Coos Bay, Oregon

RV parks are available in Coos Bay.

Although the site of present-day Coos Bay was settled in 1853, the isolation enforced by its location between the Coast Range Mountains and the Pacific Ocean made development difficult. Then in 1916, the coming of the railroad changed the city's fortunes, as has happened in so many cities in the United States. The decade following the railroad's arrival saw significant growth which was followed by large-scale growth in later years until the population reached its present figure of around 16,000 which, when combined with its neighbour city, North Bend, gives it the largest population on the Oregon coast.

Coos Bay, North Bend and Charleston form Oregon's Bay Area. A natural harbour, the largest between Seattle and San Francisco, has helped Coos Bay become a major shipping and manufacturing centre. There is good sports fishing in the area as well.

Steve Prefontaine, a track athlete of middle and long-distance racing, hailed from Coos Bay. He was instrumental in inspiring the running boom which occurred in the 1970s, along with two other athletes. His drive to win and his ability to endure pain overtook the handicap of having one leg shorter than the other. He always ran to win.
