The team at R&A Architecture + Design is breaking ground on The Camps at Coos Bay Lagoon, a campground with RV campsites and cabins encompassing 103 acres along Camp Arago Highway in the Barview area of coastal Coos Bay, Oregon. The project, which was designed in collaboration with its client NBP Capital (a commercial real estate fund) is scheduled for completion April of 2018. The property, decommissioned in the 1970's as lumberyard and mill, was dredged to make room for the new structures. Remnants of a pier from that mill can be rebuilt in phase 2 of this project, it was reported by John Caulfield, writer for Building Design + Construction's website. This park for campers and RVers should be an ideal location out of all Oregon campgrounds. 

Caulfield relates in his article, "Overlooking more than a mile of private beachfront, will sit 180 campsites, modeled on an archipelago. The campsites will be scattered around  a unique wood-and-glass clubhouse that can be used year-round. It will offer an in-door swimming pool, recreation rooms, meeting and entertainment spaces." Christian Robert,  a co-founding principal at RA Architecture + Design comments on the design of the campground: "We researched RV parks and saw that many of their designs are outdated and geared towards a specific age group; we wanted to make this a little more fun." The clubhouse will also feature outdoor terraces and decks. Walking trails that lead to water and beachfront activities will connect the campsites for exceptional Oregon coast camping. Campers will be able to enjoy walking along short paths to the ocean, as close as 50-yards at high tide. What had been parking areas have been converted to private camping areas with landscaped greenspaces for outdoor play and games. The campsites are also relatively close to Charleston marina.
