Campgrounds on Oregon Coast and near 5 for the return trip to CA

We will be taking a trip up the California and Oregon coast in September, expecting to get as far north as Astoria. Our thinking is that we will choose 3 or 4 campgrounds (probably state parks) on the coast and spend 3 or 4 nights in each. Do any of you have favorite campgrounds that you would recommend? We've stayed at South Beach SP in Newport before and loved that.

We will probably go up the coast and return via 5 stopping at maybe Silver Falls and somewhere near Roseburg. We like full hookups but can live without for a great campsite in nature!

Almost any Oregon State Park will be great. They're a gem! Try bullards beach or Harris state beach. Both great. Tillamook cheese factory will let you stay overnight and they're super nice and a great business. Have fun

Millsite RV park in Myrtle Creek is a small City Park with full hookups for $25. Just south of Roseburg and great for overnight. Very quiet too.

How about the Redwood State and National Parks along the northern Calif. coast? World's tallest trees, etc.

Our favorite is Patrick's Point SP. Then there's Jedediah Smith SP on the Smith River.
Honeyman SP/Oregon Dunes by Florence, OR., which is on the Siuslaw River.

For many, many years we went to the Nahalem Bay state park in Manzanita.
Every day we would walk down the beach to the town.
We haven't had enough continuous time to get there lately but we are planning on getting back there as soon as we can.

Thanks. We definitely want to go to Tillamook. They make the absolute best ice cream! And both those beach parks caught my eye. Glad to hear you like them!

Hmm. I found Millsite park but no CG there. Maybe they removed it. Itís such a pretty area though Iím sure we will find something else thatís good.

I have to disagree. Tillamook makes the absolute best extra sharp cheddar cheese.

We love Patrickís point too and will actually start there camping at Azalea Glen. We were there last year and had such a great time we decided to make the north coast trip an annual thing. I will check out your other suggestions. We love river camping too!
