We really enjoyed Oceanview RV Park in Charleston (Coos Bay). new ownership and they're working hard to make this a nice park in a really great location. Used it as a base to explore the coast to the North.

Stayed at Beachside RV Park in Brookings. Clean and while spartan with 30 Amps, it was cool and pull throughs allowed coach facing view of the ocean. Saw whales every day. Went to sleep to the sound of the waves every night. Allow fire pits. Nice park and step off point for the Redwood parks to the South and the Illinois Valley for wine.

Anywhere you go on the Oregon Coast, you're going to enjoy it. We're at the ARG (Monaco) Service Center in Coburg, and plan on going back to WA via the Oregon Coast. Again.

We now have the solar install complete and have arrived at Winchester Bay. I will check out some of your suggestions bradleyr001 tomorrow on our way to Crescent City.

Make sure you head up the hill and see the lighthouse there in Winchester Bay, overlooking the mouth of the Umpqua with a nice elevated overlook with views forever. If you are still in the area on the 4th weekend, they have annual jet boat races about 7 miles south on 101 at Lakeside, my hometown, and a nice RV resort at Osprey Point with a bar/restaruant, game room, laundry, etc. Eel Lake campground and day use area has a nice salmon/steelhead interpretation and viewing area, up close and personal when the fish are running. Heading south just before North Bend and the McCollough bridge is an exit to Horsefall Beach and National Dunes recreation area, similar to Winchester Bay dunes area, you will see it off to your right as you drive down 101. Lots of lake activities and fun for all ages. On your way out of Gold Beach, don't forget a quick stop at the Prehistoric Gardens, fun for kids and adults. Charleston as has been mentioned is a nice side trip with Sunset Gardens a "must see" amazing live floral/fauna displays and overlooking the Pacific with whale watching when in season. The seafood in the area is second to none as well.

Have a great and safe trip!

Dave things have been great so far. Highway 58 was nice visual candy for the drive to Springfield. AMSolar did an excellent job of installing the system and while they were hard at it we took the motorcycles to McKenzie pass and that is real treat! McKenzie Pass - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Winchester Bay is a top notch place to stay and we wish we could of have spent more time there. After we packed up we back tracked a bit and drove out to watch the Elk at the Dean Creek elk viewing area, that was interesting and peaceful.
I think in the future when we come back that way we might rent some quads to take a tour of the dunes, it looks like fun.

We stopped in Bandon for lunch at Tony's Crab shack, food was very good. We took bradleyr001 advice after lunch and stopped at the West Coast Game Park. I grew up in San Diego and the San Diego Zoo was so spectacular that I am really on the fence about what they are up to with the animals at the Game Park, more of a roadside attraction/petting zoo and I guess nice to see some of the big cats but they don't have much space to be themselves.

Tonight we are staying at the Redwoods RV Park outside of Crescent City and this has been a good experience so far. Room between guest and really set in the redwood trees.
