Mt. Hood is the top picture. Mt. St. Helens the bottom one... it used to be a lot taller, but blew it's top off May 18, 1980

We were considering staying at the KOA in Lyden, also. Now it sounds like an Escape party!

Maybe we should go there and we can all learn about our new Escapes together! And then we can caravan back to California! We can all stop at the same DMV ! Maybe by the third one they will know what they are doing!
Did you get pull through sites? Our orientation is at 8 AM on the 22nd. I have to say I do have concerns about the weather.

I-5 through WA is bad enough; to do so through Oregon as well is usually just too much for us. US 97 near The Dalles(or 197 to 97) might be worth considering.
Hi Ross
I just checked 97 on Google maps from Portland to weed. It is only 36 minutes longer than the I 5. That may be due to the one hour eight minute delay on the five near Salem.
Our concern now is the weather. How would 97 be as an alternate route if there is snow in Grant's pass. What is the road like?

In CA we stayed at Rolling Hills Casino, just south of Redding.

Last year while in Oregon, we stayed in Champoeg and loved it. Also stayed at Valley of the Rogue (also nice), and Premier RV in Redding (CA).


Prior to the NOG this year, we have reservations at Premier RV (Redding) again and at River Park RV (Grants Pass) before heading to Waterloo.

Thank you for the recommendations. I will cut and paste them in my notes for future reference. They all sound great! Wish this did not have to be a quick trip!
Sounds like you go to Redding often. We found a nice RV park in Red Bluff - Durango RV. It feels especially nice after a couple weeks in more primitive campgrounds during the summer!

Hi Mary- asked a friend who drives up to Lake Chelan 4 times a year and his thoughts for that time of year was "good road but not safe" due mainly to potential for high winds and possible ice(in a relatively rare storm)as it goes through high desert.

Wondering what those who live there have to say; know there is at least one member here from Bend.

Hi Mary - Yes, we're in Redding quite a bit. Durango does look nice and we're going to have to give it a try some time. Our trip to Chilliwack for pickup was hurried as well so we looked for places that were right off of 5 and had pull-through spots (we weren't confident with our 'backing' abilities ...). We traveled in April and only had traffic in Seattle and Portland ... and it was minimal at that. Have a safe and fun trip!
