In the California parks the hiker/biker sites are first come/first served.  They are relatively inexpensive (I stayed in Big Sur for $3, $0.25 for hot shower) and are only for hikers and bikers.  I doubt you will be turned away.

How will I know a "hiker-biker" site when I see one?  (probably sounds silly... but I don't know!)

It seems to me all the campgrounds (state ones) on the Oregon and California coasts had hiker/biker sites.  Ask at the booth at the entrance or just ask around.  You will also meet other travelling bikers each day and be able to compare notes, etc about the accomodations. 
May the wind be at your back!

The book I mentioned earlier generally states which state parks have hiker/biker sites.  You need to ask when you go to the check-in booth.  They will direct you to the hiker/biker site.  As I recall you can only stay at these sites for a couple of days.  Some have showers and some do not.

I confirmed that many CA state parks have h/b sites. I spoke to a ranger in a park that is known to be full all summer, and he assured me that h/b users would not be turned away, since it is so easy to accommodate a cyclist with a tent -- he said they typically open another section, if need be, for h/b use.

Oregon has a map "Oregon Coast Bike Route" that locates h/b campgrounds and non-h/b campgrounds that fall along the coastal roads. It can be found at ODOT, here:  http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/HWY/BIKEPED/maps.shtml#ODOT_Bicycle_Maps
