The spaces are in the forest so it was a cool respite from the heat of the summer. Kids rode bikes and had a great time. We stayed in a tent site so the fee was less. $29 for electric/water sites $19 for tents. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice little park in a heavily wooded area. It's about a quarter mile off US-101. There's an upper set of sites on either side of the loop road. Except for one, they were full hookups. Further down the hill is a bigger loop with a mixture of yurts, full hookup (1), W&E, and non-hookup sites. The length of sites range from 38' to 56'. These sites were decent for privacy even though this park has close sites: 2, 5, 7, 9, 40, 45, 48, 54. #2 where we stayed was across from the registration both. We arrived without reservations on a Sunday at 2pm in the middle of August. They had several sites available but were full by 5pm. The registration person/host was especially friendly and came out to greet us when we stopped at the registration area. She told us exactly what sites were available. There is an easy trail around Lake Marie. It's scenic and only a mile walk. You can either walk up or drive up a quarter mile to the lighthouse. There you get a view of the ocean and can visit the museum and gift shop. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice, older park with a mix of full hookup; water & power; and no services sites. All driveways are paved. Leveling can be an issue in some of the smaller sites. Most larger sites are heavily shaded. Bathrooms and showers are older but very clean. The park is popular with tent campers and smaller RV's. Sites for 40' RV's are limited and some have tight access due to mature trees. Good AT&T service; spotty Verizon service. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Reedsport about 4 miles away, has a small Safeway, hardware store, and limited services. North Bend is major shopping area, about 20 miles south.

Double D's, Kitties and Bedrocks do reliable food in their respective genres. Fresh oysters and fish are readily available.

Umpqua Lighthouse and Museum, Heceta Light, Sealion Caves and Coos Bay Museum are all worth seeing.

50 sites but 10 are yurts, $26. Twelve Sites with full hookups, 8 water & electric, and 23 basic sites. Site 39 This is a very nice state park off of 101 but easily missed. The campground has one loop with nice sites but some are not level. Some sites overlook Lake Marie, a small lake surrounded by the woods and dunes. There is a mile trail around the lake and a small beach. One can canoe and fish in the lake. The bathhouse is clean with showers. We were there during the week and it was not full but I imagine on a weekend it fills up since they do take reservations. No dump station at this park. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The campground is just before you head up the hill to the Umpqua River Lighthouse, which is a working lighthouse with a coast guard station there. Visiting the lighthouse is also a great place to see the whale migration twice a year. Over 15,000 reported. Heading down away from the campground you go by beaches and the bay which your state park pass gets you into. This campground is at the halfway mark of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area which stretches 47 miles from Florence to Coos Bay. At the lookout near the lighthouse you can see in front of you the ocean, dunes and hear the ATVs. It is beautiful.

Quiet campground, tucked away in the woods just between Highway 101 and the Umpqua River Lighthouse. Rate is for a dry site (paved). Ours was not level and all others looked sloped as well. Enough space between sites and some greenery made for good privacy. Water taps along the road through. Quite a few generators were running outside permitted hours including one on the camphost site. Once those were all shut down it was very quiet. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Truck Camper.

Beautiful park. Spacious sites and well maintained. Nice hosts! Convenient location but not adjacent to ocean or bay. Does have a small fresh water lake with hiking paths and small beach area. Nice for kyacking! Forest area so satelite TV service is tricky!! We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

Just did not care for this campground. Camp hosts not all that helpful or friendly and mostly sold wood. Information said site would accommodate a 40 foot motor home but we had to rearrange and move the coach our second day there in order to park car so it would not be on tree roots. Very dense trees coverage so no satellite. Nice hike around the lake and other campers were friendly so our stay was fine. Just probably wouldn't do it again there. Oregon has a lot of nice state parks. We went through a number of campgrounds on day trips from there and would pick another one next time. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

Convenient for exploring the lower Oregon Coast. Lots of trees so no satellite signal and weak Verizon signal. Tight, mostly level site. Clean site. Rate reflects outrageous Reserve America fee which is $8 per reservation. Great tour at the nearby lighthouse. Elk viewing sight east of Winchester Bay had a HUGE number of elk at sundown. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful State Park, however, it has not been upgraded since it was built. The location is great, so close to the coast and the Umpqua lighthouse, but the facilities are dated. The hosts are friendly and helpful, but we really had problems with the sewer connections and never really got a tight fit even with much trying and host help. Some of the sites are pretty shaded and can be a bit dark especially during the frequent local rains. It is nice to have campfires and we will return again only for a shorter stay. We stayed for 2 weeks and one would have been perfect. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park was nice and well maintained. The hosts were very helpful. But as with state campgrounds there are campfires. They were not to bad but we needed a place for the night and this was almost a last resort. The lighthouse on the property was neat and a historical monument and still working. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

We had great memories of walking from the park to the beach through wonderful dunes when we visited here 25 years ago. We were stunned when we looked across the dunes from the viewpoint at the lighthouse. The former dune area looked like a vast sand parking lot, flattened by all the ATV usage. However, at dusk, standing on the campground trail overlooking the dunes, with no ATV's in sight the softly rolling dunes still had a magic appeal. The small campground is cozily nestled between hills with a short walk to the very attractive lake. There are campsites at the top of the hill but we prefer the sites in the valley. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice, quiet, small campground. A nice trail around the lake for walking the dogs. Right down the road is a wonderful view over looking the dunes and ocean. Enjoyed the food in Winchester Bay. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice smaller State Park located in the Oregon Dunes. Small lake within walking distance and one of the most beautiful lighthouses on the coast. Heavily treed so satellite TV not useable. Umpqua river close by with great crabbing and salmon fishing in the fall. Facilities old but clean. Great place to spend a few quiet days while touring the coast. We camped at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park in a Travel Trailer.
