July through September are historically the warmest and driest months on the Oregon Coast; making for spectacular views along the beautiful coastline. Couple that with great crabbing and fishing seasons and you'll have trouble deciding which campground best suits you. Tent, RV and horse camp from Waldport's Alsea River to Florence's Siuslaw River. North to south is the best way to travel as you can easily stop at every overlook.
