THREE CAPES LOOP RV TRIP
Manzanita

Three Capes Loop RV Trip : Newport ~ Depoe Bay ~ Lincoln City ~ Pacific City ~ Sand Lake ~ Netarts ~ Tillamook ~ Manzanita ~ Cannon Beach ~ Seaside

Manzanita is a small beach town that is pretty consistently windy, making it a popular place for kitesurfers. The downtown area is small but cute.

Here are some highlights of Manzanita, followed by pictures:

Nehalem Bay State Park - RV Campground (electric with water, dump station, online reservations), beach access on the ocean side (windy, great for kitesurfers) and the bay side (much less windy), and more. You can walk the oceanside beach all the way into town from the park. See pictures below.

Traveling north on Hwy 101 from Manzanita are a couple of nice beaches you might enjoy stopping at:

Oswald West State Park - Hiking trail, beach access, more. See pictures below.

Hug Point State Park - Beach access, tide pool, more. See pictures below.
