Fort Stevens State Park

Many people don’t know this, but Fort Stevens State Park is one of the nation’s largest public campgrounds! The state park is the site of a former military installation that used to provide security at the mouth of the Columbia River near Astoria. This fort was in service for over 80 years, from the Civil War through WWII.

Today this former military fort is now a 4300-acre park that is full of opportunities for adventure. Here you can camp, beach comb, swim, fish or boat on the freshwater lake, go hiking and even see a historic shipwreck or visit the museum! You’ll find play areas, a disc golf course and plenty of space for a picnic.

When it comes to camping this park has a lot to offer:

  • Year-round camping

Astoria/Warrenton/Seaside KOA

If you are looking for a quiet campground, you may want to avoid the Astoria/Warrenton/Seaside KOA. If you have kids with you though, they are going to LOVE this campground. There are two pools (the indoor pool is open year-round), a game room that offers games of all kinds such as pool, foosball, ping pong, and more, theme weekends, and organized games, and crafts! This campground features a mini golf course, playgrounds, a jumping pillow, and lots more fun family-friendly activities.

Located near many Oregon Coast hotspots you will find plenty of stuff to do near by such as kite flying, whale watching, bike riding, clam digging, beachcombing, or visiting nearby Fort Stevens State Park and learning a lot of interesting military history.

Several of the campsites here are ADA accessible.

Thousand Trails Pacific City

My husband and I have a Thousand Trails membership and we absolutely love it! One of my favorite TT campsites on the Oregon Coast is Thousand Trails Pacific City. Some of my favorite things about TT campgrounds is that they always have clean bathrooms and laundry facilities. As silly as it seems, I love being able to do laundry while camping. It prevents me from having to do A LOT of it when we get back home! The laundry rooms here typically have TVs, free wifi access, coffee, and sitting areas too so you won’t find yourself too bored waiting for your clothes.

This particular Thousand Trails has a few tent-only sites available, RV sites, Yurts, and Cabins available. Many of their sites offer great views. There is an indoor swimming pool that is available year round, a great playground, a dog park and more! There is a great gazebo located here that has a beautiful view of the pacific ocean. It’s the perfect spot for a nice dinner with your family.

This campground is located just down the road from Pacific City and the famous Pelican Restaurant and Cape Kiwanda area (the one with the giant sand dune!). It is directly across the street from McPhillips Beach which happens to be one of our favorite beaches in all of Oregon.

Beverly Beach State Park

I have friends that will literally only camp at Beverly Beach State Park. They claim it’s one of the best rv campgrounds in all of the state. Whether that is true or not, I’ll let you decide, but I fully acknowledge that I think it’s amazing. This campground is located between Yaquina Head and Cape Foulweather and is one of the state’s largest campgrounds.

For activities, while camping here, you can find plenty of opportunities for whale watching, tidepool exploration, visiting the aquarium and many unique shops in Newport, and more.

Thousand Trails South Jetty Campground

If you are wanting to camp in Florence, you have got to check out the Thousand Trails South Jetty. I already mentioned that we are TT members and we love this campground! It might be our favorite in Oregon. The location is great! It’s located within a mile drive of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, so if off-roading at the sand dunes is your thing, you will love that aspect. Next door, you will find Sandland Adventures which offers go-cart racing, a giant dune buggy tour, bumper boats, a mini-golf course, and more (we always take the kids here when we go)! It’s just a really, really great location in my opinion.

The full hook ups here are great, as are their more primitive “tent sites.” There is an outdoor pool that is a ton of fun during the summer months, a game room, and even a basketball court. Each site has good space, fire rings, and picnic tables. Although there are quite a few wide-open spaces, we are always able to snag a space with lots of privacy, which we love.

Florence is also home to quite a few freshwater lakes, so whether you have a fishing boat or a ski boat, be sure and bring it with you because a boat ramp is sure to be available nearby!

Sunset Bay State Park

Sunset Bay State Park is located in Coos Bay and is surrounded by some of Oregon’s most beautiful beaches and sea cliffs. The views you can find just a short walk from the campground are simply stunning.

Here you will find plenty of hiking opportunities, wildflower viewing, a nearby public golf course, and lots of opportunities for fishing, crabbing, and clamming!

Here is what you can expect at the Sunset Bay State Park campground:
