    Welcome to Elliott State Forest Dispersed Camping area in Oregon. This spot is a gem for those who love a rugged, off-the-beaten-path experience. Nestled in the heart of the Elliott State Forest, this area offers a true escape into nature with over 550 miles of roads and trails. While only a primary network has been maintained in recent years, these paths lead to some fantastic camping spots, including old lookouts, fishing holes, and secluded springs.

    One of the standout features here is the sheer seclusion. Many visitors have noted that they rarely see other campers, making it perfect for those seeking solitude. The campsites are spacious and often come with stunning views, especially if you venture up Marlow Creek Road. Just be prepared for a bit of a drive and some overgrown side roads that might scratch up your car.

    Don't expect any frills here—there are no toilets, drinking water, or trash services. It's a pack-in, pack-out situation, so come prepared. Fires are not allowed, so plan your meals accordingly. Pets are welcome, which is great if you're bringing along your furry friend.

    For those who enjoy a bit of adventure, the area is known for its beautiful, albeit sometimes steep and challenging, roads. A few campers have mentioned the need to download maps beforehand due to spotty cell service, but some areas surprisingly do have coverage.

    In summary, if you're looking for a free, secluded camping experience with beautiful views and don't mind roughing it a bit, Elliott State Forest Dispersed Camping area is worth checking out. Just remember to respect the land and leave no trace. Happy camping!

    | Hiking in the Oregon Dunes Day Use Area | Three Off Road Vehicles on the Sand | Two people riding horses in the ocean | The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is a special place. One of the largest expanses of temperate coastal sand dunes in the world, the stark, mist-shrouded views of dunes, forests, and ocean in such close proximity to one another are rare and hauntingly beautiful. Many plants and animals, including some found in few other places, call this area home. In 1972, Congress designated this 31,500-acre portion of the Siuslaw National Forest as a National Recreation Area in recognition of its unique values. Learn more about the geology of the dunes here. Adventure and solitude await! Among the tree islands, open dunes, wetlands, and beaches you will find Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) riding (experience it with Google Trekker), hiking, paddling, wildlife viewing, birding, camping, picnicking, sand play - the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area has it all. PloverLove Graphic4 Be a Friend to Snowy Plovers! Share the Beach March 15 – September 15 During snowy plover nesting season (March 15 - September 15) we coordinate with Oregon State parks and beachgoers to protect these threatened birds during a very sensitive time. By following nesting season restrictions and sharing the beach, you can help ensure plover chicks survive to adulthood. Dunes areas from north to south South Jetty : South Jetty provides day use access to beach and dunes, with separate areas for OHV and non motorized use. Siltcoos : Along the Siltcoos River are traditional campgrounds and easy trails along the river and to the beach. OHV users will find developed and dispersed camping opportunities. Oregon Dunes Day Use : Miles from OHV recreation, this area provides exceptional opportunities to explore the dunes on foot. Tahkenitch : With easy access off Hwy 101, traditional campgrounds provide lake access for boaters and dune access for hikers only. Saving the Oregon Dunes In 2014, the Siuslaw National Forest convened a group of stakeholders concerned about the threat to the dunes ecosystem and recreational opportunities due to the rapid spread of invasive species. The Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative has since developed a strategy for how to restore the dunes. In 2018, in an effort to raise public awareness, the group released this strategy as a coffee-table book along with a digital version on their companion website, SaveOregonDunes.org. More information on the strategy and what the Forest Service is doing to restore this special place can be found here.

    Myrtle Point, Oregon

    Our property is 5 riverfront acres on the bend of the Coquille river. Located directly across from the small town of Coquille Oregon. 15 miles up river from the ocean. Great for fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding or just sit back and watch the river flow by while you relax and enjoy the wildlife. Ocean beaches, Old town Bandon and Coos Bay are only a short drive away. Located 1 hour off I-5 and 20 minutes off Hwy 101 and 5 minutes off Hwy 42. This is a large private site with river access. Great for those looking to get away from the crowded campgrounds. (You will be the only campers) Laundry mat, restaurants. Coffee shops, grocery stores and gas station less than 5 miles away.
