Best Things Nearby: Best Things About the Resort: Resort Experience:Located within a former military base at Fort Stevens, this campground is very large and forested. There's a lake you can kayak, as well as the sand dunes right on the beach--the open Pacific Ocean! There's an old shipwreck there too. All camp sites are near to a bathhouse (toilets and showers). #reviewExtras {display:block;} #reviewExtras ul {margin:0;padding:5px 0 15px 0;} #reviewExtras li {color:#000;font-size:12px;padding:1px 0;} #reviewExtras li strong {float:left;display:block;width:50%;font-weight:bold;} ]] ...Read More

Cannon Beach

This is famous (to me) because of the "Goonies." It's a nice big beach, but it was foggy and windy the morning we were there. There are lots of restaurants and shops nearby.

This is a gorgeous, tucked-away cove on the wild coast of Oregon. You have to hike down through the forest about half a mile, and then the beach appears through the trees. It's a popular spot for surfers and dog owners.
