Just because the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder, doesn’t mean you have to put away the camper gear or the trailer. Surprisingly, there is a long list of state parks that allow camping through the winter months on a first come first serve basis.
When I go camping I want to feel like I’m camping. There’s nothing more disappointing than arriving at a campsite that is packed full of tents, RVs, and trailers spaced 10-feet apart with crowds of people. This is missing the entire point of getting out and off the grid. When I step outside my camper or tent at night, I want to hear nothing but the wind, wildlife, or silence.
Perhaps it will offset the reported cancellation of large crowd events through the end of September, that is still "in effect" by order of Gov. Kate Brown. Did anyone tell Ohio State? They're coming to Eugene for a mammoth game 9-21 vs. Oregon.
