Salmon Harbor Marina & Campground (a Douglas County Recreation Facility)
Campground Description: Salmon Harbor Marina & RV Park is owned and operated by Douglas County, Oregon. Salmon Harbor Marina & RV Park is a rather stark destination for fishermen (and women), beach combers, sight seers and anyone wanting to explore the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. If fishing, Salmon Harbor offers moorages. The campground is fully paved with no vegetation whatsoever. Despite that shortcoming, Salmon Harbor is a great place to stop and stay for some time while the surrounding areas are explored. One can fish from one of the docks or rent a crab pot and catch Dungeness crab within sight of the RV camping area. Salmon Harbor is located within a mile of the ocean on the Umpqua River. A few miles upriver is an elk reserve with a viewing area. Some shopping and services are available in Winchester Bay while Reedsport offers full shopping and services. Open year round. Reservations are not possible.

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.
