This place is great. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable. We only used the laundry and it was good. The sites are of ok size but the vegetation along the outside of fence blocks the view. Short walk or you can drive to the beach. Beach is dog friendly. Wish could have stayed longer and will look forward to returning.
GOOD: Had nice ocean views from some of the RV sites (if you have a rear window, or long enough cords/hoses to pull in forward.) The cottages looked nice. There are hotel rooms available, but we didn't check them out. There is beach access from the north end of the campground (it's a bit of a hill, as the campground sits on a bluff). Movie theater showed 4 movies/day. The area is flat, so bicycling around the campground would be easy. Cardio Room had stair steppers/treadmill/bicycles. There is a laundry room. Showers (4) are off the bathroom. You are issued a key card for the bathroom, but you don't need it as the door does not lock. There's a hot tub and sauna (but I didn't check it out.) Restaurant, bar, gift shop, public computers all near the registration area. BAD: Low voltage issues in Space #35. Using the toaster took the 110 down to 101. Using the microwave when a small heater was running would set off the alarm on the voltage monitor. Some of the power pedestals elsewhere in the campground were "safetied out" and they were in the process of replacing them. However, it did not appear they were upgrading the wire. Overall, the resort is aging and could use some TLC, but it was a pleasant location and a good value. We would return.
The park is right next to the Pacific, with access to the beach. The beautiful Olympia National Forest and National Park is just down the road. Clean, spacious and friendly. This is a wonderful campground. On the other hand, it is a resort, not a military base, so the facilities are what you would find at a very nice motel. One more note: if you are reading this and haven't signed up as a member of militarycampgrounds.us, think about the excellent value this service provides. It's worth hundreds to RV travelers.
Concur with previous posts. A GREAT resort high on a bluff, right on the Pacific Ocean nestled up to the small town of Pacific Beach, maybe 250 people, or so it seems, and a small state park located in town right on the water's edge. It is beautiful with the roar of the ocean and miles of beach to roam. The resort lost power for about five hours while we were there but no big deal; while the nation was baking in the 90's it was a cool, mid to high 60's with a nice ocean breeze to enjoy. Want to get out of your rv for a couple of days? Try $40 a night for lodging. This is a GREAT resort!! Twenty miles down the road is the town of Ocean Shores with plenty of shops, golf and mopheads to rent to explore up and down the beaches for miles. Keep in mind this is the Pacific Northwest. Come October through May or even June, it is gray and rainy most of the time but still beautiful.
