We stayed in a studio type cabin at the Whalers Rest RV & Camping Resort. While the cabin was virtually brand new it was a bit small for the two of us and our two small dogs. With that being said it was great for a 3 day weekend in which we did not spend a great deal of time... More

Awesome resort with beautiful sites. Friendly and helpful staff. They are doing major upgrades to make it even better. Can't wait for my next visit. They also make sure that their construction doesn't disrupt your stay in any way. I visited three thousand trail resorts on my vacation and whalers rest out shown them all.

Very helpful staff. Superb manager who really cares about Whaler's Rest. Best wi-fi at Thousand Trails yet. Easy beach access. Space for big rigs and 50 amps. Clean restrooms and nice looking pool. It could be our favorite.

Facility was well run and we had a wonderful time. Staff very helpful, responsive and responsible. Spotty on getting cell phone reception at our site. Wi-Fi only available at clubhouse - minor problems. A very short walk to the beach. Great location - Newport, Depoe Bay and other cities a short distance away.

Great location and well maintained: campsites, adult and family lodges, laundry clean and good machines. Cheerful workers, management. Enjoyed the ice cream social on Saturday and playing ping pong. Even found shorebirds down at the beach, a first. I read the complaint re: pool. It's great for lap swimming and I really appreciate the adult only hours. Not cold if... More

We love Whalers Rest RV Park and stay there every chance we get...in fact we're talking about renting our favorite campsite on an annual basis...so we always get it! We don't generally participate in the activities, although it's fun to read about them. But, we did enjoy a short shopping spree in the gift shop. Excellent stay, one more time!!

The pool will always be cold no matter what. Its been cold for more than 10 years. No one wants to use it. And if your an adult at the hotub the kids will pile in. The kids should not be allowed in there for their own health and others. They use it to urinate in so its over clorinated... More

Great location, large sites, however roads were muddy and potholed.Picnic tables old and rickety. Also cell phone service very weak and wifi non existent. Do enjoy the resort however, and it does have ocean beach access.
