Talking Boondocking in Oregon

Leaving Tuesday for Oregon with newly installed solar panels! Picking AS up in Reno and will take 395 over to 97 to avoid the smoke. We hope to travel around eastern Ore. and then come home by way of the coast. We'll be out about one month. Any suggestions on safe, non-crowded spots to stay. We like to hike and have a dog.

Camping on Oregon Coast

We like Alder Dunes campground just north of Florence, OR on the coast. It's not free though as it's a USFS campground. Be sure and stop by Bonneville Dam and see the fish. I give powerhouse tours there. Another place we like is the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria as well as Fort Stevens and Fort Clatsop.

Hopefully I catch you time, if you have not visited Bend to resupply on some good beer that is a worth-while stop. Bend can be crowded but it is worth it. 3 barrels brewing and cascade lakes brewing are good stops. They are on the way to the Cascade Lakes Highway... this is a great drive. Great lakes with good campsites, Hosmer lake, sparks lake all great places. A short hike from those will get you to green lakes, one of the most beautiful spots in Oregon. Favorite spot is east davis lake campground. (parts have been burned years ago) however bald eagles love it. It is a flyfishing non moterized lake and its quiet. The other campground is lava flow, never stayed there, solar panals will do better at east davis lake. If the fire is out in Sisters Oregon Three Creeks lake is very nice too which will be a short drive from the cascade lakes area.

Grab a few National Forest Maps for the area you will be visiting... then stop in at a Ranger Station and ask about a campfire permit. "Dispersed camping" is allowed in many parts of the National Forests. That means, no water, no trash, no toilets, no shower, etc. in other words if you are self-contained.... you win!
