Campground Reviews

Aug 26, 2014
The campground had great kid activities and there was a lot of stuff to do. The staff was very helpful!
Aug 26, 2014
Very friendly owners. Delicious home made pizza!

Cozy little spot in the middle of the woods. Quick walk to the beach. Short drive to Long Beach or Astoria. The yurts are huge! I'd definitely recommend it!
Aug 25, 2014
Warm reception at check in. Lots of info on activities. Eager to share local history and community events. Restrooms/showers in great shape.

Could not have ask for a better hose! Clean, well organized, and friendly.
Aug 25, 2014
A nice, smaller campground with the basics and very nice staff. Quiet and off the beaten path, convenient for day trips to area attractions.
Aug 25, 2014
Very freindly at check in. Took us right to our spot and guided us in. They were eager to help us with area info to make our experience more enjoyable.

The atmosphere is good n clean. Kids enjoy playground. Except toilet tissue is too thin.

I will be back just as soon as I can.

Never been to a KOA campground before. The campground was clean and full of amenities. Ken and Iris the camp host's could not have been nicer, knowledgeable about the area and run a better campground!

Beautiful location! Wonderful hosts...Iris & Ken are the best!! Fun activities...our favorite place!!

Loved the campsite! The owners are very, very hard workers who make this campsite feel like home away from home. Be prepared that the Bay Centre KOA is the only source of food and there isn't any fuel stations for 11 miles. That being said, the owners make a pretty good pizza and wings for those times you don't want to cook. All around great, great campsite.

The Shupe's were wonderful hosts and we had a very pleasant stay. Who would have thought that the beach with vast clam & oyster beds could be so fascinating to explore and lots to see in the area. Fish and chips at Docks in Bay Center lived up to their claim of best in town (even if the only place.) Fresh oysters, clams and Pickled Salmon from the nearby seafood market were outstanding. Thanks!

Love the campsite, clamming and the hospitality. One of our new favorites! Can't wait to come back.

Our family stayed in two full hookup trailer sites and a cabin. We all liked the woodsy feel of this KOA and appreciated the friendly staff. There were activities for the whole family, including an oyster barbecue demonstration and tasting and a flashlight candy hunt for kids. We enjoyed walking on the narrow beach, which is down about 35 steps from the campground. Long Beach is a 30 minutes away.
Aug 19, 2014
We had a great time! The kids loved the candy hunt and we all enjoyed the fun family atmosphere. The beach is beautiful also! We have been to the Bay Center KOA twice and we'll definitely be back again.

Ken and Iris are fantastic! We had a great time--lots of fun family activities, clean bathrooms, great campsite. Our boys LOVED the banana bikes!
Aug 19, 2014
The campground is located a short walk to a beautiful beach. Loved it!
Aug 18, 2014
Staff greeted us warmly. Camp store was incredibly well stocked. Wifi excellent. Five minute walk to the sandy beach along forested trail. Play area looked decent. Basketball court is smaller than the map suggests. Washrooms, showers and laundry room very clean. Facility is small so not much privacy though outside sites okay. Signage from hwy not great but our GPS found it. Recommended.

Awesome staff... would recommend this place aND would come back. Live it.

Ken and Iris are fantastic camp hosts. My wife and I have been to this Koa about 6 times in the last 2 years. This stay we brought friends and they in turn had a wonderful time and will recommend.

The staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

Despite the pouring rain one night, we really enjoyed our stay. Great staff there, very friendly and attentive to campers needs. Thank You!

We spend time here every summer and absolutely love it!! Ken and Iris are wonderful welcoming people. They make us feel like it is our home also. There is always something to do, this year the boys did the scavenger hunt and geocached. We wish we could have stayed for the "chopped" nature challenge. We did enjoy some oysters too. Can't wait until next summer!!!

My husband agreed to give a private campground one more chance (having had prior unpleasant experiences with crowded, no-privacy sites). Boy was he surprised! We loved our tent site; it was secluded from other sites, had easy access to water, and a short trail to the beach. The bathrooms were very clean. There was even a dishwashing area! Our 3 kids enjoyed the playground. We had a great time!
Aug 16, 2014
Great staff and location. Thanks Ken and iris.

Everything was clean and taken care of! Loved the dish washing area. The owners we very nice and stopped by a few times just to check in and make sure we were ok. We will be back!

Ken and Iris do a great job to keep their campground clean and running smooth. They had activities planned for everyone. We had a wonderful stay and will return for sure.
Aug 11, 2014
We stayed in a kabin for the first time and loved it! We had a queen and bunk beds in K1 and loved having the porch swing. It was nice to have electrical outlets to charge our phones. Had fun with all the activities and clamming. We will be back!
Aug 11, 2014
Loved the atmosphere at this KOA staff was wonderfully helpful and very friendly. My kids where very apprehensive but have fallen in love with the quiet at this location. We will definitely be back :)

Bathroom is clean, but need a bit more of the ventilation for the woman bathroom. Staffs are nice and friendly. About 40 min drive to seaside and 30 min to long beach. I love to stay there again.
Aug 11, 2014
The Camp hosts, Ken and Iris are friendly and wants your stay to be enjoyable. They provide a personal touch to your stay. Definitely would stay again and would recommend to others the campground. The campground is clean and manicured, the laundry and restroom facilities are clean. Over all we had a very nice experience. Not to mention they have a private clam bed that you have access to.
