When we stayed at Nehalem in 2009, early Oct., 'A' loop was full so we, and three or four others who didn't have reservations, had the entire 'B' loop to ourselves. Nobody drove through 'B' loop to get out, but everybody had to drive through 'A' loop, including us. We were in B 30 or 32.

Donna (or anyone in the know), are there certain loops reserved, and is there a clubhouse or area where activities happen? Is it better to stick to the inside of a loop, or does it really matter? Where would it be best to take Jasper for a run from? How many questions do I get to ask?

You can ask as many questions as you wish! Whether you get answers or not...

If you saw the map on the top post, I'm the yellow spot. Few trees, but I wanted sun!. The ones at the top (beach access) back up to a sand berm. They're more protected from wind and there are some trees. On A Loop the inside loop ones across from the berm back up to a wooded area. On the right side going down and around, those sites are in the trees. All of B loop is a lot more open than A Loop. The beach is usually pretty deserted if your dog likes to run on the beach.... and there may be a dog park here.... maybe.

All activities for Friday night and Saturday night happen in my site. I'll see if we might be able to get use of the Meeting Hall that's just outside A Loop. But renting these things is expensive, so we normally just wing it and hope for the best weather wise. I'll think further on this...


The top post also has a link where you can view the individual camp sites, you may find that helpful.

Does this help? You guys think you can make the NOG?

It's not that far down to the horsey loop, if you have a horse. The park even provides a shovel.

Nehalem Bay SP even has an airstrip for private airplanes and camping sites close by. It's definitely a park you'd like to have a bicycle handy! Loops D, E and F are closed to camping while we're at the Fall NOG.

Lisa is out in Ottawa right now dealing with stuff for her father, and I haven't asked her, but I plan to book in as part of a trip we plan to do this fall. Gotta work on being at least semi-retired soon.

And thanks for the added info, helped a bunch.

Obey the signs.
And you thought you'd retired.

Hi Donna - That was Laura that wondered about their trailer being ready for the Fall NOG. I was signing up when I noticed Nehalem had yurts that they might utilize if they really wanted to attend and be assured of a place to sleep. BTW, we're in space A20 which I'm hoping is long enough for our trailer and tow (35' which means we'll hang over a bit in the back ... ).

Jan, you should be okay in that site. Check out this photo at Campsitephotos.com ... you can see there's some room for overhang beyond the tire-stopper thing at the end of the pad.

... and if you're coming from Felton you are pretty much required to bring a pallet of Morning Buns from Kelly's French Bakery... We'll be in a site right across from you.
