Good places to camp in Washington & Oregon?

Dog friendly preferred.

We are getting ready to finally plan trips with our new TT and our first camping trip since having 2 kids (3yr & 8months). The beach will definitely be one trip just not quite sure where, and we would love to do another down in Oregon to tour Tillamook and Mcminnville to see the air museum.

Anyone have any places they have stayed that you recommend or recommend we stay away from?

We love camping at Fort Stevens State park. There are tons of things to do in the park. Lots of trails. We also like Beverly Beach state park is has easy and quick access to the beach. We just got back from Devils Lake State park its a smaller park but its nice. Not too much to do in the park but its in town and close to shops.

La Push campsite is right on the beach. Not the greatest campsite though, but you cant beat the views from the beach. Can be pretty cold by the water though, and baking hot 5 mins drive inland

One of our favorites is Cape Lookout state park near Tillamook. We spent 11 days there in July. Loved it! Just a quick walk over the berm to the ocean. Sites can be tough to get in the high season (which now goes thru September), especially if you want hook ups. Don't recommend you go without reservations. You mentioned the town and the air museum, also try Oceanside (just up the beach from the park) and the Tillamook creamery for ice cream!!

2nd on Beverly Beach SP, HarrisBeach SP, South Beach SP, and they all have clean restrooms.Fort Stevens SP has miles of bike trails just outside your door. All of the Oregon SP are clean and well kept. If you go to FT Stevens try and stay in loop "J" because it's right next to the kids play area. Pull up the map on all these parks and they should show you where the kids play area is located.

What about near Pt Townsend? Theres a couple old forts up there we think would be fun to visit, is there any places that are great to stay or places to stay away from? I think Fort Casey (?) has a place right there so a lot of the attractions are in walking distance and town is just a short jaunt.

Penrose point state park between gig harbor and tacoma.
Trails through the woods, grass picnic area.
gravel beach on protected lagoon.
1/2 mile long exposed spit at low tide. EXCELLENT for little ones to explore sea critters.
bald eagles and seals are also visible.

One of our favorite parks.

Most of Washington is a no stay state for me because of Tunce! She's on the list of dogs band in most parks and I can't stay on the Olympic Range for love nor money. But do like Port Townsend and port Angeles and that would be a great place for your family. Believe the Hoh river rain forrest you will get wet but it's just beautiful . The whole Olympic forrest and range is beautiful.

Another vote for capelook out..

Other nice parks include Salt Creek county park near port angeles and Crow Butte Park (now a county park but used to be a state park). This last one is close to wineries and the park is great but it's a long way from everywhere...

In Oregon, Fort Stevens KOA is very expencive. $71 a night. Just a heads up. We did stay at Kampers 'West and it is only two miles north and was very nice and reasonably priced.

Newport has a very good aquarium.
