“boy do they pack people in here”

Reviewed Sep 01, 2018

Overall Rating

The location is great and there's not a ton of choices in the area. But these spots are as close together as they can possibly be with no vegetation to break it up. We pulled in after sunset and left the next morning and didn't really feel like we missed out on anything by not staying longer. I could see it being a good base of opera... more

“Beautiful State Park!! AMAZING Staff!”

Reviewed Aug 01, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed at Nehalem Bay State Park the middle of July 2018. First off I want to say the staff at this park is AMAZING. We arrived to a campground that was completely booked, busy season, just to find that an inconveniently placed tree, directly across the road from our reserved site, prevented us from backing in our fiver.

“Quiet, clean park - beautiful beach. ”

Reviewed Jun 27, 2018

Overall Rating

Large, well-run state campground. Our section (D) was very quiet, with the soothing sounds of surf. Beautiful setting with trees and grassy sites. Paved, level sites, with ample room to accommodate and maneuver big rigs (35’ class A). Beautiful beach is a short walk through the grass-covered dunes. Easy 2-mile walk or bike ride into Ma... more

“Wonderful campground with a beautiful beach!”

Reviewed Apr 20, 2018

Overall Rating

We really liked Nehalem Bay as we had visited this location before many years ago. This time it was only a one night stop for us since we were on our way back home. One thing about this campground is that its huge! There are several loops and all of them have access to the beach. The campsites are way off the road so you won't hear an... more

“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
