We really can’t get enough of the state of Oregon. Not only does it have the picturesque Pacific coastline, but it contains a glorious wealth of diverse and rugged wildlife that makes it an unparalleled place to go luxury camping.

We recommend that you turn your glamping trip into a full blown road trip in order to maximize the amount of stunning scenery that you will soak in. These Oregon road trip ideas cover all the bases—whether you feel like driving along the Oregon coast or meandering along one of northern Oregon’s scenic byways, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to fun road trip ideas in Oregon.

Oregon Coast via Highway 101

The Pacific Coast Highway stretches up through California and along the entire Oregon coast. A drive up Highway 101 is one of the most classic road trips in the U.S., and it is definitely one of the best Oregon road trips. It winds through Oswald West State Park and crosses the infamous McCullough bridges, and much of the drive is framed by stunning old-growth forests. Consider stopping in Coos Bay, which is the largest town on the southern Oregon coast, because it has Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area within its borders.
