1 Park near Nehalem, Oregon
Oct 2015 - $1.00
I want to clear up the confusion about what is happening at one of the best state parks in Oregon, because ORPD isn't explaining it very well on their website.
Loops A, D and E are reservable online or via phone. That does NOT mean you have to have a reservation. It DOES mean that you have to contact the rangers or the camp hosts before setting up on a particular site, especially on Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights. If you just grab a site you will likely have to unhook and relocate when the folks with the prepaid reservation arrive at 10 pm to set up next to their friends.
Loops B and C closed and under construction to install 50 amp power and new water connections. These loops will reopen roughly next spring.
Loop F is first come, first served. If the site isn't occupied when you arrive, you can move in. If you don't have a reservation, go there first. That's where the new showers are, so Loop F may be the best loop anyway. - bobcovey

The rangers and host are very friendly and helpful. Reserve America even has a picture of your site in the search. The dog friendly beach is right over the dune. There are horse corrals in one area. The beaches are spectacular as much of the northern Oregon Coast. Most sites have electric and water. No cable but I was supprised how well the air antenna worked. There is a dump station we used on way in and 5 days later on way out. We will return. - MW91301

Price includes a one time online reservation fee of $8. Of the five Oregon state park campgrounds we stayed at, this was our least favorite. That being said, this is still a wonderful campground. It is more open than the other coastal state parks and was very crowded the weekend we were there. The restrooms and showers were immaculate as was the rest of the campground. The sites are fairly level and blacktopped so leveling your rig is easy. There are full hookup sites with 50 amp service available, however there were none available that were long enough for us, so we had 30 amp service and no sewer, which was not a problem. There is no cable or Wi-Fi, but we had good reception with our antenna and a good signal for both data and voice with Verizon. There is no dog run, however there is a paved track that goes around the park and airstrip that is about two miles long that is very good for walking your pet. You can definitely hear the ocean from your campsite. We were in a site furthest away from the beach and could still hear it. Noise doesn't bother us, however if road noise bothers you, it might be a good idea to get a site further away from the beach. We were here for three nights and would stay here again. - Dale07
