2018 Spring Camping
We took the camper out for a short trip in May. We started with a couple of State Parks in Washington and then crossed over into Oregon staying at a County Park, two State Parks and a national Forest
In Washington we stayed first at Battle Ground State Park, in part because we drive by it every time we go to the Portland area. It turned out to be a very nice park built around a small lake. The next night we went to Maryhill State Park on the Columbia River.
Views of the Columbia River and a drawing of the same by William Clark (of Lewis and Clark)
We crossed over into Oregon and were on the east side of the Cascades. At this pullout they had a nice display that showed the various mountain peaks that were visible from here. Well, visible sometimes
We spent that night at Beer Hollow Campground a nice, clean county park
We stopped for lunch at the Painted Hills unit of John Day Fossil Beds National Monument
La Pine State Park. A big, and surprisingly full campground
Black Canyon Campground in the Willamette National Forest.
This campground was an older one in the middle of some very large trees and next to the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. We found a great site that backed up to the river. This is one of our favorite campgrounds.
