We're camping just north of Gold beach right now heading south. Don't know what your looking for as far as cost or amenities but we found a nice little place, (Necika Beach RV park) about 5 miles north of Gold Beach. Pull thru full hook up $22. Nice personel and friendly campers. We also like Beverly Beach State Park just north of Newport. Overall I can't say we've ever had a bad experience anywhere on the Oregon coast. We just look in the Trailer Life Directory, find what we like and can afford and the rest is up to us. Happy Camping!
We have many real neat state parks, depending when you are leaving, get hold of a good map, head for the coast and MOST all parks will acomodate your rig. We like Humbug SP and many more south coastal places. Really nice way south is Sunset Bay near Coos Bay.
Drive careful and have fun.
If you want to see ALOT of coast, take the 26 (or 30) from Portland due West to Astoria and then catch Hwy 101 all the way south to CA. LOTS to see and do along the Oregon coast and everything is big-rig friendly. We just took 3 weeks doing the northern section (Astoria to Florence, OR) and stayed at 3 State Parks along the way (Fort Stevens SP, Beverly Beach SP, G.Washburne SP). I'd recommend all of them.
If you're interested I've got pics and info on that whole portion on the blog: http://wheelingit.wordpress.com/
Just look at the last 6 posts or so for both things to see and reviews/pics of the state parks.
We only did the northern section, but the southern section is equally lovely. So, another route for you is to head due south to Eugene, OR and then catch the 126 west to Florence, OR. That will take you on Hwy 101 south from there (P.S. if you're coming thro' Eugene in the next week, we'll be here at Armitage County Park). All the state parks on the Oregon coastline will take your size.
We traveled the Oregon Coast this summer and stayed at the Pacific Pines in Florence. Very nice Good Sam Park. Don't miss Old Town and make a reservation at the Waterfront Depot for dinner. The Oregon coast is awesome. Just takes your breath away. ENJOY
Cape Lookout near Tillamonk is fantastic. So close to great beach. Only problem is road condition, go slow, great waves, etc. Pacific Beach area has neat restaurant I can't remember name but it is a Beer Pub, lots of parking, Best clam chowder.....

Having done the OR Coast a few times (and concentrated on the north end for the most part) I would recommend Cannon Beach RV Park, Newport Marina RV and Winchester Bay RV park - all are excellent. These are all FHU private parks.
I would also suggest you go to Search on here for OR Coast and you will be information overload!
