Road Trip: Camping the Oregon Coast

Last week was a quiet one here on the blog as we were enjoying family time at the Oregon Coast!  The majority of our time was spent camping at South Beach State Park in Newport, Oregon.  We went to the aquarium, played on the beach, and ate fresh crab!

This road trip, the journey was just as much of a focus as the destination. We took our time driving and split it into two days each way, with a stop in Bend going and La Pine coming home (where we woke up to 30 degree weather!)  Spreading out the drive made road tripping much more enjoyable with a toddler, and we got to experience camping in more destinations and environments!

Trip Details:
Stay: Tumalo State Park, South Beach State Park, La Pine State Park
***All the campgrounds we stayed in were very nice and clean (hello flush toilets and hot showers!) 
Eat: Old St. Francis School (Bend), Brewer’s on the Bay (Newport), Mo’s Seafood & Chowder (Newport)
Do: explore Downtown Bend,Newport Aquarium, crabbing (the boys went out and caught us a crab dinner!), explore the Historic Bayfront in Newport (we got to see a bunch of seals here, which Lucy thought was intriguing!)
