Tyee Campground

Siuslaw National Forest

Tyee Campground, located 6 miles south of Florence, is part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. The small campground sits on the northern banks of the Siltcoos River near the Siltcoos Lake outlet. Many campers bring kayaks for paddling up and down the river. 

This is a great campground for kids to play and anglers to try their luck from the riverbank.

Campground amenities include vault toilets and a boat ramp. Each campsite has a picnic table and a fire ring with a grill attached. Parking aprons are paved and a dump station is within 4 miles at Honeyman State Park. The campground has 14 sites, all of which are available by reservation only.
