What a fantastic campground this was! Loop B is reservable and we had a reservation but not for as many days as we'd hoped to stay. On arrival, we found several wonderful sites in Loop A, the walk-in loop, and easily changed our site at the self-serve kiosk. We stayed 13 nights and loved this park with its tall pines. It is easily drivable to Crater Lake, Klamath Lake, and a bit longer to Bend. Park hosts are attentive and helpful, and almost as soon as someone pulls out, they're sweeping and sprucing up the site. Blacktop paved sites are shady with good privacy in many and easy to back into. Trails lead to the park's logging museum, by creeks and rivers, and throughout the park's grounds. Those with children had brought bikes and scooters; there is no playground at the campground. Small laundry room by the restrooms; all seemed clean and tidy. Tent campers have dedicated sites in the middle of Loop A with water at every third (or so) site, adjacent to the restroom, although some opted for the RV sites. This was the nicest RV park we found in the Crater Lake area. We will make this an annual trip.
This is really two different campgrounds on the same site. The 'Forest Section' is nicely set in the trees and landscaping which backs up to Highway 101, and sites are not not spacious but adequate, although you will hear road noise, not ocean waves. The 'Oceanview Section' is up the hill, passing a third section with back-in sites along the road, and features stunning views of the ocean from three tiers (and for double the price of the Forest section). Reservations for the Oceanview section are made a year in advance and there is a waitlist. There is a good trail (steps) to the beach from that section and another flat one midway between the Forest and the Oceanview sites. Restrooms on the Forest level have pay showers and concrete block walls, and a laundry room with 4 washers and 2 dryers. Restrooms on the Oceanview level are newer and heated with ceramic tile and free showers. All were clean. Campfires are permitted only on the Forest level, but sites can be a little too narrow for them unless you park your tow vehicle elsewhere. Staff was very friendly and helpful, even lending us an extra long coax cable, and including a little bag of locally made saltwater taffy with registration. The park is located just north of Depoe Bay, and the area has many attractions.
We camped in the M loop which was very busy, but privacy was pretty good and people observed quiet hours. The online reservation system allows you to actually see the site you are choosing and gives you dimensions. Our 25' travel trailer and megacab truck fit just fine hitched, and there was adequate room on the very shady site. It was, however, very damp while we were there, and nothing ever quite dried out. The park is huge, but has wonderful, mostly flat, mostly paved trails for biking and hiking, and a most interesting historical area in addition to good beach access. Our loop hosts delivered wood right to our site and were very helpful and friendly. Bear in mind that this is Oregon coastal territory and if you want sun, you may need to go inland a bit. There are many museums and historical sites nearby. Our Verizon Wi-Fi worked fine, but ATT phones not so much.
This is an urban campground, not a destination park. Sites are tight, roads are narrow, corners are tight -- be very careful lest you skim an overhanging eave or tree (like we did, darn it). Restrooms are cleaned daily, but people do track in bits of grass and dirt. Showers nearest the office are in the restrooms and have curtains, a hard rubber mat in the stalls, and a somewhat slippery floor, but hot water was plentiful. Showers near the community room are individual, lockable, and ceramic tiled, but usually had grass and dirt after the morning rush. There is road noise. Cable is available on one side but not (mostly) on the other. There are shade trees and landscaping, and staff is very helpful and friendly. Most sites are pull-through although you likely will need to unhitch. Some back-in sites near the entrance are larger and blacktopped. We were on a gravel site, but it was level.
