The Oceanside Cabin Motor Court is a campground that first appears in the episode "Swear" in AMC's The Walking Dead. It is grounded in Virginia, and is near a small beach. It is the shelter for the same-called group formerly led by a woman named Natania and currently led by her granddaughter Cyndie and is home to at least 84 people.

Pre-Apocalypse

The Oceanside Cabin Motor Court was a campground located near a bay. It was presumably used to provide a recreational ground for families who seek to spend an outdoor weekend vacation by the sea, and has plenty of cabins for hospitality and storing outdoor equipment, as well as some recreational facilities. It is unknown if the campsite was occupied when the apocalypse started, if it was abandoned, its foremost occupants died inside, or worse, invaded and expelled/annhilated by its current inhabitants.

Post-Apocalypse

After the apocalypse began, the campground was either abandoned, overrun, or used as a refuge. Eventually, the surviving members of Natania's group took up residence at the motor court and set up defenses to secure it. Since then, the group has been living peacefully at Oceanside.

Encounter with Alexandria

Cyndie and Rachel found Tara unconscious on a nearby beach. Rachel wanted to kill her. Cyndie, who is older, said no. After waking up, Tara secretly followed them to Oceanside, where she was captured. Once Tara made it clear she wasn't a threat, she revealed to Natania that she and the Alexandrians fought the Saviors and thought they had won, not knowing that it was only an outpost. Negan and his men found them and forced Alexandria to work for the Saviors. Seeing value in Tara, Natania wanted her to stay. But Tara wanted to return to her girlfriend Denise and Alexandria. She insisted the two communities could work together. While Natania ostensibly agreed to have Tara and two escorts Kathy and Beatrice go to Alexandria for negotiations, the truth was she had informed guides to kill Tara on the way. Instead, Tara escaped the assassination attempt with help from Cyndie. Cyndie later helped Tara cross a bridge where she and Heath had gotten separated while on an earlier scavenging run. Tara ultimately escaped and got back to Alexandria while Cyndie was returned to Oceanside. It is unknown whether she got punished for helping Tara.

Tara later tells Rick Grimes about Oceanside and the decision is made to steal all of Oceanside's guns to use against the Saviors. Tara first tries to convince Natania to have Oceanside join with Alexandria against the Saviors, but she refuses after the disaster of the last time. As the Alexandrians round up the Oceanside residents, Natania tries to use Tara as a hostage to force the Alexandrians to leave without the Oceanside guns. As the standoff continues, a walker herd approaches Oceanside and Cyndie knocks Natania out. Working together, the Alexandrians and some of the Oceanside residents take out the walker herd without losing anyone themselves, but Natania continues to refuse to join the fight against the Saviors. As a result, the Alexandrians take every single one of Oceanside's guns, leaving them with none to defend themselves with.

War with the Saviors

As the war with the Saviors heats up, Aaron and Enid decide to see if they can enlist the help of Oceanside. Unable to bring them guns, Enid decides to bring them a truck from a whiskey distillery instead. As Aaron and Enid wait near the truck at night, Aaron spots a figure near the truck and goes to investigate. Aaron is attacked by Natania who goes to kill him after stating that he shouldn't have come. Before Natania can kill Aaron, she is shot by Enid to save him. Aaron and Enid are then surrounded by Oceanside residents, now armed with makeshift spears. Cyndie checks on her grandmother and discovers to her grief that Natania was killed by Enid's shot.

Though the other women urge Cyndie to kill the two outsiders, Cyndie is convinced to release them instead. While Aaron sends Enid back to the Hilltop, he chooses to remain in the woods around Oceanside in hopes of convincing the women to join the fight. Aaron spends days in the forest, spotted several times by the women who otherwise ignore him. Following a fight between Aaron and a small group of walkers, the exhausted and weak Aaron is found by the women of Oceanside who he urges to help them fight the Saviors for all that the Saviors have done to them and for what the Saviors have turned them into.

Convinced by Aaron's words, the women of Oceanside rush to the aid of the Hilltop. Aaron and the women arrive as a group of Saviors prepare to attack the compound. Before Tara, Alden and the other Savior defectors can attack, the women of Oceanside and Aaron firebomb the enemy Saviors, killing them and preventing a battle while buying time for the people of the Hilltop to escape.

The New World and Retribution

A year and a half after the war with the Saviors, Oceanside remains connected to the other communities and aids with the reconstruction of a damaged bridge. When several Saviors are mysteriously murdered, its revealed that the women of Oceanside are the killers. Their targets are the Saviors who attacked their community alongside Simon, having been inspired to take retribution following Maggie's execution of Gregory. Each Savior was taken to the facility where Oceanside resided before the massacre and executed. Amongst those executed were Justin who killed Beatrice's husband and Arat who killed Cyndie's brother. The women were found by Maggie and Daryl in the process of executing Arat who they stated was their last target and the two chose not to intervene. Rachel at least took part in Maggie and Daryl's subsequent plan to kill Negan.

Six years later, Rodney mentions Oceanside as still active and thriving, and still a woman-only community. Ezekiel attempts to bring the group and the communities back together with a fair, where each community leader, including Oceanside would sign a charter that agrees that each of the four remaining communities will agree to trade with and aid one another, promoting the re-establishment of society, and honoring Rick's legacy. During the fair, Rachel signs the charter on behalf of Oceanside, making it part of the Coalition. Rachel later suggests using Oceanside's beach for training purposes for the conflict with the Whisperers.
