  • I was surprised when we visited last week. It is an almost 500 acre park with a beach! The beach is excellent in my opinion. The beach goes on and on from what we saw. There are yurts available for so...  more »

  • Took my dog here. His first time to the ocean. We were staying at the Motel 6 and wanted to go somewhere close. It was cold and breezy but a lot of fun. My dog went crazy after seeing that much water. The only downside were the mosquitoes along the path through the trees and bushes. Once we got to the ocean, they disappeared.
  • Beautiful area, close access to the beach and dunes. While camping there it does not feel like you're in Newport, but you are so makes things super convenient. There's a restaurant on the bay front (can't remember the name but its a two story blue building with a gorgeous view overlooking the sea lions, GET THE BISON BURGER MEDIUM RARE! Best burger I've ever had and they have a super friendly helpful staff.
  • Camping near the beach. It's about a ten minute walk from the campground to the beach. The sites are fairly large but not private. The bathrooms are clean and showers are provided at no extra charge.
  • Great place to camp when in the Newport area. Lots of bike riding. Can bike from there to Hatfield Marine Science Ctr. and Marina. Lot of mosquitos in June!
  • Very clean well kept park, close walking distant to the beach and only about a 2 mile walk to downtown. The local Rogue brewery is also within walking distance which was another plus

Where to stay in Newport

In Newport, the majority of the lodgings are inside old, renovated grand Victorians near the coast or cottages close to the beach. If you're interested in accommodations on the water (cove, bay, or beach), look into the city's inns. The Yaquina Bay area provides excellent views and access to the nearby national park of the same name, while a few economy accommodations are located in the town center.
