On The Rouge

We are parked on the Rouge River. We were parked, for one night, 14 miles up Rouge in one of the nicest Forest Service campgrounds in the country. We had the same spot as we did in 2010. Half shaded in a stand of myrtlewood trees. [They smell like lilac] Water and dump. Quiet. Only $7.50 a night. Why would we move? Pick any of the following: Three bars of 3G vs Searching for Service. Close to the beach and town. Ten miles closer to the Lazy Daze gathering in Ophir. 74 degrees with a sea breeze coming right up the river. Our back window is 12 feet from the river. Free.

Gold Beach, near the Oregon, California border. From here north to Bandon is the best coast line in the country.


Our spot on the Rouge River - Where are our yaks?

This is our fifth time to Oregon, our fourth to this area. I plan to reshoot a lot of places again and see if I have gotten any better with the camera.

Thursday – July 17 – It’s another clear day. The marine layer burned off early today. I should be taking pictures, but we are enjoying the social swim with fellow Lazy Daze people. It’s 1PM, the air temp is 80 and the sea breeze is 8-12 knots. Delightful! 

The weather forecast is for clear skies the next 10 days, so we plan to hang here. Enjoy the weekend.


  1. The only thing missing is an Alpenlite 5th wheel parked next to you.
