Can anyone comment on South Beach vs Beverly Beach? We are headed to that area the second week of September. Wondering which campground would be better for us. Family of 4 with a 3yo and a 10 month old. We have the aquarium on the agenda but really would like to know which campground people prefer in general or whether it's a toss up. Specific loops or campsites would even be a further bonus!

Highly recommend Beachside State Park campground, which is 17 miles south of South Beach. Campsites are much closer to the beach, with more privacy. The only shortcomings are no sewer hookups or dump station. See comments below regarding South Beach and Beachside State Park campgrounds.

==========

South Beach State Park Campground
Newport, OR

Stopped here to use dump station, which was free, because we had camped at Beachside SP.

Park looks nice. Most sites are in open areas with limited shade and no privacy. Good for overnight stop, but was crowded. The first loop we drove through was full.

==========

Beachside State Park Campground
Waldport, OR

Campsites are immediately adjacent to the beach! Easy walk about 100 feet to where low tide exposes a couple of hundred yards of flat sandy beach that runs for several miles.

First row of campsites has limited shade, but some have a beach view. Second and third parallel interior roads are more shaded in the trees that border the beach.

Paved interior roads and pads. Wooden picnic tables, fire rings, electric and water, but no sewer. Flush toilets and showers were very clean. No dump station, but free dump stations available 17 miles north at South Beach SP and 17 miles south at Carl G. Washburn Memorial State Park.

We camped in site #40, which is on the turnaround at the end of rows 2 & 3. Beach front sites are prime, and nearly all had advanced reservations and were occupied. When we stayed here in April, two-thirds of the sites were in rows 2 & 3, and nearly all were empty. We had no neighbors, except for the yurts that were back-to-back with this site. Very secluded and quiet campground in off-season. However, I suspect it is packed in the summer.

Weak cell service (had to walk to an empty campsite near the highway). Weak 3G broadband was OK, but had to use external antenna and amplifier. Only one weak TV station (NBC), which was OK most of the time, but dropped out during rain.

Fee: $24-29 per night, depending on season.

Really enjoyed our stay here 04/13 through 04/18/14 -- Highly recommend this campground!

Southbeach can be a real zoo. Ive camped there at least once a year most of my life because its close to the marina. But sites are small tight and crowded. In the summer its packed with families because of the playgrounds and local ammenities. The beach is nice though. But a longer walk the farther north your camp site is.

I've been to beverly beach once or twice it seemed a. Little quieter, but under the highway. The beach seemed to have sand again last time i was there. Its alonger drivefrom the marina andaquarium though.

South Beach vs Beverly Beach

We have camped at both Beverly Beach, and South Beach. I actually prefer Beverly Beach because of the nice wooded areas and the walk to the beach isn't very far... however, I have only camped at both in off seasons. If you haven't been to either one... they are both nice. Be sure and "take in" the lighthouses along the way if you are driving along the coast! Here are a couple of photos from both South Beach and Beverly Beach.

Oh such difficult decisions!

Have fun! Enjoy the Oregon Coast! Mid September should be nice, but you could have rain... (actually we'd love to see some!)

Ecola State Park is worth a visit as well, love that place. We were there back in March.

Any issues towing a 25 or larger along the entire OR coast? Curious on choke points, etc. that would make a 25 too long. Thanks.

No, you can easily navigate the entirety of Hwy 101 in a 25'-30' Airstream. It's curvy and slow in spots, but very doable.

Most of the campgrounds can accommodate the 25' with ease.

BTW for future reference to anyone traveling in the summer here in the western states and Canada should be aware of forest fires.

To that end here is a web site and they also have an iPhone app Fire Map, Wildfire Map, Wildland Fires Map, Wildfire Detection Maps that should be in your planning and travel info tools.

Also Oregon Smoke Information is handy to know where the smoke blows.

we have stayed at Beverly beach a couple of times in the past and would not go there again. same for my BIL, as there are often drunken parties going on into the wee hours. there is no enforcement so good luck.

a swing out to Cape Kwanda is also interesting but only private campgrounds out there. a visit to the Pelican brew put is essential and if in season, you can watch the dory fleet launch and come in to the beach. as is usually the case, in the summer months the coast is crawling with people.
