Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $16.00
New owners were helpful and honored our reservation rate of $475 for the month of September. Price is going up big time to $1400. The will be coming up with a new discounted rate. This park's main attraction is the beach. For the price you get full hookups but the sites are too close together. Fortunately for us the place was not too buy most of the time and the sites next to us was vacant. The new owners have significant plans to improve the place, one of them could be the laundry mat and then the washrooms. For a campground this size, they do not have enough dryers and wash machines, plus the existing ones are not cleaned.
The men's washroom, the toilet cubicles are not big enough, quite narrow, made for skinny folk.
We have enjoyed the September/October timeframe for the last 4 years, with the new fee structure, I do not see us coming back. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
We always enjoy the free day when the State opens up their parks.

First of all the new owners are extremely friendly and very accommodating, we wanted to extend our stay for a few days and they adjusted or rate down and we were able to stay in the same site. The sites are a little tight but you don't feel that cramped. There is Lots of room to maneuver your rig and back in and park your tow. The beach is just a short walk away and there are lots of sights to see in the area. This is a great place great location. We will stay here again. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Motorhome.

As others have said, this park is a parking lot, but with nicely defined spots and a very wide aisle for backing in. Owners escort you to your spot and are very friendly. You can walk to the beach. Wish there was a little more room between the sites but it is adequate. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Motorhome.

New owners (July 2015) are very rude and disrespectful. I have overheard them speaking to campers, and their staff. I will not stay here again and I plan on spreading the word that their behavior is not acceptable. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Are you kidding me? The new owners are great. Stayed here for two weeks. Very narrow sites but that's how the county required it. Great place to bring dogs as the beach is only a quick trail away. Felt safe and comfortable here. Will definitely return next summer. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Best dining: The Depot and also The Pickled Fish.
Good breakfast as long as you're not in a hurry: Full Circle Cafe.
Visit Oysterville: Historic homes, church, and schoolhouse.

This would be perfect for several friends to get together as the spaces are fairly close together and share a grass strip at the back end of the sites. It is wide open, easy to back into, and there is room for multiple slideouts. It was very windy during our stay and we never did put out our awning. The beach is a short walk away through the dunes. We were close enough to hear the ocean. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is in a big, open, graveled parking lot. There is plenty of room to back into the narrow spaces, as the space in the middle is huge. Each space has a tiny picnic table, and a bit of bark. When your neighbor puts out the slide, you have a backrest for the picnic table! (slight exaggeration) I camped here with a group, otherwise it isn't a place I would choose, since I like campgrounds with a bit more grass, trees, views, etc. Folks were very helpful and nice, but you just can't get past the fact that this is a parking lot. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My family and I stayed here in September and had no expectations considering we were here more for visiting the town and enjoying the our time out by the ocean. Clean facilities, weak wifi (almost every rv park we've stayed at either has no or weak signal-so nothing new for us), friendly management and fellow campers. Would return if out that way again. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very clean, organized, and well-run park with front desk staff that treat guests as if they were staying in a fine hotel. It is only a short walk to the beach, and that's what we went here for. This is sometimes said to be the "longest beach in the world." I don't know about that, but it is very, very long, and very beautiful. The only downside to Andersen's is that the sites are small and close together. If you arrive during office hours (I think that's about 8 AM - 8 PM), they will escort you to your site and help you park. Big rigs will need this help, as it can be tight. We had little trouble parking our 29 foot Class C. The campsites are only a little more than a parking space, and there are no trees or shrubs to separate them. We moved our picnic table and chairs to the rear of the rig and sat out there when the weather was favorable. A terrific feature of staying here is the Pacific Transit bus that will stop on Highway103 in front of the park and take you either south into Long Beach, Ilwaco, and other points, or north toward Ocean Park, Surfside, and around the peninsula. One day we rode the long way around just to see the sites. The fare on that route is 35 cents. There is also reasonable cab service from Royal Cab, which we used one evening to return from a dinner in Seaview. (The bus doesn't run very late. Be sure to get a schedule.) We don't tow a car, so little things like this are nice when we want to get out of the rig for a while. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Motorhome.

The sites are WAY TOO close to one another. I mean really close. Uncomfortably close, so much so that we did not want to be outside at our camp table. It's about a 5 minute walk to the beach. Large grassy areas are not for pets. Difficult to find a place for my dog to do his business. Probably would not stay here again. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were assigned a spot one site away from the beautiful dunes with trail access to the huge beach. Park is just a bit outside of town which was fine with us. Drove into Ilwaco for fresh fish off the boats one morning. Small rest room / shower and laundry areas but clean, fairly priced and fully operational. WiFi weak, as we have found nearly everywhere we have stopped. Deer behind the RV in the tall grass one morning. Second day there, managers came by and asked what we were doing in that particular spot. Seems the site managers from the day before had escorted us to the wrong spot but they took full responsibility and got all the paperwork corrected, and all RVs situated. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects weekly rate. Easy in/out access off of WA-103. Park roads and sites are gravel and sites are closer together than we like but still very doable. Utility hookups were convenient and had great line of sight for roof mounted satellite dish. Can hear the ocean that is just steps away. We would stay here again. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
We liked the location of this park with it's short hike to the beach. There is plenty of room to maneuver although the sites are only of modest size. The utilities are good. It has an antiseptic environment mostly on gravel so would not be good for those seeking a "camping" experience. But it is a good location for the Long Beach experience. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Motorhome.

We've been to the Long Beach peninsula several times. We were very pleased with Andersen's RV Park ("Andersen's on the Ocean") ... it is in about the middle of the peninsula, and is convenient for access to most features one might wish to visit. The facility looks a bit off-putting -- like a large parking lot. But considering the weather and typical beach conditions, it's lack of charm is made up by its convenience. The camp sites are all back-in type along two sides of a huge gravel rectangle. This gives larger rigs plenty of room to maneuver. The spaces are defined by rail ties buried on the sides of the numbered space and the utilities are in an area covered with wood bark between each site. A wooden picnic table is present at each site. There is no shade (nor is there any interference for satellite TV from trees). On our visit, before the busy season got underway, we noticed that the sites were filled every other one -- that that our 'neighbors' were not too close. There is room for slide outs, if you have 'em. Restrooms/showers are old, but well maintained and clean. There were no long-term tenants. We would stay here again. We camped at Andersen's RV Park in a Motorhome.

First the bad news: It is basically a gravel parking lot. The good news: It backs up to the dunes and the ocean is an easy walk through the dunes. Very friendly hosts and the cable and Wi-Fi worked well. Also, lots of room to maneuver. There is some grass near the office and community building. We would use it again.
