Oregon on the beach? Really

First time trip to the NW, we are looking for an rv site for 39' that is really ocean font, beach sde, whatever the correct wording is. Would like to see the water and hear the waves... Is this a dream? Being from Arkansas i jyst want to be there, do not want to have to drive to a beach..... Oh are currently on our way, in Idaho, so this is kinda urgent. I have surfed the net looking, but really need some suggestions...... Thank you all...

We did a trip down the Oregon Coast in late May. We used both State Parks and commercial CGs. There aren't very many that you can sit in your rig and see the beach, but there are some where you can hear the waves and getting to them is just a short stroll.

We stayed at Beverly Beach SP a couple of nights. It's a few miles north of Newport. Hwy 101 runs right past the entrance, but is between the park and the beach. Beach access from the park is a walk under the highway, and if you get a site close to the entrance it's not a long walk.

Harris Beach SP, north of Brookings, is another one that's close to the beach, but it's on the cliff top. The sites with an actual view of the ocean are not full hook-ups but again, it's a stroll down to the beach (and quite a climb back up again) if you get a site near the entrance. One caution - the camp's roads aren't very wide and some of the sites are hard to get into, even with our 32-footer.

The commercial CGs we stayed at were close to other things we wanted to visit (like the Tillamook Air Museum) not the beach. We've also stayed at a Good Sam CG north of Florence that was a 5 minute walk to the beach.

The Oregon State parks web-site has maps that are quite informative.

Check out Sea Perch down by Yachats. Home - Sea Perch RV Resort - oregon rv park,oregon rv resort,oregon coast vacation rentals,oregon coast vacation home,northwest rv park,Central Oregon Coast,oceanfront rentals,oceanfront lodging

The Oregon ocean front lots are extremely expensive and cannot support a campground. There used to be several up and down the coast that were actual ocean beach front but they are mostly condos now. As another poster reported, there are several that are just a few minutes walk to the beach but you cannot see and hear the surf in most of them.

Be sure to make reservations along the Oregon coast. The RV parks fill up fast during the summer.

The Sea and Sand RV Resort is right on the beach between Lincoln City and Depoe Bay. Also, the Sea Perch RV resort is on the beach between Florence and Waldport. Both will fit what you are looking for.

We have stayed at all three of these resorts. Sea and Sand near Lincoln City has very nice ocean spaces, I don't recall how big they are and the ocean side ones are always in high demand.

Sea and Sand RV Park on The Oregon Coast

This State park near Newport is great especially if traveling with young kids. Space sizes vary so check and see.

Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department: South Beach State Park

Premier in Lincoln City is very nice, although it is across the highway from the beach, but an easy walk and IIRC, some sites have a good view.

You most likely will not get into any state park on the beach if you haven't reserved a spot. You are better off searching the private rv parks. There is one up in Rock Away Beach called Shorewood (www.shorewoodrvpark.com ), very nice people and seemed very quiet. The water front lots are close together but what a view from your front window.

Also about the halfway point is Seal Rock ( Seal Rocks RV Cove in Seal Rock on the Oregon coast: a full service RV park open year-round ), this one is actually across the highway from the beach, but what amazing views of the ocean. You can still hear the waves.

In Waldport there is a KOA right above Alsea Bay, not much for any waves crashing, it is quite calm where it is situated, but a wonderful view of the harbor, fisherman, and even the odd sea lion, oh and the bridge (hwy 101) that crosses over the bay into Waldport at night is amazing.

Good luck!!

Check out Cape Kiwanda RV park in Pacific City. A very nice park right across the street from a beautiful long stretch of beach.

Another vote for Cape Kiwanda - Beautiful beach, nice brewpub/restaurant across the street next to the beach parking lot/access. This is the beach the fishing dories launch off of - very gentle slope, very pretty, but a nasty rip current.
