This is our first time staying at Nehalem Bay State Park and was surprised at the lack of privacy in most of the campsites. Thankfully we had driven thru here our last trip down the coast and marked several sites we thought would be good. After staying here site B37 was a good choice! Had bushes that sort of blocked the roadway and in between the campsites. A lot of the others were just right on top of each other. Other than the privacy issue campground was very nice. Clean bathrooms and showers and pretty quiet for such a big campground. Several play areas for kids, beach was very nice and close, and deer roaming around. If you have horses they even had an area for you and your trailers to camp at!
This is my family's favorite spot on the Oregon Coast to camp. Nice, quiet little state park campground. The best sites are located oceanfront and you have to book them very early to get them. Our favorite is site 63 with full on ocean view. Next favorite is 78, doesn't have full ocean view but is pretty private and has easy beach access. If you got 78 and 80 together it would be great if traveling with friends! The hosts and rangers are great hear and take very good care of the campground. Clean bathrooms and showers!
