Free Guide to Northwest Camping
Welcome! You've just found the first of its kind Free Guide To Northwest Camping. This site is free to use and offers a guide to hundreds of publicly and privately owned campgrounds throughout Oregon, Washington and (soon to be added) Northern California. Every campground listed has been visited by the authors. Included with each campground description are photos, maps, area golfing suggestions, nearby shopping and even hints for fishermen and amateur astronomers.
Planning a weekend camping trip? How about a month? It doesn't matter. The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is the starting place for all of your planning. Just click on the geographic area where you want to camp and start clicking on individual campgrounds to see which campground meets your needs. The campground details even offer campground maps to allow you to see individual camping sites and their locations within the campground.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we insure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping.
While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites. Because pay per night campgrounds change their prices on a frequent basis, prices are not listed unless the campground is free. Contact information and links are provided so that RV camping and tent camping costs can be found directly from the campground owner/operator.
General descriptions for each campground include information regarding:
- Geographic location
- Driving instructions
- Reservation information
- General campground description
- Photos of the campground, facilities and some campsites
- Available utilities (water, electricity, sewer, public restrooms and showers, etc.)
- Number of campsites
- Is tent camping allowed
- Is the campground limited to only RV camping
- Nearby golfing
- Nearby fishing
- Nearby shopping
- Astronomy opportunities - bring your binoculars or small telescope camping! The views from a remote campground often far exceed the astronomical viewing from your home town or backyard. A beginners guide to astronomy book, a star chart and an inexpensive pair of binoculars add hours of fun and a whole new dimension to camping.
New campground descriptions are added weekly so check back often. In the meantime - have a safe and fun camping trip!
