Camping Spots in Oregon:
Our first camping spot is located about an hour and a half west of Portland and is known as Cannon Beach.

Wright’s for Camping has 22 spacious campsites and offers picnic tables, fire rings, and showers. The place is also dog-friendly, so be sure to bring your furry friend along. Just remember to use a dog leash in areas that require it and pick up after your pet!
