Very disappointed! $414 for three nights. The site was so tiny and so close to neighbor, bikes and people blocking streets while partying at night, saw the security drive by and do nothing. Tried to use hot tub, so many teenagers at night, we never used it. We did go to Back Bay bistro, very nice, beautifull view, had to... More

My family loves coming here to use the sandy beaches. It is safe, the lagoon is waveless and it's great for small families. They have security and lifeguards. They show movies on the beach. The staff are friendly and aim to please. Great Waterfront Restaurant "Back Bay Bistro" to enjoy. Water Park and rentals!

Spent the week with my children and grandchildren. This is our third year coming here with our grandchildren. We used to come many years ago when our kids were little. We now get a spot right in front so we can see the water and see our grandchildren play. We love it here. It is great for relaxing and for... More

What has happened to Newport Dunes, it is noisy, dirty, expensive and anything goes at this once beautiful RV Park??? We have stayed at Newport Dunes for many years and have slowly watched it deteriorate! Sure it's Newport Beach and it will be expensive but the only place to stay is on the Back Bay at very expensive rates(over $200... More

Have been coming here for the past 9 years. Always stay on the front row. Beach has always welcomed guest only. Day use folk stay on the day use side....not this trip. Seems like the Dunes does not care. People with dogs on the beach.... party tables everywhere, bbqs ....big mess. Told security...they did not care. No place for the... More

The first time I drove through the campsites, I thought who in their right mind would want to be 'Camping' in a 25' by 40' site in the middle of Newport Beach. The campsites have 50 amp service, water and sewage, i.e. the basics. This was not what I had grown up with, Park the RV, setup the E-Z up,... More

If you are looking for an excellent family getaway look no further than Newport Dunes!! You are surrounded by the amazing Southern California Playground. But, there is enough to do right in the Back Bay that you don't really ever have to leave. Very clean swimming pool!! Game room for the kids. All kinds of water toys to rent. The... More

Newport Dunes has all the makings of a great beachside campground with its own pool, beach, and hook-ups; then once you enter the park the sparkle you once saw from PCH begins to dull... After staying here there are a few helpful tips I would like to provide: 1. Quiet hours are posted as 10:00pm-6:00am but you will have guests... More

People say it's the best place to stay in Newport because it's the only place to stay. Very nice park but they know they are the only place around so they charge big money because they know they will get it. They have a 10pm quite time but their security does not know how to I force anything they are... More
