We left Whalers Rest last week. By far my favorite of four resort camps we've visited in 3 weeks. The sites are a little small like several have noted, but our 28 ft Motorhome didn't have a problem fitting into space. The campground was full of campers but each space is surrounded by scrubs and trees and it felt very... More

Nice sites. Easy access. No WiFi except at the office area. Tv is limited. Good folks. Easy and short drive to Newport. Nice town, nice shops and LOUD sea lions! Good food. Lots to see in the area. Roads in the campground are ok, could use grading.

VERY deceiving, there is NO cell service, & for WiFi you have to sit in the clubhouse. Old, dirty & broken, there was RAW sewage on our site. Reported it 3's we were kicked out for being loud swearing

Paid way too much for such a small space. Did not realize that our space was near the playground. Lots of kids screaming. No wifi unless you go to the clubhouse. If you want a quiet spot to camp do not stay here. Cost $60+ per night. Not worth it.

My favorite of all the Thousand Trails campgrounds. There isn't anything not to like here! Love the indoor pool and hot tub, has cable TV, all full hookups and great staff. Short walk to the beach too!

We stayed in our RV and our family stayed in a cabin. Whalers rest is by far our favorite Thousand Trails. The main reason is because it is a clean and well maintained resort, but there are lots of reasons. The bullet list is: Clean & smooth running Friendly & Helpful staff Great store with 400+ DVDs Activities & BBQs... More

Want to come back again for a longer stay. Rented a cabin and would definitely do it again. Cabin had everything we needed, was clean, and was a great place to just relax. The ocean was within walking distance(about 10 minutes). Park was clean, had activities for the kids, and was quiet to just relax, and get away from it... More

This campground was awesome and should be a example on how all TT parks should look and be run in the PNW. The staff was all very friendly, bathroom was always clean, had hot showers most days. Clubhouse had great internet, and activities at park were fun. Will definitely add this park to our list of favorites and even though... More
