RV Park Review: Humbug Mountain State Park, Port Orford, OR

May 20 - May 30 (11 days) - Humbug Mtn. State Park, Port Orford, OR
Our last day at Humbug Mtn. State Park and we saw the sun! The forecast for the next week are sunny skies and in the high 60's to 70's. But, we won't be there. The majority of our time here was overcast and anywhere from morning rain, to drizzle all day, to hard rain all day. We've had a very relaxing time inside. I did a lot of reading since the internet was sooooooo sloooooooow.
We took advantage of our one nice day and we each took a dog and went on separate hikes. Scott took Devin on the Humbug Mtn. Trail which went up Humbug Mountain. and I took Lyla onto Oregon Coastal Trail.  Scott's trail was pretty steep uphill, on a beautiful rainforest feel trail.  My trail was a short trek through some forest, over a little wooden bridge and then onto a paved closed road. It was a good workout since it kept going up and up and up. I had no idea where it led, so after 45 minutes I'd had enough of uphill and turned back the way I came.
Below are some sites along my  walk.
Clover along the side of road

Ferns & moss covered trees

Spotted slug
My final two frying pan protectors.
Can you see the paw print?

Now on to fingerless gloves to keep my hands warm when I'm outside on a cool day on the computer.
I'm always interested in sites that give info on RV Parks. It's even nicer if lots of photos are included to get a better feel of the layout of the park and sites.
I recently discovered Campsite photos which is a work in progress, trying to have a photo of every site in public and private campgrounds.
Campground Views is a YouTube channel that has videos of driving through RV parks & campgrounds.

Our rating 4 out of 5
Very small, casual place. We stopped here because of the good reviews on Yelp.
The fish & chips were great. Well, the fish was very good. Nice batter fried, buttery white fish. The chips were french fries, not thick chips and were average.
The combo platter was also very good. Combo consisted of fish, prawn, & clams (with fries). All three items were great. The clams were not rubbery or chewy.
Side of coleslaw was good. The tartar sauce was excellent! Different than normal tartar sauce. I believe they added dill weed to it. I love dill weed.

I had to try their pie. I opted for Marionberry-Raspberry Pie a la mode. The fruit filling was substantial and delicious. The crust was homemade but needs improvement.
We went back later in the week for Fish & Chips take-out. Really good fish.

$20./night Site #22

SITES: Decent sized, paved. What made them nice were the bushes separating the sites. Many sites are too short for long RV's, so be careful what you choose.
HOOK UPS: Water & Electric (50amp), Dump station close by
BATHROOMS: Nice & clean. Separate showers.
PETS: Very pet friendly. Poop bags supplied, lots of trails and the beach to walk dogs.
WIFI: No. Free WiFi in town at Shoreline Motel.
VERIZON INTERNET: Very slow to non-existent
AT&T PHONE: No signal
ACTIVITIES: Some ranger programs for kids. Beach within walking distance and hiking.
AREA/TOWN/SIGHTS: Very small town, but a few decent restaurants. WiFi available at many restaurants. And of course, the Pacific Ocean within walking distance.
Overall, a nice quiet park. Loop closer to Ocean has more shade and some pull thrus.
