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. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great prime rib at the local bar on Friday's named Flounder Inn.

Great Chinese food just down the street also.

Has a grocery store (Ray's) that pretty much has it all.

Walmart is 30 miles away in Newport.

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. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Motorhome.

We became full time RVers as of Aug. 2015 and this is by far the nicest park we have stayed at. The park is very clean, quiet, well maintained, and very pet friendly. The owners are wonderful people and really do an excellent job of running and operating this campground. The sites are very spacious and wide allowing your RV and tow vehicle to be side by side. We had full hook ups to include WiFi. The WiFi was decent, we only had problems when there were a lot of rigs in the park. There is a large off leash pet area for your fur babies to have some freedom to roam and play which is extremely nice for those of us that travel with our pets. The laundry and bathroom/shower facilities are extremely clean and well maintained. We came with the intention of staying for one month, but liked the park so much we ended up staying two months. This is definitely a campground we will come back to and recommend it to anyone traveling to the Oregon coast. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Motorhome.

One of my favorite places, and the only park I've returned again to since going full time almost two years ago. The owners are extremely nice and helpful. The park is well taken care of and the dog area is great! Each space includes a parking place for your tow. All utilities work well, including the cable TV. Right on the river, there are abundant opportunities for wildlife viewing (and photographing). Rate reflects a combination of one month at monthly rate and one week at weekly rate. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Motorhome.

We decided to stay at this park for the remainder of the summer mainly due to how helpful & kind the hosts are. Grounds are clean and well kept. The view of the river and surrounding hills is spectacular.

While other reviews complain about the 'dog' area being lush green and RV areas being parched this is due to the owners practicing water conservation. The 'dog' area is located in the marsh area so it gets water from the river. No signs of dog poop. Bags provided and no extra cost for dogs.

Overall great place, great value and very quiet. We would definitely come back here. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We spent a week at this park a year ago and enjoyed the experience so much that we came back this year for a month. We will not return. We have always flown the US flag at the rear of our 5th wheel but at this park, this year, the owner became very angry and told us that we could take the flag down or he would throw us out. He told us that he was concerned about what people would think if they saw the US flag on an RV in his park. This came a few hours after we paid $500 for the month. No refund, of course. Last year it was no problem. Same flag, same flagpole, same attachment to the 5th wheel. Bad experience! The rate reflects a monthly rate. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The setting along the tree-lined river is pretty, but I guess I'm not as enamored as the other reviewers with the park in general. I suspect the reason for the higher ratings by many folks is for the off-leash dog area away from the RV sites along the river, where some dogs run around pooping while owners are MIA. When we arrived, we were directed to our site, but there was no way we could maneuver into the site with our 37' 5th wheel. A neighbor came out and suggested we either ask the host to move his motorhome across from our site, or leave the park, go turn around in a parking lot down the road and enter from the other direction, backing in on our blindside instead, as he did. We did finally leave and re-enter and got into the site. Sites are wide enough and long enough, gravel and grass, but interior dirt/gravel roads and other adjacent sites make it difficult to maneuver. Utilities are well placed and work well, cable is clear with 40 channels. Wi-Fi was ok sometimes, but slow or non-existent at others. Park is on Hwy 34, so road noise is evident but not intolerable. It is 3 miles from downtown and the coast, so it is away from all that hubbub, which is good. Restrooms and showers were clean and maintained regularly; not sure how much time is spent on exterior grounds. The priority here is the dog area/fire pit area near the river. Having said all that, it was a good choice for us for our stay in the area. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here last July and came back for two months this year (July and August). We like the people who own the park and the fact it is 3 miles from the beach so don't get the fog. Views down by the water are great.
Wifi is ok most of the time, depending on how full the campground is.
Great power (50amp) water pressure is ok and sewer is fine. Didn't use the cable as we have satellite. Will stay here again next year as it is out of the hustle and bustle of Newport. Close enough to beaches for us. Good supermarket in Waldport also. WalMart is in Newport. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Chinook RV park for a week while exploring the central Oregon coast. It was a convenient location for doing this and we enjoyed our stay. There are many good things about this park but I think it has been overrated by previous reviewers. By far, the best amenity of this park is the "dog run" area by the river. This is the area pictured on their website; not the camping area which, unfortunately, is just a large, treeless field. Having said that, the sites are pretty large with two gravel areas; one for the RV and the other for the tow vehicle. And there is a nice grassy area separating the rows. The restrooms are spotless and the laundry area has one of my favorite features a "take a book, leave a book" library. Cable was good as was cell coverage but I had trouble logging into the WiFi. Before booking this park, I would recommend looking at the satellite view on Google to get a truer picture of it. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice owners and very welcoming. Park is dated but well kept and in a very handy location for this section of the coast, about 3 miles off 101 and out of the coastal winds and fog. Very nice dog area for off leash, only it is not fenced. A dog friendly park for sure. All in all a very nice place to stay in this area, close to Waldport, Yachats, Newport. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this park. Beautiful water views and sunsets. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful small park about 3 miles inland from Waldport up Hwy 34 right on the Alsea River estuary with a small park-like area covering about 100 yards of waterfront. Blue herons, eagles and numerous other birds frequent the area and occasional elk can be seen on the opposite side of the Alsea. Owners live on site and are extremely friendly and helpful. Great base camp for exploring the entire central Oregon coast from Bandon to Tillamook. Just over an hour to the Willamette Valley at Corvalis. We stayed for a month and found plenty to fill our time. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Motorhome.

Was just going to stay for one month, but extended our stay for a second month. Park is old but fairly well kept. Owners very friendly and spaces are adequate for our 40 foot bus. Sites are level with gravel base. WiFi is OK most of the time. If the park is full sometimes it drops out and we use or Verizon as backup. Speed is good, tho. We have indoor cats so didn't use the dog run down by the water. Good views of river down there. Will stay here again next year when passing thru. We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very friendly owners ensured we had a pleasant stay here. This a dog friendly park & is very clean. Road noise during the day yet very quiet at night. Enjoyed seeing the eagles & elk down by the river. ATT cell service worked here but data was a bit slow but not bad enough to complain about. 60 channels on clear cable service. Rate reflects monthly rate. We are coming back next month! We camped at Chinook RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
