    Half Moon Bay Campground Description

    The Half Moon Bay Campground is located near Reedsport, Oregon and is situated next to the Oregon Dunes recreation park.  This campground caters mostly to ATV riders and you will typically find larger groups with motorhomes and RVs camped here. This is probably not the ideal campground for traditional tent campers.

    The campground’s location is great if you are looking for easy beach access as the ocean can be found just a quick two minute walk up and over the nearby dunes.  The layout of the campground is almost like a grill with most sites having limited privacy.  The ground is primarily sand and gravel you can expect to listen to the sound of ATVs running up and down the dunes all day long (and probably into the night).

    There are 42 sites and pretty much all of them are built to accommodate large RV’s and trailers with more than half the sites being pull throughs.  Campfires are allowed and there are vault toilets available.  Fees start at $23 a night and group sites are much more.

    Although the site caters primarily to ATV riders this is a great location for beach goers who don’t mind the sound of ATVs.  The Umpqua Lighthouse is nearby and there are plenty of sand dunes to hike around on and explore.

      It is very noisy. Very dusty. The camp hosts are not very nice nor do they keep the area clean. The dumpsters are over flowing and left for the birds to scatter. I will not use this camp ground again.

        Hey Kathy – sorry to hear about year experience here. Unfortunately, these ATV type campgrounds are a little rougher around the edges. Next time you are in the area try staying at the Umpqua Lighthouse State park nearby. It caters more towards tent campers, is actually paved and would hopefully have friendlier staff. http://www.muddycamper.com/oregon/umpqua-lighthouse-campground/

      I really enjoyed this camping spot. I prefer to sand camp but it was too wet. If you don’t go out and ride on the sand this is not a spot for you to camp. The only negative I have to say is it is pretty spendy to stay here but still worth it.

      The camp host are lazy and rude. Quiet times are not enforced. Would have been better sleeping in the shoulder of the freeway.
