After our visit in August I sent a review and received a very nice reply from management that they were working on fixing the "dog problem". If by allowing it to get worse you are fixing it, then they have succeeded. The number 1 rule on the rule flyer given to each camper states," No pets on the beach, lawns... More

Thank you for your review. The 1000 block beach sites have the fences you have seen. We do plan to extend fences to more areas in our RV Resort. Our security staff is going to focus on patrols when dogs frequent those grass areas. Please call me at 949 999 3103 when you would like to book again. I will... More

I've heard a lot of good things about this place! Not sure why... They must have stayed inside their RV their whole trip because it's pretty basic to any other RV park. They have a pool and a beach... Everything else costs an arm and a leg, i'm surprised accessing the beach and pool area isn't 35$ an hour like... More

You can't tell a book by the cover and you can't rely on first impressions from the outside here either. You would ever know, for example, that the 3 pages of hard and fast rules you get at checking are just not enforced. You would not believe that the required codes on restroom doors just don't work. You would not... More

I booked a campsite here several weeks prior to staying for the weekend for my daughter's birthday. My first impression of the reservation agent was not that great considering he sounded like I was "bothering" him (sounded like a punk kid in his late teens). This staff member proceeded to give me the summer rate when I had given him... More

This was my first time coming here and I was really excited. We stayed five days which the price wasn't too bad $115 a night we were only three rows from the water and it had a really nice view. The staff was really nice and accommodating and the grounds were well kept for the most part. We arrive Thursday... More

Thank y for your review. This weekend was not normal for Newport Dunes Resort. The county closed the lagoon due to a raw sewer spillage that occurred in Costa Mesa and was beyond our control. We had been in close communication with OC Health and Water Quality Department for updates during the closure. The lagoon is tested daily and whenever... More

Returned to the beachfront site for our yearly RV trip. Had a great time. They have installed a small picket fence around the north end beachfront sites and I think they are great!. Unfortunately, we stayed at the sites without the fence and consistently had to watch people bring their dogs onto our site to poop. It is hard to... More

The resort is very fee driven. Off Season costs $150/night. On Season is in the $300/night. There is a fee for dogs, guest parking, etc. The nightly costs are similar to an expensive hotel, even in Southern California. For this, you would expect some basics such as a large enough pipe to support internet service. 1MB download, no upload capability.... More
