Valentine’s Day might be on a Tuesday but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate over the weekend, or plan a future trip together at one of these romantic spots! Oregon is full of beauty and splendor, perfect for spending some quality time with the one you love camping and enjoying the great outdoors!
Tillicum Beach Campground
With majority of the campsites having ocean views, and easy beach access, you can take a romantic walk the wide and seemingly endless beach at sunset. Or get comfortable, and sit around your campfire watching the sun set with your loved one. Just don’t forget the ‘s’mores and some wine!
You can also be lulled to sleep every night with the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach, creating a relaxing night’s sleep.
Sites at Tillicum are equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring, and wood bundles can be purchased from the camp host. Flush toilets and drinking water are nearby and even your furry four legged family members are welcome!
