Rainy Days

Camped  for four nights at Carl Wasburn Memorial State Park near Florence . Beautiful park with large Sitka Spruce dripping moss. Rained most of the time while we were there. Because of the tall trees and the location, no internet or cell phone service but  a great park with level sites, all in beautiful setting and great hosts. highly recommended. Short walk to the beach.


Beautiful area to explore., things to see. Not the least of which is the famous Heceta Head Lighthouse, probably the most photographed light house on the west coast. We became friends with two of the hosts, Paul and Jayne, who were camped just a hundred yards down the road in Washburn State Park.


This house is operated as a B & B by the U.S. Forest Service. It was a duplex, originally housing the assistant lighthouse keepers and their families. The keeper’s house is gone.


Heceta Head is indeed photogenic but for history and beauty, we  preferred the nearby Yaquina  ( yah-kwin’-ah) Head Lighthouse, at 93 feet, the tallest lighthouse on the Oregon Coast. 114 steps to the top and we walked them all.

  1. So beautiful! And good info for our summer trip 😊 Glad you and Mom are having fun and meeting folks. Stay safe! ❤️


    1. Washburn has tent sites and they have showers and clean restrooms near at hand. Definitely take the kids to Yaquina Head Lighthouse.It is run by the blm and they have created a great interpretive center. The young woman who led the tour was dressed in period costume. It doesn’t rain as much in August.
