Over the years, we have made numerous trips up and down the Oregon coast and camped in almost all of the state parks along the ocean. With each passing year, it becomes harder and harder to find vacant sites - especially during the summer months.

If you are thinking of trying to book reservations for August, I would start now. You'd be surprised at how fast the campsites are taken. Yes, it is very necessary to book asap to avoid disappointment and seeing the "Campsite Full" sign in most if not all of the State Parks along the coast.

Oregon state parks just this month started a 24/7 online up to 9 months in advance to put in reservations. So, who knows how this is going to be affecting finding sites. My opinion is when you know the dates you want, better go online. In the past waiting til spring or summer and phoning in, and waiting because there busy all day just to answer a call is to late. Driving to a state park and finding a spot on the coast on any weekend is likely not going to happen. Likely not on most week days either.

I have been looking at state park map for camping along the coast in Oregon. The government maps are good but there is no price for camping , are all the state parks the same price?

roadglide -
Information about each state park - including fees - can be found at this site:
www.oregonstateparks.org

A common fee for full hookup is approximately $31. Reservation fees are extra.

Just 363 miles of coast line for Oregon and I have 7 state parks picked. I though there was something like 500 miles of coast line 3 parks should be enough for a stay of 3 days each. Thanks again.

I am now a retired rider but did put in some 28 years of road and dirt riding in my home state of Oregon. The Oregon coast has some spectacular scenery and also a lot of small towns to pass through on 101. Weather can change from one area to another and we found an electric vest to be a great investment in comfort for the changing climates even in late summer. Side roads leading along the rivers and streams away from the coast can be great bike roads but they will get filled up with traffic, as you get closer to the roads leading to Portland. Check your maps, the real squiggly roads are great for bikes but not commuting, lower traffic.

I have traveled I-5 to Montesano to Long beach several times. Once with a RV. Nice drive, lots of country and bay views. Areas south of South Bend to the Columbia river have open fields that are or were farms and have many Elk year around seen from the highway. Done the drive at night and there is a need to drive slower due to all the Elk and some Deer, once and awhile a Black bear.

I'm having trouble finding a good web page for Washington St parks . It's nothing like oragan state park site. I had to fill out a questioner then I got e mail that wasn't worth much . I would appreciate any information about Washington state parks.

roadglide-
Try this:
www.parks.state.wa.us
Click on the "Parks" tab at the top of the page. If you see an email box, simply click on the "x" in the upper right-hand corner.

For other WA state park info, simply Google Washington State Parks and you'll find all sorts of info.
