Good news, there are so many great campgrounds in OR and WA that it's not possible to list them all here! Between the national parks and forests, state and county parks, and private campgrounds, you're pretty much guaranteed to find some great camping, whether it's along the coast or deep in the mountains.

Here are just a few:
  • Grayland State Park in Grayland, WA, is a lovely place to camp, though it's quite popular.
  • The campground on Lake Crescent is at Log Cabin Resort at Olympic National Park and Forest
  • Lodgepole Campground in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest is very nice.
  • Ohanapecosh Campground in Mount Rainier National Park is another great campground.
  • Iron Creek Campground in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest is one of my all-time favorites. Huge trees, easy access to Windy Ridge on Mount Saint Helens.
  • Canon Beach RV Resort is indeed a nice campground, well worth the visit.
  • Washington State parks web site is really very good.
Have fun!

Consider joining the National organization WBCCI, attend several Rally week ends and find and join a local unit in your area--it has a way of accelerating your learning curve. Also be a frequent reader on the forum.

Congratulations! We just got ours a few weeks ago and it's frustrating not to be able to get out and use it. We're finally getting some warm weather so maybe our snow will melt and we can enjoy ours too.

In the meantime, read all the books that came with it, familiarize yourself with everything. Turn the heater on, sip some champagne in the driveway

Thanks for all the responses! What a great Airstream community...we will start taking pics and keep everyone updated. I know we will have tons of questions in the coming months so be prepared! My husband and I, in our recent past, lived aboard a small sailboat up in Alaska for 4 years. Have now traded the sea for land and a new chapter in our 60's! Look forward getting to "know" you all!
