We stayed at this campground last minute without much research. We were very surprised to find a beautiful beach and several hikes. Were also surprised with how good the facilities were.
If you are anywhere near this park, it's worth a night or two. The beach is a short walk from either campground loop. The path to the beach is not level or paved and there are some parts that are rocky.
The smaller campground had our preferred bathroom setup with private showers with locking doors. The bathrooms and showers were very clean and adequately stocked.
The ranger who checked in on us was very friendly and informative about things to do in the area.
We saw lots of kids and dogs on the beach so you could spend a week here if you like beach activities. The water was a bit on the cold side though.
There are two sections to the campground a smaller circle nearer to highway 101 and a bigger set of loops closer to the beach. We stayed at the smaller circle and it felt more quiet and peaceful.
The bigger set of loops seems to attract bigger groups and the noise associated with it. It wasn't a party atmosphere but it was definitely louder.
Although the campground is near highway 101 we didn't notice too much noise, and little inside our campervan.
The inside sites on the smaller campground loop gave good access to the grassy middle area. This allowed us to put Starlink in a good location.
We loved the showers here. They were private rooms with locking doors. They were also free with good volume and temperature. With 4 showers available we never waited to use one.
The bathrooms were pretty standard, nothing fancy. They were well kept and clean.
We did not use the dump station at this park.
Having access to hookups allowed us to fill our water tank at the campsite. We also took the opportunity to charge our batteries to 100%.
There were many RV of all types here including a few big class A rigs.
The beach is probably the main attraction at this park. It's a short walk from the campground. We loved sitting on the beach watching the waves roll in.
There is a decent hike up Humbug Mountain but we didn't save enough time to hike it. I believe it was about 3 miles round trip.
The area has a lot of attractions outside the park and this campground would make a good home base for exploring them.
The Oregon Coast Trail is nearby for more hiking with great coastal views.
The Umpaqua Lighthouse State Park is nearby and you can tour the lighthouse. We stopped here on our way up the coast.
Another stop we made on our way north was to the Cape Blanco lighthouse. We learned about the lighthouse and then walked along the coast. There were some great rock formations and we spotted some rare (to us) birds.
We used Google Maps as we traveled up highway 101 and stopped wherever there was a point of interest.
