Bastendorff Beach Park is located just 2 miles from Charleston and the southern Coos Bay area, and it is just north of the Sunset Bay, Shore Acres, and Cape Arago state park sequence along the Cape Arago Highway. Bastendorff campground may be an ideal option if you are exploring that area and Sunset Bay State Park Campground is full, or you may choose this campground first for its easy access to Bastendorff Beach.
Either way, the campground is well equipped, offering amenities such as a playground, several day use shelters with kitchens (available by reservation at 541.396.7755), a fish cleaning station, restrooms, showers, and two cabins. Of the nearly 100 sites, 74 have water and electric hook-ups, and 25 are better suited for car/tent camping. One downside is that many of these sites are rather densely packed together, but if you are able to secure a site without neighbors, you may not notice; alternately, if you are camping with a group, Bastendorff may be a great fit. If your group is very large, reserve the group campground in E loop that has 18 water and electric hookup sites.
