So Cal to Oregon Coast

Thinking of heading north in June for a couple of weeks. Been to Oregon and beyond many times, but we haven't done the Oregon Coast. Would still like to stay at some interior spots, like Seven Feathers RV Resort, maybe Bend, etc. I'm always looking for something I haven't seen...for some reason, I can't get real excited about going to Oregon this time ("been there done that" feeling?) Ha! Would really love to go to New England or Florida, but don't have enough time in June. Hubby suggested Oregon Coast. Any tips, recommendations to make me REALLY want to go up there? We usually head up on the 5, but have done the 101, etc; many times too. We like Benbow RV park up near Garberville, CA as hubby likes the golf course there. What about Crown Villa RV in OR??
Any ideas?

The Oregon coast in June will most likely be rainy. We really don't count on seeing good weather on the coast until after the 4th of July. Living in Oregon we can pick and choose our trips to the coast around the weather; you most likely won't have that option. I would recommend Central or Eastern Oregon for June trips.

Welcome to Oregon. Stay off the coast until September, That when the truly great weather starts. As for Central/eastern part of the state, there are many many places to explore from the High Desert museum south of Bend, lava caves, lava cast forest to Cam Wa Chang in Lagrande. You could literally spend a month in that part of the state and not see it all.
If you do decide on the coast US101 is best driven north to south. Speed up I5 to north of Portland and take US30 over to Astoria to start your tour of US101.

Lived in Lincoln City for 3 years. It's beautiful when it's beautiful. You never know what you could get on any day. Lot's of Oregonians just enjoy the coast not matter rain, wind or shine. If you're coming up I-5 through the Willamette valley, Salem has a couple of very nice RV parks - Premier RV in west Salem on highway 22 and He He Illihee just off of the Portland Road I-5 exit. Great pool, spa, etc. Hope you have a great trip. We are heading out to Sea & Sand just south of Lincoln City/North of Depoe bay for a 3 day weekend in mid-June. Hoping the weather will be nice, but it it's not, well just stay inside and enjoy it anyway. It's a great chance of pace.
