"Packing List" Oregon Packing List Tip by JohnMJ

Oregon What to Pack: 15 reviews and 5 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Weather is unpredictable in Oregon, so be prepared. The coastal areas are moderate year around, rainy except summertime. The valley has cool and wet winters, rarely snow; wet but changeable falls and springs, usually warm and dry summers. Eastern Oregon has warmer summers, colder winters, usually dry (high desert).

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you are hiking into the mountain lake areas, be prepared for mosquitos in spring and early summer. They can be so bad, I once ran back to my car on a hike. Wait til August!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
