20 Parks near Waldport, Oregon
Aug 2014 - $22.00
This small, quiet, friendly fish camp is on two levels: the upper level near the road is mostly old mobile homes and permanent RVs, the lower level on the river is short term and more attractive. Interior roads are gravel, sites are grass and there is adequate maneuvering room. The only two full hookup sites on the lower level are strongly sloped. Electric is good, water pressure is low but functional, wifi is fairly good, AT&T phone/data service in the area is good. The boat ramp is badly silted in and non-functional at low tide. The price reflects the weekly rate. - never settled

We had a beautiful spot next to the water. Very pleasant office personnel. We even received a thank you card for staying here. It could have been that the water lines had not been used for awhile, but we had to run the water for several minutes to get the rust out of the line. Even with our filter had to use bottled water for coffee and drinking. It could have been tricky getting into some of the spaces if it were busy, as some are at odd angles. Shower was good. A tranquil setting, however, we were the only ones by the river. - paxton

The friendly staff and peaceful river setting make this little park a gem. It will not appeal to everyone since it is a fish camp, off the coast and includes older mobile homes near the road. We were lucky enough to get a site near the river and office which optimized view, quiet and Wi-Fi reception. The owners and managers are dedicated to making your stay enjoyable. Laundry and restrooms are basic but clean. Utilities were good; our AT&T phones worked well, grass sites were firm and mostly level (though the river section is better suited to smaller units than to big rigs); a boat launch, dock and book exchange are available. We look forward to returning to this park. - never settled

This is a very low end park, and appears that it hasn't had anything put into it for some time. The bathrooms and showers would have been marginal except for the risk of falling through the floor. There were seasonal (or permanent) campers for the most part, and a few of these units will never see the road again. The price we paid reflected the Passport America discount; we would otherwise not have found the place. It was OK for an overnight, but not for anything longer. There were plenty of other overnight sites, albeit at higher prices. Our Verizon air card worked well at this location; there is no park Wi-Fi. - Jay Rutherford

We have a 40' fifth wheel so state parks are usually not for us. This one however, was fine for us. We stayed in mid October and there was one site for one night that worked for us. It was tight getting into site 67 but we did it. Just take your time.
In front of our row was another row of camp sites and they backed up to a fence on the beach. We had a great view of the crashing waves from our window.
The camp host was helpful and sells fire wood at $5.00 a bundle which seems to be the going rate most places.
We really had a great stay just enjoying the beach, the fire and meeting the neighbors. I would recommend this park (they take reservations) and would stay here again. - lindy j

My favorite Oregon State Park because of the ease in getting to the beach. Many other parks require quite a hike up and down dunes. Beachside is just steps to the beach. I usually book nine months in advance to get the ocean view spots (64), but was too late this time. We stayed on the ocean side further down where the trees and shrubs blocked the view but gave us a private space. Miles of beach that has very few people. It is pretty busy on weekends but mainly people stay close to the campground so you can walk and get away. My dog and I were tracked by coyotes one morning because there was no one else on the beach. Glad they left us alone because at one point I though of heading into the surf.
Some people may think the park is not as pruned and pristine, but I like the wild look and the privacy it gives. Beachside is my happy place and we stay there every year. - chattyKat

Paved roads and sites. Some of the sites are a bit tight and hard to get into and put out the slides due to trees. Also the sites are tight for parking the toad. Verizon MiFi works, sort off and very slowly. We were here at the end of October and had no problem picking a site that we would fit in. It's right next to the beach and our site was sheltered by trees which helped out because one night we had gusts of 60 mph, but the trees broke it up pretty well. Showers were great and spotless. The loop closest to the ocean seem to have the longest sites. One thing to note on all the Oregon State Park maps that they have online is that in addition to the location of the site it has the length so you don't have to guess. We'd stay here again in a heart beat. - pumper9x9

Positives: Concrete pad, totally level, new power posts with excellent connections. Power strong and constant, good water and water pressure. Small community yard with games on the lawn. Walking distance to grocery, hardware store and downtown area. WiFi and cable were both good. Power cost is 9 cents per kWh. Meter was read at time of parking and accurately reported at time of departure. No additional costs added to usage. Waterfront space 62 with excellent view of bay, tide changes, sea otters, harbor seals and multiple birds.
Con: After 4 years of fulltime RVing, we encountered a mouse problem here. The hardware store said it is common along the waterfront. Traps caught the first and droppings a few days later revealed a second visitor. Relocated to different park and after several nights of traps, we think the "visitors" were coming in/out from the large pampas grass planted between every space along the waterfront. The office personnel were nice, denied any mouse problems; however, other resident RVers have had the same experience. Truly this is not the fault of the park, however we will not return.
If you are not petrified of mice, this is a great park and wonderful location for multiple beaches and state parks. - Eureka12

We stayed here for 14 days and it was an awesome place. We would go back next year for our vacation. Make sure you ask for the honeymoon spot; it was the best spot in the park. - DandMandS

Have stayed here for 3 years now during the month of July and August.As previously stated, owners are very friendly and helpful.
Our site is large enough for our 40 foot motorhome and space alongside for our toad.
Keep coming back as it is just a short walk to the Alsea river and wildlife.
Will be back again. - Bluebird Bob

