Boondocking the oregon Coast? Suggestions.

After the 5 year wait I finally have my 09 19' Safari LE in the driveway for some work before the first road trip. Would love to find a spot near the ocean on the Oregon Coast (I live in Hood River) away from campgrounds. Could wait until after labor day for a week away if that helps.

Thanks in advance to any and all suggestions.

headed for the coast

I am in Sutherlin, Oregon now and tomorrow we head for the coast and a stay at Humbug Mountain, the state park. After that we proceed down to Gold Beach to explore the mouth of the Rogue River...we have been following it since around Union Creek/Prospect area. It is a beautiful river with spectacular access near Prospect.

I believe that overnight parking along Hwy 101 in Oregon is legal in any of the larger pullouts. We are at the S edge of the coast and see rigs parked along the hwy often - many for multi-nights.

Astoria to Newport to Sweet Home

Are there any boondocking areas away from the road along the coast traveling south from Astoria to Newport. I will probably spend a few nights at the state park near Astoria however wish to gain your perspective before I make any plans. This two week trip could go further south if I gain a lead on boondocking however the second area of interest will be near Sweet Home, OR. If you guys have any input that would be great !

Can't help with Sweet Home as it has been years since being there. Camping/overnight parking is generally allowed allowed along 101. Individual jurisdictions may have restrictions but you should be able to find boondocking spots. We see boondockers with some frequency on So Oregon coast. Failing that there are some wonderful state parks along the way too. Also there is quite a bit of free to low cost camping on National & State forest lands that often touch or are close to 101.

Plenty of forest roads of HWY 20 just east of Sweet Home and dispersed camping everywhere with lots of mountain run off streams into the South Santiam river.

Hello there,

Most National Forest Land will allow "dispersed camping" ~ just check in at any National Forest Ranger station, pick up a map of the National Forest you may be visiting and ask. Often they will allow (or disallow) campfires, but you will need a fire permit (free) and the folks at the ranger station will issue one if you ask.

Good advice above on watching out for your stuff! We were camping at a Oregon State Campground and while we were eating dinner in our Airstream someone got into our tow vehicle and stole my camera. Apparently that night they hit most of one section in the campground we were at....

Have fun!
