The Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort and Marina is a 110-acre resort located right on the beautiful Back Bay in Newport Beach. The premier RV Park and Marina in Southern California, Newport Dunes is home to a mile of stunning beachfront property complete with waterpark, swimming, and playground for the kids.

Visitors can reserve RV spaces or book a cottage for that camping feel. Tent camping is also allowed in smaller spaces. Activities at the resort include sailboat rentals, pedal boat rentals, or electric boat rentals that allow you and your friends and families to cruise the harbor from the Back Bay. Kids will enjoy swimming out to Moe B, the whale in the lagoon.

The Newport Dunes is not only a perfect destination in the summer, but is also a great place to spend the holidays with family, whether you are a guest at the resort or just visiting for the day.

Some of the events at the Newport Dunes include Independence Day on the Bay over Fourth of July, a Halloween parade and costume contests, Thanksgiving Buffet, Lighting of the Bay holiday light display, Brunch with Santa, and a New Year’s Eve party.

The Newport Dunes also hosts other non-holiday marquee events like the Russo and Steele Automobile Collectors Show in June and Lobsterfest each August.

One of the highlights of summer for families is the movie on the beach each Saturday evening. Pull up your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy a free movie with your family and friends with your toes buried in the sand. The show begins at sundown!

If you are looking a for a delicious meal with unparalleled views of water and nature, one of the most spectacular waterfront dining properties in all of Newport Beach is the Back Bay Bistro. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the patio or brunch under the sun in the main dining room, which features a retractable roof. The Back Bay Bistro frequently hosts clambakes, jazz nights, and wine events with some of the most highly trained sommeliers.

For boating enthusiasts who have their own craft, Newport Dunes also hosts a boat launch. It is the best place to start your day at sea whether you’re touring beautiful Newport Harbor, or heading out for a getaway to Catalina Island.
