The Coos Bay region of the Oregon coast might be one of the most underrated destinations in the western U.S. When renting an RV here, you’ll be just a short drive away from the awesome hiking trails of the Cascade Mountains and literally minutes from the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The nightlife is fantastic for a small town, as summer tourists come from all around the Pacific Northwest to enjoy the tranquility of Coos Bay. While the town has several great RV parks to choose from, if you’re looking for modern amenities, you can’t do much better than Bay Point Landing Campground.Bay Point Landing Campground sits on the western edge of the Coos Bay region, on the Cape Arago Highway, and just steps from the coast. It’s an ultramodern campground that’s packed with amenities like a fitness room, activity room, and indoor pool. The RV campground’s gym sports a bike, plenty of cardio machines, and a weight collection that would fit right in at a five-star hotel. There’s a game area outfitted with overstuffed chairs, a giant Scrabble board, and exquisite views of the coastal landscape through floor-to-ceiling windows. Its swimming pool is a step up from what you normally find on an RV camping trip as it’s both heated and utilizes saltwater. There’s also a laundry room for washing clothes and a chic shower house to get yourself clean.Bay Point Landing campsites are large with pull-through or back-in access. The sites have full hookups, stone fire pits, and picnic tables for fireside lounging. It’s also one of the most pet-friendly campgrounds near Coos Bay, so feel free to bring your four-legged pal to your campsite.

Camping at Bay Point Landing Campground is all about enjoying the outdoors (in addition to the park’s fantastic amenities); the hardest part is figuring out where to start. Given that the ocean is only a few steps away, it seems like a logical first step. Most visitors start at Cape Arago State Park, which is only about 20 minutes' drive south of the campground. Several excellent trails overlook the sea from the park’s rocky cliffs. Adjacent to Cape Arago is Shore Acres State Park, Sunset Bay State Park, and Yoakam Point State Park - the latter of which has sandy beaches that are perfect for lazy afternoon lounging.If you prefer the mountains to the shoreline, head inland and check out Golden and Silver Falls State Natural Area, about 45 minutes' drive to the northeast of Bay Point Landing. There you’ll find a couple of hiking trails that weave their way through tight canyons to reach two waterfalls that are nearly 100 feet tall. This is a great place for a picnic and is rarely crowded, even during peak tourist season.Love mountain biking? Then you should definitely visit the Whiskey Run trail system south of Coos Bay. The purpose-built system features dozens of trails of varying difficulty, some of which have some pretty gnarly jumps on them. You don’t need to be a mountain biking expert, though; there are plenty of easy routes that are more focused on scenery than technical skills.
While it certainly doesn’t have the name recognition of Portland or Bend, Coos Bay does have a vibrant tourist industry that draws in visitors from all around the Pacific Northwest and California.

Oregon is also known for having one of the most active craft brewery markets, so be sure to stop in for a pint when you camp in an RV near Coos Bay.For great shopping, pop into one of the independent stores near the intersection of Anderson Avenue and the Oregon Coast Highway. Crafts, antiques, and fine wine can all be found here and make great gifts for friends and family who couldn’t come on the RV camping trip.If you’re interested in learning more about the Coos Bay area during your visit, check out the Coos History Museum. It’s not very big, but covers many important events in the town’s history and features informative exhibits looking at the natural resources of the area and how they’ve shaped the economy.Are you a train-loving history buff? Be sure to stop in at the Oregon Coast Historical Railway, just south of Coos Bay’s downtown area.
