Oregon's southern coast is unlike any other section of Oregon's beautiful coastline.  The summer extends to early or mid October, it's as far as one can get on the coast from the weekend crowds from Portland and there are some picturesque groves of giant Costal Redwoods.

Oregon's southernmost state park is 7 miles north of the California boarder and just a couple of miles north of Brookings. It's a terrific place to become introduced to the Oregon State Park system.  Tent camping and RV camping are allowed within a very short walk to the ocean, tide pools, wildflowers and wildlife.

No matter how many times a person visits the Oregon Coast, they always swear that they will come back again and again.  The Oregon Coast has a tremendous amount of natural scenery - more than can be visited in a mere 2 week camping vacation.   Natural bridges carved into mammoth rocks just off the beach, hundreds of miles of beaches to stroll on, rocky cliffs that have sunk many ships, three hundred foot high sand dunes, the list goes on and on.  Then there's the wildlife.  Owls, deer, elk, raccoons, wild turkeys, bears and more.  And don't forget the ocean life.  Whales to starfish, the Oregon Coast has a lot of everything.

Tent and RV camping on the Oregon Coast can't be beat.  Visitors can travel barely 30 minutes and find yet another great campground.  There are an abundance of Oregon State Parks, county parks, national forest campgrounds and hundreds of privately owned tent camping and RV camping spots.  Many of the Oregon State Park campgrounds are situated either on or within walking distance of the ocean.

Southern costal Oregon is bordered by the Pacific Ocean, the California State boarder, and the Oregon costal mountain range.  Summertime temperatures often reach 80° F while the winter months are usually rainy and cool. 

Visitor's attractions include a wildlife viewing, several picturesque fishing villages, interpretative centers, whale watching, deep sea fishing, a shipwreck or two, wildlife refuges, and, of course, terrific seafood restaurants.  Astronomy camping is limited by the typical evening fog, but on clear nights the views are spectacular.

The Southern Oregon Coast region offers the tent camper and RV camper almost anything a camper could wish for.  Enjoy as much as you can - you'll discover that no length of vacation is long enough.  You'll swear that you'll be back - and you will!
