Get "Cicyling the Pacific Coast" by Kirkendall and Spring. It has maps, route descriptions, etc. There's even a description of how to get to Route 30 from the Portland airport, bus, or train station. Take Route 30 to Astoria and Fort Stevens State Park (great hiker/biker sites, bike trails). There's no services close to the park (although I think there's a KOA across the street, with it's minimal store.) The last store was a Fred Meyer about 5 miles before the park.)
Between Portland and Astoria on Highway 30, the only camping I've found is McCormick Park in Saint Helens, Oregon, on Highway 30 between Portland and Astoria. I haven't camped there, but I've seen it on other people's journals.
This is an outstanding route. Enjoy!
