Hey Texas. I have traveled 101 in Oregon many times . You shouldnt have any problem. May i suggest you stay at the mill Rv park and casino. The Rv sites are around 30$ per nite and right on the bay . They are in north bend or right on 101. Our favorite spots are 26 &27. They are back in spots but there are many pull thrust.

We have stayed there. Beautiful park with lots of history, trails, beach, and large secluded campsites. Also handy to Astoria.

The Wife loves the Oregon coast, possibly more than home here in BC. We've driven, camped, and ridden up and down it multiple times and it never,ever gets old. Feels like you are cruising along the edge of the world in places. We have 2 weeks in July booked at South Beach State Park, near Newport already...and can't wait to get there.
As others have said, if you have the choice, head southbound on Hwy101, just more chances to pull off the highway on the coastal side. Walking the beaches in the early morning is fantastic, you can walk for miles in places without meeting another soul. If you have a pooch, he will love you even more for taking him to the Oregon coast. Have fun.

We live in WA. and have been up and down hwy 101 many times as well. We hit the Oregon Dunes several times a year as well as Ocean Shores, Long Beach, as well as all the sceninc places on the Oregon Coast. We pulled a 40' Toy Hauler with a 2012 F-350 and have never had any issues.

Enjoy your trip

Hi Texas...,
Just a short drive off 101 near Crescent City is Hiouchi RV Resort: HIOUCHI RV PARK • Crescent City, CA it is just past the entrance to Jedidia Smith State Park on the Smith River.
A bit farther up on the Chetco River is Brooking Harbor RV Park:
Port of Brookings Harbor - Home all of these sites are on the ocean (not the most lovely sites but you can't beat the views.
One more a bit farther up the coast is Winchester Bay RV Resort in Reedsport OR 97467 but you will need to call ahead for this one as they are very popular and often full: (541) 271-0287.
Have a good time and if you can take a longer vacation. It is a great route, we do it every year now a month at a time.

Google Maps:

Highland, TX (Houston) to Coos Bay, OR: 2420 miles on I-10/I-5 and hwy to Coast
Coos Bay, OR to Highland, TX: 2420 miles.

4820 miles/60 MPH = 80 Hrs driving time
80 Hrs driving time/6 Hrs per day = 13.3 days

2 weeks or so driving each way plus 2 weeks in Ore & Wash = 6 weeks
If it were me, I'd stay a month in Ore & Wash and stay on I-10 & I-5 in CA going north and take I-80 from Sacramento to Laramie, WY to US 287 to Ft Worth, TX and I-45 to Houston going south.
