"Shade & Elevation to offset a hot summer day"

We were intentionally taking the crooked 2 lane roads as we worked our way across Oregon. This campground was one that we'd identified as a possiblity because of the elevation. The nearby snow park was another possibility but it was locked off for... Read more

"Lots of Choices but this one is special"

The camping is basic boondocking in one of two level areas. During a night in mid August we had 12 neighbors that were also enjoying Blue Heron hospitality. As much as I appreciate a spot to enjoy a free, convenient overnight, that only got 3... Read more

"Old School, low key"

We had our heart set on a few days of ocean front camping at South Beach, but even before lunch in the middle of the week in mid August it was full. A chat with the host there indicated that it had been that way for at least six weeks. So much for... Read more

"Yes, But..."

I've been coming to Fort Casey for multiple decades, starting long before the campground was here. This campground was one of my folks favorite places when they retired. There's essentially no shade until an hour or so before sunset, depending on... Read more

"We rolled the dice and won on this one"

We needed to stay a night somewhere between the Canadian border and our reservations at Fort Casey. While this area is where my roots are, there aren't any immediate relatives left in the area with moochdocking options, so we decided to check out... Read more

"Village Swimming Hole"

This rustic village campground is adjacent to the swimming beach. Restrooms are available at the beach, but only until 10 p.m. Sites have tight angles or require backing in from the boat ramp area, but the price is right. We had good Google Fi... Read more

I can certainly see why this park is so highly rated. Many of the sites are beach front and all are meticulously maintained. Our site was level enough that we were able to avoid unhitching since we were only staying overnight. Nice lake view... Read more
