Short drive to the beach. Quaint combination of vintage lodge, cottages, trailers, and RV park. If you love vintage trailers, you will appreciate the assortment. Interesting old resort town with lots of lovely homes and right next to Long Beach. Grass sites. Not too reliable electricity for big rig. Good we have surge protector. Very casual type of place. We spent 4 days here. Enjoyed driving 4wheel on the beach and letting dog run on beach. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Sou’Wester Resort is a historic lodge and vintage RV park on the Long Beach Peninsula about 15 miles North of the Columbia River. The history of the property dates back to 1892 when the first vacation cabins were built. It is now a collection of rustic cabins, vintage travel trailers and RV sites. The location is a block off the highway and quiet. RV sites are on and around a grass area surrounded by mature trees, and have full hookups. Sites vary in size, the larger ones being approximately 50 feet long and 20 feet wide. All are back-ins but some can be configured as pull-throughs when the park is not full. Most sites do not have fire pits or tables but there a large community recreation building and fire ring. There is no cable TV but most sites have satellite TV access. There is free Wi-Fi, but it is slow to the point of being almost unusable at times. Our Verizon MiFi worked but was also slow. The beach is less than a mile down a paved road, and there are two good restaurants within easy walking distance. A small fleet of loaner bicycles is available. We enjoyed our stay and will go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When they say rustic they mean it. This place is old and they are proud of it. Sites were fine but very sterile. We were the only guests in the RV park and that made it seem spacious. In high season I would imagine this to be cramped. Nice staff. They have cool old travel trailers permanently parked for rent as well. Reasonably close to the beach. The women liked it and the men thought it was over priced and run down. We camped here in a Motorhome.
