I lost my credit card and somebody turned it in, and the Rangers made sure I got it back. What a relief! We enjoyed everything about Whalers Rest and Newport and look forward to going back again. Staff are all excellent. One of the best in the Thousand Trails system.

stayed in a little cabin, super cute!! Had a fire pit, which the rest of the state banned fires due to high dangers of fire season, but on the beach? OH YA!! Also a BBQ came with the cabin, which was great since every restaurant we ate at was awful, we bbq'd some deliciousness- did i mention the beach??

Everyone there is very friendly, its very clean and well kept. I do agree that a crosswalk would be nice to get across the highway. Lots of activities to do alone or with other people. Having the beach so close is definitely a pro.

I really like this location, the sites are nice and big, we travel with a cat and he likes the privacy. One thing that was GREAT, they have recently added digital TV to the sites. 4 days for $12, I didn't mind paying that at all. The beach access is excellent, a short walk and you're there. The Newport area... More

Loved it, it was clean and the coast was beautiful. one thing I would like to see get done is a cross walk to go across the HWY to get to the beach. A flashing yellow light would be very helpful too. It was very scary crossing the hwy to the beach

Indicating somehow at check-in that there is little to zero cell phone reception anywhere in the park would be very good to know. In our case, the staff was very helpful allowing me to use a landline to call RV tech support but the lack of cell phone reception was a detriment to our experience.

There were plenty of sites for large RV;s with full hook-ups.The pads were mostly concrete but the roads were gravel and some were fairly steep inclines. The dust was minimal though as most people obeyed the 5 MPH posted speed. All in all a great RV park.

This was the only place I could find a tent camping spot open! All the parks were full, except this one--- which makes you wonder!! But we found the grounds very well kept, clean and quite pretty. The sites had plenty of tree cover, and clean restrooms in the area. Pretty spendy for a tent site- but it wasn't dissapointing... More

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.
