At Sherwood Auto Repair, we are just regular guys and gals who love the outdoors, camping, hiking, and adventuring, just like you! Sure, we are awesome at what we do, but we love road tripping and thought we'd share our favorites.


Page Springs Campground – Steens Mountains


It's a great place to set up camp to provide the perfect base for exploration where wildlife abounds. Take along your fishing pole and your hiking shoes, as nearby Donner und Blitzen River (the rumor is Santa summers here with his reindeer) offers catch and release fishing, and two family-friendly hiking trailheads are nearby. Access to rivers, hiking trails, hunting and fishing areas can be found along the 52-mile Steens Mountain Backcountry Byway.


Carson Hot Springs – Washington


This perfect place to road trip is because of the natural spring water pool and baths. With temperatures that hover between 93 and 104 degrees the water will melt away that kink in your neck, pain in your back, and tightness in your legs. 

Bubbling up from well below the earth's surface, the spring water is rich in minerals that are said to rid the body of toxins and help create smooth clear skin. You can soak in the mineral pool, or for a more private affair visit the 1930's era bathhouses where a clawfoot tub filled with the healing waters awaits. 


We also love Lava Lands, Cape Perpetua and Fort Stevens! Check out our website for more information on each site and why we love it for road tripping. Before you go, bring your car into Sherwood Auto where we can make sure the only surprises on your trip are the views.
