“Nice small county campground”

Overall Rating

This is a small county campground that is very quiet except for an occasional log truck passing on nearby Hwy 47. The park is bordered by Hwy 47 on one side and the Nehalem River on the other. The park has 10 full service sites and the remaining sites are water and electric. All sites are paved with a fire pit and picnic table. The restrooms are nice, clean and heated. We had a 33 foot travel trailer and there is a least one tight turn that takes some careful maneuvering to avoid several large trees.

There are some pull through sites however they accommodate at least two campers, great if camping with another camping partner. There is a small boat ramp but only for launching very small boats or kayaks. Limited river access and river is low and slow in this area most of the time, fall and winter the river floods due to heavy rain.

Park is covered with trees and shade, large grassy area for playing outdoor games. Small little playground, horseshoe and day use area also. Nice place for kids on bikes within park as very little car traffic and easy to see kids in the park. Park host on site, firewood available for purchase.

It is about 7 miles from Vernonia Oregon, nice little town. In town is Vernonia Lake, nice lake for fishing for trout and warm water fish. Lake has a boat ramp, electric motor boats only. There is a daily $5.00 use fee at the lake.

“Quiet and Clean Campground on the Banks of the Nehalem River”

Reviewed 7/5/2018

Nightly rate: $30

Overall Rating

Spent two nights in this peaceful and quiet campground. Nice sized sites with smooth flat paved pads. Large play field and quick river access. Not great for swimming but if you plan out a float down the Nehalem I’m sure it would be worth it! Moderate mosquitos due to river proximity and time of year (early July). Facilities were nicely kept. The sign at the entry showed a wine glass with a cross through it suggesting a no-alcohol policy but it wasn’t enforced and we were across the drive from the host Jack. Strict leash policy. Decent playground for the kids. No hiking and relatively small campground. About 15 minutes outside of Vernonia. Some sites very hard to pull into due to trees. Our sewer connection was forward of normal and we needed two extensions to make the distance.
