Price includes a one time online reservation fee of $8. As with every other Oregon state park we stayed in, this one was wonderful. The campground is quiet, very clean, well maintained, and extremely large with over 400 campsites. Even though there are a lot of campsites, the park did not seem overcrowded or closed in. There is a large network of biking and hiking trails that also double as walking areas for your pet. The bathrooms and showers are immaculate and well maintained. It took a minute or two to get the shower temperature just right, but once regulated there was no problem. Our site was very well shaded, but some others are a little more open. Sites are blacktopped and fairly level. Our site had 50 amp service with a sewer hookup. There is no cable or Wifi, but we were able to get about six channels with our antenna and we had a strong signal with Verizon. It was very easy to navigate through the park in out 36' motorhome with easy areas to hookup and unhook our tow. We stayed here three nights and would stay here or in any other Oregon state park again. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Ft Stevens and the gun emplacements from WWII are very interesting and worth the time to take a look.

This a VERY large campground and sights are kind of close to each other, but still nice. Great sights to see in area either by foot or car, so make sure and plan some time to enjoy all the area has to offer. Very clean bathrooms and free showers. I found it very odd that for large campground there is NO trash cans around the park, but yet, dog poop bags, so if you pick it up you have to carry long way to throw away...(I did). FYI the maps we were given of the park and area did not seem to be correct on mileage or paths. I would for sure stay here again. No ATT cell at campground but pick up in other spots in park. $30.00 a night is WAY less than the KOA right before the park, so please don't give KOA your money unless you want all the bells and whistles of a KOA. I would of given this a 10 but sights are close and the no trash can thing... We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure and take the time to see all the sights in area, rather by foot, car or bike.

We stayed at the Fort Stevens State Park for 4 days in our 40' RV. Check in was easy at the office due to our having reservations online and our name was on the camp post at our spot. Getting to our site was easy and pulling in was not a problem in space 65 C loop. Our hookups were located in the right location and they were in working order. Our Verizon hotspot worked surprisingly great for not having a town close by. Our satellite worked fine with all the trees around after I pulled in another way to get a clear line of sight signal through the thick forest. It was one of the reasons we chose this spot was for there being a clear sky view. There are awesome hiking trails through the park to the Fort or the beach where you can see the shipwreck of the Peter Iredale. This park has a lot of history of military forts and bunkers. This park is quiet on weekdays but the weekends are a nightmare, barking dogs, screaming kids, kids on bikes, people walking through your camp, no regard for privacy. The bathrooms are totally outdated, spiders everywhere. The park volunteers are friendly and bring firewood to your camp. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out the fort's old bunkers. It is the only fort on American soil that had been attacked since the revolutionary war. You can also hike to the shipwreck. It may be gone in our future due to erosion.

The park is huge with hundreds of sites. Plan half an hour for checking in and finding your spot. It is an excellent location with the beach nearby, a nice lake nearby with boat ramp. There are playgrounds for the kids. Make sure to get a map when checking in to navigate your way through the park. Some spots are wooded, some open, some have grass, some dont. Ask when making your reservation if you prefer one over the other. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Stevens State Park has been our favorite campsite through our travels. The park is well-maintained, and there are plenty of hosts on every loop to help out. The park is in the woods, so every spot is in the shade. There is plenty of room around each site, so you never feel crowded, even though there is a lot of capacity. Plenty of walking trails and places to explore. A path leads right to the Oregon Coast and beautiful beaches on the Pacific. A place not to miss! We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Astoria, and buy fresh fish & chips at The Bowpicker. They use fresh tuna. And visiting the various Forts around the area is a fascinating history lesson.

We arrived the day before the big seafood festival. Got the last site. Lucky... We skipped the festival and spent time on the beach. If you have a 4wd unit, you can drive on the beach for about 15 miles. The dogs love it. This park is normally clean, but in two different sites, we had to get trash out of the fire ring and clean up the previous dog poop. At least I know it was clean when we left. Camp staff/host should have been checking the sites.

