No More Waiting: Coast Debuts Same-day Camping Reservations

If any last-minute camping spots remain on the Oregon Coast, visitors can now check online to see and reserve them.

Before now, guests could book online only 24 hours or more before their arrival. The same day they want to camp, visitors to the seashore can now make bookings online.

An experimental program near the seashore includes the new option. In addition to giving park employees more time to offer interpretive opportunities, maintain park infrastructure and landscapes, and ensure campers’ safety, the idea is to provide campers know they have a site reserved before leaving home.

According to Coastal Region Director Dennis Comfort, same-day reservations at the seaside assure travellers that a place will be waiting for them when they arrive.

Oregon’s coast is busiest, with an estimated 1.9 million camper nights reserved annually across the system’s 17 campgrounds. Eight camper nights equal one camper for one night for a group of four camping for two nights.

Tent and RV campers can make a same-day reservation online at https://oregonstateparks.reserveamerica.com until 11:59 p.m. when they arrive at the seashore.

Due to the manpower needed to help with keys or codes, yurt, and cabin reservations must be made by 6 p.m. on the day of arrival. Calling 800-452-5687 from Monday through Friday will allow guests to make a reservation.

If there are still campsites left, you can book them in the park on the same day. OPRD installs free, restricted Wi-Fi for reservation access at all beach camping registration kiosks. Seek out the login information on the reservation signage. Find a ranger during booth working hours if you want to pay with cash or a check. The availability of rangers varies by place and time.

During the trial initiative, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) will waive the $8 reservation fee for all same-day bookings along the coast.
