This small, quiet, friendly fish camp is on two levels: the upper level near the road is mostly old mobile homes and permanent RVs, the lower level on the river is short term and more attractive. Interior roads are gravel, sites are grass and there is adequate maneuvering room. The only two full hookup sites on the lower level are strongly sloped. Electric is good, water pressure is low but functional, wifi is fairly good, AT&T phone/data service in the area is good. The boat ramp is badly silted in and non-functional at low tide. The price reflects the weekly rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a beautiful spot next to the water. Very pleasant office personnel. We even received a thank you card for staying here. It could have been that the water lines had not been used for awhile, but we had to run the water for several minutes to get the rust out of the line. Even with our filter had to use bottled water for coffee and drinking. It could have been tricky getting into some of the spaces if it were busy, as some are at odd angles. Shower was good. A tranquil setting, however, we were the only ones by the river. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The friendly staff and peaceful river setting make this little park a gem. It will not appeal to everyone since it is a fish camp, off the coast and includes older mobile homes near the road. We were lucky enough to get a site near the river and office which optimized view, quiet and Wi-Fi reception. The owners and managers are dedicated to making your stay enjoyable. Laundry and restrooms are basic but clean. Utilities were good; our AT&T phones worked well, grass sites were firm and mostly level (though the river section is better suited to smaller units than to big rigs); a boat launch, dock and book exchange are available. We look forward to returning to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not sure why this place has not been reviewed before. Especially since several of the parks along the Alsea river have been. This is a very friendly park. If you have high tastes and an expensive rig maybe its not for you. No the restrooms and showers are not new, but very, very clean. Yes there are permanent residents and trailers here and no they are not new. But the managers are great, the owners very nice. Its very, very quiet. The fishing is awesome if you get here the right time of year, and seeing Elk walking thru the park is just special. We highly suggest this park. Yes we did go thru all the parks along the Alsea Hwy and this is better than them all, yes McKinley's is new but we have a problem with a 100% concrete rv park. Easy drive to Florence, Yachats, Newport, and Lincoln City. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
