While Oregon Coast RV parks with ocean views are far and few between, there are some nice ones where you can enjoy the Oregon Coast’s famous scenic beauty, from spectacular sunsets over sandy beaches to waves crashing on mammoth sea stacks.

Southern Oregon Coast—Gold Beach

Sprechen Sie Deutsch? You don’t need to in order to feel at home in this friendly “taste of Germany” RV Park with its Black Forest Kitchen and annual Oktoberfest. Honey Bear Campground & RV Resort, a Good Sam member, offers ocean-view sites for “rigs of all sizes” year-round. Dining is seasonal, but you can try your luck in its private, stocked trout pond.

The park sprawls over 100 acres nine miles north of Gold Beach and its Rogue River jet boat rides and beach horseback riding. Amenities include full hookup and pull-through sites, dump stations, showers, restrooms, laundry, beach access and cable TV and Wi-Fi access. Pets on leashes are welcome.
