Description

Driving toward Astoria on Highway 30, you'll avoid the crowded beach towns entirely. Yet those same towns with their busy outlet malls are just a short drive from here. They're an easy day trip away from peaceful waters, the sound of birdsong in the mornings, and easy summer barbecues while camped beneath a dark and starry (email hidden)With limited campsites spaced amply apart, we are located just 20 minutes east of our historic and beautiful hometown of Astoria, Oregon, and as long-time locals we can tell you where to find ALL the special sites.

Our camp is family friendly (no loud parties please) with plenty of room to relax and places to explore. We offer group runs to and from outlying day use areas morning, noon and night with out-rigging services soon coming in 2018. Check out our website for local events calendar and read our blog.

Astoria is a worker's hub founded by John Jacob Astor and his famous Astor Fur Trading Co.

You might want to take in the views along our working waterfront. Mo's Chowder House (for their famous clam chowder) and Baked Alaska Restaurant offer expansive river views. A ride on the trolley is just $1 for the day and you can get off and on (email hidden)Check out our homemade ice cream shop and other businesses at our Historic Downtown Astoria's business directory.

In Astoria, you've got to make time to just enjoy the river traffic. Peaceful! Robust. Our RIVER is the busiest place in town. Pilot boats are moored just off the docks on 12th Street, helping cruise and cargo ships from all around the world to safely cross the Columbia River Bar. Here in Astoria, they are anchored every day.

In addition to the well-maintained trails we offer within minutes from our campsite, we often recommend a visit to the woodland trails at Shively Park or the Cathedral Tree trail winding gently up to Astor Column (Google Coxcomb Hill) where you can overlook the Columbia River bar. This is where the river meets the Pacific Ocean just a few short miles away. There you'll find breath-taking views and a cool gift shop with souvenirs, if that's your thing.

Coffee shops, bakeries/bistros and full service restaurants are everywhere and offer only the freshest local and regional cuisine. You'll find them on every block. Before you go, you might want to shower up (ie: workout) at one of the gyms on your way into town, visit the sea lions at Pier 39, or take the family to the aquatic center for some hot tub and water-sliding fun. They've also got a toddler pool for the littles, a "lazy-river" therapy pool, lanes for die-hards looking to swim laps and lifeguards on duty always, of course.
