“Excellent small park with wonderful amenities especially for dog owners”
Reviewed Apr 17, 2015
We stayed at Chinook for 6 weeks and could have stayed longer if we wanted to.
This park is absolutely fabulous for those of us traveling with pets. The owners are great dog lovers and they will do anything to make you and your pets feel welcome.
The park is small right on the Alsea River, with excellent amenities, washer/dryer room, full or partial hook ups, cable tv, and the wifi is free and excellent strength. I know this really is exceptional. Most parks will tell you they have free wifi but most are hardly usable and have the pace of a 2400 baud modem in the '90's.
It is not really a park for those with kids, there are no kids amenities like play grounds and they are not allowed in the river.
We especially picked Chinook RV because it breathes the simplicity that we like and that makes us feel relaxed. The proximity to the river is awesome.
The dog off leash area is also located at the river and they have a HUGE field to run and play in and get their paws wet in the river.
I am a wheelchair user and Chinook RV Park is very accessible to me. I can accompany the dogs easily to the off-leash area in my wheelchair and can even drive around on the field and getting close to the water. This depends on the tide of course, if it has been high tide the grounds can be wet on some places and you will soon get to know those areas and know you have to avoid them in order to not get stuck.
We were parked at space nr: 16, all spaces are wide and large. Our 5th wheeler is 42 ft long and we had no problem fitting in.
Park is located on Highway 34 we did have some noise from the road but not excessive. Because there are no children the park itself is quiet.
Waldport has a good variety of small shops, an excellent grocery, pharmacy, drug store, hardware store, candy store and don't forget the antique stores.
On Thursdays and Saturdays the Pacific Dough Company, a bakery with the yummiest breads, tarts and pastries is open to the public. You have to try their Raspberry tarts they are to die for.
On wednesday there is a small farmers market where you can buy all kinds of fresh produce and of course some art products.
For breakfast and lunch/dinner I can highly recommend Jamie's Dockside Diner. A little bit further up the Alsea River Jamie has her diner on the dock on the river and serves the tastiest food ever. Take your time and lounge outside on the dock while enjoying your food.
Chinook RV Park is conveniently located to all these great 'things to do'. This park management is of the highest standard that we ever experienced. They made us feel right at home and we are sorry we have to pack up and go. We certainly will be back!!
