Labor Day Weekend Camping Weather

Okay, I can’t predict the weather – but people who have access to more equipment and knowledge than I have say the weather will be awesome on the central Oregon coast for Labor Day weekend!

I can tell you that it’s a beautiful morning on Tillicum Beach though!

Did you know that there’s a wide enough width of hard sand on the beach to ride your bicycle all the way from Tillicum to Waldport?

Or from Tillicum to Yachats!

I thought I was over the drawing-pictures-in-the-sand thing….until I saw a hat with a curlycue coming out the top.   I couldn’t resist!

I immediately saw the cat-in-the-hat with a new hat and a beard.  Maybe what I should do is post one of these without my drawings and see how YOUR imagination would fill it in?

I’m going to do a little forecasting based on my experience in workamping in campgrounds:  Friday night will be frantic.  All our campgrounds will be full.  HOWEVER, I believe we will have some openings on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Call the campground ahead of time to get a better idea if you’re a cautious-gambler.

We actually have one group site that is NOT booked for the weekend:  Canal Creek Campground holds up to 100 people.  Call us to make a reservation if you are interested in 1 or more days: 541-547-3679

Beach Vacations on the Oregon Coast

Red in the morning, Sailors take warning…

However, the forecast is only 10% chance of rain today and 0% through the Labor Day weekend. 🙂

Arnold Beach Haven’s Sandy Shores property is just north of Tillicum Beach Campground.  It is the third house from the creek.  What a beautiful place to vacation!

The campground was NOT full last night.  Reservations ARE full for the Labor Day weekend.  HOWEVER, we have about 20 campsites that are first-come-first-served.

Many of the campsites are on the edge of the bluff, overlooking the beach.  Two beach access stairways, with 20 steps, get you to the beach from the campground.

Get here early in the day to get the best campsite.
