Yurts! I love staying in yurts and when I saw that Loon Lodge offered yurts for rental it was definitely the time for me to get out for a small weekend trip to Loon Lake. I drove from Portland and it was not a bad drive at all. When I got to the lodge, check in was smooth because I had made reservations in advance, about 3 months so I could get a yurt to myself. The lodge is also pet friendly which was great so that I could take my little corgi out to the woods for his enjoyment too! There is a small fee involved for pets but that was fine by me as long as I can have my best friend with me on this trip. The yurt had a trundle bed which was more than enough for my needs as I was only staying a night in order to recharge my batteries and be ready to take on the week! The yurt was equipped with a small fridge, microwave, and coffee pot which was pretty decent given that it was a yurt. Overall, things were clean and that was good. For a quick weekend jaunt, I would recommend Loon Lake Lodge to anyone! We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
We had a lower marina back-in site during the 4th of July holiday. Our rate included a Good Sam discount. We really expected more from this resort. The sites were small and close together, the roads were not paved, the landscaping was unkempt, the grass was brown; it just was not a pretty RV resort. People did not observe the quiet hours and drove fast throughout the resort; rules just were not enforced. However ,it was nice to be right by Loon Lake which is beautiful. We saw a bald eagle soaring overhead. As a family with three boys, we enjoyed the swimming/beach area but it was small. The boat rental on the dock was convenient and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We rented a paddle boat one day and a fishing boat another. The resort had daily crafts for the kids on the dock in the morning. I am uncertain if we would return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good park for people with motor boats and kids. They were all enjoying themselves. We found it to be a bit noisy with little enforcement of 'quiet hours'. Our neighbors had quite an argument going at 1:00 a.m. Sites were not private at all and pretty close together. The authors of the book, "The Lusty Life and Adventures of Loon Lake Lloyd"live at the back of the campground. Ellen Keeland is busy on their place and happy for visitors to come say hello. She's delightful and the book is a hoot. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at Loon Lake with my husband and three children. The rv area is set above the marina with views of the lake and has gravel roads. The kids hung out at the beach and played in the sand with their toys. The best fun we had as a family was taking out the jet skis and waverunners! The canoes and kayaks were fun to take out but you can’t beat the excitement of whizzing down the lake with a jet ski or waverunner at 40-50mph! Loon Lake is a beautiful, scenic lake set among towering Douglas pine trees and is one of Oregon’s best kept secrets. The bathrooms and laundry areas were clean. Loon Lake Lodge had a small store where you could buy basic foods, snacks, and beer. The staff was helpful with getting us set up on the jet ski and boat rentals. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow, what a beautiful coastal mountain resort. The setting reminds me of Interlachen in Switzerland. The lake is surrounded by 800' peaks covered with Douglas Fir trees. The RV park was modern and clean. Our kids enjoyed the beach and we enjoyed a hike to the waterfall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Loon Lake Lodge & RV Resort is set on of the the most beautiful lakes in Oregon just off the Oregon Coast. The RV sites are located down by the marina that offers jet ski, wave runner, and boat rentals. The kids had a blast on the jet ski and wave runners. We also took out the canoes and paddle boats which were a great workout. The bathroom and laundry facilities are new and were spotless. We also enjoyed having burger and beers up at the lodge, located up the hill and provides a scenic overlook of the lake on the patio. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Loon lake itself is a beautiful lake, but getting to it is a bit tricky if you're new at driving a large RV. The two lane windy road is very narrow in some places. The RV park is on the rustic side for the price. We were in a 36' motorhome and found pull thru spot#9 was long enough but had some type of underground access outside our front door, so we had to place the table over it to keep folks from tripping. Unfortunately, maybe due to the rain, it was dusty and the logging trucks kicked up the dust as did the people launching their boats. Although it says cable is included, our new rig only got a grainy picture and we had no cell service at all. They have a nice little marina with lake rentals - but when we went down to rent something at 1:30 p.m. there was no one at the store and no note. Consequently, we cut the rest of our stay short and went to another resort. The managers are very nice and hopefully will be able to fix these little issues so people will be able to enjoy this beautiful lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We thououghly enjoyed our visit to Loon Lake. The lake had a lot of recreational appeal,
and has never been overcrowded in our experiences. We would return again and again. Staff is helpful and knowledgable, and grounds are well kept. We enjoyed the conviences of the lodge, including the restaurant, store, and gas available for our jet skis. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a run down campground. Rates with PA were good but not worth it. Restroom and showers were not clean. Lots of full time residents. Lots were long enough but needs tree trimming and drainage. Front Desk was friendly but wouldn't come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here a month and got a great rate. The staff was terrific. The power at the sites in the rear went off and on several times. They promptly took care of it to get it back on. The sites are over grown with trees and shrubs, they need some TLC to say the least. The sites are a little difficult getting into as they are narrow. We will come back next year and hopefully they will have done some maintenance on the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We planned on staying at this RV park, so when we pulled in we walked around to pick a site. Most RV's were long term and everything was run down. There was standing water in most sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for Passport America. Amazing value for the price! If you stay close enough to the office, you do get Wi-Fi. However, we requested to stay in the back because we didn't want to hear any traffic. The manager was very nice and accommodating. It was nice and quiet. Very pet and kid friendly. They have a bounce pillow across from the office. (Pretty cool; I had never seen one before). There is also good cable TV. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice wooded, older campground with lots of sites. Wi-Fi isn't available at every site, with no discount rate given. We asked up front. The sites are tight, graveled and fairly level. Those with larger RV's might find them too small. We acquired one of the larger sites in the back as per a previous post's recommendation. The site had not been cleaned, was covered in rotting leaves, and one of us promptly stepped in dog droppings. We went ahead and set up the rig completely. Then, we found the TV cable didn't work. We called the office and they said, "Oh yeah, it doesn't work out there." That's it, no offers of discounts in the fees or moving us to another site. We mentioned that they should have informed us at registration and we wouldn't have gone to all the trouble of setting up, etc. We packed up, got our money back and moved on down the road. We will never stay her again. The workers could use a little public relations work. They should tell customers what is and isn't available at registration. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I met the new Manager upon check in and she was quite friendly. She informed me she worked for a new owner and told me things were under construction and that they had loads of changes in store. They were putting in a jumping pillow out front and a new net on their tennis court while we were there. I can't wait to go back in July. I found the park pretty nice. The front spaces are sort of close to the road, but the back of the park has huge spots, brand new picnic tables and some sites even have cedar furniture in them. I think this park will soon be the best in the west. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second visit to the Surfwood RV Campground over a 10-year period. The campground is fairly well maintained and caters to both the traveler and what appears to be full time RV residents. Campsites are routinely separated by occasionally untamed shrubbery, sometimes blackberry bushes. This gives the campground not only a rustic appearance but also creates a good degree of privacy between campsites. The current owners have gone to significant lengths to upgrade the campground with Wi-Fi and an excellent convenience store. The swimming pool, however, is not well situated for easy use and is only available on a seasonal basis. RVers have numerous opportunities to camp along the Oregon Coast Highway and spend a comfortable night as well as an extended stay in the Reedsport-Winchester Bay area. Surfwood Campground is a good choice for a modestly priced campground and offers adequate amenities. Not to be missed is the town of Winchester Bay with its excellent assortment of local businesses (loved the knife shop!) and restaurants. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
