Three days on the beach. A little rain, a bit of sun, campfire, sunsets are heavenly. The campground is clean, guests are friendly, and the camp hosts are grand. There is some highway noise in the campsites closer to the roadway, but you cannot beat...More

What an amazing campground, right on the beach. Washrooms and hot water showers which are lovely when tenting!! U can buy wood for campfires. Close to Newport and Yachats which offer cute funky stores and lovely restaurants.
