“Great dry camping alternative to nearby booked state parks”
Reviewed Sep 13, 2017
We intended to stay at Fort Stevens SP but arrived too late on a Wednesday night during the second week of September. The ranger on duty couldn't be bothered to suggest a nearby alternative but the pricey ($61) KOA host up the road.away recommended Hammond Basin (another name for this same place). The marina RV park is spacious, features either grassy parking spots or pavement. Big rigs are welcome but tents are prohibited even though we saw several. There were a dozen other rigs the first night and maybe 18 on Friday night. Most people parked on the grass. Several new and frequently serviced PortaPotties dotted the area.
The first night was foggy so we were wakened by the fog horns of passing ships but that was kinda neat even though super loud and hard to ignore.
Friday night was clear and quiet.
There's a nice day use parking area for 20 cars right on the river a couple hundred yards away from the camping area. We spent several hours there watching the boat tragic, sea lions and a couple of whales play around. Very cool!
While no hookups or water, the portapotty solution and view of the VC river makes this a very doable solution when we visit Astoria. There's a self pay station kiosk as you pull in that accepts credit cards or cash. We didn't see an attendant or anyone who polices the marina area during our two day stay there. Signs indicate that it's $27.50 a night but the fee station says $30. Either way, pretty good deal.
