Oregon Coast

We are looking at heading down the oregon coast in July. Currently thinking about Honeyman state park and touring around he coastal towns from there. Anybody know about this park or if there is something we may like more in the area. Is there any attractions we should stop and see.

We've done the Hwy 101 up the coast from Cali to Seattle. We didn't stay at Honeymoon State Park. There was a tourist area where you could do cheese tasting at Tillamook, Or. Otherwise, lots to 'scenic-see' along that coastal route or stop and park for a picnic lunch in the rv with a view.... and some neat cg's along the way.

Oregon Coast

Honeyman is nice, but it's a ways from the ocean. Otherwise a nice park. Most of the state parks along the coast are nice, we like Cape Lookout and Beverly Beach, both within walking distance of the beach. With all the state parks get your reservations early, things fill up quickly, especially on the weekends.

Agree with the other poster about Tillamook - see how they make their cheese and enjoy a delicious ice cream cone! I would recommend a stop at a Mo's restaurant for clam chowder, they have restaurants in several towns - Newport, Cannon Beach to name a couple. If you like the touristy towns with shopping, people like Cannon Beach, Bandon, and the factory outlets in Lincoln City. For us we just like long walks on the beach. Whatever you choose to do I'm sure you will enjoy it!

Oregon Coast

I grew up camping with my family at Honeyman. It's one of Oregons biggest parks so can be busy. During the off season there are apparently lots of atvs on one of the loops. Id make sure to read the reviews online so you know when they are allowed. That said, my favorite camping memories are there. The beach is not accessible from the park, but the dunes and lakes are great. Laying out on the dunes after dark watching the stars is amazing.

Not to hijack your thread but we are going up the Oregon Coast starting May 21 in Brookings and looking for comments on the following;

Beachfront RV Park - Brookings

Oceanside RV Park - Charleston

Winchester Bay RV Resort

Port of Newport RV Park

Harborview RV Park - Garibaldi

We'll be out to almost the end of August this trip and will have more places to look at as we continue into Washington and then East into Idaho and maybe Montana.

Thanks in advance.

We had reservations for our trip to Oregon in the middle of July at Beachside state park then we bought our trailer. Ended up having to change to South Beach state park to find a site that wasn't booked already that had some sort of hook-ups. Even then it was hard finding empty spots and that was at the end of April when we were reserving online. We didn't look into private sites but the state parks were filling up fast. Counting down now! 44 days! Good luck!

We have done the Oregon coast 3 times now, and love it. Cape Lookout is our first stop. We do Honeyman second. Its not on the beach but is still very interesting to check out the dunes and go for a dune buggie tour (must do). If you have kids they might like to rent a sand board, looks like fun. We also stayed a Harris Beach the last time there. Great for tide pooling. Our first trip we went to Jedidiah Smith park in California, in the redwoods. Love it there but we didn't think we could manager the trailer there. Very tight. We will go back again one of these days. We come from Albeerta so we do follow the Gorge for a while, also interesting. Enjoy!
