We had read excellent reviews about Bay Point Landing from fellow RVers and thought we we should head there and see what all the fuss was about. What a wonderful place. Bay Point Landing sits on the bay not far from the Pacific Ocean and offers a “modern camping” experience with waterfront RV sites, rental cabins, rental Airstreams, an indoor swimming pool, a fitness center, a small general store, an event center/meeting room, and an activities room. The buildings are of Scandinavian design (designed by OFFICEUNTITLED) and it all feels very contemporary and sleek.
There is a large parking lot for check-in which is in one of the modern, sleek, “Scandinavian style architecture” buildings. The office staff is very professional and accommodating. They sell a variety of RV supplies, food, wine, snacks, firewood, etc. all of which they will deliver to your site.
In the same cluster of buildings resides a fitness center and an indoor swimming pool along with a walk around deck with great views of the bay.
The buildings include an events center which would be perfect for renting out for small get-togethers and included couch and chair seating, a dining table, and a kitchen. There is also an activities center with a large screen TV, couches, chairs, and a large scrabble board on the wall! (No pictures as there were children in there playing at the time).
RV Park: Bay Point Landing
Location: Coos Bay, Oregon (along the Empire Range channel)
Site: 7 (Pull in)
Comments: A lovely, but rather expensive, campground with great views of the bay, with close proximity to both Coos Bay and North Bend. The park has excellent customer service and nice, clean restrooms and showers, and a laundry room. Sites are gravel with pavers for the picnic area and offer a stone campfire pit and picnic table. There are also back-in waterfront sites that allow you to maximize your view based on your rig design.
The beach was right next to our site so we could either walk the beach, sit on the driftwood on the beach, take our chairs down to the beach, or just sit in our chairs at our site. Either way we quite enjoyed watching the fishing boats, the clam diggers at low tide, and the high activity of birds in the area.
The gulls were quite busy with digging for crabs and fighting each other over them and more so during low tide. We spent quite a bit of time watching them eat their crab and/or drop their clams to break them open. It was all very entertaining.
The campground offers rental Airstreams and they had several rows of them. It could be a nice vacation should you not have your own RV and want to “feel” like you are camping or glamping.
The campground also offers a few different sized cabins for rent. They looked adorable and they continued in the “Scandinavian style architecture” for that modern look.
The park is still laid out like a typical RV Park with sites right next to each other and what seems like endless rows of rigs but when the place isn’t busy then it is great. While we were there (September) it was full on the weekend but during the week it cleared out.
And, of course, I can’t forget the fabulous sunsets we endured (ha, ha…) practically every night we were there! A beautiful place that we would love to go back to (if we can afford it)!
