Honey of a Campground

In late September and early October of 2010, we travelled the Oregon Coast, staying for a time at Honey Bear Campground outside of Gold Beach.

We’d heard about this spot from fellow SKPers Jack and Doris Yates who’ve stayed here before, and it was a great recommendation we’re happy to share here. Not only was the park clean and well-cared for, it was covered with gorgeous flowers and the onsite Black Forest Kitchen served up a great Oktoberfest meal.

We had a shady, private spot that was beautiful…

… except for the sap that we later discovered had covered our truck and RV with a filmy coating… 😦 Note: When selecting a campsite, look for trees that leak.

But here’s the real selling point for this spot: the ocean is just a short walk away! And it was a walk we made nearly every day.

We saw this tiny slice of the coast in a few different moods. From breathtaking misty mornings…

…to stunning blue sky afternoons:

We felt the waves crashing…

…and spotted the ocean’s leftovers resting like art objects in the sand:

Most of all, we walked and walked…

…or just sat and listened to the gulls and the waves, regenerating our spirits and replenishing our souls.
