My husband and I are taking a week long camping trip in July. I’m looking for suggestions on good places for camping in Oregon and Washington. I did a search, but wasn’t able to find any old threads covering this.
- We live in the Portland area, but are headed to Seattle for a weekend event before trekking off into the wilderness.
- We would like to see 2-3 areas, spending 2-4 days at each. Locations should be relatively close to each other (a few hours drive at most).
- But preferably something that is farther away than a 2 hour drive from Portland and won’t have half the NW population joining us.
- Basic camping amenities (fire pit, fresh water) are good, but we don’t necessarily need fancy city-folk style campgrounds with hot water showers, etc.
- Hi, Opal.
We used to go camping many moons ago and have equipment. We even used to go backpacking, but probably won’t this time around. We’re recent transplants to the area, and thus don’t know all the cool camping spots yet.
BTW, I am a long time lurker and addicted devotee of learning from the many astute, clever, knowledgeable, and quick-witted minds at SDMB. (Unabashed flattery doesn’t hurt, right?) I humbly turn this over to you.
