structure where we could clean fish and barbeque if we wanted. Dog walking area is across the street where our trailer was parked. The park does support mostly fishing groups and many boats are parked on the property. The wifi was very good and channels (about 20) were not very clear. The staff in the office were very nice and they have a game room with ping pong and billiards plus a couple video games. There is a café open until 2 p.m. and we had a nice breakfast there. For the price, based on staying one week, it was good, especially being so close to town. - ErinF

This is a clean, quiet park. The 8 pull-throughs are near-level asphalt, narrow, in good condition, separated by narrow strips of grass. Some have shade. The back-in sites are grass and gravel, and can get muddy. Many have shade. Roads are asphalt, from adequate to wide, in very good condition. Staff are friendly and helpful. Verizon data service works well. Wi-Fi usually works well, but can drop out. I had no VHF weather radio reception. I measured 101 volts with the microwave on. The water pressure is low. - wjzcbn

Mostly a fishing camp for regulars. Only three sites for travelers. Not friendly. Sites too narrow; with our slides out there is not enough room for even a lawn chair. Trees need to be trimmed. Will not stay here again. - blackbeauty

This was our first time staying here and we had a fairly level, gravel, FHU. back-in site. We were going to take a pull-through but I could not find the sewer on the site we pulled into (I did find it after we had set up in the back-up site). Our site had 40 channel cable with an additional 6 premium channels. The site was also satellite friendly - many sites are, some are not. A previous review described the layout well - 3 rows: 2 back-in rows with a pull-through row in the middle. Maneuvering can be difficult if the park is full and customers do not park their toad out of the way. The sites are fairly narrow and close together. I found the bath/shower facilities to be old, but adequate. Although it was not very appealing, I would have used the laundry if I had needed it. As others have previously noted, you have to check in at the motel 2 blocks to the north. We actually stopped in front of the motel and got a list of available sites before heading to the park. The access to the south end of the town's shops and eateries is a plus. Again, the beach is just a 3 minute walk from your site. Their 802.11 connection was pretty much non-existent. Poor internet and off-site check-in lower the score. I saw some recycling bins near the bathhouse. - Jerry S

Our third time here. This is an older park, two lines of back-ins and one line of pull-thru's in the center. Sites are pretty close but there is at least a little patch of grass and picnic table between them. This place is all about location. It's just a short walk over a low dune and you are right on the beach. You are also right in Gold Beach and there are even restaurants and shops within walking distance. This is also a great base for exploring the southern Oregon coast and the Rogue River. For us, though, it's mainly about the beach access. There is lots of driftwood for beach fires which seem to be very popular around here. The restrooms and showers looked OK but we didn't use them. The "laundry room" consists of two ancient looking washers and one dryer so good luck with that. We are planning on using a commercial laundromat in town. Yeah, the check-in is a little funky with you having to walk out to Route 101 and then past several places to the Gold Beach Inn to check in, so just be aware of that. We would certainly stay here again if/when we are back in the area. - Pdxjoanne

Have camped here before. Very handy to walk to the beach. You just pick a site and walk a couple of blocks to tell them what site you are in and pay for it. Had a AAA discount on the rate. The cable TV was very bad. Snowy, some channels were in black & white instead of color. - TeamElk-Rib

Have stayed here many times for the past 20 yrs. We've checked other places in the area but we prefer Kimball Creek. We had a river view, very quiet and peaceful, deer wander through the park. Owners very hands on and helpful. Jerry's Jet Boats can pick you up right at the campground dock.
Will stay here again. - Jakeysaunt

This park is on the Rogue River. The owners are very nice and try to be accommodating to their guest. There are many people who live in the park. For a big rig it is quite a long and very windy road to get to park. The sites are not paved but have a small concrete patio and picnic table. Jerry's mail boat rides will pick you up at the campgrounds dock. We stayed for 4 nights. Everyone was pleasant. Mostly older couples which we loved to see as no noisy kids. - Campground Reviewers

We arrived on one of the hottest days of this summer. We stayed here five years back and it was great. I think it has new owners. We reserved spots on the water with water and electric, We asked for satellite friendly and did not get them. There are four sites on the water and two of them have trees. They would not let us move to the empty sites that had clear vision for satellite. So we accepted it and hooked up to their cable. Worked good.. While I was setting up my site, (our traveling friends were hooked up with a motorhome and all good). The breaker on the tower kept clicking off. As I said it was very hot. I asked at the front desk and she sent her husband to look at the breaker.. He said it was the heat and the breaker was good even though it keep clicking off. I asked if he would replace the breaker and he said no. I asked if I could move spots and again no. The owner then told me to check out of the park. We had just arrived for the first of four nights.. I checked all the other rvs in the park and the power was working in all of them.. Very rude new owners.. Sorry. - g and p

