The Oregon Coast is rugged, yet beautiful. Stretching for 363 miles (584 km), you’ll find dunes, tidepools, and scenic vistas. You’ll also find charming beach towns, pristine parks and forests, and historic lighthouses. It’s the perfect place to get outside and enjoy nature.
But with so much to see and do, how do you get started? Well, we’ve got you covered. We’ve put together this list of Oregon Coast RV parks so that you can start planning your route based on what kind of activities you’d like to do. RVing along the Oregon Coast is the best way to travel slowly and really get to know what makes this part of the country so special.
Now, RV camping on the Oregon Coast can cost as much or as little as you’d like it to. If you’re comfortable with boondocking (free camping in places without amenities like sewer, water, or electric hookups) then you’ll be happy to know that there are free campsites in Oregon. However, if you’d prefer more comfort and amenities, there are many RV resorts on the Oregon Coast to choose from.
RV park rates will vary, depending on things like:
- length of stay
But generally, the cost is still a lot lower than staying in hotels.
