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

Weather is always perfect for camping with friends. Waterfront board walk for walking, pet friendly & bike trail too boot. Close to Balboa Island and not far from Newport pier. You can rent kayaks and paddle wheels. Wave boards.

We have a 6-year-old only child, which has far more energy than the 2 of us, so it takes a lot of diversity to keep her busy and happy while not killing us at the same time. This place had all the answers! 1. The place is pricey, but location is phenomenal so if you want more than just camping,... More

My wife and I stayed here with my grandson in October. We both felt that the park was very expensive and overated for what we got. The sites were very tight and each one was fenced with chain link fencing. I would have expected concrete or blacktop sites but instead, all they had was dirt. There were no waterfront activities...
