Umpqua Lighthouse State Park

With four days off over Easter weekend (March 25th-28th, 2016) we took off for Umpqua Lighthouse State Park outside of Reedsport, Oregon. Our daughter, Danielle, and her four legged baby, Gucci, got to come along as well for a nice get away for all of us.

We had stayed here once before and found the park small and in a nice location. The spaces have nice spacing with trees between all the spaces. The park even has yurts and cabins to rent. The yurts look like they'd be a nice get away.

The area is dog friendly and as in all the Oregon state parks they have no issue with all our furry kids camping with us. Spella approved the site and she and all the kids enjoyed new smells to check out and there was a nice 1 mile hiking path around Lake Louise just a short walk away to get them out on.

Just down the road is the Umpqua Lighthouse and it is open for tours on some days.

We found the best bakery, Sugar Shack Bakery, for donuts and other sweet items in Reedsport and they were even open Easter morning so that became the Easter treat for all of us.

While we were there we also went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport. It is worth the time to see all the critters there and they have a nice educational aspect.
