Oregon Coast to Northern California in the Winter

We are traveling from Eugene, OR to Napa, CA for the Holidays and are looking into taking our Airstream and traveling the coastal route on HWY 101; South from Florence, OR through to Northern California, making some stops along the way and the trip home.

Has anyone done this trip in the winter? Are there any passes that have snow and ice?

If this route is passable in the winter, does anyone have any suggestions for camp grounds?

Thanks for any help,

Hi kintscher I live in Crescent city ca. I can tell you that the coast route 101 from Bandon or south is not bad. low passes not prone to snow, butsome areas are narrow and winding. There is a private campground south of Brookings or, the "ship Ashore" with hook-ups.State campgrounds in Calif inculde Prarie Creek, Humbolt Redwoods, Grizzly creek. But they do not have hook-ups. Happpy trails. Carl.

Isn't that what Rich Luhr is doing right now? You might want to check out their blog.

They have been staying in a lot of beautiful campgrounds along the way.

Thanks Kathleen. I have been reading Rich Luhr's site. Jedediah Smith State Park is one of the placed we want to see.

Tracker. Thanks for the road info. Windy is OK, but I don't want to worry about snow since my truck in not 4X4.
