If you want to go Salmon fishing right from shore and back up your TT to the ocean then you must stay at Winchester Bay RV Resort. Just Google that one and you'll never find cleaner rest rooms any where. Fresh oysters just on the other side of the marina that you can see from the resort. Fresh canned tuna at the marina to take home to your friends.

My first time there I just finished setting up and put my beach chair facing the inlet and we see this fisherman walking to his chair with his pole and this big ass net and I commented to my wife " what's he going to do with that thing". Well it wasn't 15 minutes later and he really needed that net and I ate my words. That's just from shore my friends and they also have a crabbing pier if you have any room left after you eat that Salmon.

Mount Saint Helens in Washington is a 'must see'. In Oregon swing past Crater Lake. When crossing into Humboldt Co. in California you'll enjoy the Avenue of the Giants. Of course, don't miss California's Gold Rush 49er trail starting in Sacramento and ending in Oakhurst, a gateway to Yosemite (where it's hard to snag a campsite, plan booking 5 months in advance). From Yosemite, you're on track to the Monterey Peninsula (the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Steinbeck's Cannery Row, 17-mile drive past Pebble Beach, Carmel-By-The-Sea and mission), then head south towards LA.

If you're hitting Colorado, it would be a shame to skip Utah. Too many National and State parks to name here.

Sometimes you can find openings for a night or two for Oregon coast state parks - but last year that was the section of the trip that gave me the most heartburn that we weren't going to be able to find anywhere to stop!
That said - if you are having problems finding a coastal campground, look for parks literally on the other side of the highway. Those seem to be much easier to get in to. And then if you want to go to the beach, it is almost always a short drive down and across the road...
While there are stretches with no private campgrounds, there are enough that you can also find a spot that way, too. In many areas, they just don't measure up to the state parks, however. But if you need a landing spot, they will do.

Thanks Hattie.

Can we book a campsite and cancel a few days if our schedule changes? I'm concerned that traveling with the kids might make staying on a schedule a challenge. I'm thinking we could book a week and cancel a day or two on either end if the schedule changes.

Do you end up paying for the whole booking anyway?

Thanks for your help.

Regarding cancelling sites - check the reservation tool you are using, everyone has different rules, be they private or public. We boondock a lot in California State Parks; here is what ReserveAmerica says: "Cancellations can be made up to and on the day of arrival. Cancellations after 5pm PST/7pm CST/8pm EST the day prior to arrival date will also be charged the first night's use fee. A reserved site is held until 12pm (noon) PST the day after arrival date. After 12pm (noon) PST the reservation is cancelled as a no show. Cancellations will also result in the cancellation fee of $7.50 being deducted from your refund for each site reserved. Total fees deducted from your refund are $15.50. The $8.00 non-refundable reservation fee + the $7.50 cancellation fee."
