Honey Bear campground and RV resort, Ophir, Oregon
Situated on a sunny coast in Oregon, Honey Bear RV campground had to be our very first pick! Located 60 miles north of California, this site offers a year-round view of the great Pacific Ocean. The camping grounds are located near Gold Beach, a small and scenic little coastal town. The property spans over 100 acres and offers conducted tours, fishing, golfing and other fun outdoor activities for all.
Honey Bear provides you plenty of German cuisines with its Black Forest Sausage Kitchen. It is at its most festive during Oktoberfest where there’s plenty of singing and dancing. Visitors to this RV park return relaxed and rejuvenated with great reviews about the scenery, delicious food, and friendly folk.
Camp amenities include clean lodgings, wifi, cable, tents, full hook-ups and pull-thru campsites, playgrounds for children.
Located half an hour north of Santa Barbara, this campground is surrounded by the Los Padres National Forest. It’s the perfect place to enjoy both views, i.e. the sunny sands on the coasts of the Pacific and green nature walks into the woods. In addition, Ocean Mesa has a tie-up with its neighboring camping site for the El Capitan Canyon ground facilities.
With amenities like heated pools, kayaking, horse riding and surfing, this site has something for everyone, including a hiking path for your furry friends and pets.
If you’re an animal lover and want to see creatures in the wild, Ocean Mesa should definitely be on top of your list. However, safety and precautions should always be exercised on these trails as you might chance upon Mountain Lions, snakes, poisonous or allergy causing vegetation, ticks, leeches and other bugs.
Rated highest amongst the parks and camping grounds in Washington, Pine Near Park offers comfort, relaxation and scenic views to its patrons. Located in Winthrop, this property gives you access to some of the oldest western style saloons and shops that are still in operation. Unlike other camp grounds, this facility provides an alternate camping experience, by taking you into the Main streets and quaint towns where you can take in local craftsmanship, artists and interesting folks.
Though the grounds are small and sweet, they offer plenty of amenities like jet skiing, hot air balloon rides, fishing, hikes and bikes etc. There’s also a treat for the connoisseur in you, with art galleries and bird watching.
