Melanie and I left our great quarantine spot in Sisters, Oregon less than a week ago. We were in Eugene, Oregon for a few days then, on the advice of John and Susan, who I met at Windy Gap along the Mckenzie Scenic Highway while in Sisters, we made reservations in Bandon at Bandon Wayside, a spot recommended most recently with 5 stars on the Campendium website.
The RV park is small, they refer to it as "Micro," with 8 full-hook up sites located behind the motel. A privacy fence surrounds the property and for those of you who enjoy a hippie cocktail:
Guests are invited to walk around and relax around the property. Enjoy a self-made happy hour at one of our sunny picnic tables. For folks who enjoy cannabis have a seat in our open air Cannabis Cabin or if you are a tobacco smoker we have a open air covered seating area for you too. Please note that smoking and vaping are only permitted in designated areas. All rooms and the RV park are smoke and vape free.
RV guests have the use of two well-appointed bathrooms, both with a washer and dryer. They've thought of everything you may need, individual face cloths, facial tissues, Myers hand soap, individual bath mats, etc. In the time of pandemic I should add, they are very well-kept and cleaned regularly with sanitizer available for wiping surfaces.
The park is located within walking distance of a food market and we easily biked into old town Bandon and down the coast to Bandon South Jetty Park and Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge among other places.
David and Nicole are great hosts and made sure we had everything we needed for a great stay.
Nicole suggested a local favorite restaurant, Alloro Wine Bar & Restaurant, for take-out dinner since they are not yet open for dine-in service. They're offering 30% off in May and they deliver. We await dinner as I type.
Check Wayside out when in Bandon. We'll be back.
Steven and Melanie
