If your going to do Crater Lake, camp at Collier Memorial State Park. They have a good logging museum in the park, and it is not too far north to Bend area. Newberry caldera and a nice obsedion flow to explore, plus lava tubes and caves to explore.

An additional question is if there is anything specific in the area we should make sure to see. Originally we were adding Redwoods NP to the trip, but based on what I saw there isn't really an easy way to add it on without going out of the way and just staying a night over there or something, although potentially we could just add a few days on our trip and explore RNP and southern OR coast.

I think on our list so far is Crater Lake, Lava Beds N.M., Mt Shasta(mainly any viewpoints and such), Subway Cave, McArthur Burney Falls, and Lassen.

Thanks again!

Just to add my two cents...we visited Banff and Jasper in April 2010. Weather was wonderful, probably in the fifties, sunny, bare pavement roads and no crowds or traffic. We visited again this year on the way to Alaska, May 30 thru June 8. Again, weather was perfect, no crowds, no traffic, no snow. Of course no problems getting campsites in either park. We returned on the way back in late August and did not enjoy it as much. Way too much congestion, especially in Jasper. We didn't even stay. We pulled into the campground in Banff (Trailer Village 2 I think) on Sunday morning without reservations and was fortunate to get three nights. Banff wasn't as congested as Jasper. I suggest taking the chairlift up Mt Norquay and have a beverage at the top and enjoy the unbelievable view.

Thanks I'll have to check it out. We have been impressed with the Washington State Parks so far and we really like Ft Stevens State Park in Oregon when we stayed there over Thanksgiving weekend and heard really good things about all the Oregon State Parks.

X2 on Ft. Stevens. We stayed there at the end of September this year. I bet that your older son really loved it there. Did you walk out to the gun emplacements? Over the hill to the ocean at sunset?

Back in the mid-1950's my father was stationed at the Navy base in Astoria (since closed down). I was between 5-8 years old when we lived there. I loved, and still love the area. We live in Southern California now, but head to the Pacific Northwest at nearly every opportunity. It just feels like home.
