While touring the park we met the park ranger who was professional and friendly. He gave us plenty of information about the area and updated us on the activities during our stay in Waldport. Made for a great morning experience.

Very nice campground, restrooms and shower house are nice, very close to the surf. Wood chips in all tent sites keep you out of the dirt,.

This is a wonderful spot to explore, relax, enjoy the quiet or just do nothing at all. We loved it here.

Beachside is immediately on the beach with easy access to the water. Smaller campground which made it the perfect environment for young children. Lovey treed sites.Curiously, one of the sites is the most requested of all the Oregon state parks.
