Wow Mike - that is extremely generous! How thoughtful of you to include Donna - she deserves it! We are very grateful that she doesn't organize our fun getaways

Comments please on routes to the park. Heading south on I-5 there are two options: (1) go through Portland, then west on US-26 to the park or (2) go through Longview to then south on OR-47.

I am very familiar with US-26, the Sunset Highway. Oregon 47 appears to be more mountainous - has anyone traveled to LL Stub Stewart Park on OR-47?

Thanks!!

The monkey puzzle bowls are fantastic, I've always been interested in the trees, never thought about how the wood grain, very cool.

We live in Clatskanie my wife will not ride with me up 47 with a trailer. It is a bit steep and crooked. You can come across Longview Bridge. go right and up to top of Grade Go left , go right at Hudson Park, take Apiary road to left . that takes you to 47 and on to Stubb Stewarts. I,have taken trailers up 47 and Log and Chip trucks do it all the time. It depends on your comfort level

Thanks for the info, looks like the Portland route is the way to go.

The last time we went to Stub Stewart (which was our first time) we took I-5 south to Longview, across the bridge into Oregon and south onto 47. We will never do that again!!!!! The road is barely 2 lanes, with embankment close on one side and dropoff on the other. It is an active logging road, and passing a log truck is hair-raising! The log trucks going the same way will ride your bumper all the way.

Coming back from Stub Stewart, we wisely decided to go south (continuing downhill) from the CG and turning East on the hiway that goes between Portland and Cannon Beach, then South on I-5 to I-205, East and North on I-205 back into WA. Much, Much, Much better!

This year we are going to retrace our return path from last time. We used our IPhone to plot the course last time and it gave use every twist and turn without fail. I highly recommend that you do the same. When you leave I-205, you will actually go North on I-5 for a very short distance before turning toward the West, and eventually onto the hiway to Cannon Beach, which by-the-way, is a beautiful hiway drive all the way to Cannon Beach.

The turnoff from the Cannon Beach hiway to the CG road (OR 47?) is clearly visible from a long ways away, and the turnoff is clearly signed. Likewise, the turnoff into the CG is clearly marked as well.

See you all on Friday!

Mike

Mike, thanks for the input. It will be the Portland route for us. And we know about this highway. For many, many years we would vacation at Cannon Beach when we lived in the Tri-Cities. In fact we were at Cannon Beach in January. And Manzanita is another great spot on the coast, jsut south of Cannon Beach.

Coming from Tacoma I can't see why you would go on I205 and back track on I5. That would add about 28 miles and 30 minutes to your drive.

Tacoma, WA to L.L." Stub " Stewart State Park - Google Maps

Jim, we will be on I-5. I know what you mean about I-205. I-205 is good for Bandon but not Stewart! We will get on I-5 at Olympia - we'll be trucking down WA26 to Shelton, then to Olympia.

Sharen & Simon,
Can't wait to see you TWO and the many others, as well.
Is the Roadtrek a STEP UP or a STEP DOWN from the 'Cramper'?
Wait 'till you see what I got from Stephen for my Birthday...speaking about Birthdays, I've got some very 'eggs'citing news about our new TWINS!!!!

Our daughter -in-law just let us know about a change in plans for Easter so we will be scooting fairly early Sunday. Also, LL Stubs has added a disc (aka frisbee) golf course, if anyone is interested we will bring some discs - stop by site 73. We're headed out in a few hours - woo hoo


Simon and Sharen, heard rumors about your Roadtrek. Always admired their design team. Can't wait to see it and hear your summer plans.
