Tahkenitch Campground & Trailhead


Campground Description:  Tahkenitch Campground and Trailhead is owned and operated by the forest service.  Tahkenitch Campground and Trailhead is often confused with its neighbor to the north, Tahkenitch Landing & Campground.  Similar names, only 460 yards apart and worlds different.  Neither allows off-road vehicle travel.  Tahkenitch Campground is located on the west side of Highway 101 and offers running water, flush toilets and hiking trails out to the beach.  Hiking ranges from easy to moderate, unless you count walking on the soft sand at the beach.  Shopping and services are available in Reedsport to the south or Florence to the north.  Open May 1 to September 30.  Reservations are available.

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.
