Oregon Coast RV Parks?

Are there any Oregon Coast RV parks that you simply love? Already know about Seven Feathers in Canyonville, along the 5....but am talking about along the 101. Heading south from Astoria, all the way down the coastline. What are the "must stops"??

Fort Steven's is a real nice park. Close to the ocean lot of bike trails. Near Astoria. Most of the State Parks in Oregon along the coast are good.

Carol & Ed,

As mentioned you can't go wrong with OR SP's. We stayed in several, but the one we found to be the best was Harris Beach SP. It is south and close to the CA border. We had ocean views from the CG and we kind of got stuck there spenbing 8 nights. The entire coast is 'must see', make sure to pickup a copy of the Oregon Coast Travel Guide. It gives a mile by mile description of the coast and is a must have (its free from places with OR travel info).

If there is one I DON'T like, I haven't been to it yet. Don't think you can go too far astray in any.

There are many but the two that really stand out for us are: Paradise Cove in Wheeler which right on Nehalem Bay....another outstanding park is the one in Seaside that I think is an LTR park.

We love the area and have made several trips through. The best state parks we've seen are in Oregon and our favorite is Cape Blanco. Two more parks which come to mind are Pacific Shores (very nice but very pricey) near Newport, and there's a Passport America park right on the Kalamath River which has pull in sites so you get a great view of the river and we watched bear frolic in the river and a whale was hanging out just a few hundred yards from us.

Good luck.

I'd recommend Whalers Rest (Thousand Trails) south of Newport and Seaside (Thousand Trails) in Seaside. Also Barview Jetty County Park.

Another Harris Beach fan. If you are a disabled vet (at any level), you can get a special pass from Oregon that allows you to stay 10 days per month for free, but only 5 at a time.

In Florence is Jesse Honeyman SP and also a private RV park a few miles south is Woahink Lake Resort.
It caters to big RV's and has a deck to view the sand dunes to the west, across 101 is Woahink lake, you can fish or paddle around in a rental boat.
Also not much further south are some other private RV parks along the lakes in the area.
More toward the south is Tugman SP that has lake access and fishing too.

I echo 450Donn and his comment about calling highways, "the"this, and "the" that. Where did this terminology every come from lately? To me, it sounds dorky. From our location, if you asked me for directions from here to CA Hwy 99, my answer would simply be "Take 12 to 5 to 4 east to 99". Adding "the" is like asking someone how many fingers to they have on each hand. Well, let's see, I have the five on this hand and the five on the other hand.......Oh well, just my pet peeve among others.
