Not sure about Oregon parks, but California parks have had multiple years of budget cuts. I would suspect that many are not open yet in March - especially those further north and on the coast.
Thanks for the information. I wasn't sure if the sites were still that cheap, that is a great deal. Unfortunately the timeline is locked inas the only longer stretch I can get off work this year. At least I can hope to pedal into better weather.
The second thing is that the ride can definitely be done in 2 weeks. I was in Missoula before lunch of my 9th day.
May I ask - did you pre-book the hostels or just turn up and find space? And what time of year are we talking here? I've heard good things about these hostels so they'd certainly be another accommodation option.
Link to a Google Maps overview of this route - basically it's Seattle-Ellensburg-Yakima-Columbia River Gorge-Portland-Centralia-Tacoma-Bremerton-Port Angeles, 980km nominally. Two-and-a-half to three weeks, including a couple of days drinking beer in Portland.
Yeah I should say I've had to turn down offered food which I always feel a bit bad about. Also because of that I never stay with Warm Showers hosts or anything like that.
Why do you want to go to Portland? Portland is not on the coast. If you intend to do the coast of Oregon, you really want to get to Astoria.
