This is a very nice park in a great location next to the bay. There are some great sites in this park and some bad ones. They bay front sites and the "fire ring" sites along the canal are good size and the canal sites offer some privacy. However, the pull through sites along the road are narrow and, as one reviewed commented, there is a dangerous trench along the back. We were lucky to be on the canal, right next to the restrooms, which turned out to be a great site considering a lot of the "garden" in this Garden RV Resort are the flowerbeds in front of the restroom. The cell service was good as was the WiFi but there is no cable. There was a sign at the office that they had just discontinued it. They need to consider getting it back since it's an amenity most people expect in a park like this. We camped at Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
There are some aluminum boats for hire here but they are launched at the ramp down the road. The "marina" at the park has a fish cleaning station and facilities to cook crab.

Very pleasant and efficient check-in. Had a bay view site near the end of a row. Very tight backing in; gravel parking pad not very level side to side and end to end. Site had grass on the side with a picnic table and fire ring. Hook-ups functioned well and were conveniently located. Cable TV uses a converter box supplied by the park. Wi-Fi a bit slow. The park is nicely landscaped and maintained very well. Everything is very clean. Would stay here again. We camped at Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Nice park, next to bay, but no water access. Don't know where marina is, small inlet with water only at high tide, could only handle very small boat. Roads are paved with gravel sites. Narrow, just long enough for a 37 foot motorhome and toad. Grass between. Power, water, and wifi good. Cell (AT&T) weak, but usable. Ditches next to roads, difficult to maneuver. Saw a motorhome leaving and turned wrong and put back two wheels into ditch. Bottomed out causing damage to rear of the motorhome. I was told it happens often.

A tight squeeze on the access road between the rigs. It's an older park. Lots of crabbers camped here doing their thing. The sites are OK in size. There is a lot of greenery and it's right on the water so it's pretty. We would stay again because we like the location, close to interesting things like the lighthouse and the octopus tree. Roseanna's Café in Oceanside is a must. We camped at Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park has too many sites for the land available and we are all on top of each other. The sites are difficult to get into for just about everyone. Difficult to open the slides, had to put the wheels on the cement pad. Located right on the bay and those campers in front get a bay view. The campers in the back lots have no water feature, however, they are out of the wind and it is warmer. Restrooms in back are newer and very clean.

Nice park. We arrived after hours and found our reservation on the guest bulletin board. Our space 31 was spacious, shaded (interfered with our satellite reception but we hooked up to cable instead) had picnic table and fire ring. Would recommend this site if you want a view of the bay. Stayed 2 nights. Park also provides crab gear to rent and will cook crab for you. We did not try crabbing ourselves but asked where we could purchase clam chowder and fresh crab and were directed to try Old Oregon Smokehouse. We were not disappointed.

Rate reflects GS discount. I wouldn't call this a "resort", but we enjoyed our 3 days there. There's a lot of variation in the sites. We were a little disappointed after the lush grass in the campground we were in the previous night, since the pads here are dirt with a little grass in between, but after all, it is a working marina and the emphasis is on crabbing and clamming. We had a "bay view" site with which we could see the water at an angle. It was very short and we had to back all the way to the hill (with only a 33' unit), and trim some branches above. All the sites on this row except the "luxury" ones on the bay end are pretty small. There are others across a little bridge where the office is. Utilities worked well. WiFi was a little slow but acceptable. Staff was friendly and bathrooms very clean with good showers. Look for the seals on the sand bar in front! We camped at Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort in a Motorhome.
This is a nice place that we'll come back to. The staff was friendly and eager to help with clamming and crabbing. The sites are small and close together, so it made having a camp fire difficult. We paid extra for a "deluxe" site because it was supposed to have a view of the bay, but when a Class A showed up next to us, our view was gone. Wi-Fi is spotty. Overall, this is a nice place, with a lot of fun stuff to do in nearby towns. We camped at Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
This is a fabulous RV park! Without a doubt one of the best (if not the best) we've ever visited. We came for 3 days and ended up staying for 10. We had a great back in spot perched over the estuary with a view out over the bay. We watched the harbor seals, gulls, and herons as the tides came in and went back out. Our 50 amp site was roomy and level, the free wifi was fast, cable was excellent, and we had good cell reception. Staff was really nice and very helpful and accommodating. It's not a fancy park, but has a small store, and the grounds are beautifully maintained (one of the workers is a master gardener), and the setting is sublime. While we were there they installed dozens of huge planters and hanging baskets stuffed with gorgeous flowers. They have boat rentals and supplies for crabbing and clamming - also will cook them for you. There are several beaches close by for long walks on the sand. We really didn't want to leave. Our rate is with a Good Sam discount, and we also got 1 free night with our weekly rate. We camped at Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Quiet park with adequate facilities. Geared to those crabbing and clamming, but also near to other attractions in Tillamook. Very friendly and courteous staff. We camped at Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
$33.33/GS discount. Low hanging trees hit the front of the motorhome and drag across the roof. The roads and sites are gravel. The first site we had was way too small for our rig, so we moved to the next site and the 30 amp power didn’t work. The upper bathhouse and laundry were large and clean. The boat rental with the crab package (you can buy your license in the office) was a great value and a lot of fun to catch your limit of 12 Dungeness crabs. There are cleaning stations at the office and they will boil your catch for a small fee. The cheese factory tour is very crowded and not worth the stop, the prices are lower in the markets. The bay is nice with sand bars at low tide. We would stay here again. We camped at Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed in space #62 in the newer, upper area. We did have 50 A and our satellite worked fine. Laundry and restrooms were very nice. There is a small book exchange in the office. A previous review said not to miss the restaurant at Oceanside called Roseanne's so we went for lunch. It was great plus the beach there is lovely. Several people took advantage of the crabbing that is available in the park. They do quite a lively business and will cook them for you. Enjoyed our stay and would stay again. One minus is the road just outside the park is VERY rough, so take it slow. We camped at Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the upper section, the bathrooms and laundry were like new and clean. The washers and dryers only cost $1.00. You have to sign up for a time slot to use them. The utility hookups worked well. If you have slides on both sides some sites will be a tight fit. The lower section has many nice bay view sites. Crabbing was very good while we were there with many people bringing in their limits. The park will steam them for you for $7.00 a dozen. The park was well taken care of and the grass nicely trimmed. The only negatives were that some sites were small and a bit difficult to get into if there are cars parked at nearby sites. There were a couple of 40 footers here but they had to park their toads near the restrooms. Also the office hours were limited, but there were good instructions for late check-ins and you could just pick an unreserved spot and check in the next morning. Be sure to go to the beach at Oceanside and walk through the cave in the huge cliff to the most beautiful secluded beach we have ever seen. We would stay here again.

First, when you get to the road SLOW DOWN! Very rough road, narrow and lot's of pot holes. We really like this park. We sit and look out at Netart's bay. This is an older park and there are some things needing updates. However, the nice views, friendly staff and great access to Tillamook and other attractions and the beaches far out weigh the downsides.. We will stay here any time we get back this way.

Stay here only if you are a crabber. Not your voice ,but your fishing style. Lots of crab in the bay and a lot of crab gatherers. The view of the bay is OK, but just OK. The pad sites are nice and wide with no pull-throughs on the oceanside. Nice place to walk dogs. We had dinner at local Schooners and if you were not a local it seemed they did not care if you ever ate. Recommend Roxannes at Oceanside two miles away.
