we have returned from a wonderful 4 week trip
Sad to report that favorite Oregon campground Carl Washburne SP have gone to a reservation model- with despised service reserve america.
it's a real shame, that has been until this year 1st come
the reservation model means that everything is "sold out"
There are plenty of no-shows which are posted about 11 am
we spent 5 days ( in 4 campsites) taking advantage of no show reservations.
$33 night 30/50 water, some have dump.
no cost dump station at the beach day use parking lot
This continues to be a favorite campground and beach and we'll be back and play the no show lottery.
nearby Tillicum Beach CG ( Federal) showed plenty of availability on the recreation.gov app, but that too is now on a reservation system- we were turned away (with others) at ranger station
Oregon coast was very crowded 3rd week July, plenty of people camping in pull overs along the 101 and the casino is florence was very busy ( join the players club, get 1 night- additional nights earned thru player points)
we stumbled onto a couple of great new spots in WA- & one in MT
