Yes, Oregonians don't pump their gas. We are just across the Columbia River in Washington and we often forget too, when over there. The reason is for JOBS. They are trying to protect jobs, and I guess we can't really begrudge them that and, ironically, it's always cheaper there than over there. You are in for a treat on the Oregon coast. ANY Oregon State Park is a great choice. Oregon has done a fantastic job with their campgrounds, and most are big-rig friendly. Enjoy! We've probably been to most of the sites along 101... let us know if you need any advice!

New Jerseyians aren't allowed to pump their own gas either! When you coming out this way?

While all Oregon State Parks are really nice, some of them can be really crowded. Best to call ahead for status before going. We learned the hard way.
