We recently stayed here and second the motion. You can't go wrong with OR State Parks, they use ALL the lottery money for their parks and it shows.

Thanks everyone! We had an amazing week in the Crater Lake area last week. This week we are checking out Hood River and then on to Portland. After that, the coast is DEFINITELY on the list, especially after all these great recommendations! Oregon state parks are amazing. I have been so impressed! This week, we are taking advantage of their promotional deal (stay 2 nights, get 3rd free). So awesome!!!!

Will be heading up to Washington state and then on into Canada in August. I may be posting again for recommendations!

Thanks again!

Fort Stevens State Park (on the coast just west of Astoria) is very nice, Excellent bike trails (if you have them with you). Also a lot of varied sites in the park itself. The coast artillery batteries there were fired upon by a Japanese submarine during WWII.
Also a lot of wildlife and a very old shipwreck (the Peter Iredale) on the beach.
Enjoy your time in my favorite state.

We're on Long Beach in WA ...we love it. We're headed to Seaside on Fri. The state parks are great here. We're staying in a private park , but visited Fort Stevens State park near Astoria . It's one of the largest campgrounds in area..beautiful sites . I agree with everyone the coast is a must.

We are staying at Loon Lake at the moment. The place is FULL of kids, all with smiles and having a ball. We're on our own so it's a bit noisier than we would prefer, but if our kids were young it would be terrific.

They aren't good about enforcing the Quiet Time after 10 o'clock. There was a loud (and profane) party going on until 1:30 a.m. one night, as well as a few fights; just yelling, no blood.

Campsites are pretty good although close together and very open, so not much privacy. The lake is lovely but full of power boats so, again, it can be noisy at times. The staff at the Loon Lake Lodge has been very nice and helpful. Since it's inland, it can get hot during the day but that makes the lake a nice place for a swim.

I agree with Cap-N-Red. Honeyman State Park is really nice. My younger son and I have sandboarded there several times while visiting my brother in Florence. Give sandboarding a try - it's great fun. You can rent gear and get a lesson here:

Another must see state park is Ecola just on the north side of Cannon Beach but don't haul your trailer back there. Rods too tight and narrow but the view of Terribly Tilly (Tillamook Head Lighthouse) along with Haystack Rock is spectacular. Been there a number of times but all without the Airstream in tow. Plan on doing the 101 coast tour one day. Tillamook has their cheese factory tour which is fun but even better is the Air Museum just south of town. I agree, you just can't go wrong in Oregon.
