Hey all,
We have a 25 ft class c, towed jeep with a dual sport dirt bike on back headed up the Northern Ca coast then to Olympic National Park area and stay near Shelton, Wa to see a nephew. Any suggestions on campgrounds, trails to ride, sites to see? We have a 10 year old boy, dog as well.

Especially interested in Olympic west area. .worried about crowds, never having been there. East side we can park on nephews driveway in a pinch.


Thanks,

Chuck

Chuck,

There are two threads earlier on the matter. I was the OP on the first as I will be taking that route too by mid April.

Here is not latest (I'm not the OP).

https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29866090.cfm

I myself is hugging the shoreline at 101 and staying mostly on National/State/County campsites. Back up if it's crowded is to go to commercial/independent campgrounds (ouch).

I'll be stopping by frequently for seafood, maybe some fishing, smoked tuna or salmon, cheese (Tillamook, Humbolt...)

You might want to post in Toy Haulers to get suggestions on where to camp and ride.

How do you like your dual sport? Is it factory, or did you plate it?

Thanks,
I am the guy on the other thread, read some suggestions and thought might be asking wrong questions on the route side vs attractions.

To the poster about the dual sport, I have both, converted xr650r and a ktm 500 exc. Hoping to take the exc but will see. Xr650r proven stone axe reliable and comfy no matter what thrown at it. Been around, UT, WY, MT, AZ, CO, CA. Does it all.

Lots and lots of places to do that sort of thing once you get past Coos. There are many campgrounds that cater to the dune buggies and bikers and also your jeep. Winchester Bay has a huge campground that caters to the dunnies. Also Oregon Dunes KOA , Also Mrytlewood factory Both located just before you get to Houser. There are really just too many to name all of them. But the three I named are quite popular and no you will not have a problem with crowds. I know nothing of the Olympia area, except there are a lot of people that live there.

Sunset beach is nice but they have problems with the water in the bay lots of times. Sewage and all. They are also not close to any Dunes. Or off road trails for motored vehicles. The Gardens are beautiful but very restricted on what you can do at them.

FYI: Whereas the Oregon Coast’s 101 pretty much hugs the Coast, the Washington Coast’s 101 is inland except for the 10 mile stretch at Kalaloch. To reach Washington’s Coast take these spurs: SR’s 103, 105, 109, 110. Great beaches - some of my favorites; wider and flatter than in Oregon. SR-113/112 takes you out to the N.W, tip of the lower 48 at Cape Flattery.

A nice side trip on your way to Shelton would be Port Townsend. Historic downtown with its Victorian architecture is very cool. Fort Worden State Park just outside town is one of the best in Washington State. Very scenic.
