  • The campground was almost full upon our arrival on Thursday afternoon. This is apparently a very popular state park but we didn’t like it because the sites we have passed and the one we occupied offer...  more »
  • Three loops, well maintained sites, friendly/helpful rangers, lots of trees, backs up to dunes, beach access, fire rings and wood for sale. 
  • I stayed with my friend for one night and it was wonderful. The beach is a short walk away from every site. The sites are large and the bathrooms were clean and the showers were warm! All around a won...  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.
  • Great access to the beach. Each campground has power and water at the site. Good clean restrooms and free showers
  • Fabulos spacious campgrounds with 110VAC and water to each campsite. Easily recharge your Electric Car overnight and start each day of adventure with a full tank.
  • 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.
