Rivet Oregon Coast Trip

Will be leaving in a few weeks from So. Cal. to Oregon Coast. Staying at Beverly Beach State Park. Has anyone made a similiar trip? Wondering how long it took. Also anyone ever stay at this State park? Wondering also about other things to do on Oregon Coast.

The Oregon coast is a great place to visit or live. The state parks are really nice. Are you going up the coast all the way both ways or are you taking 101 or I-5 one way to or fro. From Los Angeles on I-5 to the Oregon boarder is about a 12 to 13 hour drive.
To get to the Oregon / California coast to Crescent City use 199 out of Grants Pass.
Grants Pass to the coast is 90 minutes. That seems to be the easiest route.

Kitchy tourist trap....Trees of Mystery. It is where Paul Bunyan and friends are carved in wood. Then there is the SeaLion Caves. Amazing to see so many of them all in one place.

Couldn't help you with coastal campgrounds, but sheer driving time is about a day and a half, if you step on it.

Sea Lion Caves is a must see. Prehistoric Gardens, south of Port Orford is a pleasant and brief break. The gardens at Shore Acres State Park in Charleston (nice campground at Sunset Bay State Park) outside of Bend is nice too. Any lighthouse... Jamie

There are so many things to do and places to see here on the Oregon Coast. Depending on how far up you start there is the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, Sea Lion Caves on the way south to Florence, Lighthouses galore all the way down, and small but fun amusement park just south of Florence. The Umpqua Discovery Center is a wonderfull place to check out and Elk viewing area can have as many as 50 Elk at a time in Reedsport, Fishing village and dunes at Winchester Bay you've got to eat at Fishpatricks Cafe and stop by the Umpuqa Lighthouse as they offer tours they are short but what a great view. If you like taking a 4-wheeler out they are available for rent at a number of places along the dunes between Winchester Bay and North Bend. Coos Bay is the largest city on the coast in Oregon with plenty to see and do there.

If you have any questions shoot.

Patrick's Point/Trinidad area of Northern CA
Gold Beach and campgrounds on the Rogue River
Any Oregon State or COunty Park along coast
KOA in Waldport on hill over river and beach
Tillamook for Air Museum and Cheese factory..

Dress warm, make sure heater is working!

I would agree with John that ANY Oregon State Park on the coast is awesome without a doubt. BUT, with that said, Beverly Beach is one of the nicest, some would say the BEST. It has beach access under the highway and the campground is along a creek in the coastal woods with nature paths. Absolutely a BEAUTIFUL place and these days the crowds will be gone. And Newport is one of my favorite towns on the coast. Actullay love that whole part of the coast. Can't go wrong for a day trip either up or down the coast or even inland along a river. Enjoy.

There are a ton of places to see on the Oregon coast.

Sea Lion Caves
Oregon Dunes in Florence
Oregon Coast aquarium in Newport
Newport's historic old bay front and shops
Depot Bay, worlds smallest harbor

The list goes on and on.

Beverly Beach park is very nice and very popular. Consistantly one of the busiest parks in Oregon along with Fort Stevens on the north coast. Another one i like is South shore state park, south of Newport.
