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. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Oregon State coastal parks are generally well laid out, large, clean with good access to the beach. This one is no exception. All site have 30 amp power, water, and parking is paved and level. There is ample room for tents and some extra parking in each loop. The showers need to be updated/repaired but they are acceptable as is. Access to the beach is well marked and an easy walk over fairly low dunes. The trail is also well marked from the beach side so retuning is also easy. We like the location within easy driving time to Canon Beach to the north and Tillimook to the south. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

In Tillamook visit the two cheese factories - Tillimook Cheese and Blue Heron french cheese. Tillamook also has a Fred Meyer (food and everything else), a Safeway, and a well stocked Ace Hardware. to the north plan to stop at Hug Point at low tide and a visit to Canon Beach (for shopping and good food) is always fun. There are lots of places to pull over and try to capture that perfect picture or just enjoy natures beauty at it finest.

$29 per night (plus an $8 reservation fee) was for a level asphalt pad site with 30A electric, water, picnic table, and fire ring. Most sites have shade at some point during the day while others are in full sun. This lovely campground is located along a spit of land separating the ocean from the Nehalem Bay and is near the scenic Pacific coast highway 101. This is bicycle country so there are many miles of trails for riding/ walking/hiking. The campground is so quiet you can hear the surf that is ¼ mile away and beyond the dunes. This campground also offers equestrian sites and a few fly-in/primitive sites near the airport. If you like beaches and the activities they offer, including crabbing, you’ll really like this park. The park is close to several coastal towns where there are plenty of restaurants, other shopping venues, and lots of opportunities if you’re historically inclined. AT&T cell service was four bars LTE and our Milliencom jetpack was getting two bars of 4G LTE so both could be used for internet access. There were several OTA TV stations. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful state park with beach access right out of the park. Sites were large, level and easy to access, with water and electric (dump station available). Great location for exploring the north coast of Oregon. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Great Oregon State Park on ocean. Have stayed before and will stay again. A bit tight for big rigs. Easy beach access. Hot, free showers. Very nice staff & volunteers. Clean. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The nightly rate reflects a motorhome with toad and the $8 fee ReserveAmerica tacks on for reservations. This was a nice campground with nicely spaced sites, good water and electric. We stayed in the C loop. The only gripe we had was the check-in process. Registration booth attendants were very chatty with folks who appeared to walk up and engage them in conversation while a line of various RV rigs waited to check in. Other than that, this was a nice park with beach access and lots of wooded trails. We'd stay here again. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Super state park, just south of Manzanita. Can ride your bike to town on safe path, and also on a loop road around the park. Several beach access trails in sand, huge beach. Sites are narrow blacktop with trees in some, others wide open. Didn't want to reserve, so came on a Wednesday at 1pm in mid-July. No problem getting a good site, assigned by Ranger, but given choices on map. Many families here, kids playing in street, etc. Restrooms in good shape, plenty of hot water. Overall, a better experience than other campgrounds. Liked this place a lot! Surprised to have strong Verizon signal for cell and internet. Will have to come back here again!

Rate includes reservation fee. Extremely nice Oregon State Park. Very close to the beach, just a short walk. Our group took three showers total and two of them were quite clean, but mine had some trash in the shower stall and enough hair in there that the shower started to fill with water while I was showering. I may have just hit the shower at an unusual time because my experience seems to be unusual. We have a long travel trailer and tow vehicle but had no troubles navigating the roads and pulled easily into our site. The map is very clear about the length of the sites. I do want to note that since the previous review in January, they have cut back the trees so there was no scraping on our RV or tow vehicle. If this park had sewer connections it would be a 10. We will return. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great Oregon State Park that is located right next to the beach. The volunteers do a great job in keeping the facilities spotless clean. I did not see one bit of litter anywhere. The bathrooms are older, but as I stated, spotless clean. BEWARE!!! This campground is extremely overgrown with trees and if you have a larger rig, you "WILL" come into contact with overhanging branches. I suggest walking the loops first to asses your access if you are fussy about your rig. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice Oregon State Park, providing hookups for RVs. The sites are heavily covered with trees, so only a few sites get satellite, but our Verizon air card and phone worked well. The beach is great for walking and there are wonderful trails and bike paths in the area. In the winter, one loop is for reservation, but there are two very large loops for first-come. Having two large loops open is great in that you can spread out and not be right next to someone. We will definitely return to this park. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

This park has a great vibe. The campsite roads are very narrow for a 40' motorhome. Sites were pretty level and rather large. Overall people seemed to be having a great time and observed the quiet hours. This state park would be awesome if they would spend a few hours and trim tree branches to make it more useable to all types of camping. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Great park and the best beaches just a short trek through the dunes. But, watch out, the coastal trees are short and grow across the paved RV parking spaces. The Ranger in charge of the park thinks it is OK for branches to lay on your roof or against your rig sides when you are trying to get in or out. About 70% of the sites are not good for tall 5th wheels. Most the sites will work fine for shorter travel trailers but the reservation system does not indicate which sites might work and the park will not trade sites for you.

Over all this was an excellent campground, staff were very helpful and any questions we had they were very pleasant and answered them. The campsite had plenty of room for our RV and horse trailer. We had a wonderful time riding the the beach that was close by. We also had one of our horses get away and a fellow camper helped us track him down. The stall was big enough for 4 horses. Very clean campground and looking forward to our next visit. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 5 nights and really enjoyed it. It was our second visit to this State Park and again a great experience. The hosts kept the restrooms more or less clean and they were all tiled and therefore were OK. After all, you are in a Sate Park and not in a 5 star resort. Most of the days it rained pretty heavy and nevertheless the grounds were still OK as the trails are paved. The wind can sometimes really shake your RV. There are plenty of deer walking through the park. Virgin mobile worked very well in the park. Hookups include water and power with a central dump station. We will definitely return next time we travel the Oregon coast. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
