After having a terrible experience in another RV park close by, we were really lucky to get a spot in this one on short notice! Yes, the campsites are close, but the people you meet and the views you get are fantastic! Nice and clean, friendly people, beach right at your doorstep. I would recommend it for sure.

It's nice there right by the beach and with a gully too for the kids. it has local kids (me included) around to play with nice people and a store there too if you forget anything. Also there is boat rentals and some wildlife and a river. Service is good too

We booked a campsite here last minute in the middle of the week, and the staff was very friendly. There were only a couple of tent sites left available back away from the beach, but we were actually glad to be in one of those sites because they were a bit more secluded with trees behind them. The setting of... More

I have gone to Bates Beach every summer since I was a child. I am now 33 and still going every year as per tradition. It is so beautiful there and the staff are all amazing! I have never had a bad experience going to Bates Beach and the view is something straight out of a movie or book. I... More

THIS REVIEW IS REGARDING THE CAMPSITE ONLY, NOT THE CONDOS. I will begin by saying the staff are wonderful, very friendly and accommodating. This review is for the campsite only. We chose #27, a waterfront site. When we arrived, we initially thought someone had camped in our reserved spot. That was not the case...the site was so small, it just... More

My family recently camped and booked condos at Bates Beach Oceanfront Resort to celebrate a family reunion. Although difficult to find, the location is beautiful, peaceful and right on the ocean. Our condo was spacious and had all of the amenities and provided a lovely view. My entire family really enjoyed their stay with the exception of my mother who... More

My family and I have been coming to Bates Beach for 7 summers now, ever since my son was 2. The kids (him and his cousins) excitedly look forward to this trip every year. We stay in the condos which have a breathtaking 180 degree view. The units are basic, but clean. I've never had an issue with no AC... More

I went camping last year with my boyfriend and our dog. This was actually our Plan B because we had wanted to stay at Miracle Beach Prov. Park, and it was all booked, so we stayed here for 2 and at Miracle for 1. I ended up liking Bates Beach better than Miracle, because Miracle was quite noisy compared, and... More
