I'm planning a similiar OR trip. Are not at least some of the parks on a first come first serve basis? It's going to be my first long trip, and I prefer not to tie myself down with a bunch of reservations.

Hwy 1 from Mendocino to hwy 101 at Leggett is do-able with a smaller trailer. Logging trucks use it. I was almost forced into the embankment on an inside corner when a met a truck coming around on the outside corner. It's a slow, twisty and empty, 40 minute drive from the coast to the 101 and a great addition to your trip up the coast to Oregon.

And might I add that the Oregon State Park campgrounds have to be the best in the world! J

camping Oregon Coast

I have 55' of RV, with a low bumper. I also host the Oregon coast parks. I would stay at, from South to North:
Humbug SP, Cape Blanco SP, Edson Creek BLM, -all by Port Orford, Bluebill or Wildmare NFS(don't go around the Wildmare loop with a long unit, there are two non-reservable sites up front), North of North Bend (no hook-ups), Winchester Bay County camps, Sutton NFS, north of Florence, Washburne SP.
Pull in to your camp early, and reservations are not needed. Check to make sure site is not reserved. On weekends, stop at your site by Thursday, or early Friday, and stay put Friday and Saturday night.
Many State Parks have non-reservable sites, and then there are the cancellations.
I'd avoid the popular parks in July and August -Bullards,Umpqua Lighthouse, Honeyman, Beverly Beach...

I noticed that you didn't mention Siskiyou (sp?) State Park, have you ever been?

Love the Coast, and thanks for the great pics. They brought back many memories.

By the way, Janet and Toast - are you in different trailers? One of you is in a 2006 and one in 2007. Inquiring minds.....

What route would you recommend from Crescent City to Mendocino? We were planning to stay at Van Damme State Park.

Hi Beth,
We are actually traveling in the same time zone~I think. And that would include our first and only 2007 Safari. I'll start a nagathon in the AM (after he's had his toast) to get him to make the change. Expect results in a week or two.
