  • The location and facilities are just fine. We only stayed one night so take this with a grain of salt but people were pretty noisy here. And one group left their poor dog in the RV for several hours. ...  read more »
  • As we traveled north, we stopped at Nehalem Bay State Park for lunch. It is a bit off the 101, but a restful place for lunch. Nice views of the bay on the way out. 
  • Wifey and myself took our 23ft trailer to this park from seattle for a week of camping and rest. Campsites provided are very easy to back in to, and the park is very clean and quiet. Lots of spaces fo...  read more »
  • We stayed in A6 which is right next to a playground and the showers/bathrooms. The ocean is about a 5-7 minute walk through some grassy dunes, the bay is about a 15 minute walk. "Downtown" Manzanita is only a 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk, where there are a few very nice restaurants and shops. We really love coming here with the whole family and taking advantage of all the wonderful things to do. The bad: The fire pits in many of the sites are comically large, making it difficult to cook over them without using a ton of wood. Some of the sites are not protected from the wind, so be prepared to bear that burden. The wind can also wreak havoc on the beach so if you'd like to lounge there you should bring a wind/sun shade along.
  • Very nice place, but very tight... all spaces very close together with no real cover between them, so privacy is not a feature here! Still, it has great beach access, was nice and clean, well maintained. Water and power only at the sites, but a good dump station near the exit.
  • Quality campsites that all have power and are close to areas for waste disposal. Bathrooms and showers were decent for a campground, and the beach access is very close to where we stayed. The walk to the beach is a little bit uphill from the campsites, but is absolutely beautiful once you get there. Great place that I plan on visiting again.
  • Campground is quiet and fairly protected from the wind. The price is okay and includes water and power. The dump is free. Very pretty walk along a long beach. Good clean fresh air and an incredible coast line. There are other easy trail, to walk on, as well. Good for a couple of days or more.
  • Sites are somewhat tight for larger RVs, but doable. Big-time family campground in summer, it felt at times like staying at a daycare. Didn't bother us, but some might feel Proximity to shoreline was nice, and we loved the quaint beach town of Manzanita. Well worth a visit.
