Where I stayed
Winchester Bay RV Park

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

We had a short drive from Newport but found a real nice RV Park and decided to stay here for 3 nights. We toured north and south of here and found some pretty amazing places. Sand dunes and dune buggies are big here in the summer. There are entire state parks here devoted to ATV users. The noise must be very relaxing...

Speaking of state campgrounds and parks; they are absolutely incredible in this area. I always thought Yukon campgrounds were pretty special but they are nothing compared to what they have here. All sites are paved, pretty level. have electricity and water and many have their own sewer. The camp sites easily handle big rigs and although most are not right on the ocean, you can easily walk a short distance to get the views. The wind blows so hard here that I think it is safer back in the bush.

The campground we have been at for the last 3 days is overlooking the harbour so the ocean in behind us. We can hear the ocean crashing on the breakwater and is a short walk away. We have enjoyed this area and it has been fun.

G&G,
Love this site of yours....we are planning on returning to Canada via the Oregon coast(April)..did California last April! so I'm hoping all this wind is only an autumn "thing" Anyhow sounds like you're enjoying all the sights...Keep it up and we'll see you in a few months.

Now, you are REALLY dredging up some memories. I lived and worked in Coos Bay, Oregon (just south of the dunes) my first winter following unveristy, doing foresty work for Weyerhaueser, on their big tree farm there....think it was called the Milacoma Tree Fram. That was also where I started leaning about drift boats, for floating rivers, to fish for salmon and steelhead.
