Fort Stevens, OR

Hedge-Hog and family are out on the Oregon Coast this weekend at Fort Stevens State Park. It's a beautiful weekend on the coast for the annual mushroom hunt and the kids are enjoying ridding their bikes on the 17 miles of paved bike trails. If any of you are in the area come on by spot 258 in the G loop for a cold beer.

We were there last Moday, just for the overnight. We were a bit disappointed the the beach was so far away, but we enjoyed the stay. We went on to Tillamook for the Air Museum (an awesome place), then headed home.

Had a great weekend and the weather for the Oregon Coast was ideal. The beach is a ways off and without the bikes it would of been a nice long walk. However, the kids loved the 17 miles of paved bike trails and even enjoyed the Historical Army base overlooking the mouth of the Columbia.

frankdamp, I see you're from Anacortes. The family and I are looking for a good spot on the Puget Sound for Thanksgiving. Could you recommend a spot that would have a great view of the water and close enough to town to walk to for the restaurants and shopping?

Thanks in advance,

Hedge-Hog

While not quite the Puget Sound I can recommend with great conviction my back yard. Lots of cold beer and an ever ready BBQ.

I have to admit, I had to look up Port Alberni, BC on the map but I bet it's a beautiful place to visit and if the beers cold then we're going to have to plan a trip to see our brothers to the North.

We decided to move here when we retired. Too beautiful to believe. Lots to see and do and many fun people to meet.

Hedge-Hog:

I'm sorry to say there are no RV camping facilites within easy walking distance of town. The closest, which is directly adjacent to a walking trail that used to be a railroad line, but about 2 miles out of town, is Fidalgo Bay Resort. It's a waterfront park that caters primarily to big rigs.

Another one not too far away is Pioneer Trails. The first western group Meet & Greet was held there in spring 2011. It's about 3.5 miles out. There's a Thousand Trails park in LaConner, about 6 miles away. Deception Pass State Park is about 8 miles along SR20 towards Whidbery Island and Bayview SP is across on the east shore of Fidalgo Bay, a relatively short distance as the crow flies, but probably 10 miles by road.

The Swinomish Tribal Casino also has a campground, but it's a rather basic "herringbone parking lot" style. It's about 4 miles from town and close t0 the same former railroad trail into town.
