We stayed in spot #44 for 3 days ($12 a night)– in addition to RV sites, they also have cabins for rent and a special section for campers with horses. Even though the park was amazing, we had just as much fun venturing into the town of Port Orford to eat at the famous Crazy Norwegians, get some groceries at Seaweed Natural Grocery and Cafe and do laundry:

Definitely check out Duds-n-Suds in Port Orford,

It’s clean, and they have really nice new washers and dryers!

We also checked out the fishing docks:

The rest of the time, we just hung out at the beach…..
