Reserved well in advance since this was high season. Got a pull thru for the asking, fairly level with some shade. All folks at registration, store and cafe very pleasant and accommodating; obvious maintenance going on all the time. Right across the street from the beach (there's a beach web cam on their site) which allows vehicles (we did not risk it but many surfers, and others, did). FHU all functioned properly; I did not try the cable hook up, may have just missed it or perhaps my site didn't have it, and, I don't recall being given a list of cable channels at registration so....., maybe they don't have it? Gale force winds (no kidding!) our last night and day but staff was always out keeping driving paths open and assisting RVers with reeling in unruly awnings, chairs, etc. Pricey but I'd stay here again. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
The pizzeria right next door was ok but the real good beach food is the taco shop across the street. Campground store also has locally caught seafood.

This is the first time we have been able to get a site here. We stayed here one weeknight the first week of August and had a fairly level, FHU, back-in site. Most of the 120+ RV sites are back-in, but there are some that appear to be pull-in sites. There are also about a dozen tent sites and twice that number of cottages. Except for the tent sites, the other sites are very close together. I believe all RV sites have 60 channel cable TV. Some sites may be satellite friendly. The big negative is their 802.11 network which is completely unreliable. They have not yet figured out how to prevent selfish customers from over-loading the bandwith by using multiple devices and doing things like streaming, skyping, etc. There is an indoor pool, a club house, and a playground. There are 2 bathhouses and one includes a laundry facility. It is a 5 minute walk to the public beach across the street. There are several local restaurants near the entrance to the park. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Motorhome.
As others stated the space from site to site is a tad tight but my 3 slideouts no problem.. Service pedestal is good with 30 and 50. Great cable tv .. Wifi is so so as to be expected. Checkin was quick and courteous.
Main facilities nice with store, sand which shop, fresh seafood catches, Tillamook ice cream, etc
We are using this location as our central hub to make short excursions up and down the coast. I'd return here again.
We also looked at several other locations as we drove by them and I'd have to say for our needs we made the best choice..
Pet friendly... A big plus. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
The pizza is great here and across the street is a nice pub brewery with a fair menu..
We stayed at this park for a month, paid the monthly rate of $639.00. A great value for being across the street from the beach. Our site was clean, a bit narrow. The park is well maintained and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. They were immediately available for any issues at your site. Our dog got sick and the staff recommended a wonderful vet for us. We will definitely return to stay again. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
A great place for breakfast is the Village Coffee Shoppe in Pacific City. The food is really good. They make homemade doughnuts that are not to be missed.

Nice park walking distance to beach, shops and restaurants. WiFi not so hot, they are currently having trouble with their cable vendor - I did not bother with the free cable box they offered. For my size they put me in a tight spot that was tough to get in. Had a nice clean indoor pool. Great value for the price. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here many times since 1986 and it just gets better each time. Friendly staff great sites and right across from the Ocean. Sites are large and well spaced. The pull-thru sites are long 60' and wide. The indoor pool and hot tub were always clean. Very happy with my by chance find in 1986. We always come back and will continue. Rate shown is weekly divided by seven and includes tax and a 10% discount for stays in the month of April. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Large park with many full timer residents. Some are homes. Good park, but large groups gather for reunions and such. Services are great, good Wi-Fi. A short walk to the beautiful beach. The Pacific City area is secluded and hard to reach, but wonderful when you get there. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground opposite famous beach with a huge boulder. Terrific location but campground experience very unpleasant. Sites were very narrow with fire rings right next to RV. On other side of site, picnic table was next to sewer connection of adjacent RV. A family set up RV plus 3 tents which created a lot of noise. The bathrooms were dark and dingy. Management told us they are planning to redo the row where our site was located. Only recommend staying here if there is need to be right by the beach. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Old campground made for old time camping. Very few big rig sites. Very close together and a lot of activity as it is only campground in area and popular beach across street. Beautiful beach though and good restaurants. Satellite tv hit and miss. Cell phone ok. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount. The park is located just across from the beach with the distinctive Haystack rock (smaller than the Cannon Beach one). The staff was very friendly and explained everything well. Adjacent to the check-in office is a well stocked grocery store offering competitive prices. The park itself is nice, very well maintained. Sites are parallel, some separated by some hedges (where deers are nibbling on at dusk). Our site was narrow and a little short so we needed to park our truck elsewhere. But it was easy to get in and out and levelling was no problem. Hookups in top condition. WiFi was excellent. Very quiet, little to no traffic, just the ocean roaring constantly, a sound we don't consider to be noise. Lots of rabbits running around sometimes even approaching you instead of running away. Probably a lot of fun for kids. We can recommend this park and would stay again when in the area. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large, family and kid friendly park. The roads are gravel with paved sites. We were here at the end of summer vacation so the park was full of kids. The beach is right across the street, but the park also has an indoor pool. The showers are some of the nicest we have found. The owners are super nice and want to please. They own the pizza place and market next door, both of which are reasonable and convenient - no need to leave the area. Maintenance is always busy keeping the park as nice as it can be when it is full and busy. We would return but after school is back in, the park will be totally different during the week, which would be nice for those of us who no longer have kids.

Extremely nice staff that works here. Check in was quick and efficient. We had a very nice pull through site with a little bit of shade and the Wi-Fi and cable TV worked great. This is definitely a family park in the summer time and everyone seems to be having a good time. We would recommend this RV Park to everyone. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Negative: Just one thing. Our 38' RV barely fit into the space. We were not even able to walk beside one of the sides of our unit when parked. The campground did have shrubbery between the sites which helped, however we could hear our neighbors conversations as they sat at their table. Positives: Proximity to many things and areas to visit. The beach access could not be more convenient, the pool is outstanding, excellent laundry facilities. and the desk changed our reservation from a back in to a pull through at the time of entry. We will not stay here again due to the size of the sites. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Some of the office people are not very nice, but the Park is GREAT! Very dog friendly, everyone very friendly. Easy access to the beach. Close to all eateries. We have been coming every summer, and have made great friends with some of the full timers there as well as other campers who come every year as well. Cant wait for next year! We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Motorhome.
This could be a really great park, but right off the bat we had a problem. We had made the reservation months in advance and had a confirmation e-mail from the park for a pull through with 50 amp. Upon check-in we were told that only a 30 amp pull through would be available to us. We showed our confirmation letter and were told that it didn't matter since they didn't have that in their notes and that was what counted. After a few minutes of discussion we walked the park to see what spot they wanted us to use. It was A-15 which is possibly the worst spot they had. We were able to negotiate to spot A-17 which had some privacy. At any rate, the employee checking us in had a bad attitude and since we were staying here for a week it gave us a bad feeling about the place. To our amazement while we were setting up two couples stopped by and asked if we got the type of site we had reserved. Turns out they had been through the same routine. Within a day we met 5 couples who had the same problem. In fairness after our week here we left a survey form for them, and the owner called us within hours and was very gracious and said she didn't know they were having this problem. Turns out we were lucky to get a pull through site. One couple that expected a pull through and were new to trailering were assigned a tight little back-in. As to the park itself, the pool is excellent and the 8-9AM for adults only worked well for us. They also have a small workout area which is good, except later in the day when kids in wet swimming suits take that over, and make a mess of it. Later in the day the kids take the pool and hot tub over. The location is excellent and the Cape Kiwanda area was really beautiful. For a restaurant the Pelican Pub was outstanding and their gourmet pizza was great. Bottom line for us: had a great time but would not use this RV park again since they don't honor your reservation. For us that is a deal breaker. We camped at Cape Kiwanda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
