COOP 8 - Best yurt we stayed in during our long trip around WA & OR (cheapest too!). This yurt is located at the end, away from the others. More private. Awesome beach a short walk away. Sites are not as close to the beach as Cape Lookout or Tillicum though. Washrooms/showers were not so close to our yurt either,... More

This campground has over 200 sites; it's a great place to camp if you rarely need to get rid of garbage and don't need to use the dump station. The campsites don't have much privacy and some sites have very little shade. Pad sizes vary and some were situated so that it was difficult to back in a trailer even... More

Our church has their annual family camp here each August. We enjoyed the campsites with water and electrical outlets. Bathrooms were clean. Loved the paved walkways/bike trails. Easy ride to the aquarium.

We stayed here for my husbands annual family camping trip. Our group of 35+ rented 7 spaces, there was a combination of trailers w/full hook-ups, tents and yurts. I stayed in a yurt w/ my family of 5. The yurts were nice size and were comfortable for a double bunk style bed and a futon, just bring extra sleeping bags... More

We stayed in 5 different campgrounds on our coast all RV trip through WA and OR and this was our favourite. It is utterly huge and little privacy between sites but its still really beautiful and connected to nature. Everyone we met was very friendly and respectful. Good kids programming and several access points to huge beach and some dunes.... More

Lovely campground. Amazing food nearby, try Rogue Brewery! Campground facilities were very nice and modern. Lots of space between camp sites. Only issue, don't stay here during a storm! The place floods like crazy, we had to abandon our tent at 4am, as did many other's. I think it was built over a marshland.

This beach was easily accessible. It was HUGE! We all had fun looking for sand dollars, sea shells, sand crabs, and even an occasional jelly fish on shore. Watching the surfers was great fun for us Midwestern folks. There is even an area of the beach where horses are allowed. We LOVE this beach!
