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.

Number of Sites:  48 RV camping or tent camping sites and 3 cabins

Electricity:  At every site

Water:  At every site

Sewer:  No

Waste Water Dump Station:  None.  Harris Beach State Park, 1 mile north of Brookings, has a dump station

Directions:  From Highway 101 northbound or southbound, travel to central Brookings.  Watch for signs directing travelers to Azalea State Park, which is boarded by North Bank Chetco River Road.  Follow North Bank Chetco River Road for 7.5 miles east to Alfred Loeb State Park. 

Fishing:  Yes.  Cutthroat Trout, Salmon and Steelhead in season.

Astronomy Opportunities:  Yes, on the rocky shoreline of the Chetco River which might be somewhat treacherous after dark.  Even at that, the sky view is limited by the opposite hills.  For those with computerized telescopes, the exact location is 42.11240� N, 124.18661� W

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.
