Oregon and California coast camping in September

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are flying into Portland on Aug 29. we are both in our late 20's. We are taking two weeks to drive down to San Diego and flying home.

We plan to drive down the coastline as much as possible while stopping for a couple days in all the major cities along the way. We also plan to venture inland to see Crater Lake.

We would like to camp as much as we can. Neither of us have ever been to the northwest before and we are looking for any advice on places to stop and see, places to eat, best camping spots, hikes, and anything off the beaten path.

If you have been on this trip before, what was your favorite part? What do you wish you would have spent more time doing and vice versa? What's a great restaurant with lots of local flavor? This is stuff I'm looking for. Any tips and advice are greatly appreciated!

Thanks and have a great day!

Josh
