South Central Oregon Coast Campgrounds



South Central Oregon Coast

The South Central section of the Oregon Coast is home to one of the largest cities on the Oregon coast and yet some of the most pleasantly remote areas of the coast.  Bandon is a costal fishing village with a public pier, deep sea fishing and lots of tourist activities.  The town of North Bend is the southernmost end of the expansive Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.  Inland from the coast are dozens of forest service and county camping areas.  The costal mountain range is almost completely open to hikers and backpackers.

This section of the Oregon Coast offers 4 State of Oregon campgrounds; Winchester Bay, Umpqua Lighthouse, William Tugman, Sunset Bay, and Bullards beach.  All 4 are terrific but there are dozens of county, forest service and private campgrounds as well.

The Forest Service offers a great web site that suggests more outdoor adventures than you'll ever be able to complete.  The section of adventures available from Coos Bay north to Florence can be found here: US Forest Service Activities Guide

If you are a golfer looking for one of the most picturesque and challenging golf courses in Oregon, the Bandon Dunes Golf Course might be what you are looking for.  For those of us who play golf but don't keep a score, there are dozens of par 3, executive 9 and 18 hole courses.

Astronomy camping is limited by the typical evening fog, but on clear nights the views are spectacular.

If you are a fisherman or woman, there are hundreds of small streams teeming with rainbow trout as well as bigger game fishing on the major rivers.  Deep sea charters are available in almost every costal town, but river guides may be a better idea if you want to really explore the rivers.

Bring your fishing pole, golf clubs, telescope, a camera, or just your favorite lawn chair and be prepared to be amazed by the natural beauty and diversity offered near RV camping and tent camping sites throughout coastal Oregon.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
