TriMoot, looks like a good plan. As you are afoot seeing the sights I might suggest Fort Worden SP just out side Port Townsend...sister fort to Flagler but much closer to town. Fort Worden also has full hookups and there used to be a bus ($1.00) to the town center that stopped inside the park. If you are hitting the Columbia River Gorge our favorite park is Memeloose SP between Hood River and The Dalles on the Oregon side. While in Port Townsen walk on the ferry to Whidbey Island and walk to Fort Canby very shot hike or bike.

Fort Worden is a beautiful park on the water. Lots going on in summer there.

if you do go to Newport be sure to check out the aquarium. if your into antiquing and historical towns be sure to stop in Aurora OR. its on 99E. if you leave Corvallis and go to I5, not to far then up I5 to Salem, aprox 35 mi. easy drive. at Salem you'll turn off onto 99E its about 27 mi. to Aurora. you can then continue on 99e. to Oregon City where you will get on I-205 its aprx. 18 mi. to the I-84 cutoff .this will be lite traffic other than I-205 gets heavy at times but not bad .

Gosh...you guys are amazing! So....

Rambeau: Yes, we were visiting our daughter last year and stayed at Fort Worden SP and enjoyed biking, hiking and walking the beach over by the lighthouse. Really enjoyed it. (Except for the smoke from the Canadian fires)

I'll look into Memloose SP as we'll be passing that way on the return leg of our trip.

So funny, we spent some time on Whidbey Island last year visiting our daughter and had a spectacular bike ride! I told my daughter it was one of the BEST bike rides we've ever done!

In regards to Fort Canby, that is actually right across from Fort Stevens where we'll be and on one of our trip Astoria we'll may swing over there as there's a good Lewis & Clark museum.

Thanks for the info!

PNWGirl: Please report back about your trip and what you liked and didn't like since you'll be ahead of us.

Thanks again for everyone's help, I very much appreciate it.

Ah..yes, we also caught that on our trip last year. We had considered going back there this year but since my daughter's not on Whidbey Island I think we're just going to take our bikes over on the ferry and re-do our amazing bike ride we did last year. I don't recall the trail she took us on..wait a minute..I bet Google does, hang on......Well, I can't find the name of the trail but we left her farm, Willowood Farm by Ebey's Landing, headed towards Coupeville, and then went through this park like area, I think it's on Park Rd, then over to Keystone Hill Rd and it had this HUGE downhill hill...VERY STEEP and it ended at Driftwood Park right on Admiralty Bay and then explored Fort Casey. VERY COOL Park! And then headed back to the farm via Hill Rd which overlooked the water...just a terrific ride.

Very much enjoyed the island and if it hadn't been so smokey we would have enjoyed the view. We're hoping this year the fires will be less and we'll actually get to see all the surrounding mountains.

You said that you were thinking about going up 99E into Clackamas. You might consider taking Hwy 212 east to Damascus/Boring and picking up US 26 and over Mt Hood to OR 35 and into Hood River.

There is Encore/Thousand Welches park in Welches https://www.rvonthego.com/oregon/mt-...age-rv-resort/
and a county park near Parkdale. https://www.co.hood-river.or.us/?SEC...7-B25A2EFB0E02

I have never investigated the Encore park but did look into Toll Bridge a few years ago, but plans changed.

If you come back through Portland - there is no easy way, always traffic you will come through the Columbia River Gorge. Lots to see and do, water falls dam tours, fish watching, wind surfers at Hood River, Beacon Rock, Crown Point, Mary Hill Museum, snow covered mountains etc. As Mentioned Mammaloose State park is on the river, great view of the island with some full service sites if you can get in. We also like Ainsworth State park in Troutdale clsoser to Portland. I grew up in the Gorge and still find new things every time I go back.
