If you cut through Utah headed for Colorado, close to their board is Dinosaur National Monument. Well worth the stop, especially if you have kids:

Ha-Ha! If you head west you'll need to hone your nautical skills...

The southern Oregon coast has world class scenic beauty. I ditto Sunset Bay. Nice campground, nearby hike along the rocky coastline. Harris Beach is nice but we didn't hike that area. Beachside CG is good with great hikes at Cape Perpetus.
We just did Hwy. 1 in California last month. You will need a lot of time to do that route. It is a slow, winding road but beautiful. A stop in the Redwoods on 101 is worth it. Great walks through the trees. As mentioned Oregon state parks have hookups and showers. California state parks usually have no hookups but most have flush toilets and showers.

Jon, Thank-You so much for your BLOG and posts. You are so inspiring! I'm motivated to get back to Oregon, especially Hwy 138 and Crater Lake. Thanks

Cheers

We made a 2 month tour of the West Coast last fall. We camped at 4 or 5 Oregon State Parks and they were all great . I would be cautious about spending too much time in Oregon because it is addictive. After traveling to Oregon and Texas , we much prefer Oregon and plan on returning there soon . Oregon is 2000 miles from us but worth the trip in our opinion . Joseph H Stewart SRA is a beautiful park and fairly close to Crater Lake.
Plus Oregon State Parks have very reasonable camping fees and many sites are full hook up.

It depends on your camping preferences, but I'd not pass up the National Forest campgrounds throughout Oregon (and Washington). No hookups and likely a pit toilet. However the scenery and setting are usually fantastic.

I second the plan to follow the coast south till CA. We who live here want to keep the southern Cascades, mountain lakes, and beautiful river settings free from too many people. Locations such as Crater Lake, Four Mile Lake, Lake of the Woods, upper Rouge River, Umpqua River, etc. would be bypassed. :-)

Have a great trip.

And...if you come to Port Townsend you could have a chance to meet four other Escape owners (three 19's and one 21') if we are in town:-)

Two campgrounds we stayed at on the way to British Columbia two weeks ago were Honeyman State Park and Nehalem state Park in Oregon. Both very nice and both pet friendly. 28 and 29 dollars a night.
water, electric and nice showers.
