Campground Reviews

Sep 08, 2014
The walk to the beach was lovely and our dogs enjoyed running on the beach. My only negative comment on the trip was that we didn't think that the gentleman who runs the campground was very friendly! That was a first in our KOA experiences as we have always been very impressed with the friendliness of the staff!!

Too far from highway & hard to find at night but the lady waited for us and was very friendly & helpful & even had free coffee in the morning for everyone!

This was a surprisingly quaint KOA park. The bathrooms were clean and the personnel was very nice and courteous. They were very informative and helpful. The roosters added the "rural atmosphere." However, getting to the beach was a chore for my husband since there were too many steps going up and down. Once there, it was very relaxing. We enjoyed our short stay!

We love this KOA. Iris and Ken treat everyone like family and they really go out of their way to provide family activities.

My wife and I really love the place and will be going back as often as we can. The Kabin is our favorite. The staff makes us feel like guests not visitors. We are looking forward to next years holiday visits. On this visit we talked about staying longer than our normal three days. The place is packed each time we go so the greatest place secret is out. We simply just love the staff and place

Great staff, friendly and well staffed. Good for RV's with cleaverly arranged sites that give some privacy. Tent sites are poor. The staff made the stay fun. Having people walking through our site constantly and using our site to let their dogs reliev themselves was obnoxious. Might want to put some tips on manners in the literature since people don't seem to get it.

My family and I had a great time, we were accommodated with a large spot in short notice on a holiday weekend! Everything was very clean and lots of activities to keep the kids busy. All the staff was very welcoming, positive, and kid friendly.

The owners/managers and their staff were just the best! Never without a smile on their faces. The campground has a lovely rural feel with all the conveniences of hookups. The path to the beach is perfect and so nice to be able to have beach time.

Wonderful stay. The owners put in a lot of effort, which shows. It was an incredibly family-friendly environment, with the nights quiet and peaceful.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