We stayed here one night and found it very nice. Great view of alsea river. Best dog run we've ever seen in a park. Showers/restrooms very clean and nice size. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Recommend???? - mcomeaux

We stayed here 3 nights. This is a nice RV park that has a trail down to the river. We watched the sea lions and some loons in the water. Laundry facilities and showers were nice. Each shower area was actually its own little room with toilet, sink & shower. The doors need some mechanism to show when occupied, but otherwise very nice & clean. Would definitely stay again. - jmholton

We stayed for 5 days. Well maintained and staffed campground. Store was well supplied. Great views of Alsea Bay, Bridge, and Waldport from southern sites. Hedges separate sites from one another and give moderate privacy. Had to disconnect truck from trailer and park sideways at front of site - no problem since we planned to sightsee anyway. Would stay here again. - phann

Spaces were all a bit too tight and moving around with a motorhome was challenging, but not impossible. The staff was super friendly and the store had a reasonable and neat supply of possible necessities. There were nice hedges to block out the neighbors; a little too tight for comfort. Main objection for big rigs is that the sewer pipes are too high and when the rig lowers, there is a reverse drainage to the motorhome, making hooking up and emptying not pleasant. There are 6 sites facing the river that are to die for, so ask for them. - DustyBob

Lovely, wooded campground on the Central Oregon coast. Very busy in summer. Beautiful, clean white sand beach is great for kite flying, walking, yoga, naps, etc. Goes for a long way. Water is usually too cold for surfing w.o a wet suit. Concrete stairs provide easy access to beach from campground. Great ocean views from some sites. Towns nearby have good restaurants. Tents are ok here. - waterwoman

This is a pretty good U.S. Forest campground with campsites to fit most trailers or motorhomes. That said, if you want to be on the beach, you will need to parallel park your vehicle. That can make it a little difficult for trailers and fifth wheels as the campsites are next to each other, like parallel parking on a street. You are able to get a view of the ocean from some of the back in sites, too. These sites have a bit more privacy and offer room to put your slides out without worrying about someone running into one. The campground host and area manager are very helpful and have a list of vacant sites each day for those of us who don't make advance reservations. - Bobbi1948

I couldn't switch the date of stay prior to August but we stayed in June of 2015. I booked 6 months in advance for #12 for the view. We were lucky that it would take our 30 ft fifth wheel with 8 foot slide. Others in front of us were right in the road. We didn't have anyone behind us most of the time (no view from that spot) so we could leave when we wanted. Others in front couldn't park their truck with the fifth wheels and if they wanted to get out when someone was in front they wouldn't be able to get the truck in. The park managers are sticklers for making sure you don't have your rig over the painted lines. They patrol constantly. The beach is nice but since it is just down Hwy 101 from Beachside we will continue to stay there instead of Tillicum. - chattyKat

Smaller Mom and Pop type park. Sites are well spaced. Some are at upper level of campground. Room for larger rigs. Nice, private path to cross the 101 Highway and down to the beach. Many sites have a view of the ocean. Some traffic noise, but not bad. - db8s

All hookups were in good condition. The very best view of the ocean that we have had. Hwy 101 right there and is a little noisy but didn't bother us much. - Donny Mackelprang

We stayed for 5 days. Interior roads are a bit narrow and wind around. This was no problem for us, but might be snug for a large MH. The area is beautiful. - phann

Overall an enjoyable park to stay in with pool, hot tub, shuffleboard, horse shoes, etc. Great location and nice concrete pads with cable, but most are tightly packed together and the road is tight to maneuver into spots.
The park itself is split into 2 divided by SE 123rd Street. You check in on the South Side where they give you a map with all the sites including length and satellite access. The South side of the Park is a long one-way road with camping spots on either side dumping out onto 123rd a bit farther East. The South Side of the Park has a dog run, Frisbee golf, family lounge, pool, hot tub (small), horse shoes, and beach access.
You can cross the street where the one-way ends, to enter the North side where there are several more spots and an adult lounge with shuffleboard and tv. - Bay Area Early retirees

DO NOT STAY HERE!! Pictures taken at Whalers Rest, Newport Oregon, a Thousand Trails RV Park. This is RAW sewage on the ground. You can see the site next to you. Has a septic line right by your front door. NO way to sit out in the extra small postage stamp of grass with the smell of septic. We complained 2 days straight, on the 3rd day I went to the office to see the manager. Upon my open complaint of "crap" in the yard, we were asked to leave for cursing at the staff. We are reporting to Health Department. We were leaving the next morning, but with this event demanded a full refund which they gave us.
There is NO WiFi at this park unless you want to go sit in their club house computer room. The cable TV that hardly worked was $3.00 a day extra. No cell phone service. The pool had crabs, my husband took out two crab shells, legs and claws. The walk around the indoor pool was narrow and slippery, dangerous for young children. The hot tub seats 4 people & had an odor. Playground was in poor condition. Many unkept trailers, Looks like they've been parked for years. - Magicalwoman

The people checking you in and out were very friendly and helpful. The park was large and near the beach, which was beautiful. There were a lot of trees, a nice playground and clean bathrooms/showers. The pool and hot tub were clean and fun for the kids. - LouiesMom
