“Newport Dunes is our favorite place to stay every summer. We stayed in a beachfront cottage that was well worth the upgrade. Our cottage was spacious and beautifully decorated, first-class all the way. To sleep with the sound of seabirds just a short distance away and wake up each morning with a view of the beautiful beach, turquoise water, and Big Bear mountains in the distance.” – Guest Feedback, 2019

RV Resort

Make us your basecamp for everything Orange County has to offer. You may be surprised that RV travel can be just as luxurious as a 5-star hotel. Our resort offers RV campers access to the same amenities as any hotel guest plus more, including beach access, hydrotherapy pools, beachfront dining, watersports, and SoCal’s largest inflatable obstacle course.

“We are so thankful Newport Dunes is open during the crisis we’re all facing. With hotels closed, we decided to do a cross-country roadtrip from Nebraska to California. Newport Dunes was our favorite RV resort during our trip, it’s literally right on the beach. Originally planning for one night, we decided to stay an additional night to experience standup paddleboarding and the water park. We’ll definitely be coming back for an extended stay next summer.” – Guest Feedback, 2020
