Great place to camp! The pathways are great for bike rides and very close to the beach. We ride out to the jetty. RV area is water and electric with a dump station on site. There's a store and the campground is very clean.

Oregon beaches are so different than those on the East Coast. They are wild, free and unencumbered. No fancy boardwalks or amusement parks and shops and restaurants...just miles and miles of sand, dunes and blue waters! In the background you can often find evergreen forests...More
