Winter RV Camping In Oregon

Winter RV Camping In Oregon

Winter is not traditionally the time when most folks go RVing, but thankfully Oregon offers a treasure trove of RV camping bounties in the “off-season.” As one of the best RV parks Oregon has, Phoenix RV Park in Salem, Oregon is just one of many places to call home base as you explore the natural wonders of the Northwest this time of year. Here are some other great choices for RV parks in other parts of our great state.

Belknap Hot Springs

With close to 50 RV spots, the camping fee at Belknap Hot Springs RV Park includes free hot springs access, and even a private pool exclusively for their overnight guests. Located on the scenic McKenzie River, this historical resort also offers a variety of highly maintained hiking paths that go in and out of beautiful woods by the river’s edge. In the shoulder season, or in summer, they also have semi-formal gardens that are worth a visit. The resort is a getaway to many other activities and hiking in the Upper McKenzie river area; a highlight being the McKenzie River Trail, which winds for 26 miles through old growth forest along the river. The McKenzie River is world-renowned for fly-fishing and allows easy access to the entire Three Sisters Wilderness for the more adventurous.

Cape Lookout

If watching the large waves crash into sandy beaches when powerful winter storms rise up are more what you’re after, then Cape Lookout State Park may be right up your alley. This campground is open to tents and RVs and is snuggled amongst a small coastal forest near Tillamook, Oregon, jutting into the Pacific on a five-mile sandy spit. This site offers wonderful access to the nearby stunning Cape Lookout Trail, beach-combing, hiking to sights like the Big Spruce tree and, of course, the nearby famously delicious Tillamook Cheese Factory.

Steens Mountain Wilderness

This superb yet rustic campground in Southeastern Oregon features more than 60 RV sites just outside of the charming hamlet of Frenchglen. The Steens Mountain Wilderness Resort has full restrooms with utility sinks, showers, a laundry, and even a general store. With access to the Steens Mountain range in winter, it’s a perfect place to plan your snowshoe, cross country skiing, or snowmobiling adventures into one of Oregon’s lesser known mountain gems. The nearby Blitzen Valley also offers over 300 species of bird watching, or you could photograph the famous Kiger Mustangs, the area’s renowned wild horse herd.

Tumalo State Park

This conveniently located park near Bend and Sisters, Oregon allows winter hikers access to uncrowded trails winding through ponderosa pines by the roaring Deschutes River. It is possible to see Canada geese, water ouzels, eagles, ospreys, and other wildlife. The park and campground also offer easy access to central Oregon’s hottest city, Bend and its myriad of breweries and renowned restaurants. With Mt. Bachelor and the Three Sisters mountains as your skyline, skiing and snow sports are readily available. That makes this 24-spot, full hookup park perfect for your next adventure. 

Umpqua Lighthouse

Umpqua Lighthouse State Park is one of the Central Oregon coast’s true wonders. It is located in the heart of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, whose over 500-foot-tall sand dunes offer endless exploring and a stark contrast to the coastal blues and grays of winter. Nearby activities also include the Umpqua River Lighthouse, looming at 65 feet, which houses a distinctive lens that emits a red and white flash. Nearby, the local area also offers crabbing, sport fishing, and the picturesque Umpqua River and Lake Marie to explore.

We hope this list has been helpful to show you the wide variety of RV camping possibilities in winter that Oregon can offer. At Phoenix RV Park in Salem, Oregon we offer year ’round RV camping with only the finest amenities. Contact us today
