"Only an 88-mile drive, but it seemed much longer because of the narrow winding roads. But the reward at the end made it well worth it. Now it's time to explore the area."
We had a short drive up the coast to Beverly Beach. This massive State Park campground is tucked in a dense forest. There's easy beach access via a path under the Hwy 101 bridge.

We found a Harvest Hosts member that was actually a brewpub, and we tucked our coach in nicely on the large lot behind the pub. Good beers and dinner, just a short walk away.
We discovered two excellent craft breweries in Brookings and a pizza restaurant where their beers are brewed at another location Oregon.
Our first stop was at Chetco Brewing Company, right on Hwy 101 in downtown Brookings. The tasting room shared the building with a Thai restaurant and Radio Sha...
Found a nicely wooded campground that offers spectacular views of Bastendorff Beach below. This beach extends from Yoakum Head to the south jetty, which is the entrance of the bay.
A popular State Park conveniently located 2 miles south of Newport, with easy access to miles of broad & sandy beaches and a lot more.
Our first fresh-hopped brew of the 2015 season!
Deschutes Brewery Tour.
This is our fourth summer to visit Bend, but our first to take the tour of Deschutes Brewery. In the past, we’ve made a point of visiting their Public House in downtown Bend, which began brewing in 1988. Construction on the main brewing facility began in 1993.
Found a wonderful campground on Cass Lake. Large private sites with easy access to the lake.

"Found a rather unique RV Park that's also a marina. Our site overlooks the marina and the famous Ariel Lift Bridge. Across the bay, we have views of downtown Duluth & its hills."
We're spending the night parked at a Harvest Hosts member — Five & 20 Spirits and Brewery. What an interesting concept: a distillery, brewery, and winery all in one.
We found a great State Park just outside of Ithaca, NY. Lots of waterfalls and hiking opportunities in the area.
Leasburg Dam State Park: Site #31 & #6, these sites have water & electric, dump station nearby, 29 sites, 4,200 foot elevation. February 19th - 25th.
We arrived at Leasburg with a three-day reservation because last spring, we couldn't get in without a reservation (we don't like making reservations). We find plenty to do in the area, so we scored one of few first come/first serve sites with water & electricity to extend our stay.
Top Photo: The patio at the park's art center. Looks nice and cozy.
Jojoba Hills is a wonderful SKP Co-op built and maintained by its members. Lots of activities and friendly folks can be found here!
Spacious private campground (4 sites) run by the community's property owners association for folks visiting members of the community. Very nice.

With 18 brewers and brewpubs in Bend, you never have to go far to find a good brew.
