Waldport - Beachside State Recreation Site

5960 SW Pacific Coast Hwy

A few miles south of Waldport and north of Yachats on the central coast, this small, exquisite destination campground is right alongside miles of broad, sandy beach that makes the park perfect for kite flying and whale watching. Every campsite is mere seconds from the beach, which makes the park perfect for watching storms and sunsets.

Beachside is an excellent mid-point stop as you take a jaunt on the coast. Within 30 miles in either direction, you'll find visitor centers, tide pools, hiking and driving tours, three lighthouses, crabbing, clamming, fishing, aquarium and science centers.

I did not Camp here. I use the day use area only. The rest rooms were clean. It is an easy walk up onto the beach. The day area is very nice. The beach is excellent.

Super cold and rainy, showers are warm, bathrooms are not. Park is clean and the ocean can be heard from the campsite. #9 was perfect. Just don't expect perfect weather in March

Our absolute favorite place to stay on that part of the coast. Literally beach side, just steps from your campsite to the sand. So close to the beach, they have to close in the winter because of storms. Always friendly and helpful camp hosts, clean sites and facilities, can't ask for anything more.

My family and friends loved it here! It was very clean and well maintained! The bathrooms were great, clean and kept up. Park Rangers made themselves visible and helpful when needed. A few minutes walk and you are instantly on the beach! Would love it even more if it were not right next to busy hwy. Very noisy. Thankfully quiet(er) at night. We will definitely make it make it back!!
