Port of Newport RV and Marina, Newport OR

Port of Newport RV Park and Marina
Newport, OR

As the name of the park would suggest, this is a RV park adjacent to the marina. The majority of the park is a ocean of asphalt which keeps things clean, but loses a few points for aesthetics. There are some grassy areas, but all were brown and the stickers in the grass were taking over. There is a Rouge Brewery right next door and a tasting room. It is also the location where a lot of their beverages are made, so you get some industrial noises throughout the day. The tasting room was open with a few regulations for Covid, but at least they were still serving. We did visit the tasting room one afternoon and sampled some of their craft beers.

The RV park is on a bay so no real ocean noises from where we were, but a few larger ships could be seen going up and down the bay. We walked down the entrance road that the park was on down to the bay front one day. At the end of the road was a large administrative building for NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). Anchored in front of the building was a rather large impressive ship. Apparently NOAA has about 6 of these ships stationed around the Country. This ships home port was Hawaii.

The RV park has 143 sites, but the common theme for all of them is that they are really close together. In order to fit our 40' Bus into the site among the shrubs I had to angle in to get back far enough to not have too much of the RV sticking into the road. As it was a camp host came by a put a orange cone by the front of the RV. Then with the Jeep pulled in next to the rig the available outside space was pretty tiny. I set chairs up behind the Jeep in the area that was left, but at least the Jeep was a bit of a wind break. Even at the end of August the wind off of the bay was often very cool, and a long pants and sweat jacket were normal outside requirements. The heated floors in the rig were on every night along with the fireplace.

We paid $60 night for the site, which seemed steep for the lack amenities, but average for a coastal park. Our site #42 was an end site, so at least we didn't have a neighbor on the patio side, but it didn't make the site any bigger. Our T-Mobile worked OK here, and the restrooms were Handicapped accessible but they could have used more for a park of this size. Cable TV was available, and park Wifi as well, but it wasn't very reliable (according to the staff).

The check in process was inside the office, but Plexiglas separated you from the staff. The staff was friendly and helpful and did a good job keeping the park clean. Many of the sites in the park appeared to be long term or seasonal residents. You are close to the downtown area of Newport.

Thanks for the write up! We stayed nearly about the same time at Pacific Shores Motorcoach Resort. It was a really nice park with their own access to the beach and great views of the lighthouse. However, it is not as convenient to downtown Newport.
