First RV road trip from California to Oregon

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

We are planning to go on a week (7 nights) road trip from Cali to Oregon on the 3rd week of August. There is so much to see yet we don't want to rush ourselves and run from one place to the other.
we will be with our 5 yrs boy and 2 dogs and we like to hike
I wonder if you can help us with some of the questions we have regarding our trip
Here is the general plan with the questions inside:

** Any trail recommendations? and also how do we get the trail we will be with our RV do we need to get to starting point with a car or walking will do ok?

Day 1- driving to MOSSBRAE FALLS, maybe LAKE SISKIYOU and getting to lower Klamath National wildlife -too much for the 1st day?should we skip this point and drive start to Crater lake?
first night in Klamath

Day 2 - Crater lake
is this enough time in Crater?
** Any trail recommendations? and also how do we get the trail we will be with our RV do we need to get to starting point with a car or walking will do ok?
2nd night Crater Lake

Day 3-DIAMOND LAKE and Rd 138 to COUGAR RESERVOIR, WILLAMETTE NATIONAL FOREST, OREGON
3rd night in the reservoir during the morning we will be in the reservoir and then head up to Columbia George
*it looks like a great place to stay for one more day and maybe add to it Mt. hood and skip Columbia George?

Day 4-Columbia River George
4th night in the river and the after noon driving to 101 to start the road back home
Day 5-6-7
we are planing to stop in:
Oswald west state park
Siuslaw National park
Coos bay- Shore Acres state park
Gold beach
Jedediah smith redwood state park
Prierie creek redwood state park
(BTW- are these the redwood parks that are the most recommended?)
Whiskeytown lake before we gets home to sacramento Cali


should we skip Columbia River George so trip wont be so rush and tight? if so which place you most recommended to stay for 2 nights? Crater lake? Cougar Reservoir Willamette?or maybe at one of the Redwood parks on the 101?


Gosh i am so confused
and it our first time Rv'ing...... how do we get to all the trails? every time we need to hook it out to get to the starting point of the trail?


thanks for being patient with me
Effie
