Oregon FROGS

I am stealing this idea from Arizona and California FROG groups. I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for all of us Oregonians to state where we are from and have a location to discuss PNW camping and maybe small or large get togethers. The best part of camping and belonging to FROG is being able to meet new and old friends.

I'll start, we are living in the Oregon City area and camp in various areas of the state. We love camping around the Bend area and the Oregon coast, but always open to other areas in the PNW.

We are from PDX area. We have camped from the Willowas to Brookings and from Astoria to Goose Lake. Oregon has so many options to choose from!

We are a bit further north, north of Seattle. We attended the FROG event at Amana Colonies last Oct. and had a great time. We would do a FROG event in Oregon if it happens. We have spent a lot of time in Salem, Tillamook and Bend.

Bob - of course Vancouver WA counts, as well as other areas in the PNW. There doesn't seem to be as many of us, then there are in the mid-west and east. Although I could be wrong.

Coupevillefish - there is a rally planned in Cannon Beach the end of August. Not sure if spots are still available. You can check on the FROG events site for more info FROG - Forest River Owners Group

Eugene, Oregon here. We usually camp at the Oregon St. Parks since they're (usually) so nice. Tried out a Thousand Trails membership last September...they seem to be OK around here, but we likely won't renew.

We live in BC, and will be making what seems to be an annual pilgrimage to South Beach State Park in Newport this August, for two weeks of most excellent R&R. We love the central Oregon coast, and find the Newport area the perfect place from which to make day trips up and down the coast. Gotta love the Oregon Coast.

I'm in Salem and I love 7 Feathers RV Resort in Canyonville. My favorite state park that I've stayed at is Bullards Beach in Bandon. La Pine and Clyde Holliday state parks are on my list to visit as well. For a quick weekend away, I sometimes go to the KOA near Corvallis. Its just far enough away from work that I can relax. Super nice owners and everything works as it is supposed to.

Armitage Park in Eugene looks very nice and there appear to be some nice private campgrounds in the Port Orford area on the coast. The state parks are close to $30/night so for a few dollars more, I'll stay at a private campground so I can have FHU and Cable.

There is a nice park in Silverton (Silver Spur) that is a Passport America park. There are only a few restrictions for the discount. That is close to the Oregon Garden, Silver Creek Falls and wineries if that's your thing.

I work full time but if you had something close by on a weekend I would love to go! I sent an email to the rv park in Cannon Beach to see if they had any availability for the FROG event in August, but haven't heard back. I've been busy at work and was camping in Kelso this weekend so haven't had a chance to call.

Big thank you to SnP for starting this thread. Sounds like a great idea to me! There are so many fabulous places to camp here in the PNW.

Laura
