Parking lot overlooking the beach with a paved path down to the sand. Bathrooms lock at dusk. Pretty windy but good views. Several other camper vans staying the night while we were there. Parked in the same spot from 6 p.m. to 2 p.m. the next day and no one said anything to us about moving. Would definitely stop again. Decent Verizon service.Report Check-In
Spent a night here with no issues. A few other cars camping in the lot as well. Pretty quiet aside from a few cars pulling in/out earlier in the night.Report Check-In
We Parkin the parking lot along with a few other suvs and vans without problems. Great view to wake up to. Left around 8:45 the next morning. Saw some cars overnight along the street also.Report Check-In

There's a sign 16 hours time limit in all city lot, no problem to spend the night in that parking lot.Report Check-In
Stayed just south on SW Elizabeth, before the hotels. Would recommend it, quiet night and in sight of the bathrooms and beach walkReport Check-In
Stayed here last night. It’s a small parking lot off a fairly busy road with a spectacular ocean view. The sign says “no persons allowed between 10pm and 5am, $50 fine” but we weren’t hassled or asked to leave. Local cop drove by several times. The bathroom is closed from 10-5 as well, but does have 2 stalls and running water.
PROS: pretty close to the main drag and a short drive to most stores in Newport; waking up next to the ocean is always a great experience; trash cans and dog poop bags are provided; no one bothered us during the night; running water in the bathroom
CONS: this is a tiny parking lot with no “secluded” spots and it stays BUSY all night so lots of engine starting and doors slamming; it’s a very brightly lit area; bathrooms are closed at night and it’s technically against the rules to be here; my partner used the bathroom and came back with the following report: “they have a sharps container in the bathroom and that thing is FULL” (so probable drug use in the area?), no WiFi within walking distance which is a bummer since we’re right in town
Photo is the view we woke up to, taken from bed! Gray and stormy but beautiful.Report Check-In
