We stayed here while touring the area so we were not interested in the parks amenities. We were on the public side #14 site. The park was clean and neat and was open between sites. We had ample space for our 40' and Jeep at our back in graveled site. The down side was that there is no WiFi at sites. One has to go to the laundry or clubhouse to get on. The huge downside was our 30 amp site had low voltage which could have damaged our RV if we did not have an electric management system. Our EMS kicked us out so we had no electric during the night. I checked voltage with my multimeter and it was very low. I reported it to gate guard as I left. If this is a flag ship Thousand Trails park, I am not interested. We will not return.

Visited Astoria and Cannon Beach SP and Cannon Beach town: Very picturesque
Very friendly staff. This is one of the nicest Thousand Trails parks we stayed at. It was easy to navigate our 40' motor home with toad. The gravel sites are level with FHU & 50 amp on the north side. The park seems to be well maintained. The 5mph speed limit is a bit bothersome but understandable. On our last stay we had a tent occupying a 30 amp site when all the FHU sites were full but there were plenty of tent sites available. The park is right in town so there is easy access to the Seaside activities. The Club House, Indoor pool, Tennis & Pickle Ball courts were all top-notch. The park was nice enough that we altered our trip to back-track to Seaside to spend another two weeks. We camped at Seaside Resort, Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.
This place is HUGE!! they have a public side on the south with big sites and the North side for RPI and Thousand Trail members NICE!!!! great staff!!! Quiet! ALOT of fun it is a gotta go!! We camped at Seaside Resort, Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.
We just spent 3 weeks at Seaside and we Loved that park. It was beautiful and well kept. it's gated. You have space between your sites so you don't feel like your sitting on top of each other. Easy in and easy out, FHU at every site, there is a lot of wild life to enjoy, the annuals sites all look very nice, and the staff was Great! So friendly and helpful. The amenities are great, it's close to town, within walking distance to the mall, the bus and trolley stop, and the beach. They pretty much have everything you could want in a park. Seaside should be TT's flagship park! We camped at Seaside Resort, Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff at the check in gate are very friendly and got us checked in quickly. Told to drive around and pick out a site then fill out a form and drop it off at the gate. The laundry facility is clean and all the machines worked. $2 a load for both was and dry and you can use your credit card and not have to worry about quarters which we liked. Those are the only positives. Our site was weed filled, asked if someone could come and mow or trim and that was never done during our four day stay. Also site was gravel and lots of small bits of trash in it like cigarette butts and pieces of plastic. The 5 mile per hour speed limit in park was annoyingly slow but since it is so congested I can understand the reason for it. But the threats in the rules of being fines and ejected from the park for non compliance was over the top. We won't stay here again. We camped at Seaside Resort, Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

I rated this campground low because the staff was not friendly at all. They made us feel like second class RVers, being with RPI, no one was helpful. I was made to feel horrible when asking for a refund for 2 nights. They said unless death or illness and I can understand that. My husband has severe celiac disease and other things. I asked where that was written and he couldn't find it and said he had to download it. The other thing, Wi-Fi, it was only available in the laundry room at certain times. On the south side it looked like a lot of full timers. Rules were not enforced as for dogs on leashes and had someone near us who just had their dog running around. Not a happy RVer.

This is one of the best Thousand Trails parks. Clean, level sites. Power is OK, hovered at 116V input the whole two weeks, never lost power. Verizon 4G wireless service is very good here, as well as the cell phone service. Wide, long beach about 1.5 miles away, great for running dogs. We have a zone pass, and pay $42 per month.

We had our first Thousand Trails stay at this park and really liked it. Everyone and everything was good for us! We had a nice site with a huge tree stump our boys loved to climb on. We spent time each day in the clubhouse playroom and on the playgrounds. Did laundry several times without any issue. We used the great free WiFi in the clubhouse and at the laundry room. I'm glad to have come here and will come back if we visit the area again. There are two side of the park. The side with the pool had a few rows of tight RV slots but the rest were more open and on the laundry side the sites were also more spread apart. Nice park! The stay was free for us because it was within our first 30 days in the system. We camped at Seaside Resort, Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

Quiet, clean park with good power and water pressure. Less than a mile to the ocean and blocks from shopping. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Would gladly stay here again. We camped at Seaside Resort, Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

The sites were spacious with plenty distance between neighbors. Wi-Fi was only available at the clubhouses, a negative for me. Most interior roads and sites were gravel, but there really wasn't much dust. Sites were level and utilities good. Park was well away from roads - so very quiet. Rate reflects RPI membership.

This Thousand Trails is well maintained and a pleasure to be at. The driving and parking areas are gravel which I like much better than asphalt. The WiFi is fast (65Mbps) although only at the clubhouses. Staff was friendly and helpful as always. It shows that attention is being paid to it. When I walked around I could see new decks in a couple of locations and signs of recent painting. Pool is indoors and has three times a day when it is adult only which is probably why the guy with his grand-kids had a difficult time. I imagine he took them and either didn't notice the signs or disregarded them and us old people like our quiet time in the pool. This gets a 9 instead of a 10 because it doesn't have a store or a restaurant which many facilities do and WiFi is not available at the sites. Activities were about average for Thousand Trails.

My wife and I stayed here over a weekend in our recently acquired motorhome and really enjoyed the experience. Campground staff were friendly and welcoming. The campground was clean and well taken care of. The beach is a bit of a hike to get to (about 20 minute walk), so we decided the next time we come we will be bringing the bicycles. Pool was reasonably warm and we enjoyed access to the hot tub. Only drawback was a lack of cable service which to us is minor. We really appreciated thousand trails policy of welcoming our 2 large dogs. We stay free at Thousand trails campgrounds because of our membership.

Our rate reflects Passport America rate. We camped here while considering possibly purchasing a Thousand Trails Zone Pass. Good thing we tried before the buy. Reservation process was slow. Took almost 15 minutes including a long wait while waiting for a "representative to assist". Unnecessary paperwork was "required on arrival". It was an attempt to collect marketing data. You have to find your own site. Site and interior roads are gravel. Site was unlevel. Noticed almost everyone had to add blocking. $3 resort fee for what I don't know and wanted $3 for cable per night. Tried to use the pool with kids and were treated aggressively bad by elderly "residents" who acted as if we were intruders. A complaint to the "ranger" generated nothing. We stayed 2 nights which was too long. Bath house in south end was unclean and smelled of urine. Playground equipment old rusted and unsafe for children.

This is the first Thousand Trails I would truly call a resort destination campground. The manager understands hospitality. All other TT managers should go through an internship here! The inside pool is always warm and the staff actually enforces the adult hours. This manager is a trained chef and prepares all breakfast meals. Do yourself a favor and have at least one meal here. I NEVER eat at TT because usually they are not so good, but this is better then the local restaurants at a better price. The sites are groomed and speeds are enforced. Staff is also very friendly and helpful. WiFi is also very fast. We stayed on the North side. We will absolutely return! We camped at Seaside Resort, Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.
