    1. We provide information about visiting the coast. The local businesses, the county and the state control the campgrounds and set the prices.

      There are numerous links on the webpage we have posted to contact the people who run the campsites.

      We hope you visit. The southern Oregon and northern California coast are among the most beautiful in the world.
