Astoria

The mgr. at one of the RV campgrounds warned me about driving our
40' DP on some of the local roads in and near Astoria Oregon.


Anyone have knowledge about this?

Thx!

They can be narrow, a lot of tourist, and a lot of dead ends. Otherwise they are ok!

There is a bridge or two around Astoria that are narrow enough that your MH will occupy both lanes, but traffic isn't too heavy and we found that people were polite. I would try to avoid driving it through town on the main street because the traffic in that area is heavier and the streets are narrow, but it really isn't all that bad. The bridge going to WA has nice wide lanes and it was easy, also.

Was there a month ago

We came from the gorge, highways and roads were not a problem, but the signage wasnt too well marked... Windy day and we took a wrong turn and drove across the high bridge into WA... They were working on the bridge, painting i think. Had problems turning around in WA and coming back across. That bridge is really high..... 39 foot diesel pusher with a tow.... Other than that... It wa fine.. Stayed in the state park, which was great....
