East of the Cascades is to far off I-5. I am looking for a place 20 miles or so off I-5 east or west of I-5

First, I don't camp, so if you're looking for campground type place, I probably won't help much, but for RV Parks.

Just outside of Eugene, Premier RV Resorts of Eugene. 541.686.3152

At Sutherlin, OR. Oak Hills Golf Club and RV Park. 540.459.4423.

My choice is Oak Hills, and will cost about $25.00 per night, unless you are a Passport America member.

There are a lot more RV parks that fit your criteria, but I've stayed at these.

LeeB,
You may find Valley of the Rogue State Park, just south of Grants Pass to be the place. Oregon has full hookups. I suggest you plan to stop early in the afternoon (no later than 2:30) to be assured of a place, as they are popular and are usually full every night during the summer. This state park is located within a few yards of I-5, but the berm shields most of the highway noise.

If you enjoy golf, Oak Hills is nice, too.

Yes, the Rogue State Park is great and we have stayed there when we are out west.

If you want something more northerly, try Waterloo Park (it is either a state park or county park)....anyway you take Highway 34 just south of Albany. Turn right off I 5 onto 34, thus you are travelling east. Go through the town of Lebanon (a few miles east of I -5) and connect to Highway 20, again going east. Waterloo Park exit will be on your left again...get a map to see the exit.

The park is situated on the South Santiam River, really great location....it should be right at your 20 mile limit.

Hemi

PS: While we live in FL now, I grew up in OR and thus know the state very well....in the future you may wish to travel N-S on highway 97 east of the Cascades....there is some wonderful camping along that route.

Thanks for the hints. I plan on checking them out on my GPS map as soon as I am done here. I agree that 97 is a great route also although time is not on our side this time around....

Lee,
You didn't give us any hints on how far you want to drive daily, and where you are starting from on your return trip from Washington State. So, here are a couple more suggestions that we can personnally vouch for, although during the summer there is a risk of being full if you don't stop early enough.
1. Champoeg: AURORA, OR, Marion County, (southwest of Portland) Private - Good paved access rd. (West of town) From Jct of I-5 & Ehlen Rd (Aurora-exit 278), E 200 ft on Ehlen Rd (R). Good paved interior rds. Last year's rates: $27.50 to $29.95.
2. Silver Falls SP, SUBLIMITY, OR, Marion County. Public - Good paved access rd. (Northeast of town) From Jct of SR-22 & SR-214 (MP-6 1/2, E of Salem), E 16.4 mi on SR-214, MP-25 (R). Appears to be approx 20-25 miles east of I-5 out of Salem. Last year's rates: $18 to $22. According to my late brother, a long-time Oregon resident, this is THE most beautiful park in all of Oregon. I think he was right.

I hope your trip is the best you've ever taken.

We are leaving Olympia on the 8th of Aug. and don't have to be back in Central Calif until the 12th or 13th so we don't have to push it to much... Silver Falls sounds like a beauitful place.. That may be the place to stay for a couple days and just relax after seeing family....

A couple of years ago on a trip through central Oregon on the way up and the coast on the way back we stayed in mostly state and county campgrounds.

With the exception of a couple of older campgrounds, (don't remember if they were state or county), most of them were very nicely landscaped, had hook-ups in most of them (at least water and power), and were well maintained.

I wish Ca. state / county parks would endeavor to be as clean, RV friendly (i.e. size, access, hook-ups), and have as many sites available.

We found most of them in the (Trailer Life ??) Campground Directory.
