Oregon Coast Charging
Pacific Coast Highway Travel's guide to Oregon coast charging stations for
electric vehicles, from Brookings in the south to Astoria in the north.
If you're planning on driving the Pacific Coast Highway in
an electric vehicle then you'll need to know where Oregon coast charging
stations are located.
The good news is that there are charging stations spread
at regular intervals all along the Oregon coast, and you should have no trouble
charging your EV to drive the PCH.
First Oregon Coast
As you enter Oregon from California your first charging station is just over the border in Brookings. It's the Webasto Charging Station at 325 5th Street, at the junction with the Pacific Coast Highway.
The next charging station is in Bandon, just over 80 miles
further north. This one is a Tesla Supercharger with eight outlets and it's at 120
Michigan Ave NE. This street runs parallel to the Pacific Coast Highway, one
block to the west, and to get to the charging station is only a two-minute
North of Bandon
There's another station in Coos Bay, about a 30-minute drive
north of Bandon, and a second in North Bend, only five minutes beyond that. All
these stations are either on or just off the Pacific Coast Highway.
North Bend to
Beyond North Bend the next two charging stations are both in
Florence, about an hour's drive away. They're both Tesla Destination Chargers
with four stations each, and they stand either side of Highway 101 immediately
north of the river.
Yachats and Waldport
There's a Webasto Charging Station in Yachats, a half-hour
beyond Florence, and that's right on the highway, on the west side between 4th
and 5th Streets. There's another one ten minutes beyond that, in Waldport, on
the west side of the highway
North of Waldport
Driving north from Waldport, the next charging station is in
Newport, thirty minutes away. There are then several stations in and around
Lincoln City, a half-hour drive from Newport, and several more in Tillamook, an
hour beyond Lincoln City.
There are then a couple in Cannon Beach, an hour north of
Tillamook, and a couple more in Astoria, which is a 40-minute drive from Cannon
There are plenty of Tesla Destination Chargers along the
Oregon coast. These can be used by non-Tesla electric vehicles, but you’ll need
to download the Tesla app first and create an account before you can use them. You
may also need to buy an adapter.
Distance between Oregon
Coast Charging Stations
So you're never more than about an hour at the most from a
charging station when driving the Pacific Coast Highway along the Oregon coast.
