Very nice state park in a great area of Oregon. Good sites with separation between. Convenient hook ups, clean restrooms and showers. Sites have picnic tables and firepits with grates. Would recommend. We stayed here in Travel Trailer. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Upon arrival in mid week there were only a few sites left at 1 o'clock for more than one night. We were able to get a pull thru in M loop with full hookups. Good big rig friendly, paved, dirt, but was very frustrated with weak to non existent water pressure, 30 amp, slow Verizon Data, Verizon is not the park's problem but be aware. Most sites are tree covered so there is no satellite and very few over the air channels. After two nights, we were able to stay in N loop with excellent water pressure and 50amp service in a back-in, with only electric and water. And it is a busy park with over 500 sites and receptionists that are efficient but not helpful or over friendly. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

For a state park this is a very nice campground. We had full hookups and had no problems with them. We did get OTA channels with only slight breakups while watching. As others have said some of the sites are difficult to get into because of parked cars and trees that are not well placed. We had one of those sites and it took some time to get backed in on the very narrow pad. We did have one night of noisy neighbors but we lived through it.
The campground is great for trails, both bike and walking, and the beach was only a 3/4 mile walk away.
We would stay again. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Stevens is a favorite. Normally we come here in the shoulder season, or off season to avoid the crowds. It was still nice, noisy, but nice. Only 4 loops have sewer. 3 lane dump station at the entrance/exit. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the trolley in Astoria: get on/off at the Wet Dog Saloon.

Next day visit the Maritime museum and get some tuna fish/chips at the Bow Picker.

Next day, take a nap, then walk on the beach, or drive on it if you have 4wd.

Next Day, Bouy 9 for dinner.

Next morning, Arnies Café for a huge breakfast.

Next, next, next, lots to do. Pretty hard to get bored here.

This is a State Park, and while there is a great deal to see and do here, especially great access to the Pacific Ocean, it can also be crowded. Many people come here to camp; there are separate loops for RV camping. Sites and loops can be a little tight but we had full hookup (no cable and due to trees-no satellite or antenna). The beach here is the main attraction. There is also an $8 vehicle fee, which is added on to your site fee. There are Camp Hosts for every loop, and they are very helpful...even bringing wood bundles by your site to purchase. If a quiet place with ocean views is your thing...this is not the park for you. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

As the previous reviewers said, the camp is clean and woodsy. Our problems stem from the fact that this campground is not big rig friendly. The main roads are too narrow and the sites are not situated to allow easy access to 52 foot sites (our coach is 42'). Also, the adjacent sites had dogs that ran loose, barked incessantly, and were quieted occasionally by their owners yelling louder than the dogs were barking. If you go in early June the mosquitoes are terrible. We have tried this park twice now and we won't be back. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

A huge park with around 600 sites. I had one of the pull-throughs in Loop M. Lots of places for walking the dog. The beach was approximately a one-mile walk, and Coffenbury Lake is also nearby and nice place to walk. Didn't spend as much time outside as I would have liked because the mosquitoes were so thick. Must have been hatch time, so be prepared if you go in May. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Campsites are spacious and in-the-woods. Very private. Our 35 foot fifth-wheel fit fine. However, many sites will not easily accommodate larger rigs. Trees are plentiful. So, satellite reception will be iffy. We lucked out and had good reception. Had reservations, but not really needed this time of year, except on weekends and holidays. Loved the miles of walking/biking trails to a lake, ocean beach or historical sites. Great place for kids or just having a relaxing, down time camping. We definitely would camp here again. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Camped for three nights. Had reservations. However, upon arrival our reserved sight was occupied. Host apologized for the mistake. Informed us to select another sight since there were many available at this time of year. Could have been a problem during a busier time. Majority of camping spots are surrounded by trees. Larger rigs could have problems maneuvering into some of the sights. Getting a satellite read is impossible in many locations. However, we had an opening through the trees which allowed us for a satellite hookup. Great park with numerous walking and biking trails, lake and ocean access. Quiet. Will definitely return, if in the area again. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely the most scenic State Park we've seen yet. Large sites with lots of trees. Great walking paths, easy 1 mile walk to the beach and shipwreck. Fort Stevens museum was outstanding, the walking tour was very informative too. Everywhere you go, there is more to see, from the Pacific Ocean to the Columbia River. All of the staff, volunteer and paid, were wonderful and very helpful. Satellite and TV reception were very site and weather dependant. Stay a week to see it all. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here many times, during many seasons. (the quoted nightly rate may be slightly off - memory fails) My favorite park by a long-shot. Well-kept. Clean. Even when the park is full to capacity. Rangers take care of even the smallest complaint immediately - and things can go wrong anywhere, be it noisy parties or cold showers. The point is, here at Ft. Stevens things get taken care of. Now. Sites are usually quite spacious, there's lots to explore from beach to historic area to museum. I'm sure it's a great week-end getaway for many, but I personally like to stay for the two weeks allowed! Thanks Fort Stevens! oh, and do try to get a glimpse of the elk! We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

This is our 2nd stay and we love it even more than the 1st time. Full hookups in the middle of the forest is awesome and the park has so much to offer everyone. Trails everywhere that are accessible to all. We have a big rig and we felt very comfortable getting in and out of the park. An Oregon park jewel!

Stayed 4 nites in early June. Weather drier & warmer than might usu be expected. Nice shaded P/W site. Big dump station on the way out works fine. Close rest/shower room with plenty hot water if you don't mind pushing the button every 2 mins. Lots to do in the area incl Astoria, Seaside, Canon Beach. Even made a day trip to the cheese factory at Tillamook. 3rd time camping here & definitely will return. Do think its strange that have only 1 trash/recycling site for such a big park, but it works OK. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have any VA disability, investigate the Oregon State Parks pass. 5 consecutive days (max 10 per month) free camping. Doesn't include Yurts or cabins & you do have to pay the $8 reservation fee (if you reserve in advance). Doesn't matter where you live, if you have proof of VA disability you're eligible but you have to have the pass when you arrive. See Ore State Parks homepage for info.

This is the most beautiful park we stayed in during our tour of Oregon! Each camping loop is tucked amongst massive pine trees, the sites feel large and secluded. The beach goes for miles; or you can follow the loop road around until you're at the Columbia River. I wish we had stayed longer than a night, there was so much to see and do! We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Truck Camper.

We stayed in Loop O which has more non-shaded sites than any of the other loops. Very large campground with paved roads and sites, lots of full hook-ups and with multiple sizes to fit large RV's. Many walking and biking trails to different attractions within the park including being very close to the ocean with miles of beach that can be walked or driven along. The grounds and washrooms are kept very clean. Beautiful location and setting which we would return to. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.
