We stayed therefor three weeks (13th-3rd) and have gotten to know many of the staff here. Over all the staff is really friendly, although there are always those bitter employees who only work there for the money a big amount of the rangers are the sweetest. I especially love the activity ranger, she is a keeper, South Jetty!
After going on a few jogges , walks and runs around the park I have really gotten to liking the setup of the place. The park is in the middle of the forest which is great for size. Its quite big compared to a lot of RV parks which also gives each site more size too. There is forest surrounding each site which makes it private and seem huge! They recently cut down a bunch of trees (I would say about 20%) so that you can get cell service now. The down side to that is that it doesn't look at nice and forest-y there, but I'm glad I had phone service.
The Family Lodge is a great place to hang out, whether it be playing pool, surfing the web on their free WiFi (The wifi is not very fast, its not slow but its not fast), or sitting on their balcony watching the other campers swim in the pool. Its really relaxing and a great place to read a book and watch the fog drift through the trees. ( I would talk about the adult lodge but I don't know anything about it being a teenager and all)
I love the area around the RV park. In one direction there is the ocean (remember to bring winter jackets to the beach, Oregon's beaches have freezing stinging wind even in the summer), its about a five minute drive away from the park (if you keep driving until you reach a 'End Fee Zone' sign you don't even have to pay for parking) and on the way you also pass a bunch of sand dunes (they are mainly meant for four-wheelers , I recommend going on the dunes right next to the beach). In the other direction you get to a little town called Florence. It has all the things you would need; Grocery stores, fast food and strip malls. And there are sand dune rides and a miniature golf course a little outside of town. My favorite part of going to town is driving there- The view from the birdge that takes you to town is beautiful: you can see a beautiful river, Sand dunes, The ocean and the foggy mountains of Oregon. Oregon is now my favorite state is the most beautiful place on Earth! ;)
Lets see... am I forgetting anything? Oh- The bathrooms and such. The Bathrooms are old and rusty but pretty nicely kept. The cleaning people do a good job.
I think that's all I was going to talk about... hope you like it! Tschüss!
