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

We stayed for two nights in an oceanfront site and like this property better than almost anywhere else we have camped. The beach is perfect for kayaking, fishing or beachcombing. I loved being able to slip into my kayak and paddle with the seals less than 10 minutes away in Seal Bay Park. The campsites are close together but you... More

My boyfriend and I just came back from Bates Beach. We went from Aug 23rd to Aug 26th and I have to say it was an AWESOME time! I love Bates Beach and we are for sure going to make this an annual trip. The staff is so friendly, even the other campers are really nice. The view is to... More

We just had a lovely time at the Bates Beach Oceanfront Resort. We stayed in a second floor suite overlooking the beach, with ocean breezes, the sound of the waves and gorgeous scenery over the water. The suite was very clean and comfortable, and we had everything we needed. I even requested a fan before we arrived (based on the... More

There are not enough lines of information to tell about our horrific stay! It started from the get go, when we opened the door to our condo/ sublet rental the inside temperature was stifling!! guess what? No A/C and No fan.There was a bad smell from inside the unit that didn't go away. When we had our first meal we... More
