“Great Beach Access”

Reviewed Jan 14, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a nice state park for beach access. You won’t feel like you are wilderness camping though as it is mainly rows and rows of camp sites. Our site, F21, did back onto a marshy treed area that provided privacy behind us. We stayed in the off season and had the park pretty much to ourselves, but in season I am sure it feels cro... more

“Great Beach Park”

Reviewed Oct 24, 2017

Overall Rating

Very empty in late season, we had several sites worth of buffer space in the no- reservations loop. No issues with staying multiple nights either, unlike some Oregon State Parks when you don't reserve online. Fabulous beach, clean sites, clean bathrooms for a state park. Sites could be close together if the place is crowded. Good... more

“Very nice state park”

Reviewed Sep 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Beautiful state park with paved, level sites. We have a 40 ft 5th wheel and were able to fit into site A41 with no trouble. The sites along this stretch of the A loop seemed to have a little more room around them than sites in the rest of the campground. We backed up to woods for a little privacy. The loops can be tight to drive around... more

Nehalem is one of our favorite state parks we've ever stayed in and location is the reason why! Location: You are just steps from the dunes of the beautiful Oregon Coast and Pacific Ocean and if you get the right located site like we did on the outer ring you have good space, light, and even some nicely-positioned trees to string yo... more

“Beautiful park, great location”

Reviewed Jul 04, 2017

Overall Rating

The Data: We stayed at Nehalem Bay State Park at the end of June 2017 and had a great time. The sites are all paved and ours was level. There are trees everywhere which made the scenery beautiful; however, in our 36' Class A, it also made it a bit difficult to back in (all sites are back-in). Each site has water, a fire pit, a p... more

“Typical Oregon state park near a beautiful beach”

Reviewed Jun 26, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed at several Oregon State parks this month and Nehalem was our least favorite. Mostly due to the fact it was crowded and sites are very close together. We'd probably come back during a less busy time of year. The sites are well maintained, clean restrooms and showers, and there is a path over a sand dune area to a lovely be... more

We unfortunately could not stay at this state park due to their lack of tree trimming. RVs that are 11’ tall or shorter should be ok, those that are 12’ may have some issues, RVs that are similar to our height (13’4”) should not even consider this state park (unless of course you don’t mind driving through pine tree branches as you dri... more

“The Oregon coast as your backyard”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2017

Overall Rating

This large state park is right behind the dunes of miles of Oregon coast line. Sites are a little tightly spaced, but it's a popular park, and worth it for the access to the beach and the little towns on Manzanita and Nehalem. There's also a bike trail right into town.

The rate is for water and electric only. There are 265 campsites in six loops divided into two groups of three loops each. One of the loops was available as first-come first-serve. Sites range from 31' to 54' long. If you arrive without a reservation, pick up a map to check out the length of each site. The park also has a nice looking ... more

“Wonderful beach location with so much to see and do!”

Overall Rating

Nehalem Bay State Park lies on a 4 mile long sand spit with a picturesque bay on one side and an ocean beach with scenic views of Neahkahnie Mountain on the other. Plus the location of the campground is away from Hwy 101, so no loud road noise. We were fortunate to get there early enough to secure a long nice site as there was a lin... more
