20 Parks near Waldport, Oregon
Aug 2016 - $31.00
Small park full of permanent residents. Sites for travelers have no sewer and are very small. If anyone else had come in for the night besides our friends and ourselves, I would not have been able to put my slides out.
Website said $21.00, I was charged an extra $10.00 for my dog. No where on their website does it say that there will be a $10.00 charge per dog. I had no where else to go, so I had to pay it.
The lady checking us in was rather schetchy, don't know if she was high or sick. Do not recommend this park to anyone. - Wilma Owens

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

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

First thing: The lady in the office could do with some customer service lessons not at all friendly, the first rule on their list says' Frowns not allowed' maybe she needs to read that rule,the next problem was she sent us to site and when we got their was already some one it so went back to office and said to her there was someone on it she said no way and was making me feel like I was lying until another lady went out and checked and YES there was some one on it and then was more worried about who was on it then finding us another site after 15 minutes finally got a site. You have to pay for showers which was a shock after paying $35a night. The concrete site was good especially with all the rain we got there that day and night. - gray nomad

Nice neat park, but sites are a little tight. Not any room between them either, and since the whole park is basically a concrete parking lot, there is no vegetation separating the sites either, except for a few sparse plantings of sea oats. Our slides extended were literally 4 feet from our neighbors slides. We were fortunate enough however to have a site overlooking Alsea bay, so we didn't have any back neighbors. Office staff wasn't the friendliest we ever dealt with which was a little disappointing since they are the key to your first impression. The park is on Highway 34 which is very busy with all sorts of commercial vehicles as well as normal every day drivers. It's noisy at times, so try to get a site closer to the office which is further from the road and preferably overlooking the bay. Unfortunately, a night before we departed, our neighbor came over to tell us that 4 of the guests had gas cans stolen during the night from their site. Very upsetting to say the least. - Rick Frazier

Good campground, water view. Clean and electric, water pressure and cable all worked great. - snrstang

This is a great little RV park on the Alsea river a couple of miles inland from 101. We stayed overnight and were delighted with our quiet and peaceful site. The on site owner was very friendly, efficient and helpful. Laundry was reasonable and clean. There isn't much to do within walking distance but its a great place to relax. There is also a great lending DVD and book library. The park is very pet friendly with a clean wide walking path to the river and a nice open area that can be leash free. On our 2 month rv trip, this was our favorite park. I wish more parks were like this-not fancy but clean, well managed and inviting. - pwgfalcon

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
Jul 2016 - $17.00
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 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

Rate quoted is based on weekly rate. This is a small RV park (fewer than 15 sites) wedged in between a local street and a rock bluff. But it's in a great location for exploring the area. Most sites are occupied by older seasonal or permanent units though they keep things reasonably tidy. Manager was very accommodating and friendly. He also manages the car wash that is at the north end of the property so he's on-site during business hours. Our site was adequate size for our 36-ft fifth wheel and medium-duty tow vehicle. 50 Amp power was good, WiFi okay for e-mail and light web surfing - forget streaming. Verizon signal not strong but usable. - GypsiesAtHeart

Not much to look at, but great for an overnighter to look at the whales. Wifi weak at night, but strong in am, close to food. Would stay here again. - Jim Lee

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

The view from our site was one of the best views from a site we have ever had. We had a view of the waves crashing onto the rocks. We were in site 10 which has the view and a great picnic / firepit area. The only issue is getting the fifth wheel into the site. It is a steep site and it to a little maneuvering to line up the rig into the site, and because of the slope and days of rain, I had to slip into 4 wheel drive to back it in. The exit is just as hard as the exit is right next to the site but too tight to turn right out of the site. But it was worth if for the view. Except for this, the park was very nice. The park hosts are very nice and helpful. There is a dog walk area although not a fenced in dog park. WiFi was up and down, the cable TV worked fine. - akeller156

This is a beautiful RV park directly across from the ocean. We stayed in space # 39, which was great. We had a view of the ocean and could watch the waves crashing against the rocks that evening. Restrooms are clean, shower is private, lots of hot water and very clean. We went for a walk to the beach the next morning, just beautiful! I would recommend this RV park to everyone that loves the ocean! - TomSandyG

Our rate was the weekly rate, as we stayed for seven days. This park used to be a pretty well kept secret--not any more. It was full nearly every day we were there but the views and access to the beach explain it. Site was reasonably level, but hard to maneuver into from the narrow road, without putting the tow vehicle into the woods. The wifi worked well, cable tv was adequate. Restrooms were clean but small, and only one shower to each restoom and they're not heated so pretty cold in the morning. Road noise is not much of an issue unless you're in one of the "view" sites right near 101. It's all worth it if you love the ocean and beach, which you'll have pretty much to yourself. - blokeman

This is a membership park and run a little differently than what we are use to. We did have a reservation but found out we did not have a site assigned. We checked in and the ranger was not very welcoming. Handed us a sheet and told us to drive in and find a site, there are plenty to choose from, pick one, fill out the sheet, and return it to him. Well, not very many sites were left, especially ones that would fit our 5th wheel. We chose one that was dug into a hill just wide and long enough for the camper. Really tight.
We also had rain one night, mud all over the place. Not a place that we would go to again, let alone become members of. - John Borajkiewicz

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
