Cliffside is an outstanding RV park! Probably one of the best military famcamps in the nation. It is on the Puget Sound (Salish Sea) water’s edge and the views are spectacular. You have an open ocean view with Olympic National Park in the southern distance and the San Juan Islands & Vancouver Island in the western and northern distance. The sites are spaced out so there is no crowding at all. All utilities are easy to access and work fine. There are 2 loops, southern and northern. We were in the southern loop and the camp host, Ken, is a master gardener. The gardens in and around the park are just beautiful. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are a few negatives that are worth mentioning. The Naval Air Station is very active and they have flight ops often. Jet noise can be annoying. The other is the wind. During the fall and winter months the wind can be relentless. There are days when the winds are a steady 20 to 30 mph with guts of 50 to 60 mph. Other days are a steady 15 to 20 mph with gusts of 30 mph or so. However, the weather in the summer months are the best in the country!! Cellular service is almost non-existent. We had Verizon and had very spotty service (at the park). We switched to T-Mobile and had the same problem. We ended up buying a cell booster, which made a huge difference. We spent a month there in Aug/Sept of 2018 and (this time) we spent 4 months there during Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov. The part of the base on the other side of the island houses the Exchange and Commissary. Both are very large and have about anything you’d need. Oak Harbor is a pleasant town and has plenty of restuarants, shopping, and everything else. VERY IMPORTANT: Use the Chas. Porter Gate for entry and exit to the base. All other gates have too many obstacles and you’ll regret it.
