Nestled in a gorgeous little part of the Oregon coast, Sunset Bay State Park provides beautiful sandy beaches for both locals and visitors alike. For campers, there are a total of 120 traditional sites to choose from. All of these are adjacent to water sources, as well as public restrooms and coin-operated showers. For RV owners, 30 of these sites are full hookup, meaning they take kindly to recreational vehicles. A concrete slab located in each of these full hookup sites allows individuals with vehicles to drive directly onto their campsite.
Campers are allowed to have a total of two vehicles per site, with extra vehicles costing an additional $7. Canines are allowed to accompany guests onto the campgrounds provided they stay on a leash throughout their stay. If hiking is more your speed, there's a vast network of trails here for you to explore. Approximately seven total miles wind around Sunset Bay State Park, providing guests with views of untouched coastal forests, incredible ocean waterscapes, and glimpses of the seasonal wildflower bloom that pepper the shoreline.
These trails are covered in crushed gravel and are generally quite easy to navigate. Park officials regularly post any weather updates that might affect these trails on the Oregon State Parks' website, so make sure you take a peek before going for an exploration. Visitors are welcome to take their canines along on these trails, provided they stay on a leash no longer than six feet. Doggie refuse stations are located at all trails heads, so make sure to clean up anything your companion may leave behind.
Guests looking for something a little more intellectually stimulating will have a great time exploring the Sunset Bay State Park's Interpretive Center. This is a combination meeting center and museum that regularly hosts tidepool walks school group tours and Junior Ranger programs throughout the year. For more information on these programs, make sure you check out the Sunset Bay State Park's website for updates.
