A lovely destination campground. We had a premium site with a private spa, deck and BBQ. The spa was hot and spotless, the large BBQ came with a full tank of propane. Everything was green and lovely next to a running river. The park is rustic, not a lot of concrete, mostly gravel and grass. Older buildings, very ocean community rustic, but lovely. Very friendly, lots of staff and caretakers. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
The office can schedule with Jerry's Jet Boat, and they can arrange fishing outfitters and guides. A few casual restaurants within walking distance.
Stay here when we visit the Oregon Coast. Rate cited is the Passport America price, pre-season weekly rate. All utilities worked great, some road dust. Walk to beach, great dog beach. Grass sites. Nice neighbor bar/cafe and Arch Rock brewery outside park entranced. Cedar Bend Golf Course approximately 12 miles north of Gold Beach. Some site have HOT TUBS. Will stay again. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

If I could rate this park with an 11, I would. Great staff and lots of them in the office and around the park working keeping it looking nice. Very helpful people. We planned on 3 nights and stayed for 5. You are only steps to a spectacular beach for combing, walking and enjoying! The sites are roomy and level. Washrooms spic and span. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
It's a 1.5 mile easy walk to Gold Beach core. The tavern at the park entrance is great. Good food and friendly staff.

Passport America rate of $19 for each night. We stayed here for 4 days and had great weather. We like homey places vs. cement, sterile parks so this was perfect for us. There are permanents but they were nice and clean enough. Sites are dirt/grass but level enough, we got satellite TV without any problem. WiFi is Great! A workkamper in the office, was super nice. We plan on coming back next year for Salmon fishing. Might just stay for a month. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is just an average park. Staff were the best part about it. Too many Permanent's along the river in Park Model's for our liking. Bathrooms were just ok. They were reasonably clean but were definitely showing their age. The showers were a bit of challenge to keep a constant water temperature flowing from. The water or river "flowing" past the campground can be pretty stagnant and brackish (in the fall anyway). Not somewhere wanted to walk in bare feet. Sites and roadways were mostly dirt. As someone else mentioned $25 a night would probably be a reasonable rate for this park. Would likely pick a different park if we came through that area again. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Motorhome.
This park is much too pricey, particularly for summer rates in May. First, it is a mile to the beach. Water view means a tidal creek and there is a lot of overgrowth between you and the water. Definitely not a swimming area. The beach is nice, but to get there you must take a path not well suited for those that may be uncomfortable with some rocks and stone. Definitely not handicap accessible. Grass/grave sites. Pull through are fine for big rig, but back ins for "water" view are tight and no space for parking toad. Staff was friendly. Lots of grassy areas to walk the pets. Pets loved the beach off-leash. Biggest issue is park doesn't merit the price. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The staff at this resort was extremely helpful and friendly in assisting us with a TV reception problem that was not caused by them. Really enjoyed the site by the river which often had egrets and other waterfowl to watch. Sites by the river are sunny. Proximity to the beach was great and the walk to it was easy. Nice to hear the crash of the ocean waves at high tide. Laundry facilities are good but on the second floor which makes it a bit difficult if stairs are a problem. The park is very dog-friendly with many locations to drop off doggie poop. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate I am showing is off season winter rate for a back in site. Not a bad place to spend a few days. Sites are on gravel, adequate spacing between sites. I recommend getting a site on the exterior, not the interior. If you get an interior site, you may be backed against the RV on the other side of the interior circle. Also, try not to get site 93. Site 93 is perpendicular to Site 94. Potential for your slideouts or back end to whack the RV in Site 94 (or for them to whack you) if you aren't careful. Because someone was in Site 94, I couldn't get as far back in the site as I wanted, and I had to use 30 feet of sewer hose and an extra long cable line. Cable TV was ok. You get an adequate supply of the most watched channels. Reception was definitely analog. Wi-Fi was a bit slow at times. Restrooms are unisex, but each one is private room with toilet and bathtub/shower. The laundry room is upstairs on top of the bathhouse. This could be an issue for those that are physically challenged. The stairs are the only access to the laundry room. $2 to wash, $1 to dry, reasonable. Price-wise, good deal in winter time. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a good park with a great location. Once I got over the guy using hand signals to tell me to slow down in my car when I was idling through, all was good. Friendly staff with that one exception, but isn't there always one? Wi-Fi comes and goes. Good laundry facilities. You must go to the bar and the local brewery across the street for entertainment. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Motorhome.

If this park was $35, I would have given it an 8. We thought it was overpriced. We only needed a place to sleep for one night, and did not look at the washrooms or laundry, or try to log on to the Wi-Fi, so we cannot comment about the amenities. Water, sewer, electric, and cable TV were fine. The sites are quite some distance from the beach, and are weedy grass and gravel, with a few trees. Staff was very nice. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Great location, close walk to beach. Gravel sites, Wi-Fi, Cable TV fuzzy. Some noise from 101, but not bad. Dog friendly, but charge $$ for more than one dog. Very dusty, need to water roads. Use north side of park to get Satellite. Gold Beach means WIND so plan accordingly. Probably won't return because of Extra Dog Charges. Can't remember this policy at any park in the last 3 years. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

For what you pay for, this park is not a "resort". $50 + a night, trash overflowed. I did not use the bathrooms. We had to go to an empty site to get a picnic table that was in horrible condition. We had to use our RV leveling pads to level the table to cook on it. This "resort" needs a lot of TLC time and money to bring it up to date. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is overrated on the web site. Photos show nice grass areas when it's just a few weeds & stickers (bad for the dog) and dirt/gravel roads. The site we chose on-line stated it was level--maybe if you're in a 16' travel or tent trailer. Step out of the rig and into a ditch. Way overpriced for what it is, even given it's the Oregon coast. Would not recommend this park to anyone! We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
This could be a winner if they only mowed and watered whatever green there is between spaces. The trees were falling over and weeds were knee high. They have spent a lot of money on making some spa sites, which looked nice but the rest of the park looked sad and neglected. Office staff was nice, and laundry was OK for $2.00 a pop. Can walk to beach easily. We camped at Turtle Rock RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Nice little RV park just south of town. We had a waterfront site on the estuary and we could even see the ocean from our site. Sites are gravel and fairly level. Great spot to enjoy the coast. We would highly recommend going on a jet boat tour up the Rogue River where we saw all kinds of wildlife including bears, river otters and bald eagles. We would stay there again.
