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.

We stayed in a cabin and had such a good stay. Location was great. We love Newport and thus resort is very close. We drove to Yachats one of the days we were there and it was raining, but that is definitely a place we want to visit in the sunshine. Comfy and had everything we needed

We had the best time staying here. We rented a cottage; it was so clean, well stocked, all you need is your tooth brush. It was top notch. We only wish we could've stayed longer. Would definitely recommend to friends!

Our cottage was adorable and well stocked in the kitchen, I was a little disappointed in the lack of linens in bathroom and bedroom, but we were prepared for the bedroom because it stated it online. Everything was very clean except there was pet hair. We have pets at home, so it was tolerable but not enjoyable as we didn't... More

We stayed two nights in August and even though we had reservations we were told to find a spot we liked and claim it. No cell reception, TV or wifi at your spot. The so called beach access is a hike through the shrubbery and then a very dangerous dart across Hwy 1 in the fog. Better to drive your... More

This place is terrible, they do not give you the truth when you ask questions. They told us there was a view of the ocean and there is not. They have heavy ground and tree cover so there is no sunshine which is what you go to the beach for. They stuff everyone into little spaces that cannot even accommodate... More

Whaler's Rest is a great location right across the road from the ocean and a few miles south of Newport, Well managed, clean, and many activities. Although the sites are somewhat close together there is a good deal of privacy because of how they are situated and the heavy ground and tree cover. Stay there every September.
