Happy tent camping news for South Beach campers (2010)

50-60 new tent sites opening Spring 2011

Nestled amidst the dunes south of Newport, South Beach will have two loops of new tent sites to go with its 227 electric hookup sites and 27 yurts by spring 2011. Work is already under way to add the new sites on the north edge of the park.

The new campground loops, which extend north from the E loop, will meet the demand for more tent sites on the central coast. “We’ve had a lot of people camping in tents who rent our electrical sites and have to pay for services they don’t need,” says Park Manager Dennis Comfort. “These new tent sites should fill quickly, and free up more electrical sites for the RV campers who do need them.”

In keeping with the aesthetics of the area, the loops will be asphalt free. The campsites will have woodchip ground coverings and be connected by gravel roadways.

The expansion also includes a new restroom/shower and a picnic shelter.

  1. Will there be any pet-friendly yurts here this year?

  2. Yes, all State Parks need pet friendly Yurts. My sister would love to rent one but they do no allow dogs. This is something the parks need as peoples pets are their familys.
