Every review I read on rvparkreviews said this is a tight campground and not recommended for anything bigger than 35 feet. Would you agree with that?

Size was the only reason we decided not to book there, since it looks to be lovely. Would love to stay!

We did o.k. with a 27.5 ft travel trailer and a crew cab dually silverado measuring out way over 40 feet, but that is a very good point to bring up, because at the time we never thought we would have a DP so we didnt pay much attention to the site lenghts. Alot of these state parks list the pad length from road to curb stop when, as you probably know, you can back up clear to the curb so the pad is usually 6-10 ft longer than listed.

Thanks for the detailed review and pic's for Carl G.Washburne SP.
We will be leaving Canyonville OR. Monday and will take a chance that we can get a spot.

I understand you were able to get a voice signal with Verizon with your antenna/booster set up. Suppose it's wishful thinking our booster/antenna will get a signal for AT&T.

Oh well, not a deal breaker... looks beautiful there.

Hi Wanabee,
Hey, we're headed to 7 Feathers probably Saturday, or Sunday, for about 3 nights. We're currently in Hawthorne NV just south of Reno, heading northwest. Is it crowded, and do you recommend reservations? Trying to wing it on this trip, except for places like that which could be busy. Maybe we'll just try and get your spot once you leave Thanks!

If you're winging it here are a couple more non-reservation options for you on the coast:
1/ Three Rivers Casino in Florence, OR - they allow free camping in their parking lot for a limited time
2/ Mill Casino in Coos Bay, OR - also allow free camping. I think the limit is 7 days
3/ Cape Blanco State Park south of Bandon, OR - entirely first come first serve park

That's in addition to Carl G Washbourne which was mentioned above and is also entirely first come first serve.

For the casinos check out details at http://www.casinocamper.com/

7 Feathers has about 200 sites and they do not completely fill up here very often. Memorial Day weekend was one of the few times I have seen them put the full sign out. The week of June 17th - 23rd is booked full due to a convention, otherwise you should not have a problem. Once you get here and look around, if you see a nice spot you would like in the future, you can call ahead to reserve it.

A hidden possibility is Camp Wi-Ne-Ma between Lincoln City and Pacific City. It is $25 per night and has full hook up. An important rule is NO PETS - no exceptions. It is a church camp so they also prohibit alcohol, tobacco, and drugs. No reservations. It is right on the beach between mile markers 93 and 94 on HWY-101. No sign. Turn west on Wi-Ne-Ma Road and head downhill.

Just discovered one more big-rig friendly non-reservation area right by where we're staying in Winchester Bay (central coast) and wanted to add this to the thread. You can dry-camp right on the harbor (water-front views!) for $14/night and it's all first-come-first-serve. There's also 2 county parks next-door (partial reservation). If you're "winging it" on the coast I'd definitely recommend this stop!! Great lighthouse (Umpqua) plus dunes & beach in the area.
Lodging/Camping - Winchester Bay, Oregon

I would recommend Pacific Shores resort just north of Newport, it's a beautiful resort right on the ocean, I also think that they have reduced the rental prices. I can't wait to get back up, once we get over a few heath issues.
1-541-265-3750 Is the reservations line.
