Just north of Newport a few miles and right off Hwy 101 (and I mean right off) is a forested campground called Beverly Beach State Park. It lies directly east of Hwy 101 (and I mean directly) and with a short walk under the bridge on Hwy 101 you are, presto, on the beach.
When you arrive at the campground they have 3 lanes dedicated to vehicles for checking-in which is perfect. Plenty of space to park, unhook, register, and so forth.
It’s a beautiful campground with around 250 sites, some with full hook-ups, some with electric, and some for tenters. There are multiple loops with B loop being small with few space but with full hookups and with the closest access to the beach. Some of the sites provide terrific views (albeit a bridge blocks part of the view) but, none the less, it is a beach view!!! Many of the sites in B loop are big rig accessible, just not much privacy or space. But I’ll take a water view over anything, practically.
The B loop takes reservations so all the sites were taken when we were there so off we went to the back end of the campground into the G loop. Not a soul there. It was fabulous and still a short walk to the beach.
Campground: Beverly Beach State Park
Location: North of Newport, Oregon a few miles
Site: G4 (back-in)
Services: E/W (30 AMP)
Comments: A nice, treed, campground with quick, easy beach access. We were there in the off season and had no problem driving around to the back end of the campground. If it were peak season and the campground was full we might have had a bit of a struggle going around some corners depending on the extra vehicles parked around and about.
And the beach, the lovely beach! Just a short walk away.
