Craig,  We are planning a trip to Washington and Oregon in 2024. Cape Disappointment SP, Deception Pass SP, Fort Stevens SP (OR), as well as Washington's 3 National Parks, and Crater Lake NP. What is the best time to visit the PNW, say between July and September, the least crowded?  Any help would be greatly appreciated 

 

I went to Oliver Facebook to look for your blog and it was gone, and you were gone also🙃.  Guess I will need to spend more time on the Forum.

I am not Craig, but I did live in the Seattle area for 35 years.  Any time between July and September will be fairly crowded, because July and August are the sunny, dry months on the west side of the Cascades.  On average, the fall/winter/spring rainy season begins around mid-September, and lasts until the 5th of July.  And, schools usually start in early September, right after Labor Day.

To minimize crowding but maximize the chance of good weather, I would go the first couple of weeks of September, right after school starts but (hopefully) before the 9-month drizzly/cloudy season begins.  If your sojourn will last longer than 2 weeks, you will encounter more competition for campsites in August (before school starts), and a lower likelihood of good weather after mid-September.

Hope this helps.

Thank You. That is very helpful.

I concur with the first two weeks in September as being a good time to visit the Washington and Oregon coasts. I grew up in Grays Harbor County and the first two weeks of school were  miserable because we didn’t have air conditioning in the classrooms and, in those days, we couldn’t wear shorts to class. While the campgrounds will be absent of kids, you will see a lot of gray hairs our age as it really is the perfect time to camp!😉

Hats off to your blog for the great information and maps.  Also for your list of things to buy for the Oliver on Amazon, also helpful.
