A popular state park.
Beautiful state park with paved, level sites. We have a 40 ft 5th wheel and were able to fit into site A41 with no trouble. The sites along this stretch of the A loop seemed to have a little more room around them than sites in the rest of the campground. We backed up to woods for a little privacy. The loops can be tight to drive around as you're getting to your site, especially when it's crowded with lots of people and vehicles in or near the road. We arrived on a weekday and didn't have any trouble. There are wonderful paved bike trails at this park, as well as plenty of beach access. Verizon and AT&T both worked well there. We ate dinner one night at the Pizza Garden nearby which was wonderful, they use all fresh ingredients.

We rented one of their small trolling boats (we crammed with 5 people) , and it included 4 baited crab rings for 2 hours. You set them out at intervals and then go back 15 minutes later to check for crabs. We probably got over 100 crabs in that time, but they were either under the size limit or female, which you can’t keep. We laughed all day and ended up with 2 crabs that were legal. Heck, it was a great day anyway! They cooked them for us and showed us how to clean them, and then we fought over them at dinner.
Patio is fun in the sun, drank beer while waiting for them 2 cook. We figured it was probably $75 per crab, but you just can’t pay enough for laughter, and sharing the day with good friends

First of all...someone posted that the trip to/from Garibaldi/Rockaway was an hour and a half. Not so. It's actually about a half an hour. Secondly, someone mentioned that the train needs renovation. No! It is very historic and old...just perfect for a vintage ride.
The engine is fabulous! On the way to Rockaway Beach we crossed many roads at which the train is required to whistle, and it was awesome every time! That, along with the clanging of the bells at some crossings was great! The train also has a caboose that houses the ticket area and small gift shop. Then there is an enclosed car, an outside car with a roof, and a completely open car. I rode in the outside car with the roof. It was a bit windy that day, but worth it to be outside.
We had a half hour stop in Rockaway Beach before heading back. Honestly, on a Sunday morning in September there wasn't much to do on the break. It looked like maybe during the busy season there are food trucks around, but not this day.
The train runs between Highway 101 and the bay. It does not run along the ocean coast or along any bluffs or anything. It's still a nice ride, but if you are looking for dramatic scenery you won't find it here. It also runs through a lot of people's backyards. It was fun when people waved from their fishing spots or houses or the road.
Overall, it was a fun little trip, but don't expect too much out of it. Also, the seats were a little hard, so if that will bother you then you might bring a pillow or jacket to sit on.
(As always, please feel free to message me with questions about any of my reviews!)

Coming as we do from a City with a vibrant fishing port and yachting area is was great to enjoy the Boat Basin in Garibaldi, together with the interesting retail outlets. This is a relaxing town to visit and we liked the giant letter "G" looking down from the hillside. Well worth a visit.

This place has free parking restrooms and the best part is this is a great quick access beach. Just lovely. This is the kind of beach that kids can play on all day.

What a delightful surprise this museum was, on a rainy summer day in Oregon. It covers a lot of areas related to Garibaldi: sailing/ships/shipwrecks, lumber, fishing, Coastal Indians, guns. There are exhibits on WWII in the area and vintage videos. I enjoyed the display and text about ships' figureheads.
An entire room is dedicated to the Captain Robert Gray, unsung and noteworthy explorer of the Columbia River - before Vancouver or Lewis&Clark. What an interesting life he had!
For the children, there are videos and a chance to dress up in settler or ship clothing, create a wooden basket, or see how the natives carved canoes from a single tree.
The gift shop has tasteful, unusual and well-priced items for all ages; the staff was very friendly and helpful.

I love this store. I do about a third of my Christmas shopping here every July during our one annual vacation to visit families who live nearby. They're kid-friendly, loaded with nifty gifts, shells, shirts, and all kinds of neat statuary. There may be other stores like this in Rockaway Beach, but I haven't felt the need to shop elsewhere since I found Flamingo Jim's!

Not as accessible, but still friendly and helpful. Many places to throw your crab ring. A fish and chip place. They will cook your crabs so you can eat your catch. Near a sand bar so they will set you up to go clamming as well. You need a license, for crabbing, fishing, clamming or all three 82 dollar per year January to December, available here crabbing portion much cheaper. Camp and RV sites available.

Garibaldi Charters offers fishing charters in some of the best places on the Oregon Coast. We offer a variety of trips including rockfish and lingcod, salmon, halibut, tuna, crabbing and more!
My daughter and I were on a trip on the Norwester with Captain Lance and Crewman Mitch for a morning of Light-Tackle Bottom Fishing and Crabbing. It was a great trip! Lance and Mitch were very personable and professional. The trip out was not just...MoreGlad you guys had a good time, hope to see you again!

We went in looking for a single item, but ended up buying three different items, all made of myrtlewood. There were other wood choices, but we liked the unique nature of myrtlewood.
You can spend hours in here admiring the many fine products they have on display, from salad bowel sets, platters, unique bowls, clever and pretty lazy susans, etc, etc. Also interesting carvings. Very friendly cashier. It is a must stop and a great place to buy gifits.
