Cape Perpetua

This campground is particularly well suited for those who want to use tents. The area is a vast federal reserve from the U.S. Forest Service. This means that the chances are good you’ll be able to find a completely untouched area where nobody will bother you.


Cape Perpetua, OR

The forest is also near the ocean, which isn’t especially common in terms of campgrounds. You can wander around and check out the tide pools.

There are also some rather interesting types of trees you can see in the area and many little hidden beaches that you may get all to yourself, at least for a little while. Remember, you are on the feds land so watch the cannabis!

There are a lot of beaches in this area, and not very many recreational dispensaries nearby, so make sure to resupply and visit Mr Nice Guy in Waldport.


Oxbow

Another fantastic tenter’s paradise, this park has a way of making sure that only serious campers go there, and not just any tourist that happens to drive through.

This is done by having a fee that’s a bit more. That way it won’t be worth it for someone who just wants to see the sights to go there. In other words, the chances that the people you see will be respectful to nature, are much better than normal.

Hells Canyon is also nearby and is a great place to hike, explore, and photograph.
