There's just one "gotcha" with Oregon SPs. Quite a lot of them pre-date the current passion for long RVs with slides, so the in-park roads are narrow and the sites are square on to the road, not angled like more modern parks. The sites themselves aren't very wide.

At the park just north of Brookings, I actually dinged up three of the stowage bay doors in my attempts to get our 32-footer into a slot.

Oregon coast is AMAZING.
Columbia gorge is COOL also.
For something different, thy john day fossil area and painted hills in North Central Eastern Oregon.

We got our 40' motorhome in many of Oregon's state parks without issues all the way down the coast and elsewhere in Oregon. In fact, we've volunteered in Oregon's parks and that's where we stayed.

This last summer we slowly cruised up the Eastern side of Oregon from Crater Lake to Sumpter then turned left for Mt Hood and Portland and finally down the coast. Stayed in OR State parks the entire way and had no problems getting our 40 footer with toad in. The key was to book the bigger sites well in advance. The Oregon state parks are really nice, most all have power and water and at least a dump station. Have fun!

We are relocating to Oregon this summer after a 3 month tour of the pacific northwest, and attending a wedding in Seattle in July. This is approximately what our plans are, but after reading about taking the coast North to South, so we don't have to cross the highway to pull off, we may change this route up a bit. But we will be parking the trailer at parks and touring with the jeep, so maybe it doesn't matter which direction we go

We are trying to hit all the major metro areas, and several of the smaller ones, looking for our next home and jobs.

WOW, never dreamed we would get this much input. About the time I research some suggestions we get some more>>but that is OK. Keep them coming and we will try to see it all while there. But better yet, from what I am reading it may be a 2 summer adventure but that is ok. Thanks to all of you that have offered your thoughts and experience, it will help make our trip more successful.

Oregon coast; Turtle Rock Rv park, Golds Beach OR. A short walk to the beach and check out Jerry's Rogue River jet boat rides. Nothing like riding a $300k jet boat up the Rogue for 40 miles. Great Rv park, town and jet boats ride. We will be there about July 18 from So CA.

We have stayed at Casey's RV park in Westfir, Oregon (east of Eugene). It is right on the river (fly fishing!), and is one of the best RV parks in the US.

Nothing beats Crater Lake. Take the boat ride around the lake. Great views from the water. The most fantastic blue water in the world!! Have fun

Have lived in OR all my life. All of it is beautiful in different ways. Oregon actually has three distinct climates. We have a coastal temperate rain forest, the Willamette valley which is a more moderate Mediterranean type climate and then the high desert of central and eastern Oregon. All of these are defined by mountain ranges that separate them. If you come to the Portland area stay south of it a bit in Champoeg state park, it is the historical center of Oregon where we decided to become part of the U.S. By two votes. You will be only about 30 minutes from Portland and right in the middle of wine country, with several nice wineries nearby for tours and tastings. In Oregon the things to see and do are endless. The coastal areas can get crowded in the summer months, September is often our best weather at the coast. Central Oregon is usually nice from mid May on. The valley is great from July 4th until end of September. If you do decide to stay at Champoeg state park get a couple of tickets to the St. Paul Rodeo. Our small town puts on a great July 4 party and the rodeo is one of the best in the country. The parade on the 4th is Americana at its finest, a real old west experience small town shindig. You will really enjoy Oregon.

Unless you have already been there here are a couple more places as long as you are headed to Seattle. MOUNT St. Helens, Mount Rainer, Olympic peninsula.

Going to Oregon Too!

Hi I see some great suggestions...my wife and I are going on a two week trip from LA to Oregon in May. It will be our first big trip in our 31' Rexhall

We already are thinking we will stop in Cambria on the first night, then head to Mendocino.

We then want to head towards Bend then up to Portland, then go to the coast and head south.

We are hopeful that we can actually take the time to enjoy the trip, and not be driving too many hours per day. Is two weeks realistic?
