  • just a short walk to the beach. Clean facilities, stay in the upper section if you need cell service, but we preferred the section closer to the beach. Good location for going to Bandon or Gold...

  • The hike up the mountain is gorgeous and takes you through zone after zone of trees and plants, many in bloom in May. It's a loop and about 3 miles to the top with quite a bit of elevation gain. Some....  more

  • It's a really nice park. Lots of great trails, close to the beach, well shaded most of the time, well maintained, the bathrooms always looked nice, the rangers and other staff were all friendly. Would happily stay there again! I guess some people didn't realize it's close to the road. The park is directly off of hwy101. There will be traffic noise, there will be loud diesel trucks, there will be wind. Please do not be surprised or disappointed by this thinking it wouldn't be there for some reason. They do have a bit of a stellar jay problem but they have a lot of other cute wildlife we did enjoy. I would recommend this park to any outdoorsy type people. Those with children, their junior ranger program is lacking to nonexistent compared to other state parks we have visited but talking to the rangers there, they do plan on expanding and revamping the program services they provide there so it may be better when you go. It was still a very nice park and would happily stay there again!
  • This small state park has a nice beach that is only accessible from the park, so it’s not crowded. The campground has many sites long enough for medium length trailers, and maybe almost half have water and electricity. We are camping in February, so the loop of sites closer to the beach is closed, but if you don’t want to walk that far, you can drive to that loop and park by the short trail to the beach. This morning we walked from site #9 in the loop farther from the beach to the beach and down to the North end where the beach is covered in rocks. The distance there and back was 2.5 miles. I’d guess it’s not even .5 mile to the beach. At the end of the trail where you arrive at the beach the trail drops about 14” so you have two steep steps to take on eroded sandstone and loose sand. A bit tricky for those of us who don’t have sure footing. But it’s only that one place. Verizon cell service is decent. We are having no trouble sending pics in texts and posting to Facebook in the campground and on the beach.
  • I wanted to camp last minute over the Fourth of July weekend and Humbug had a site. I drove down from Portland and spent two nights there. The camp was clean and well maintained. I stayed in a tent site without electric. It was inexpensive. It was a bit close to neighbors without too much brush in between but everyone was respectful. The bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. The showers were hot, which was good! The volunteers were friendly and helpful. I took a couple small trails (Amphitheater) and Fern and they were worthwhile. Fern had a few rough spots but the views were great! I didn’t want to climb Humbug Mountain so I’m glad I had other opportunities. The walk to the beach was not too far and the beach itself was very cozy, since really only visitors to the campground were there. I saw seals in the late afternoon and evening. During the day it was super relaxing just to hang out there. Very soft sand (which made walking a bit effortful) but made lounging very comfortable. Oregon has many nice state parks and this is certainly one of them!
  • Nice little camp site with a short walk to beach access. The sites that are for Rv are pretty open so more of a community area in the middle. The camp ground was very dog friendly with lots of people their pets. The road was in good shape and the park was kept very clean.
  • Air is crisp and fresh. Situated near the highway so sounds of vehicles passing by can be heard at most times. The RV sites are well spaced with plenty of privacy. AT&T phone signal has 2 to 3 bars. It depends on which site you are. Fantastic place to stay. Will come back again.
