On Recreation.gov it appeared that we would have no problem getting our big rig into one of Bluebill's extra-long sites. Unfortunately the narrow campground road isn't wide enough to allow for the necessary jack knife of rig-truck AND our walk-up site (16) was lined with those blasted concrete bollards. A key bollard had been taken out by a previous camper or we could not have gotten in. As it was, the lug nuts on the truck's front drivers side tire literally scraped the concrete of the bollard while the entire right side of our fifth wheel scraped the high hedge just to the side of the driveway. And the drive was on the "wrong" side of the site for a back-in; our door and windows faced a tall hedge and we had to walk around the rig to access the concrete pad and picnic table.

That said, once we got settled, we loved this little campground. We were here for seven days in mid-September. The 1.25 mile Bluebill Lake trail is immediately accessible from the campground with lovely views of the lake, dunes, and forest. Horsfall Beach is about 1.5 miles farther down the road with a nice big parking lot. (There is dry camping right at the beach to the left and rear of the parking lot, but it is mainly used by OHVers.) We watched the sunset at the beach one evening and then walked up to the parking lot and the large wooden observation deck to watch the moon rise from the east. The town of Coos Bay is just a few miles away with all the services you could need. Verizon signal is decent with 12.8 mps download, 0.47 mps upload.

I imagine mosquitos could be bad in the summer because of the high water/swamp that surrounds the campground but it was not an issue in September. There is a threaded water spigot around the bend from the camp host; no dump. We could definitely hear OHVs from Bluebill and OHVs are allowed on the beach from Hosefall Beach and going north.

Spent 14 days here in July. Escaping the heat from the desert southwest.

The good. Nice access near Coos Bay. The campground has sites that are spread out quite well. Very quiet. Bluebill lake close (100 yards) and has many yellow perch. Showers about a mile up the road. Threaded water spigot. About a half mile from the beach with good parking and excellent beach access.

The not as good. Mosquitos at night. Tormented some tent campers. I would not come here in a tent without a screen enclosure. Pit toilets. Most campgrounds with pit toilets charge less. Can hear OHV's , especially on weekends - but this goes with the territory on Oregon Dune beaches.

Easy access to all service at Coos bay.

The view of Coos Bay (almost) makes the price worth it.
