Maybe this is after the fact ( we just joined the app) but there are lots of beach front RV parks on the Oregon coast.
Check out Yachats, pricey but literally on the ocean. Manzanita/ Nehalem, Bandon, lots more options via Google maps.
We particularly enjoyed Manzanita, although you'd need to find a spot in Nehalem and it's several miles away but worth it.

Camp Wi-Ne-Ma

If you don't have pets, a hidden treasure is Camp Wi-Ne-Ma between Lincoln City and Pacific City along US-101. It is right on the beach and is $25 per night.

Smile I might just move to Oregon

I might just move to Oregon.... It is wonderful.

Two nights at Ainsworth SP
Ft Stevens SP for 3 nights
Cape Lookout SP 3 nughts
Then Pacific Shores in Newport (our splurge) 4 nights OCEAN VIEW from a bluff,
But nothing between us and the Ocean... Right beside the lighthouse too!
Then Umpqua SP 2 nightsin Winchester Bay
Then Bullard Beach SP at Bandon 3 nights
Then Brookings Rv for 5 nights


DH is retired and a DAV, so we have an Access pass, at Ainsworth the ranger gave us 2 free FHU nights and told us to apply for The Oregon Access pass, He said it takes 30 days but we can get reimbursed for the nights we already paid for. The OR Access allows up yo 10 nights a month free.
Unbelievable.....

All if these nights were booked after July 8th..... Most are not ocean front, but after being here, i see that most are not... BUT I love the friendliness of the locals. GREAT state..... Thanks all.

Beachside State Park is the only state park with sites right on the beach I think. Stay away from the sites by the hiway.KOA Waldport is "kinda" on the Ocean, really on an inlet (Alsea Bay) and is a steep climb down to the bay. We just went thru there and it was a wall of ocean cloud/fog and very cool (55).Florence was hotter and no cloud and only a few miles south.

Thanks to all who responded...

The Thousand Trails at Pacific City is pretty nice. You can hear and see the ocean and it's a short walk to the beach, depending on where your site is. You can do horse rides on the beach at Pacific City which is a lot of fun.

We're camping at an RV park on the Washington coast at the moment. The constant waves are really loud but you can't see the water. It's 1,000 to 2,000 ft. to walk out to the ocean and is a bit disappointing to me.

If you are on the coast, I would definitely try to find a place where you can see the ocean and it's not too far to walk to it. Keep in mind that sometimes the weather can change quickly and it can get foggy, misty and cold in no time. That happened to us a couple of days ago here. We walked out to the water in the dense fog and heavy mist. When we looked back, it was a total white-out and you could not see land or any markers. A bit spooky but following our footsteps back was no problem. That's when you sure hope there isn't a tsunami warning...

I'd take some rubber boots and light rain jackets.

Linda and I enjoy the Oregon Coast. We stay mostly at Thousand Trails and Encore Resorts. This was our 3rd summer up North. After the Albany FMCA Rally we headed home. deSanford

The cool weather was nice

Arkansas us hot in the summer, so we appreciated the cool.... We spent a total of a month on the OR coast and did not have a single prior reservation. Glad we did it that way so we could move if we did not love a spot. Turned out they were all ok spots.... One thing i particularly liked was that the beaches are all public.... AND they were all VERY dog friendly.

Also if you are DAV like hubby us, you can apply for the OR card and stay 10 nights a month free..... That is FHU, too.... Impressive. Ought to be in all states... Were told about ut our first night in the state at Ainsworth SP by a very helpful ranger...
