Siuslaw National Forest


Stretching from the lush forests of the coastal mountains to the unique Oregon Dunes and on into the beaches of the Pacific Ocean, visitors have a stunning choice of opportunities. One can find activities to suit every taste: from spectacular mountain views to beach combing, from whale watching to exploring the forest or dunes, the Siuslaw National Forest offers something for everyone. Highlights include great views, old growth forests, guided hikes, waterfalls, miles of sand dunes to explore, and much more!

The Siuslaw National Forest has close to 40 developed campgrounds. Most campgrounds on the forest can be reserved in advance. Reserve online at or call toll free 1-877-444-6777 (international 518-885-3639). The Oregon coast has a busy tourist season from May through October and campgrounds often fill quickly - so plan ahead and have a backup plan if your desired campground is full.

Many sites are free, but at some popular sites a day-use fee is required. Day-use fees are $5 per vehicle per day. Learn more about recreation passes here.
