Guidelines for a safe visit to the Siuslaw National Forest
The Siuslaw’s campgrounds, day use areas, and trails continue to be open for public enjoyment. While you are visiting the Forest, please adhere to the following guidelines. These guidelines will help ensure a safe and healthy visit for you and your family, our employees and volunteers, and other visitors:
By state orders, everyone age 5 and older must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth in indoor public spaces and outdoors when physical distancing of 6 feet is not possible.
Restrooms that are open are generally cleaned and disinfected at least once daily at the more popular campgrounds and day use sites, and once to three times a week at other sites.
Be prepared for limited or no services, including no trash collection at recreation sites. Be prepared to provide your own soap, sanitizer, or disinfectant.
If no trash receptacle is provided, please protect your public lands by packing out your waste and trash.
The state has issued a travel advisory recommending that visitors from out of state (including Oregon residents returning from another state or country) should self-quarantine for 14 days after their arrival.

Due to the recent influx of recreationists on the Siuslaw National Forest, Forest Service-operated campgrounds went to 100% online reservations as of August 3rd. This change allows us to continue providing camping opportunities to the public while still mitigating COVID concerns.
Visitors can make reservations online through this website (preferred), or via phone by calling the recreation.gov phone line at 877-444-6777. If you call this number, please be prepared for longer-than-usual wait times. Please note that the Siuslaw National Forest does not have any control over the recreation.gov phone line, so we ask you to please prepare by making reservations well in advance.
Campsites are located directly on the sand. The dunefield is known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering 500 feet above sea level. The region marks the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America. Snowy plovers, a threatened species of small coastal bird, has a designated nesting habitat on Siltcoos Beach. Seasional closures apply.
Sutton Lake is just 8 miles north of Siltcoos, where visitors enjoy boating, fishing and canoeing. A boat ramp is located on-site.
Many hiking trails lie east of the campground in the foothills of the coastal mountains.
Off-road vehicle riding is the ultimate attraction at Siltcoos. Stagecoach Hiking Trailhead provides access to several non-motorized trails, including the accessible Lagoon Trail and the longer Waxmyrtle Trail, which meanders through the coastal shore pine forests and along the Siltcoos River to the beach. Visitors also enjoy playing in the surf and birding at the beach. A variety of shorebirds are often spotted on the shore. Seasonal whale-watching is a popular activity.
Normally, a campsite will be released to first-come, first-serve status if it is not occupied within the first 24 hours of the arrival time on the reservation. This campground does not have any first-come, first-serve sites available at this time; with this in mind, the 24-hour arrival policy is temporarily suspended until further notice.
