Alfred A. Loeb State Park
Campground Description: Alfred A. Loeb State Park is owned and operated by the State of Oregon. Alfred Loeb is yet another jewel among a long list of Oregon State Parks. Situated barely 10 miles from the coast, Alfred Loeb sits on the banks of the Chetco River, one of the best fishing rivers in Oregon. This stretch of the Chetco is slow enough to allow swimming and rafting. Aside from the obvious attraction of fishing, visitors can view wildlife and hike the self guided trail along the bank of the Chetco. During summer months it isn't uncommon to see otters swimming and playing in the Chetco River. The northern most Redwood grove is only a 0.75 mile hike from the campground. All campsites accommodate either tent camping or RV camping visitors. The town of Brookings (10 miles to the south west) offers shopping, groceries, services and restaurants. The campground is open year round. Reservations are possible for the 3 cabins but not for the camping sites. Be aware - in the State of Oregon it is against the law to hold a campsite for another party who hasn't arrived yet. Significant penalties apply.