We were limited on the sites we can access because of overall length. But adequate sites above 50'. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Millions of places to eat and drink. Love to visit the Astoria area.

Excellent park, maybe too big as some sites are great, others poor. If you like hiking, biking, or history then this is the place. Great camp hosts in all loops. Really no cell coverage. Price reflects out of state, and reservation fee. Would stay here again, and again. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Love this place! Big trees and nice sites that are fairly easy to get into. What is nice is that almost half the sites are full hookups, which is really nice if you have a family and don't want to use the public showers. I reserved early and was able to get a water-electric only site where I could use my satellite, but be aware that open sites are not common here. There is a very nice beach about 3/4 of a mile away and lots of good biking trails that make it easy to get there. Also a WWII fort with tours and a museum. I also liked that it was near the Maritime Museum in Astoria, so lots of things for kids to see and do. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park with lots to see and do. We lucked out and got a site with lots of grass and sunlight. Sites around the loops typically are more shady so not so much grass or ground cover. There is no WiFi or Cable and cell reception (Verizon) was so so. However, we really like this place as it is a WONDERFUL bike riding area with lots of trails. The kids were able to ride their bikes around the loops without too much concern for vehicles. I have never seen so many bike riders in a campground. The rangers in the office were very helpful and accommodating. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is HUGE!!!!! Beautiful park, and we would stay here again! Stayed here in a 36 ft 4th wheel. Had a pull-thru site! Lots of mosquito's, is the downfall. But, come prepared, with bug spray, you are good! Great shade! it rained buckets when we stayed here, so we didn't get to enjoy the park to it's fullest, but would stay again! We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great Park, be advised, only half of the campground loops have a sewer hookup, so verify in your reservations if that is what you want. Lots of things to do, great tours of the Military historical area. They have, i believe around 15 miles of bike/hiking trails, campgrounds are within a mile of the beach. They also have a great dumping facility, can handle 3 vehicles at a time, so rarely backed up. Campgrounds themselves are fairly private, all have fire rings and picnic tables, most are pretty flat, although with over five hundred sites, not all are perfect. Restrooms and showers are stocked several times during the day, and always found them to be clean. This has to be one of my favorite parks/campgrounds. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here in RV and part of our group stayed in a deluxe cabin. This is a large park and they just built the deluxe cabins. The sites are private and have a good variety of pull through and back in sites. In October the Discovery season begins and the price is lowered to $23. There are many trails and many miles of great beach walking. The deluxe cabins are nicely constructed with sleeping for about 6 people; you must bring your own linens. The cabins include a small kitchen with microwave, fridge, and there is a gas BBQ outside. There is a TV and DVD but no reception you could hook up your own satellite. Deluxe cabins run $62 per night during discovery season, an excellent value. Clean and very well maintained park. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Outstanding state park! Lots of paved bike trails to take you all over the park and to the beach. The RV sites are all shaded with huge trees and the park rules were observed, with respect to quiet hours. This is well worth a visit. Will go again.

We camped in the M loop which was very busy, but privacy was pretty good and people observed quiet hours. The online reservation system allows you to actually see the site you are choosing and gives you dimensions. Our 25' travel trailer and megacab truck fit just fine hitched, and there was adequate room on the very shady site. It was, however, very damp while we were there, and nothing ever quite dried out. The park is huge, but has wonderful, mostly flat, mostly paved trails for biking and hiking, and a most interesting historical area in addition to good beach access. Our loop hosts delivered wood right to our site and were very helpful and friendly. Bear in mind that this is Oregon coastal territory and if you want sun, you may need to go inland a bit. There are many museums and historical sites nearby. Our Verizon Wi-Fi worked fine, but ATT phones not so much. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very large park with lots of campers and hosts. There's plenty to see and do in the area. Vegetation and trees abound in amongst the sites, which are somewhat close together but not bad. We enjoyed the historical aspects of the old military fort located here (there was a wonderful event being held here this weekend too, with WW II displays and persons dressed in American and German costumes available for answering questions -- it was a terrific addition to our stay in this State Park). While we didn't have our bikes along, there are many paved trails for riding. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.
