“Never stayed at a Cleaner State Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

We were passing through in our RV and decided we HAD to stay another day. I cannot say enough good things about camping at this State Park! We chose a spot in Campground A, which put us in the loop away from any highway noise so it was nice and quiet. The bathrooms were amazingly clean and nicely tiled with vaulted wood ceilings. No cost for a shower and the water was nice and hot. Plenty of facilities so no wait for a shower.

We used the laundry facility which was available from 7 AM to 9 PM. The dryers, like most in such places, left the clothes pretty damp, even after a couple hours of drying. Washers were $1 and dryers $1.25. There was a coinchanger in the laundry room.

An amazing walking path takes you down to the beach by way of flowers, rocks, etc. one can also drive a short distance to the picnic area and descend using ramps and steps. The beach is beautiful with enormous boulders, splashing waves , tidal pools and drift wood. Dogs are permitted on trails and the beach, on leash. I have a German Shepherd and all our walks turned up ZERO evidence of other dogs; Everyone is conscientious here and picks up.

The cost per night for an RV was $28, a yurt is $43 and a tent is $20. Disabled Veterans with a service related disability are allowed to spend ten days without fee at an Oregon State Park, but no more than five at an individual park.

Great restaurants in town and by the Harbor only a couple miles away in Brookings.

“Gorgeous”

We had a wonderful afternoon here climbing around the beach. We saw starfish and anemone and made a sand castle from the driftwood on the beach.

“One of the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

This has to be one of the best campgrounds around. Sites are large and private and some have beautiful ocean views. About 20 sites also have cable TV hookup, although you don't get the best channels. I have a Winneguard antenna top of my trailer and pulled in about 8 channels clearly without the hookup. The campground sits up on the cliffs but there are many trails leading down to the beach, beautiful lush and green trails. This is the only State campground I have been to that has a small laundry room, very small, but welcome just the same. There are also free hot showers and newspaper stands throughout the park. I was able to get wifi using my Netgear antenna, which strengthens the signal.
If you like being near the ocean and hiking near the ocean this is the place. You are also about only one mile from town for shopping and food.
