We had tent camping reservations and our site was flooded out and they refused to provide a refund, kind of a bummer.
Located on the Oregon side of the Columbia River, this campground is a popular destination for nature lovers. There is plenty to do in and around Fort Stevens State Park, and they've got sites for RVs and tents, along with cabins too. We think this is one of the best stops on an Oregon coast camping trip.
Aside from the mentally disturbed young man yelling in the next campsite, we had a lovely spot. It was nice and private (something that many Oregon state parks lack), had power and water, and Oregon state parks have free showers. No more fumbling for change! I would definitely stay here again.
Fort Stevens is an incredible place to camp. With the ocean, lake and historical sites all within a bike ride, my kids were never bored. The sites were great and we had plenty of room for our trailer and more.
Fort Stevens was the primary military defense installation in the three fort Harbor Defense System at the mouth of the Columbia River (Forts Canby and Columbia in Washington were the other two).
