Highway 1, Oregon-Wash coast-RV Park Recommendation?

We're planning for next summer, but will be driving hwy 1 up the Oregon-Washington coast. It would be great to get a site to camp on the coast. Does anybody have a good state park or rv park that fits the bill? It seems like there are a ton of state parks on the coast. Hard to know where to go?

In Oregon and Washington it will be highway 101 (hwy 1 is a Calfiornia coastal route). One park I liked is Harris Beach State Park, a few miles north of Brookings, Oregon.

We have stayed in Bullards State Beach, just outside of Bandon Oregon, very nice campsite, full hookups but parked in the forest feeling. You can take a mile and a half walk to the beach/lighthouse, nice easy walk. This place was $32 a night. We also stayed at a plce called Jerry's Crab shack(or something like that). It was one of those "hole in the wall" spots, but right on the water, full hook ups, and big sites(only about 20). You will find several like that along the ocean. Cannon Beach has a really nice campground but it was full when we went thru.

Our problem was too many to chose from. We didn't make reservations as we never know where we will want to stop. There are also a few Casino's where you can park for free(no hook ups) or go next door to an actual RV Campground if you are into gambling a little.

Sea Perch RV Park Resort is about 3 miles South of Yahats, OR. It is very clean and neat all the time. There is a LOT to see and do in that area. We stayed there a week and didn't have time to see everything.

x2 on Harris Beach. The only negatives are that the in-park roads are narrow and the sites are at 90 degrees to the road. I suspect the Park way predates 102" wide RVs with slide-outs. I scrunched a couple of stow-bin doors on a rock wall.

We like beverly beach SP also.

We stayed at Barview Jetty county park just north of Tillamook, OR, nice pull thru spots with plenty of room? Also stayed at Harris SP, spots were very tight, when opening slide, was hitting the bushes. Just too tight for 40' HM,

Would recmmend driving from north to south, then all the turnouts are to your right and easy to pull into.

Cannot stress this enough. Start in the north and work your way down the coast.

There are too many spots on the Oregon and Washington coasts to list everything. Search the forum to find spots that have already been discussed.
