Pacific Coast Highway Roadtrip - 2 weeks, camping?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I love hiking and national parks. For our next trip (if we can afford it) we would love to fly to Seattle, rent a car, and drive down the PCH eventually arriving at LA and flying home from LAX.

Nothing is concrete yet but we are thinking of taking two weeks in mid July this year. For the most part we want to stay close to the coast, but we definitely want to venture inland for Crater Lake.

Besides looking at maps, neither one of us are all that familiar with the geography. I do realize it is a very long drive, hence why we are taking two weeks.

To save money, we are considering camping as much as we can. I have read there are a myriad of camping spots along the coast. I am curious if anyone has taken a similar trip and has any advice - where to camp, eat, sight see, hotels, places off the beaten trail...etc. Also we definitely want a couple days in San Fran, LA, Olympic National Park, and possibly Portland.

Also, I imagine this is probably the busiest time of year to do this trip, but does it make a big difference? Are crowds a factor?

Thank you very much for any of your tips and advice!

Josh
