Pacific Shores Motorcoach Resort, Newport, Oregon

We have never been to a friendlier place. In a pinch because of a complication with leveling at a Washington State Park, and after a night in a Walmart parking lot with nowhere else to go, we researched and found this place that fit pretty well into our itinerary. With a hefty price tag per night close to the century mark, we had worries that we would find an overpriced, under-maintained RV "resort" like so many we have encountered. Our preconceived notions were wrong and we rolled into a beautiful RV resort, allowing only Class As and Cs, impeccably maintained with spacious sites and lovely amenities. This is an ownership park, so many folks here during our stay were owners staying in their sites for a few weeks. We also happened to be there the weekend before "Owner's Week" so the park was beginning to really fill up. When owners are not in their sites, those sites become available for nightly stays to non-owners. We couldn't believe how friendly everyone was. Our neighbors, owners, in the sites on both sides of us took time to introduce themselves, swap RV stories, travel itineraries, and tips. We also met many folks who were just
walking by or doing laundry that took time to have a nice conversation with us. In twenty-four hours here, we met more nice people than probably all of our trips combined! Interior roads and site pads are paved, with beautifully landscaped sites offering space. There is little to no privacy between sites, but maybe that attributes to the friendly lifestyle here. Hookups are at each site and most sites offer either a stunning oceanview of the lighthouse, a peek-a-boo view of the ocean, or a pretty view of coastal trees. The resort is packed with amenities: pool, spa, two laundry facilities, wifi, clubhouse, dance floor, common kitchen, and beach access. There is also an "Owners Only" clubhouse. The resort is gated and guarded by a friendly (of course!) fellow who leads you to your site upon check in. We were impressed by the number and variety of activities on the calendar for owners and guests to participate in. We had such an enjoyable stay here, we actually considered buying one of the lots here. Maybe in the future.
