Natural Features

At an elevation of 100 feet, the campground sits among shore pine and huckleberry along the Siltcoos Lagoon and the Siltcoos River. The campground is part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering to 500 feet above sea level. Wildlife is abundant in the campground and along the Lagoon Trail. Native animal inhabitants include beavers, ducks, herons, and bitterns (a waterfowl relative of the heron).

Nearby Attractions

Boating is available at Tahkenitch Lake and Siltcoos Lake. Off-road vehicle riding trails weave along the nearby dunes.

Recreation

The Lagoon Trail is an accessible loop that provides wetland wildlife viewing on boardwalks. On the south side of the Siltcoos River, the 1.3-mile Waxmyrtle Trail offers outstanding views of the lower Siltcoos estuary and the Pacific Ocean. The Chief Tsiltcoos Trail is also nearby. Anglers can find rainbow trout in the lagoon in winter and spring. In Siltcoos Lake, bass, steelhead, cutthroat trout, yellow perch, and bluegill may take the bait.
