Great place for a couple, family or a group. My family all got together and we each had our own Large Cottage on the Beach. We had bikes to ride around and fun games to play on the beach. There are nets set up for volleyball, a playground with swings. Water craft to rent. Dogs are allowed but not inside...

Second time there great time and great people always clean and fun. The staff was great, we rented a golf cart for three days which made it nice for getting around the property. Enjoyed watching people launch their boats. Look forward returning soon.

You're paying for the location. It's essentially a gravel parking lot for RVs. The amenities are nice, but it wasn't the best experience. Everyone was on top of each other and so close together. I could only imagine what it would be like during peak season. The thought of cars and people everywhere was scary. We drove by a simpler...

As a native So Cal family, we have been going to Newport Dunes for over 20 years. It is by far the nicest RV Park in So Cal, we've tried them all. Although it is expensive, especially as you get closer to the lagoon, it is located in the heart of Newport Beach and is walking distance to Fashion Island...

The back bay is great for paddle boarding or kyacking. The beach front RV spaces can't be beat and when the store opens at 7am...the coffee is actually ready! Great facilities and dog friendly. You are also within walking distance of Fashion Island.

What a perfect RV park. They had everything we could have wanted or needed. We could ride our bike anywhere and we took a trip to the beach, Balboa island and just to goof around the park. The pool was great, credit card washing machines so easy and the front desk was super helpful! The beach and view is beautiful...

Rather expensive resort doesn't match expectations. Very large RV resort with small sites. Rather noisy throughout the night because of elevated road surrounding its location. Very basic shower facilities. Located near sea and at a lagoon. Lagoon cannot replace ocean experience however. Newport is a bit posh, which probably explains high prices, but it doesn't match price and facilities.

This is our second trip to Newport Dunnes with our Grandchildren. The staff for the children activities in the center just sit at the table on their phones - they do not interact with the kids nor do they show them how to do the craft project? When we went in there last month with our grandchildren they had CSI...

This place has everything! From water activities, swimming, concerts, bike riding, camping, boat launching, and beautiful views. We also really enjoyed their restaurant, the Back Bay Bistro. Very very nice! Beautiful space right on the water!

During our vacation in Newport we decided to visit Newport Dunes as the waterpark and boat rentals sounded super fun. With two boys in hand and an abundance of excitement we made our way to the resort, parked the car and walked about a quarter mile to the kiosk. Only upon walking up to the window (after standing in line)...
