Camping Elsewhere – OREGON

04/17/2011 at 8:24 pm 3 comments

I promised I would blog about some truly special RV parks I visited when I was in Oregon. My RVing guests roam around the country (the average guest with us drives over 3,000 miles on their journey), and I hope some of them have Oregon on their radar screen.

OREGON – A marvelous place to stay awhile. The food is delicious. The geography is diverse. The people are welcoming. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. The food is delicious (did I just hear an echo?). (Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed every meal while I was there.)

Driftwood RV Park, Brookings OR

My first stop was at Driftwood RV Park, at the Port of Brookings-Harbor. Immediately I felt right at home. The staff greet with you with a warm & friendly smile (well, OK, I got a hug since I know them personally).  The setting is awesome. You’re right at the coast. The view … WOW! Imagine having a great seafood feast (restaurants in walking distance), and then strolling the beach with your pant-legs cuffed up. Now that’s not only something you can’t get at my park in Kansas, but it’s a memory that stays with you forever!

The next stop was AtRivers Edge RV Resort , also in Brookings, where the owners again greeted me very warmly. As their name implies, they’re a riverfront park, along the Chetco River, where fishing isn’t just a hobby … it’s a lifestyle! The park was beautiful and peaceful. The other guests I saw out and about were as friendly as could be.

My next stop was a few hours north at The Mill Casino RV Park, in North Bend. I was so impressed as I walked around this park. The casino RV parks I’ve seen just haven’t compared to this. I visited awhile in the park’s office and their staff was very accommodating and friendly. And yes, I also used the casino and I enjoyed wonderful feasts while I was there.

Loon Lake Lodge & RV Resort, Reedsport OR

Not Your Average Spot at Loon Lake Lodge & RV Resort, but truly my fav!

My last visit was to Loon Lake Lodge & RV Resort, in Reedsport. Oh my … now this was a haven unlike any I’ve seen. Now we’re no longer talking ocean view for sure, but oh my … if I could spend 2 weeks in my RV at Loon Lake, I’m not sure I’d want to leave!

I can’t say enough about any of these parks. Truly. Go to their websites. Plan your trip. And then be sure to include any or all of them in your Oregon travel plans.

If you’re one to learn more about the personality of these parks through social media, you will find most of them on Facebook. Their websites will have links, if you can’t readily find them (don’t be surprised if the park owners leave more links in the comment space below).

My trip to Oregon was definitely far too brief. The parks I’ve mentioned are but a few which belong to an organization called Oregon Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (OR-ARVC). I’m certain many more great parks are waiting for you, but I simply couldn’t get to more than these few in my brief visit. I recommend you study up on Oregon and use their website for your trip.

When you’re there, please be so kind as to tell the park owners that the owner of High Plains Camping really enjoyed being in Oregon. Someday I’ll see them again … it’s on my Bucket List!

      I’m so happy to help spread the word! Loon Lake RV Resort has so much variety in their offerings … I’m certain I’d never leave. Clark, I hope you get there one day & I really hope you are as impressed as I was.
