USDA Forest Service

Siuslaw National Forest


Alder Dune Campground sits in a lush coastal forest between Alder and Dune Lakes in western Oregon. The campground, in the Central Coast Ranger District, boasts 39 campsites with privacy created by walls of beautiful native shrubbery.


The quiet ambiance at the campground is ideal for wildlife viewing. Both Alder and Dune Lakes are stocked with rainbow trout several times a year for enjoyable fishing. A trail system starting at the day-use area leads guests through an easy to moderate journey around Alder Lake and over sand dunes, where it connects to Sutton Trail and heads to a Pacific Coast beach.


The day-use area is nearest to Dune Lake, and the northern loop of the campground runs along Alder Lake. Pit toilets and drinking water are available at the nicely shaded campground. Roads are paved.

Natural Features

Alder Dune sits in the Siuslaw National Forest. The forest is located in the coast mountain range of Oregon and is one of the two forests in the continental United States bordering the Pacific Ocean. Thick Douglas fir forests contrast sharply with miles of open sand dunes, beaches and freshwater lakes.

Nearby Attractions

Heceta Beach is located nearby, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy the Pacific Ocean.

4 day trip to Aldur dune

Took our family of 5 to the Aldur dune campground and had a fantastic time. The vault toilets we kept clean and the grounds were very tidy. The camp hosts were unfortunately out of wood but there are several shops south of the campground that sell locally harvested fire wood, one shop was open 24 hours. We stayed on the Aldur side of the campground and walked the nearby trails around the small lakes, we also hiked the 2 mile trail through the dunes and near by forest to the Sutton creek vista point.

A small forested campground next to a darling lake near the coast

I loved this little national forest campground. The sites offered a good amount of privacy, and the lake was fun to swim and paddle around in. We took a trip to the dunes and a trip to the beach as well. Both are close by. The sites do not have full hookups, so its mostly tents and smaller RVs, which is always my preference.

Wanted to stay but sights were so overgrown and unkept. Pricing was hard to follow as well. Couldn’t tell exactly but looked like most were 2 day minimum
