Planning on going camping? July is one of the best months to be in Oregon, especially along the Oregon Coast, because as temperatures reach the triple digits in Central and Eastern Oregon, the coast is almost always 70 a comfortable temperature.
In part two of our series: Great Places To Go Camping Along The Oregon Coast, we will provide you with several more places that you should consider visiting for your next camping trip.
Go Camping At Sunset Bay State Park
Administered by Oregon’s park and recreation department, Sunset Bay State Park is located in Coos Bay and it offers a wide variety of things to do for families including tide pools, year-round camping, hiking trails, and more.
This state park is a perfect place to spend a weekend, or day, because Sunset Bay State Park is rarely packed with crowds and is a great spot to get away from it all.
Ideally, the best time of year to visit this state park is April through November because the winter months are often filled with cold rainy days, so it’s best to come here when you can expect some sunshine, especially if you want to stay safe on the hiking trails.
Alfred A. Loeb State Park
Another great campground to visit along the Oregon coast is the Alfred A. Loeb State Park. It’s located on the banks of the Chetco River and offers 53 campsites, three rental cabins, and a wide variety of trails.
Located near Brookings, Alfred A. Loeb State Park is quite literally one of the best parks to visit along the Oregon coast because Brookings is technically in a “banana belt” and this means that the area enjoys warmer weather all year long, even during the winter months.
Since the state park is located so close to Brookings, camping here is easy because you can get all the food and supplies in Brookings at nearby Fred Myer, or you can drive to Crescent City and shop for the supplies that you need at the local Walmart.
When is the best time of year to visit Alfred A. Loeb State Park? The reality is that you can visit here all year long but, you may want to consider planning your trip because since Brookings is on the California border, the area does tend to have a lot of RV traffic passing through during the summer months.
Cape Lookout State Park
If you want another great destination to go camping along the Oregon coast, you shouldn’t hesitate to visit Cape Lookout, State Park.
Located about an hour and a half West from Portland, Cape Lookout State Park offers unimaginable beauty including scenic views, great fishing, and so much more!
Like many other campsites along the Oregon coast, Cape Lookout State Park offers 35 hook-up campsites, close to 200 tent sites, on-site electrical, water, 13 rustic yurts, pet-friendly cabins, meeting hall and an RV dump station.
Great Location To Spend The Day, Or Go Camping!
This is without a doubt a wonderful place to go camping along the Oregon coast but it’s also a fantastic place to visit for the day especially if you want to go beach combing because here you can find glass floats, agates, shells, rocks, and interesting rocks to add to your collection.
Tip – Before going camping along the Oregon coast, one important thing that you should do is research your destination in advance since some campgrounds have partially closed during the pandemic or they may not have their normal facilities open.
