10 Campervan Road Trips to take this Summer

Summer is one of our favorite seasons to take a campervan trip. Clear, sunny skies and balmy evenings by the campfire make up the essentials of a great campervan road trip.

Summertime is truly the best time of year for exploring nature, where warm weather maximizes the open hiking trails in the national and state parks, making it peak season for RVers. By living in your own campervan, you can rough it or go all out glamping with your choice of campground or RV park.

Live your best Vanlife out on the road at our favorite picks, some of which are classic must-dos while others let you get off the beaten path to the road less traveled.

Siuslaw National Forest, Oregon

From the emerald forests of the Oregon mountains to the unique sand dunes and beaches of the Pacific Ocean, there is no shortage of unique environments to explore. Whether you’re more of a beach bum, enjoy whale watching or hiking, the Siuslaw National Forest will have something for your summer vacation.

Cape Perpetua is known for its beautiful views while being surrounded by old-growth Douglas fir, cedar, and Sitka spruce trees. Plus with Oregon’s temperate climate, the weather is comfortable throughout the heat of summertime.

The park is easily accessed via Highway 101 and can be divided into 3 main areas for visiting depending on what you’d like to see – Florence to Coos Bay, Newport to Florence, and Tillamook to Newport.

Onsite campgrounds like Alder Dune and Cape Perpetua campgrounds have a number of RV sites and basic amenities like flush toilets, picnic tables, and campfire rings. If you prefer full-hookup sites, consider nearby accommodations like Benton Oaks RV Park which is just 5 minutes away.
