Don't miss the fossils
The fossils in the cliffs above the beach and rocks on the beach are fantastic. In addition to the upland features described above, the fossils alone, mainly marine invertebrates, are reason enough for a family field trip here to hold in their hand what many little one's classmates will only ever see in a book.

Stayed at G27. Great site. Torrential rain first night (10/11). Electricity out for couple of hours , but our spirits were high regardless. Not able to take showers due to Covid disappointing. Had to wear mask to use restroom. Say what? Hiked the trail around BBSP. Found one chanterelle.

We are from Idaho, we camp along the Oregon coast every couple of years. Usually we wing it and stay wherever we can get in but this year we decided to make reservations.
We googled best campgrounds on the Oregon coast and decided to camp places we can stay at least 3 days. So this was on the trip. We had a blast. The Oregon coast I'd beautiful, the hiking is phenomenal for all levels. We hiked around the campgrounds in the mornings, hit devil's punchbowl up the road about a mile and a half at low tide for the sea life. Checked out Newport in the afternoons.
The kids had a blast. Of special good time was the Newport Zoo and the aquatic science center. The Newport Zoo was kinda spendy at $10 each but if you want to pet a baby kangaroo, its worth it! I will post photos, you are welcome!

Land of the Troll Trees. Don't skip the nature hike along the South side. The amazing tree trunks are worth the effort to see and many are in the campsites. On-site dump station, clean bathrooms and there is a kids playground. Although it is a very large campground there is a lot of privacy. The beach access sites are premium with full hookups and cable.

This campground was beautiful, but that’s about it for me.
The bathrooms/showers are “open” aka FREEZING. We stayed when it was 50-60 degrees and raining outside and the shower was straight up miserable. It was dark, small and to top it off, the hot water ran out after 5 minutes. I was left with FREEZING cold water on a 40 degree night. Nobody else was taking a shower at the same time, so I am not sure why the sudden lack of hot water came about. Not being from the area, we were depending on our phones to find local trails, shops, things to do, etc etc....well, (if you have Verizon) good luck, our phones were at “no service” the entire time. Luckily we were able to drive into town for service so we could check out a few local places since it poured our entire trip. The beautiful surroundings and campground almost make up for the not-so-awesome stay we had here.

Big, But Pretty
Large park just a short drive from the beach. Check-in instructions were confusing. Easy to get lost on all the loops. Lots of big trees and bushes for privacy. If you use the showers in the colder months, beware. Shower rooms are NOT heated. Rainy and stormy while we were there, but the trees break up any strong winds. Not too busy in mid-March. Just had an elec/water site.

Arrived during night and couldn't see much. Just the next morning we saw how beautiful this place is. Creek behind the site, nearby beach and a wonderful forest. Would I go there again? Definitely

Very nice park, small sites, best to visit in the off season Oct-Apr when not as crowded. Park does not set on beach but has easy access
