Top 5 Things to Do Around Coos Bay, Oregon

At Cruise Inn RV Parks, one of our favorite places to visit is Coos Bay, OR. Centrally located between several different state parks, the area is any outdoor enthusiast's dream. Whether you want to go camping along the coast or take a guided whale-watching trip, there's plenty to do near our convenient Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort. Here are five of our favorite activities.

Go Fishing

Coos Bay is an excellent place to spend a day or two fishing. The Coos River, Bay, and other natural waterways make the location ideal for wrangling salmon, steelhead, and even Dungeness crab. You can also take a whale-watching trip out of Coos Bay, depending on the time of year.

Explore the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area

The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area just north of Coos Bay offers 40 miles of rolling sand dunes to see. You can explore the area on foot or spend the day off-roading on a quad or ATV.

Go Hiking at Sunset Bay State Park

The shores to the southwest of Coos Bay provide excellent scenic views, particularly at Sunset Bay State Park. This sandy beach and surrounding bluffs are both beautiful places to hike, swim, camp, or go boating.

Look for Wildlife at Cape Arago State Park

If wildlife is your thing, you'll love going birding and marine mammal spotting at nearby Cape Arago State Park. The Lighthouse Viewpoint is an excellent place to see breeding and resting areas for sea birds. Be sure to bring your binoculars in order to observe the area's whales from a distance.

Stroll the Gardens at Shore Acres State Park

Shore Acres State Park, which is adjacent to Cape Arago State Park, features five acres of pristine, formal gardens. You can visit the rose-testing plot or relax in front of the manicured Japanese lily pond. The gardens are particularly exciting during the holidays, when some 325,000 lights are installed on the property.

These are just some of our favorite things to do near Coos Bay, OR.
