Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, south of Klamath, is worth a stop. I'd stay up in the meadow if camping, easier access. I always drive the old highway through Prairie Creek, rather than hwy 101. The Forest Service camps in Oregon are also nice. I like the Horsfall area, north of North Bend. Bluebill camp will be open through September. Wildmare camp is a horse camp, and a nice place to stay even if you don't have horses. Bluebill and Wildmare are on Bluebill Lake. They are a mile or less to the beach. Last October, I camped at Horsfall beach camp. I was the only one there. I like it because it is an OHV camp, just a big parking area, and perfect to get sun for solar panels. North of Florence is Sutton NFS camp. There are some electric hook-ups at Sutton. Tanks can be emptied at Washburne SP, at the dump to the left of hwy 101 .
Cape Blanco SP, Humbug SP, both by Port Orford, are less expensive parks. At Humbug, there are non-electric sites you could fit your trailer in, and pay less. Tugman SP, north of North Bend, is the last inexpensive SP in Oregon, around 16/night.
The forest service camps are half off if you have a gold pass. The NFS camp north of Yachats also has electric hook-ups.

Just above Marin on Hwy 128 above Philo is Hendy Woods State Park (no hookups). We were just there recently. It's right in the Andersen Valley wine region, and it's gorgeous. Stop by the Navarro Winery, just above the state park on hwy 128. Incredible place of beauty.

The sites are nice and all pretty much full shade under redwoods, firs and other hardwoods. We had a great site, #76, and #77 next door would be good for a bit longer rig. We're 41' tip to toe truck to tail.

One down side was that there was some propane canon firing at the apple farm and/or vineyard nearby (to keep birds away). It wasn't too bad for humans, but my dog went bonkers. It quit around 6:30 pm.

From Hendy Woods, it's about 25 miles to the coast hwy ( Hwy 1 ) and then about another 15 miles to Mendocino.

Hendy woods is a nice campground. I think they have that Hermit trail off that park.. he was in hiding for all those years?! Hard to believe that place is back in there from the drive up. Its like a little forest all by itself. Great pics.

Stillwater Cove Regional Park. 16 miles above Jenner on highway 1. No hookups but quiet and beautiful. VERY clean park and restrooms. No hookups but there is a dump station. No cell service, WiFi or boob tube hookups. I loved this place!

Gene,
You are getting some great suggestion and Coastal Me has my backyard pretty well nailed down. The name of the RV park at the Port of Brookings Harbor is just that. It does have a front row almost right on the beach. If you want front row and far fewer people, then go for Arizona Beach north of Gold Beach. The State has just purchased it as a state park and camping is right on the beach. Near Bandon, Bullards Beach is another winning SP and make sure you take in the docent offered activity at the nearby Bandon National Wildlife Refuge. Coastal Me likes Tugman and so do we but we also like Honeyman SP just south of Florence. The "H" loops has some nice deep spots that you wouldn't have to unhook to park your truck.

How come nobody mentioned food: Dan's Bistro at the port in Crescent City; Salty Dog Espresso at the Brooking Harbor Port for good coffee & bakery stuff; Patty's Rollin' In Dough Cafe just north of Gold Beach in Wedderburn; great hamburgers and fish at the Crazy Norwegian in Port Orford (aka Port Awful) - watch out for the radar car in that town - they mean 30 and it's hard to do when you are coming downhill into town; The little market in Langlois makes great sandwiches; in old town Bandon try Wild Rose Bistro; if it's clam chowder you seek look for any of the Mo's (beginning in Florence).

Oh and have a great time - it's hard not to this time of year.

Bill
