This is a great venue for tent and RV camping right on the ocean and bay. A great place for those into water sports, beaching and coastal shopping.

This is a really nice campground. The beach is two minutes walk from the campsites. Spots are a bit close but not too bad. The bay side is sheltered and is great for boating or kayaking. The beach is good for kids as it's a...More

Most of the sites are quite big and a lot of people had multiple tents on their sites. But I would contact Nahalem directly to confirm that you will have room.
