Sutton Campground is located just off the Pacific Coast in Oregon, 1.5 miles from Sutton Beach and 2 miles from Sutton Lake. Hiking is the most popular activity, but visitors also enjoy swimming in Sutton Creek, and fishing and boating on Sutton Lake.
Hiking is Sutton Campground's main draw. A number of trails provide access to nearby Alder Dunes and Sutton Lake. Wild berries, vibrant rhododendrons and picturesque sand dunes are located along the trails.
The Holman Vista Day Use Area and Holman Vista Trail are one mile west of the campground, providing an accessible viewing platform for memorable sunsets of the world's largest the ocean.
Boating, canoeing and fishing are popular activities at Sutton Lake. Anglers cast for yellow perch, largemouth bass, cutthroat trout and stocked rainbow trout. A boat ramp is located 2 miles away.
The campground offers single-family sites and group sites for overnight camping and day-use picnicking. Some sites offer electric hookups.
Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are flush toilets and drinking water.
The campground is set among scenic coastal pine, Douglas-fir, spruce, wax myrtle and huckleberry trees within the Siuslaw National Forest. The Siuslaw extends across the lush forests of the coastal mountains to the Oregon Dunes and beaches of the Pacific Ocean.
Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area begins 15 minutes south of the campground visitors will find 40 miles of wind-sculpted, shifting sand dunes. The area is known for its off-road opportunities, but it also offers accessible trails and beach access. Enjoy Darlingtonia State Natural Site, Heceta Beach, Sea Lion Caves and old town Florence, all within 10 miles of the campground.

This is a great alternative Campground if you find Honeyman State Park to be way too crowded. Similar cost campsite wise. For being so close to Florence it certainly is a lot quieter than Honeyman. A great place for a quick stay on the coast. The one downside is mosquitoes depending on the time of year. So be prepared for that, especially during the end of july and into August
This campground was one of our favorites. Loop A is reservable online and has some electric sites. Loop B, C are first come, first serve. There is 2 group sites that can hold about 100. Group site D is the best, private with a couple of electric sites, but one is a 15 amp. Bathrooms are always clean and available. Spigots are throughout, but no showers at the campground. There is a public shower place in Florence for $15 per person. C loop is all primitive camping with spigots for water. B loop has some electric and spigots sprinkled about.
Cost is $24 per site and $29 for an electric site.
Although there are a lot of camp sites it seems fairly private. Nice hike up to the sand dunes - my son & dog loved running in the sand. Bathrooms were clean but nothing fancy - no showers. Never saw the camp host. Only complaint is that there were a lot of mosquitoes!
Largish( for a Forest Service camp) campground just north of Florence. Its just far enough off 101 that there is very little noise from the road. I got a really nice cozy private tent site on the C loop..the other loops looked to be more RV type ones. It was pretty quiet and had a nice hiking loop around the beautiful creek. Had a nice time later watching the bats do aerobatics catching their dinner at sunset..there is a large open space which makes this fun. Nice park, had not been here since my kid was a toddler..good memories
Great trails and views along the trails. Clean and quiet and rustic. Does have some electric sites and sites are roomy. It is not walking distance to the beach. No showers but regular bathrooms. We go here regularly and also do winter camp there too.
Usually when I stay at a large campground I expect no privacy, and load campers. However I was very pleasantly surprised to find lush, dense vegetation that lended some privacy. The place was clean, well maintained, with good sized camp sites. I was able to set up a 7 person teepee tent, as well as a 3 person dome, with plenty of space away from the fire pit. There is a nice hiking trail connected to it, as well as Sutton lake a short distance away. Highly recommend. And it is $24 a night, little spendy for me.
National Forest campground with a host in season, good bathrooms. Some campsites provide more tree cover and privacy than others. Fire rings and tables at sites. Great little picnic area as well!
Although we didn’t have full hookups for our rv, this campground was everything we love about camping. It was private, wooded, had clean bathrooms and was quiet. It was also in a nice location to access sand dunes, sand boarding and ATV rentals. Also a beach really close.
I have been here many times wIth small children. There are several kid friendly trails and large open fields to play in, the bathrooms are kept clean by camp host and there is shallow creek access. Also beach access.
Sutton is probably in our top 2 or 3 campgrounds. We get the group site which is the D loop, and it has a sand hill in that loop, so it is fantastic for the kids. Close to Florence for the activities (Car Shows, Rhododendron Festival, City wide garage sale to name a few). The campground in clean and quiet.
