This National Forest is located along the Central Oregon coast and encompasses the area from Reedsport north to just south of Newport. Located within this forest is the Cape Perpetua Scenic area that is, in my opinion, the crown jewel in this NF. There is...More

We drove through this wonderful part of the Pacific Coast on our road trip south from Seattle to San Francisco. The road mostly hugs the coastline occasionally plunging inward into woods emerging again to the coast and absolutely stunning views. We had the road virtually...More

We had such a wonderful time hiking and exploring in this national forest. It was so lush and green that we could not help ourselves....we kept stopping to take so many pictures. Plus, it was not crowded at all and it all was very serene....More

The Siuslaw is a great example of a coast range forest with a whole range of great places to visit but make sure as part of the visit you include Cape Perpetua just south of Yachats and the Devils Churn. This is a beautiful area...More

Enjoyed our week in Oregon in our 5th wheel RV and a stop at the Siuslaw National Forest. Beautiful views/hikes and temps in the upper 60's (compared to Portland near 90 at the time!)

We enjoyed our time in the Siuslaw Forest. The forest extends from Tillamook to Coos Bay along the Oregon Pacific Ocean Coast. We liked the differences in forest as it extends from lush to less lush as one gets closer to the Oregon dunes area....More

R.V trip Oregon to California (7 Replies)
Hi, recommendation needed for r.v campgrounds all the way from Siuslaw National Forest to Umpqua National Forest - Crater Lake - Lava Beds Park - Lassen Volcanic Park- San Francisco - Yosemite Park and finely Los Angeles. We prefer national forests and state parks which are not too crowded and still open at this time of the year. We begin our trip on Oct 5th 2016 in Seattle and ending it in Los Angles three weeks later. The R.V length is 30 ft. It’s my second r.v trip to the US with my...More

I'm pretty sure you should book Yosemite first! So far as I know, it books up 12 months in advance, although October might be easier to arrange. Once you have dates for Yosemite, you can adjust the schedule around those dates.

Need an itinerary - Staying in a house for 1 wk (2 Replies)
Please help in an itinerary for our stay in Lincoln City for 1 week. Would like to take a day trip to Columbia River Gorge ... a day at the Siuslaw National Forest, vineyard tour/tasting - need recommendations. We have a large group: My husband 5 kids and their significant others. Thanks so much for the help!

Gorge is a 2 plus hour trip from LC. Maybe you can see it after you arrive in Portland. Maybe spend a night before going to LC. McMinnville and wine country is more doable day trip. Though that too could be seen on way to LC. You sound like the perfect group to go separate ways for different interests. Particularly if house is near beach. Any youngsters? They might enjoy dune buggy ride on Oreg Dunes at Florence. Plan at least a day in Newport, lots of things to do there. Marine Science...More

Hi DV, First off..... I have done the SF/Eureka 101 drive many a time in years past, and always figured on about 5-6 hours to Eureka. From Eureka to the Oregon border (Brookings) it is about 2 hours, then on to Florence in about 3 hours more. That is driving about 60 or a bit above when possible. Oregon 101 is sometimes quite curvy, very bumpy on the south coast, and winds through many towns where one must slow down. That would be an extremely looong day! On to the dunes ..... the Dunes...More
