Things To Do On The Oregon Coast

April 08, 2015

As the Highway West Vacations family of RV parks continues to grow, we are always looking for new locations that are surrounded by jaw-dropping beauty and our Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort in Coos Bay, OR is definitely no exception. Here are some things to do on the Oregon Coast while you are visiting us!

This waterfront vacation destination has a variety of adventures nearby set amongst the area’s diverse landscape and wildlife including hiking trails such as the one-of-a-kind Oregon Coast Trail. The entire trail covers 425 miles, so let’s stick to the portion of the trail close to Oceanside.

Our journey along the Oregon Coast Trail begins at the Sunset Bay State Park, known for its picturesque beach and whale watching. The winding trail continues atop the coastal bluffs and after two miles of walking and gazing down upon the sprawling sea and serene sands of the Pacific Ocean, you will find yourself at the Shore Acres State Park.

Here you will find yourself at an exceptional vantage point, surrounded by botanical gardens that feature an array of native and exotic flowers. The trail picks up again on the other side of the gardens and continues along the coast as you come to the Simpson Reef/Shell Island overlook where many outdoor adventurers spot various types of sea lions and seals.

The adventure continues as you cross a road to the trail on the other side. It is here that you connect with the Arago Pack Trail and Cape Arago State Park, known for its north and south coves which both boast incredible tide pools full of sea creatures and plant life. The removal of animals and plants from the park is prohibited, so visitors can enjoy a piece of the Oregon Coast that is as true to nature as can be and is an ideal place to conclude this portion of the hike.

After a day of exploring the coast, you can have the luxury of a cottage or renovated airstream waiting for you over at Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort. For more information, visit
