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

Yes, I'm actually reviewing here at the park. With all the park's amenities, which includes a convenience store, clubhouse where you can rent golf carts and gazebos, swimming pool, a laundromat, and the cleanest showers and restrooms I've ever used in an outdoor facility Stayed in a super beach front site (11011) right on the beach and it was a...

I spent many summers here during my childhood. My family and I would stay in tents and go to the beach every day. Get such a feeling of nostalgia thinking about the numerous vacations spent here. Skateboarding, biking to the arcade, scootering to the entertainment room or pool. It's really a great place to create lasting memories with your family.... More

We camped here in January. I will list the positives first. It was easy to find and in a very good area, close to restraurants and malls. It is dog friendly and quiet. The negatives: Your camping on a dirt lot. The camp spaces are very small and fenced in. Internet and TV is ok. I would not consider this... More

We stayed at Newport Dunes with our RV in Sept. We had a problem with our rig and the management was so accommodating. We ended up getting there a day late. We had prepaid and they waived that night. They were so so nice overall. Traveller tip. They have a guy making breakfast burritos in front of the general store.... More