We spent two nights in Gold Beach so we came here for our second night after trying Ireland's. I don't know what the two recent reviewers expect in an RV park that doesn't claim to be a resort. We had a level, gravel, FHU, pull-through site near the office. The park was more than half full with most customers being extended stay. There are a variety of site configurations: pull-through, back-in , back-to- back, etc. There is no cable TV. This owner decided not to put up with the change in the way their provider was going to provide service - it included tripling the cost. Most sites are satellite friendly and I had a decent 802.11 network connect the night I was here. The bathhouse and showers were exceptionally clean, but the laundry has seen better days. There are only 4 machines in a small room of the bathhouse. The machines were dirty on the outside but worked fine (and they were relatively cheap). You are within walking distance of the Rouge River boat tours and a few places to eat but the main part of town is closer to a mile away. It is a short walk to the beach or the jetty. There is a large covered gazebo with games and enough room for get-togethers. There is also a comfy reading room attached to the office. - Jerry S

Rate cited is based on monthly fee of $550.00, summer rates.
This RV park has three positives. It is closest to the beach and jetty. The manager is very nice and helpful. The restrooms are cleaned daily.
Lots of negatives. Park is gravel, unattractive with very few patches of grass. Gravel and grasses are full of tiny picker plants that always end up in your dog's coat. Check you dog daily. The wee burr can get between their footpads making walking painful. The park is near enough to the animal shelter to hear dogs barking. It is next to the airport runway. Not a lot of planes come and go but they take off right above you.
Most sites do not have sewer. There is no cable TV available. Wi-Fi is not reliable. Laundry: driers tend to overheat. Laundromat in town is much nicer, newer machines.
This park is great if you only use your RV as a place to sleep. If you like to spend a lot of time in nice RV parks, this place is not for you. Not nice. - Woodsie

We enjoyed our stay here. Management is friendly and the park is clean and quiet--no road noise from busy 101. NO there is no cable TV, BUT when you can walk to the beach from your campsite, who needs cable? Basics are all here and worked well for us, but be aware this is not a first-class resort with lots of amenities. But if you want a quiet spot close to the beach and not too far from town, this is a good place to be. - TruBlu

I want to say I really like this park. It's incredibly beautiful with a central park-like area. And it's quiet. The roads are gravel but not dusty. We had a 40 foot big rig and even though the roads are cramped and narrow, we didn't have any problems. And, it's reasonably close to town. But something was off. We didn't have 50 amp power (not sure about other sites), the sewer was way in the back of our site so I had to use an extension hose, and there is no laundry. But the worst part is that the sites are very close together. Many sites are V-shaped; one entrance for two campsites. We were in a W-shaped site, so one entrance for three campsites. There was no place to park our tow, so we just parked it next to the neighbor's car in the next site over. - bendoregonrv

This is a quiet campground in a beautiful, garden-like setting. The staff is super friendly and helpful. If this campground has any drawbacks, it is the outdated bathrooms and showers. They are just too old and too small to handle the number of people camping here. - cactuslady

Very nice little park with about 8 full hookups and a bunch of water only and tent sites. Friendly, accommodating, on site owners. Lush and tranquil, close to town and river, but out of the wind and fog. Acceptable wi-fi and cable TV. Good showers, no laundry but a good laundromat in town. Definitely not a parking lot experience. - Tesoro

Our site has its own HOT TUB on a raised deck. We stay here every year, this year it was the only reservation we made for winter travel down the coast. We anted to be sure to have a site with then individual hot tub and deck. Its a Passport discount park but you don't get to use that with the hot tub sites, however you do get 3 nights for the price of two. Excellent walk to beach. A quiet park, offers cabins too, laundry and all not new but fully functional. A few good restaurants in town, Bistro, pizza, Italian in old school building. This is a beach camp, so it can be damp in winter, but they are on top of maintenance pretty well. - solarsteve4x4

This is a very beautiful park. There was plenty of room for our 40ft. Fifth wheeler. The laundry is inexpensive (1.00 for wash and dry) but the laundry building itself could use some updating but that did not matter. The park is on a river that flows into the ocean. It is a short walk to the beach so that is cool. We could hear the waves crashing which I love.
The space between sites is what you normally find in a park- no better and no worse.
There are some groceries in the office which is manned by very nice staff. There is also a fitness room which is nice.
Overall we were very pleased with Turtle Rock RV Resort. - lindy j

After a week of camping in our tiny truck camper, we splurged and stayed in one of the park-model cabins offered by Turtle Rock, #40 to be specific. The views are beautiful, of Hunter Creek and the ocean; and the spotlessly-clean cabin had every creature comfort you could imagine, including a hot tub on the deck. It was a short walk under US-101 to the private oceanfront beach, where we could let our dogs romp off leash. We used the nice laundry facilities - the rest of the RV park appeared clean and well-maintained (although the summer's drought took its toll on the lawn). I would definitely stay here again! - Deb344
