Jul 19, 2015 - Netarts, OR - Big Spruce RV Park

7/19-7/20/15 Left Newport and drove to Netarts, OR. Netarts is a little town west of Tillamook, OR. Pulled into Big Spruce RV Park, site #8 for 2 nights. This RV park is waking distance to the boat launch at Netarts Bay. I took an hour walk around 3 pm and took some picture of the bay…very scenic. 7/20/15 (Monday) Drove to the Tillamook Cheese Factory for breakfast. I had chicken fried steak and Al had the scramble egg and ham hash. It was a lot of food. We took the self-guided tour of the Factory and saw cheese being packaged. Next we...

Aug 20, 2014 - Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort

Next stop Netarts Bay Garden RV Resort. The untrustworthy GPS took us a long windy way from the south, but had some nice views. Nice little RV Park that also rents crabbing boats for $85 plus $11 for a license. We got a pull through spot but had to back in because of logistics. Dish did not work because of trees, but they give you a cable box to hook up. Looks like a lot of trouble. Verizon works good and AT&T has 3 bars. No fire pits. 30 amp in our spot. Barely fit the jeep, we were in spot 12.

Jun 11, 2013 - Coos Bay to Netarts,OR

May 31 We’re camped at The Mill Casino, North Bend. They have a beautiful RV Park at $40.00 a night. They also have a very large graveled area for free, I'll give you one guess where we're parked. We took a ride down the southern coast. The beauty and power of the ocean here can not be put into words. June 12 We've put a lot of miles on our little VW. We're camped at Netarts, OR, about 6 miles west of Tillamook. We've been up and down the coast the last week. I laugh people think were pretty cool with the kayaks on top of the VW and when we...

May 16, 2013 - Big Spruce RV Park at Netarts

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 – Big Spruce RV Park at Netarts Netarts is nearly due west of the City of Tillamook, facing the long, shallow Netarts Bay. Netarts oysters are a delicacy because they are raised in the most pristine bay. We will buy some before we leave this area.. Wednesday, May 15, 2013 We toured the Tillamook Cheese Factory sampling their different cheese. We took pictures of the cheese operations as we watched them process the cheese. We bought some cheese and two ice cream cones. We drove past the Tillamook Air Museum (During...

Apr 15, 2010 - Cheese and a good walk

We based ourselves at Netarts on the Three Capes Scenic loop. The morning started a typical Oregon coast damp day so we headed up the road to the Tillamook Cheese factory. Early pioneers and settlers quickly recognised that the area offered an ideal environment for raising dairy cows. The large quantity of milk produced by these cows was used initially to produce butter that was traded with other coastal towns and cities. In 1894 a local butter manufacturer T S Townsend hired Peter McIntosh, a Canadian cheese-maker to start the making of...

Aug 25, 2009 - Westport to Netarts

Today we headed south out of Westport on highway 105 to highway 101. We stopped in the small town of Raymond for fuel and Sue discovered that Arnie had a badly swollen lip along with some allergy symptoms he had been showing. So we stopped at the first animal hospital we saw just a mile west of Raymond and a couple of miles east of South Bend. The vet was able to see us right after we had lunch in the See Ya (parked in an H & R Block driveway) and she prescribed some antibiotics, steroid, and antihistamine. We were happy that the bill came...

Jul 8, 2008 - Netarts Bay Oregon - 2

Netarts Bay, Or. July, 7,8 We headed out early (7am) to go rock hounding at the beach in Oceanside; well early for us, late for Alan. Carol got some much needed rest. Like clamming, low tide is the best time for rock hounding or beach combing. We found lots of agates and pieces of Jasper. Carly really got into searching for the rocks with Alan. Erik still preferred hunting up birds. We saw some people getting Mussels off of rocks so Cindy fetched some screwdrivers but we decided not to harvest any as we didn’t know the regulations or what...

Jul 6, 2008 - Netarts Bay Oregon

Netarts Bays, Or. – July, 5,6 We decided that we had not had enough clamming so we again headed out to play in the mud. The tides were really good for clamming as the low tides were –2 feet or so. The more negative the low tide, the better exposed the clam beds become. The biggest tidal swings are 6-7 ft. around here and occur during a new moon and a full moon. An interesting phenomenon around here is that in each town you get the local version of tide tables. We probably have 5 or 6 now. We only had to drive about a half a mile to get to a...

Jul 4, 2008 - Happy Fourth of July from Netarts Bay

Netarts Bay, Or. – July 4 We headed back to Netarts Bay on July 4 and stayed at an RV Park right on the bay where Alan and Carol used to keep their camper. We took in the fireworks at Netarts Bay which were interesting as there was 30-45 minutes of sporadic fireworks launched by private individuals before the fancy dancy version. Alan and Carol even trekked out from Forest Grove to join us for some of the fireworks which is a long drive (1 hr.+ each way).

Oct 24, 2006 - Netart, OR

The Pacific Highway is a gorgeous drive along the Oregon coast. We decided to take a coastal road detour at one point so we could stay somewhere on the beach. But in our most incompetent piece of navigation of the whole trip we got lost and drove around in circles. By the time we drove through the same fishing village for the third time it was no longer a feeling of deja vu, but a cry of "for f#*@'s sake!" As it was now pitch black we decided to stop in this village, which did have a beach, and was quite pleasant.

Oct 11, 2006 - Netarts, OR

Tuesday Headed on north up 101, nice drive, we were planning on taking the three cape loop, but missed a turn. Found a Passport America RV Park in Netarts, OR, only 22 spaces kind of shoehorned in but very quite and very nice people. $11.00 per night, hard to beat! Got ourselves parked, then took the PU and went north up the top loop of the three cape loop to Cape Meares. Really a pretty trip, glad we did miss that turn earlier as much easier in the pickup! The lighthouse at Cape Meares is very short cause it is on a very high headland....
