    Default Taken a RV trip to Oregon this summer

    Thought I would start here for some trip info from you guy to our north.Any thing that you might think of that might be pretty cool to see while we are in Oregon. We are taking about 7 to 9 days for our trip, so if you have any thoughts or suggetions it would be most helpful.

    We are taking a car with us and plan on leaving the RV at no more than 2 RV sites while we are on this trip.So a good central spot would be great for day trips.

    We thought we would do the Rogue River camping, fishing, one of those jetboat trips that run the River. A little site seeing and so on. You know the normal touron crap.

    Also thought about seeing the coast or even camping at the coast.Also keep in mind we are not tent camping, we a have a 40' RV so some of these places most be big enough.

    Any suggestions would be great..... thanks Sean

    Soulnds like a ton of fun. We love the Oregon coast. Do you have a membership to any campgrounds type systems? Reason I ask is that there are some really nice Thousand Trail, Leasure Time and Naco campgrounds and if you have those or an RPI membership I could help you more.

    Default Im not sure where we are going yet

    Would like some suggestions, Ive been to Shaddy cove as a kid. Dads friend had a place on the river that we would fish at and I remembered how beautiful it was. Crater lake was going to be a stop, Rogue River. Would like to find a couple of cool places that only the locals would know , not all of the the touron (tour-moron) stuff..Maybe even cool places to eat at.

    We have been trying every year since we got are RV to try to see something new. Last year we went to Wyoming (Yellowstone), Colorado , and Utah (Moab).this year Northern Cali. and Oregon. Next year looks like Arizona & New Mexico, Wife wants to see the big hot airballon race they have in New Mexico.

    Pelican Pub and Brewery in Pacific City is a cool place. Any of the 3 Cape area is nice.

    I'm just outside of Grants Pass. Definetly do the Crater Lake thing (7th wonder of the world)!! The Rogue River is great to float down, fish, swim, etc... In Grants Pass there is the Jetboat trips which take you down river for lunch or dinner and then back. All you can eat and drink (adult beverages!!), and the food is great!! Downtown GP is great for antique shopping and usually an event in the summer every weekend. There are the Oregon Caves outside Cave Junction as well.
    Gold Beach has the Mail Boat rides up the Rogue from the coast. The coast is great in the summer too when the valley hits over 100 degrees!!!! What month are you thinkning of coming up???

    August/ September, not sure yet. Great info thanks ,although might have to delete the part about the antique shopping so the wife doesnt see that .If not it Ill be ,"honey look at this " or " we really need one of these" or " maybe we can ship this if it doesnt fit in the RV"

    when on the southern oregon coast, stop in Winchester Bay and rent some atv's and ride the biggest and tallest sand dunes in Oregon.

    Winchester Bay rentals 541-271-9357, located inside Discovery Pointe RV Park 541-271-3443 has so you can ride from your camp spot.

    While there, eat at Griffs a local favorite seafood restaurant located right on the marina.

    I think you should use the motorhome in camping so that when you are camping you can travel anywhere you like it. However you can use the RV There are beautiful places in Oregon like Crater Lake National Park and Mount Hood. I suggest you should go to that place.

    Default Palisades

    If you are pulling a boat, one of the coolist lakes is Billy Chinook above Bend, by Culver. The Cove Palisades campground is top notch, super clean, and take RV's. You will not be dissapointed.

    Watch out for the rain. I was in the Portland area the week before last. I only saw one day of sun and the relatives say it hasn't improved a bit. This time of year Billy Chinook weather comes from the west.....

    Yea, it has been pretty wet up here in Portland, but it's pretty nice this week mid 70's.
    LBC is looking good in the 80's for our stay. Had the Cherokee out yesterday with my grandson. Got a whole 4hrs on the new motor now, time to start twisting her up a bit.
