First, a dumb question: is Monday, August 4 a holiday in Oregon? I'm assuming it's a civic holiday ONLY in Canada, but I want to make sure!
I have our entire 10-day Oregon coast camping trip booked in State Parks, EXCEPT for the last 2 nights, August 2 & 3, because I can't seem to find anything close to Portland, at least through the ReserveAmerica site. I thought perhaps because it's a long-weekend, but now I'm thinking it's just a really popular camping weekend and I waited too long to book. Can anyone suggest a decent spot for a truck/camper and a tent, that might still have availability? Preferably on the south side of Portland, not too far off the I-5? We tend to avoid the private, no-trees, crammed-together RV parks if at all possible!
Second, we hope to hit some outlet stores in Portland on Sunday, August 3 - will most stores be open on that day? Or do some close on Sundays?
