Overview

Sutton Campground is located just off the Pacific Coast in Oregon, 1.5 miles from Sutton Beach and 2 miles from Sutton Lake. Hiking is the most popular activity, but visitors also enjoy swimming in Sutton Creek, and fishing and boating on Sutton Lake.

Natural Features:

The campground is set among scenic coastal pine, Douglas-fir, spruce, wax myrtle and huckleberry trees within the Siuslaw National Forest. The Siuslaw extends across the lush forests of the coastal mountains to the Oregon Dunes and beaches of the Pacific Ocean.

Recreation:

Hiking is Sutton Campground's main draw. A number of trails provide access to nearby Alder Dunes and Sutton Lake. Wild berries, vibrant rhododendrons and picturesque sand dunes are located along the trails.

The Holman Vista Day Use Area and Holman Vista Trail are one mile west of the campground, providing an accessible viewing platform for memorable sunsets of the world's largest the ocean.

Boating, canoeing and fishing are popular activities at Sutton Lake. Anglers cast for yellow perch, largemouth bass, cutthroat trout and stocked rainbow trout. A boat ramp is located 2 miles away.

Facilities:

The campground offers single-family sites and group sites for overnight camping and day-use picnicking. Some sites offer electric hookups.

Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are flush toilets and drinking water.

Nearby Attractions:

Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is 45 minutes south of the campground, where visitors will find 40 miles of wind-sculpted, shifting sand dunes. The area is known for its off-road opportunities, but it also offers accessible trails and beach access.

Enjoy Darlingtonia State Natural Site, Heceta Beach, Sea Lion Caves and old town Florence, all within 10 miles of the campground.
