Description

Oyster Point is a small, rustic campground that offers access to fishing and canoeing.  Canines are welcome here, but a limit of two pets per guest is enforced.

Roughly half of the 15 sites present in Oyster Point are priced a bit higher at $16 per evening, due to their larger size and better location on the grounds. None of these sites come with plumbing or electrical connections, so any potential campers should come ready for a more primitive experience. During peak season, all pricing increases, with base sites rising to $10 per evening, and double-wide scenic sites going up to $20. Normal dog rules apply at Oyster Point, so keep them out of the common areas and on a leash throughout your stay at Oyster Point.

If you're a fan of canoeing or kayaking, the nearby Newport River offers some excellent chances to enjoy all the scenery that the surrounding national forestland has to offer. These waters are generally reasonably tame, but as they're open to motorboat traffic, guests should keep a lookout to avoid any unwanted run-ins. If Fido is your passenger for the day, make sure to take all available safety precautions before launching your vessel.

Hiking is done via the Neusiok Trail. This over 20-mile stretch leads campers through a variety of terrain and is a perfect day trip for you and your canine. Be sure to pack everyday essentials like water and a fully charged cell phone, as this trail is somewhat wild. Canines must be on a leash, and owners are required to pick up any litter that their pets deposit on the ground.

If you're planning a visit to Oyster Point Campground, it's wise to remember that fees listed here do not cover admission costs to the surrounding national forests. Additional fees may be collected for adjacent activities not related to Oyster Point.
