On the way to the coast we stopped at a NFS campground near Crater Lake. It was a great place for 3 nights, spacious sites, convenient water and the temperatures were wonderful! We had clear days and nights. One day I drove up to the rim of Crater Lake.
My campsite was right on the Rogue River. At that location the river is much smaller than it is when it spills into the Pacific Ocean in Gold Beach, OR. On the way to the coast we stopped at the Redwood NF. I was impressed with the size of the Ponderosa Pines in the campground but the Redwoods are simply incredible. So glad our route took us close enough for a short detour to see them!
