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.

This is a great little state park with some great beach access. I like going here to fly my kite. It has been relatively quiet when I have gone there. Even on a hot memorial day weekend it wasn't too busy. The beach itself is in nice condition and there is a good bit of it to walk on here. Overall I am pleased with this place and will likely be going back in the future.

Location is the best part. Could be manicured and trimmed up a bit. Can be a bit tight if you are very big. We were 39' motorhome and had a snug fit. Power and water but no sewer and closest dump station is 17 miles away so plan ahead. We stayed 4 nights and loved the location.

So here's a place we lucked out on getting September 2017. It's called Beachside, Oregon. As we have found, it's a difficult spot to book. Fortunately, someone cancelled their reservations and we got in! It's a few miles south of Waldport. The campsite is right next to the beach and ocean, so you can see it right from most campsites. If you are staying in a tent, you may hear road traffic as this place is right off the highway. We only heard the ocean waves crashing from our travel trailer. The campground is open March 15 - October 31. They have 32 Electrical sites with Water, no sewer. There are very clean bathrooms with hot showers too. (There is a dump site at South Beach Campsite or in the town of Newport if you need it.) We enjoyed our morning and evening walks on the beach and taking my kite out and flying it. The people staying there were all very friendly and it was pretty quiet for the most part. It's a great place to stay! By the way, if you get a chance, go eat at Bridgewater Fish House and Zebra bar in Florence, Oregon. It's about a 40 minute drive heading south from Beachside. It was the best food we've ever had on the Oregon Coast!
