This area of the West Coast is a must see. Many campsites and motels and hotels for all budgets. Same for food.

When driving on 101 about 2-3 miles north of Brookings, OR, there is a turn-off for Arch Rock. It overlooks the ocean and there are bathrooms. It is a small hike down to visualize Arch Rock and the view is awesome! Hike is easy-

This is a series of turnouts and state parks along the Oregon coast. We stopped at several and was surprised every time with some new amazing sight. Several hikes and picnic areas. Some had restrooms. But all were beautiful!

This is a tough one. Rudy F has provided good suggestions, but I am torn if you plan on heading north along the Oregon coast since there are quite a few places that are worth experiencing. So what I am thinking choose... More

In our experience, most pullouts are big enough for a motorhome but the addition of a tow car would make it problematic, if not impossible. Some of the parking areas for lookouts, etc. should be able to accommodate a... More

I'd have to agree with the others. If you can go further north, you might consider Oswald West or Ecola State Parks -they're both between Manzanita and Cannon Beach. Ecola has several beaches within the park and... More
