Oregon has a number of camping spots that could be quite fun.

Oregon has a number of camping spots that could be quite fun.

The Pacific Northwest is filled with some great activities, whether you live in the city or the suburbs. This region's climate can make it quite enjoyable to explore the outdoors, and if you like going on trips to do just that, you may be in luck. If your moving company is bringing your belongings to Oregon, you may be in for a treat. Many different camping locales are available when you arrive, and several could be great ways to get away from the working world for a mini vacation.

Cape Perpetua
One spot where you may want to start your camping quest is located in the Siuslaw National Forest. Here, you can hang out at Cape Perpetua, which was more than 35 campsites, according to The Oregonian. It is located in the central part of the state's coast, and its closest town is Yachats. This can offer you a great view of the ocean from the site, which can be a unique camping experience. There is also a little beach at this campground, which can be a nice place to explore during your visit.

Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge
Another camping area that may be of interest to you and your family is in the Southeastern portion of the state. Head out to Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge, and you will come across a spot that is one of the more out of the way areas in the state. However, according to Moon.com, this is definitely a good idea, due to its traversable terrain by both mountain bike and on foot. This spot also has hot springs, which may be a bit of a different experience from many campgrounds you have traveled to in the past.

Cascadia State Park
If you want a spot that has a good amount of history, as well as people to show you around, then consider camping at Cascadia State Park. This is located in western Oregon, and according to The Oregonian, it has 25 campsites. There is a notable amount of rock art from its former ancient inhabitants, and you can go with a park ranger on a tour of these areas to get the full experience. It also has a hiking trail in the area that is nearly one mile long that leads up to a waterfall.

Cape Blanco State Park
Heading up toward Port Orford will put you in the area of both Humbug Mountain and Cape Blanco State Park. According to Moon.com, this is the westernmost point of the Beaver State, and this location is one of the more picturesque coastal locations available. Not only can you camp, but there are trails that will lead you right to the beach, as well as the local lighthouse. Keep in mind, while the location can be quite fun and enjoyable, it has a habit of getting windy, as many coastal areas in Oregon can be.

Green Mountain Campground
For those who want to camp in the mountains, Oregon has you covered. Check out the Green Mountain Campground, which has some spectacular views, according to The Oregonian. This area only has four camping areas, but there is an ability to see everything below for miles. Both the tent areas and picnic sites are tucked away so you won't have to deal with a significant amount of wind, which can make being in this spot a lot more enjoyable. It is a fairly wooded area, but the view of the sky at night can be wonderful due to the lack of light pollution.
