I am from North Plains. It is west of Portland about 20 miles. We usually camp in Rockaway Beach. A friend of mine has a double lot with 3 FHU RV sites. And he has a boat, usually with an empty seat for me!!!! We also make an annual trek to Hells Canyon for a week. Sometimes we spend a night or two at Wallawa Lake and at the Wildhorse Casino in Penelton.

Hells Canyon is by far our favorite place to camp. The park we stay at is owned by Idaho Power and is very well maintained. It is called Copperfield Park. The best part is it is only $17.00 per night in the RV sites.

We live in Portlandia. Our getaways span Oregon, Washington and Idaho - mostly Oregon, so far. In the Pacific NW we have so many commonalities - might want to expand our group as a PacificNW group to have a larger 'universe'...

Oregon FROGS

I'm a little late to the party for checking in as an Oregon FROG but we're in Springfield, Oregon. We are new Forester owners and have only taken one trip in the RV but have tent camped for years.

We love Honeyman near Florence, Beverly Beach near Newport and Cottage Grove Reservoir although not sure if the lake will have enough water for boating this year.

We live in Woodburn, and we camp though out Oregon. We have not camped in any other state, because there is so many different types of camping, from camping along the ocean to high dessert to mountains, this state has it all. Some of our favorite places, are KOA Warrenton for Halloween, Paradise along the McKinzie river, Silver Falls state park and any new place we discover along the way. We would love to do Oregon FROG, so sign us up.

We have a new Coachmen Apex Nano, first time owning a trailer. Live in Sandy, east of Gresham.

We have only spent the night once in our RV so far, which was last weekend after taking delivery of TT on Saturday. But right now I'm responding to this thread on my iPad from inside the TT, as the kids and I are "camping" in our backyard.

We typically like to camp/RV east of the Cascades. Our favorite spots are LaPine and Prineville Reservoir.

That's some beautiful country, there. I've spent my fair share in Oregon and it never gets old. Crabbing in the Pacific and just an hour the other direction your up in the high Cascade mountains... gorgeous!

I can't remember the name of the lake, but one of my fondest memories. Waking up lake side with the lush tree line and poking up over the horizon was Mt. Hood, Jefferson, three finger jack and the sisters all in one shot.

Pretty surreal.

If I remember correctly it was around mile marker 70 up on hwy 22 on the North side of the road. Some logging road but was fairly well traveled the first 5 miles or so. It gets fairly steep in a hurry though. I wouldn't take a 5er up there unless you've got a more than adequate TV, but well worth the effort.

We live in Redmond. Do a lot of camping in our neck of the desert and woods. Cascade Lakes, Newberry Crater, Prineville Rsvr, La Pine State Park. With an annual pilgrimage to Wallowa Lake. Last year a road trip to Utah for the five national parks there. Utah Rocks! Just got back from three weeks in CA fewer we hit Redwoods, King Canyon, Sequoia, Yosemite and Lassen national parks. Just got back two days ago. Off again on the 31st for 4 days at Prineville Rsvr before the water levels get too low.
Pulling a Wildcat Maxx 5er with a Chevy 2500HD.
An Oregon area Frog rally would be a great idea to get together and share lies and tall tales.

We love Lapine and Prineville Reservoir state parks, they are awesome! My kids learned to ride bikes at the South Loop at Lapine!!!

I live in Bend and just joined this forum yesterday. Today I take delivery of my 2015 Solera 24W. Very excited. My wife and I and our three dogs, big ones, love to head out on weekends to the unlimited areas in Oregon. Occassionally we venture further. This fall we are off to Mammoth, Yosemite and Sequoia with two others in our little moho. Would love to meet other FROGS.

Somehow I missed this posting before! We live in Tigard, but store our MH in North Plains. We have had our MH for about a year, and have really enjoyed checking out places in Oregon and Washington to camp.
So far there haven't been many I wouldn't go back to - we got a free Thousand Trails membership when we bought the MH last year - and I wasn't that impressed - especially since our state campgrounds are so nice...but they made us a good offer for a renewal, so I will try it again.

We were at Nehalem State park last weekend for the first time, very nice! This year we have also hit Beverly Beach, Stub Stewart, Detroit Lake and Fort Stevens.

Last year Cove Palisades, Detroit Lake, Memaloose, Devil's Lake, Fort Stevens and Stub Stewart state parks, plus Seaside TT, Centralia TT and some private campgrounds in Bend, Central Washington and Bellingham. Plus Yakima Sportsmens park.
wow. when you write it all down, that's a lot! We are mostly weekend opportunistic campers (check what is open and then pick something a few weeks out)
we do have a week booked at Wanapum state park in Vantage, WA the week prior to Labor Day (we are Dave Matthews Band fans) which is how we got into camping anyway - renting a MH to go to the Gorge for concerts. We have also talked about Crater Lake, but not sure if that is going to happen this year.
It would be cool if we could get all together sometime - like those east coasters do all the time it seems!!!
