A very nice state park, very clean all around. The RV spaces are very limited if your rig is over 35 feet though. Space D31 fit our 34 footer plus truck, but little room to spare and this was one of the largest spaces there. Easy hike to the beach, very quiet and pristine. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a great time at Sunset Bay. Our kids had a wonderful time collecting shells and exploring the tide pools which are just a short walk from the campground. If you stay between Thanksgiving and New Years, be sure to see the lights at nearby Sunset Bay Botanical Gardens. The display is absolutely amazing and the admission is free with your paid camp site. The campground is heavily wooded so there is little sunlight in the winter, even on sunny days. The park is very clean and the camp hosts were great. The showers adjacent to the yurts are newer and quite nice with individual locking doors. Worth the short walk from the main camp if you wish to shower. All facilities were immaculate. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is the one for kids! With a sheltered bay, small camp loops, a FANTASTIC interpretive program with a center and evening programs, included free admission to Shore Acres and Cape Arago, this is a hidden gem in the world class Oregon Parks system. Sunset Bay attracts the best volunteers, and the Interpretive and other Rangers are top flight. Because the park is very much loved, the sites tend to be "hogged out" by summers end, so don't expect manicured grass - expect no grass. But do expect clean everything, friendly people, and if you have any kind of right attitude, you WILL leave smiling. I prefer the perimeter spots, but even a center tent spot is passable with a self contained RV. The only real challenge to Sunset Bay if you are unlucky and don't get a full hook site - you have to travel several miles up the road to a county site to empty your tanks. It's easier to get into Sunset Bay weekdays - and you can easily spend a week just taking in all this park has to offer. This year Labor Day was bad for Sunset Bay, with a death and more than one serious fall, and yet staff handled things with amazing professionalism under challenging circumstances. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful state park. Only a short walk to the ocean, and plenty of things to see to keep you busy for at least a week. Including crabbing in nearby Charleston. Only a few sites for big rigs. Lots of trees, limited TV reception and no cell phone reception. But beautiful campsite. Reservations are a must. Especially on weekends. We had to move to another site for Friday and Saturday as ours was booked. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

The location is actually about 12 miles south of Coos Bay town. A nice little camp site and the location was a short stroll along a path to the beach and day-use area. A little out of the way if you want to enjoy the Oregon Dunes. If the pad was a little bigger so that we wouldn't be in mud (it had rained before we arrived), and the fire-pit was surrounded by mud. Lots of trees and bushes so lots of shade which is great if it's hot but in the cooler days there's little sunlight to warm you up. We camped at Sunset Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.
