Neskowin, OR

Needed a week out of Thousand Trails resorts so I chose Neskowin RV Resort since it is close to the Lincoln City area. The resort is right off Highway 101 though it could certainly use better signs out on the road. I would have passed it without my GPS to warn me. Getting in requires a code so you will need to call the office from the gate to get it. Pulling in, I was greeted by a nice fellow in the office. When I gave him my hang dog face about missing their breakfast that morning of biscuits and gravy, he immediately offered me the leftovers in a huge container and a just as huge bag of biscuits. Now that’s service! I then noticed there was going to be a potluck dinner that night in the clubhouse as well. Woohoo! My kinda campground.

I pulled into a nice grassy level pull-through space out in the wide open and setup with full hookups. Nice to have those again. Aiming my satellite dish was super easy with no trees in the way. With the main things taken care of and the dang cat happy again, I headed over to the indoor pool and hot tub. Very nice! The pool is heated and has lots of swim noodles floating about in it for guests to use. I discovered though that the secret to getting into a pool without shivering is to get thoroughly heated through in the hot tub first and then you can just jump right into the pool. The rain the rest of the week seemed to have no affect on pool attendance. People were swimming rain or shine.

The potluck dinner that night was excellent. Lots of great food and some I hadn’t tasted before. I took baked beans which disappeared fast. The park staff served up stew. In between yummy bites, I got to talk to others at the table.

Folks that go to this park are puzzle people. At any one time, there are at least 3 puzzles spread out on the tables in the clubhouse. If you don’t finish your puzzle in one sitting, it likely will be finished by others before you get back.

Expect to see lots of rabbits at this park. They come out in the evenings and are not at all afraid of people. Some will even pose for pictures.

Working from this park was not easy. Though Verizon does reach the park, the signal comes and goes. It is very weak even with my Wilson cradle amplifier. I had to buy tickets to use their WI-FI much of the week. At least they sell 24 hrs of access at a time for $2 and the system really does count the time you are on and give you 24 hrs of web surfing. However, the repeater #4 I was parked next to was not working. I could connect but it never brought up the login screen. I had to setup my router and antenna to connect to repeater #3 farther away in order to use my tickets.

Be careful driving on the gravel roads through the park. They are using very jagged rock on the dirt roads and at least one person blew a tire when a sharp rock punctured it.
