Christmas obligations are met and it’s time to go camping! Our fun Christmas campers are starting to join us at Tillicum Campground!
Did you know that you can use your campground receipt or car pass in any of the Day Use areas and Waysides; whether State Parks or National Forest? If your receipt is required on your site post, ask the Host for a Car Pass.
We stopped in to take some photos at Governor Patterson State Park this afternoon.
There are SO many great waysides on the Oregon coast. Some are State Parks and some are National Forest. Gov Patterson State Park has a restroom but not all of them do.
They usually provide access to the beach. This one has several short paths over a small sand dune. Some require a fee to park if you do not display your annual pass.
There’s a wide, sandy, beach for walking. Driftwood builds up after the Alsea River floods. High seas can move it all away with just a couple high tides.
Whether a State Park or National Forest, you can use any of the Day Use passes instead of paying the $5-$6 parking fee.
Here’s more info on the Day Use passes available for use on the Oregon coast:
