Silver Falls State Park, Silverton, OR

A short hike from the campsite

I wish we could have stayed here longer.  I’m writing this review long after we stayed, and I can’t remember if we only stayed one night because we were in a rush to get somewhere else, or because it was all booked up — I think it it was Full (in Fall!).   And for a reason— it’s a really beautiful park.  The claim to fame, Silver Falls, a very tall but thin waterful that you can hike behind is a real treat.

Sutton Campground, Suislaw National Forest, Florence, OR

A fire on a cold day

We met up with my parents on one of their camping trips up the coast at this National Forest Campground. It was a wonderful place to stay.  Private, wooded sites.  Ours backed up to a meadow with no one across from us, and trees all around.  The sites were paved and level, and it’s important to note that, though the website says “electric hookups are for small appliances only”, it’s standard 30amp hookups. Lots of trails and some lovely short hikes through the woods, and over the dunes to the ocean. We would definitely stay here again.

Armitage County Park, Eugene, OR

A lovely, wooded county park on the edge of a river.  Not only does this campground have full hook-ups, but they also have WiFi (that works)!  Pretty good for a county park.  We would definitely stay here again if we’re in the area. There’s an off leash dog park adjacent to the campground.
