“Big Park and Big Spaces”

South Beach State Park
Ranked #11 of 52 things to do in Newport
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 August 2017

This park is located very close to Newport, Oregon. Lots to do in the area including museums and aquariums. Just a couple minutes walk from your RV site to the beach which is huge and sandy. Lots of paved paths and you could bike to the South Jetty and to Woldport without riding Hwy 101. Lots of room between RV sites. Plenty of room for kids to play. Showers and bathrooms are great. You can rent beach bikes here if you did not bring your own.

Some of the volunteer staff is rude and should be replaced but the State Park staff is awesome.

The huge dunes provide an almost complete break from the coastal winds. Great camping here.

Best part of this campground is proximity to a beautiful beach (and warm showers). It was kept clean throughout our stay despite being nearly full. Another plus is that it is very close to the cute town of Nye Beach. Downside is the sites are very close to one another.

We have stayed here 7 times since 2008 and love it equally each stay. The campground is large but well maintained with excellent rangers and hosts. A small welcome center with a host and info and free coffee welcomes you. Firewood and icecream for sale. Campground has great trail system to beach which is amazing for long walks. 1 mile from downtown port area of Newport. We love it here as it is central to everything the area has to offer.

Beautiful campground with clean bathrooms and nice showers close to the beach. We had a nice spot, quiet, with electric and water hook ups. Definitely recommend. Only thing was there were 3 signs indicating the campground was full when there were quite a few spaces left.

I utilized the $6 hiker biker sites recently and found them conveniently located to the park entrance, bathrooms, visitor center (which has complimentary coffee and sells ice cream bars as well as books and other items) and the beach. Aside from having my bike's dynamo tail light stolen, I had a really nice visit. The ranger did collect an absurd amount of info upon check in which surprised me but she was also really helpful with pointing out bathroom locations and such. I'd stay here again.
