Every summer, my husband's company hosts a beach party at Newport Dunes. We schedule time at several of the beachfront party spots, rent a bunch of the water toys (electric boats, stand up paddleboards, kayaks, etc) and all of the management stays at the resort in RV's. We have a wonderful time every year, the resort really takes great care... More

If you are camping in a tent, avoid this campground like a plague. This is an RV trailer campsite and the tent camping locations are in the middle of all the trailers right by PCH with no views of anything. Very limited paki g spots makes for a very very uncomfortable stay.

We were here on the 4th of July and it was PACKED! There was no space left on the beach because of the throngs of people. There was some good live music at one end of the parking lot and food trucks for your culinary enjoyment. The marina seems kind of old and tired, but they had many events planned... More

This extensive park is very lively, with many people that apparently like this atmosphere. It is suited for families, as it is situated on a bay without surf, so the swimming is safe. It is not at the oceanfront though. The sites in the campground are very (!!!!)small and expensive , and the cheapest ones have noise from the road... More

The Cabins and Cottages need some attention. They are very dated and not in great shape. For the same price, and possibly less, you could stay in a nice hotel at the beach. We were very disappointed all around.Unless you are really crowding in with a bunch of kids this place is absolutely overpriced. Wifi was so weak they ask... More

There are pros and cons to this park. The beach and water are pleasant and there are a number of water activities available including paddle boat rentals.There is a large runoff drain that goes straight into the bay and there would be certain times when the water would not be sanitary for swimming.There is also a large swimming pool with...

The RV Park is in a very nice area and close to stores of your choice. It's nice being on the Bay Side instead of the State Beach. However, airplanes go right over the whole RV Park Daily, which after days you can usually get use to. There are LOTS of barking out of control dogs. Security isn't enforcing any... More

First let me say that this RV park is in a beautiful location! Right on the water with plenty of relaxing things to do on the beach. Canoe/kayak rentals, nice pools, activities, and more. BUT, this is a VERY crowded park. RV slots are extremely tight and spaced very close together. Vehicles park on the street in front of their... More

we stayed in a beachfront cottage. The cottage is rather tired. The blinds are missing slats, the bedroom furniture is beat up. The interior feels like a tired RV. If you stay here, it is closer to camping than staying in a nice hotel. The kitchen is outfitted with dishes and utensils, but you need to bring your own coffee,... More
