About Lagoon Campground

Lagoon Campground is about 7 miles south of Florence. Most sites are surrounded by beautiful coastal shrubbery. Fishing and hiking are popular, and a beach on Oregon's Pacific Coast is in walking distance.

Recreation

The Lagoon Trail is an accessible loop trail that provides wetland wildlife viewing on boardwalks. The Wax myrtle Trail is a 1.3-mile interpretive trail that offers outstanding views of the lower river estuary and the Pacific Ocean as it winds its way along the river to the beach. The Chief Tsiltcoos Trail is also nearby. Anglers can find rainbow trout in the lagoon in winter and spring. In Siltcoos Lake, bass, steelhead, cutthroat trout, yellow perch and bluegill may take the bait.

Facilities

Amenities include flush toilets, drinking water, picnic tables, trash collection, recycling and fire rings with grills. Parking aprons are paved. A dump station is located less than 4 miles away at Honeyman State Park.

Natural Features

At an elevation of 100 feet, the campground sits among shore pine and huckleberry along the Siltcoos Lagoon and the Siltcoos River. The campground is part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering to 500 feet above sea level. Wildlife is abundant in the campground and along the Lagoon trail, attracting many happy photographers. Native inhabitants include beavers, ducks, herons, and bitterns - a waterfowl relative of the heron.

Nearby Attractions

Boating is available at Tahkenitch Lake and Siltcoos Lake. Off-road vehicle riding trails weave along the nearby dunes.

Great campground

Nice hike to the beach Close to Florence Close to the OHV Park Close to some fishing too

Great campground!

Pulled in hopeful to find an opening. All the other campgrounds were full from Rockaway Beach to here. We found a few open spots here. Nice mostly flat sites. Each site has a table and fire pit with a grill that folds over the camp fire. Bathrooms were clean and well lit. Camp host was great! This will be a place to come back to time and time again!

Easy access

This campground is located right on a lagoon, hence the name, with close beach and dune access. It also has some hiking and kayaking opportunities. Overall a decent sized grounds with some nice walk up only sites, as well as tons of sites to reserve. Other than mosquitoes which are expected, there was a lot of motor noise in the afternoon due to the close dune access. This quiets down close to dusk and then you can hear the roar of the ocean. The campground seemed to be on the slower side, maybe due to the noise, but I was able to block it out like white noise after a bit. This site is also more family friendly than the two that are closer to the atv access. There are no showers, but they do have clean flush toilets as well as potable water bibs on site. I didn't see any wood sales, but I tend to grab that beforehand just in case.

PROS:

  • easy beach access
  • Nice lagoon nature trail
  • Lots of walk-up availability

CONS:

  • OHV noise
  • No showers
