“A yurt with a newer futon mattress make for a much comfier night”

I stayed one night in a pet-friendly yurt (with no pet). It had a slight mildew odor, otherwise it was a 5 star stay for the money. This was due to the back end of the yurt facing thick trees and brush, which shaded the back of the yurt and prevent it dying out properly in the wet season. It also gave you a window that you could open without staring into someone else's camp site.

The floor was some kind of poured slab, obviously easier to clean than some of the non-pet yurt floors. The heater worked well, the yurt had standard lighting, bunks, futon and table with chairs. The mattress on the futon seemed nearly new, and I actually slept quite comfortably on it. The site had two picnic tables, one next to the fire pit and one on the elevated deck attached to the yurt. There were at least two wall sockets in the yurt to plug in your whatevers, one on each end of the yurt. First yurt I've stayed in with more than one place to plug in your stuff.I slept so soundly on the futon that I barely got checked out on time the next day.

This park has a large camping section with a variety of camp sites and also pay to use sites with yurts. We were here for the day use area which was beach access. Interesting views from the beach area, and a nice sandy beach. This was the most crowded beach area we came across, though that was not a huge crowd. Just more obvious that larger groups were set up for the day and less drive in and take a stroll people.

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.
