Pets, Toddlers, Tent Camping, Clothes washing

Postby mjkresko » Mon Jun 30, 2008 6:57 pm

Several Questions:

* State parks allow pets but I was wondering what Cycle Oregon Weekend's recommendation was if they can't be left at home?

* Can you choose campsites that are separate if you have your own tent? Or, must they be set up "tent city" like as in the photos I see for the week long ride?

* Do the campground bathroom have changing tables? Clothes washing facilities?

Thanks!

Here are two links to Fort Stevens State Park and all it's services. If they don't answer your questions, you should call the park directly. Phone numbers are listed on these sites.

If you cannot leave them at home, try finding a friend or neighbor to watch them. Boarding is also an option.

If you want to camp separately from the Cycle Oregon group, you will need to make reservations through the park. They are on a first come first served basis and space is limited.

My feeling is animals do not belong on a bike ride . It can be too hot
for them and there are too many people on the CO rides.

Dogs

The question was whether dogs were allowed in the campgrounds. I could see that it would be a problem if we were camped on top of each other; however, if the tent city had a suburban section, I could see leaving a dog at a campsite being a possibility.

Would you leave the dog there alone ? I don't think that sounds like a
good idea unless someone else is there. If left outside the tent he may
get taken or spooked; if inside it may be too hot. I think you better
email the CO office before you do this.
