Oregon help please!

We are going to make a trip to Oregon in May and would love suggestions on sites, hikes and scenic campgrounds! Also, any suggestion on roads I should not travel while pulling my travel trailer (30').
Thanks in advance!
Greg

Where are you heading? Oregon is a big state! The State Parks are lovely, all our favorite parks on the beach are State Parks.

Greg, like Stef said, what do you want to do? Wet side? Dry side? Mountains?

The state has so much to offer!

Personal favs are:
Portland for beer and food. Start at breakide brewery and tin shed cafe in NE.

MT Hood
Go hike at Timberline, you can trek on the PCT!
Olallie lake at Mt Jefferson

Hood River
Coolest town in the world, watch the windsurfers, go berry picking, taste beer and wine...

Central
Bend
Smith Rock

Coast
Lincoln city and Depoe bay. Walk the beaches, eat at Tidal Raves

Lots of wine tasting all over.

I5 and I84 are easy.
HWY26 and 35 are easy passes over the cascades
Avoid WA SR14 between cascade locks and I5
hood river bridge is, well, narrow! Cross at bridge of the gods.

In a rush, hope this helps!

Thanks for all the feedback! Have 2 weeks in the state, mainly want to see the ocean, columbia river, waterfalls and mountains.
Thanks again!

Do you have children? Beverly Beach State Park on the coast is kid friendly. All of the Coast has great State Park campgrounds.
Of course, the gorge has water falls, but Silver Falls has Trail of Ten Falls(7 miles, but many variations on that trail optional). The trail goes behind 4 of the falls. There are more seasonal falls in the Spring. The road out of Silverton is a bit windy, but what the heck, log trucks do it, just a bit annoying to those behind you. The campground is OK, nothing special.
Sahalie Falls and the associated trail off Santiam Pass--gorgeous!!
Opal creek / Saw Bone Flats region, but you'd have to park your trailer in one of the many campgrounds off Hwy 20, Santiam Pass. While in that area, go over the McKenzie Pass (not with your AS), see the Dee Wright Observatory, obsidian fields, leaping down the sandy slopes of old vents has got to be one of my most favorite memories. Bend region: Cascade Highway / Century Drive puts you at the feet of many hiking trails. Take the ride to the top of Mt. Bachelor, walk down. -may be snowy, this is such a weird year weather-wise!
Crater Lake--might be too early. Oregon Caves.
The back side of Hood has some really wonderful little campgrounds right on the creek, tons to do on our beloved Mt. Hood. Might be cold in May, though.
Too early to hike into Jefferson Park, but tuck that into your bucket list. No greater artist than God, and that is one of His playgrounds!
You can pull in and park that trailer at our place to do a day trip. We have lots of room and live on a creek out of Silverton and we can pull out the maps!

Check out the above on google. I know that they are opening the Mckenzie Hwy early this year due to lack of snow, but better check out all of the details.

I should have written Fogarty Creek Campground on the Coast, has a creek (that leads to the ocean) and the ocean! Such fun!

Crater Lake! If you are traveling all that way to see Oregon, be sure to stop at Crater Lake. And the coast. You could spend weeks on the Coast. It's all beautiful. I especially like the southern coast. Truly amazing and not so many people. But it's all wonderful. It's hard to go wrong with Oregon.

And since you'll make it all the way to Portland and the Columbia Gorge, I'm sure you won't be able to resist visiting that volcano sitting tantalizingly on the horizon, so pencil in a day trip North into WA far enough to see Mt St Helens, and appreciate the landscaping changes she made when she 'blew her top'.

As stated above, Oregon State Parks are excellent. But, as you get closer to vacation time they tend to fill up. Make reservations if you know your travel dates. Another private campground on the ocean is Sea and Sand just north of Depoe Bay. Our club has camped there and it is about as close to the ocean as you can get!

We are fairly new to Oregon and are still finding great places to camp. We use the Allstays App to find campgrounds and lots of information on each one. Well worth the price.

And... you will want to travel Hwy 101 along the ocean, lots of curves and hills but some of the best views of the coastline on the west coast. Very doable with the trailer. Take it slow and take advantage of the numerous scenic pulloffs.

Coast Camping

Also know that many of those wide coastal pullouts can be used for overnight camping.

If you have time there's some exceptional dry camping on the Metolius river near Sisters OR.
