Special Trip on Oregon's I-5

We have a member that will be traveling with some special cargo in about a week. (You can read about it in this blog.) An excerpt from the blog reads....

I am hoping a few members will share their thoughts on Oregon's I-5...

Siskiyou Summit is a steep pull, due to the time of year, I would try and hit there around mid-day. There are a number of good RV parks on the route. There is a new one just north of Yreka that I have heard good things about. We have stayed in Rogue River City and in Grants Pass. When we came home from the Coast in September there was still a lot of construction going on at the first Grants Pass exit. The Seven Feathers Casino has put in an excellent RV Parkk across I-5 from the Casino and back in a canyon. Free shuttle service from your site to the casino and restaurant, fairly reasonable rates. I hope this some use for you. As I don't know if you are traveling from the North or from the South, it is hard to be specific

I also agree with sharbra (hi-Sharon!)...as you head North on I-5... I will say to make sure you take it slow heading down into Ashland. The curve is wild enough that they have emergency pull-outs into pea-gravel for runaway big rigs. One of our favorite places to stay is the Valley of the Rogue Campground.
Sharbra knows of the construction going on - and I trust her information..
I do hope you have safe travels and great memories on your upcoming journey!

Thank you for the insights! We took the rig up into the Sierras this weekend to practice driving on a 7% incline. This will be our first long trip away from home. We're giving ourself plenty of travel time in order to get there in time for the service on Saturday.

Is the service in Grants Pass? I can't remember if it was last year or the year before we stayed at an RV park, first one to the right off the North exit, We had good Wifi and it was comparatively quiet. Over the past couple of years we have been in so many parks, and I am not good at journaling, so I am bad at remembering the names, but I can tell you how to get there.

The service is in Roseburg. We're leaving Thursday afternoon (tomorrow) from Fresno and planning on driving through to Redding. We thought we'd just pull over and sleep and then drive to Roseburg on Friday. We're going to try to hit Siskiyou summit early mid-day so any ice will be melted. The service is 1:00 pm Saturday so we should have time even if weather moves in that we have to wait out.

I would suggest that you get a good nights sleep in Redding. There are a couple of pretty good RV parks there. Again, I am bad on names and I wish someone would chime in and refresh my memory. Redding to Roseville will be a pretty good drive for you. We figure Medford to Coos Bay/Charleston takes us about 4 1/2 hours by car, a little longer in the motorhome. Because our Oregon base is in Charleston, OR, I am not familiar with RV parks in the Roseville area. If you find that you are in Redding fairly early in the day, I would suggest you go on to Yreka and stay at the new RV park just North of there or at the Klamath River rest stop on I-5. That is a super rest stop.
