No frills campground, great hike

Campground doesn't have a formal check-in process. Reservations made online or over the phone only. There are no showers, and the flush-toilet bathrooms are minimally attended. During one of my stays here, bathrooms were closed and only the vault toilets were accessible.

Some campsites are…

Clean and Green

We were able to make a reservation the night of which is nice.

The areas were all very well kept. The walking trails were a beautiful hike in the morning.

Bathrooms had running water and were very clean.

Would definitely recommend and camp here again.

Perfect gateway to the dunes!

The highlight for us was the beautiful trail to the dunes. We actually walked there twice it was so beautiful - once with the dog in the afternoon and then we went back for an incredible sunset. You’re close to the road but we couldn’t hear any traffic. The sites felt pretty private and were far…

About This Campground

Overview

Tahkenitch Landing Campground sits on the shores of Tahkenitch Lake. The campground is located within the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, 9 miles north of Reedsport and 13 miles south of Florence, Oregon. The lake welcomes boating, swimming, and fishing for bass and trout. Hiking trails are nearby, providing rewarding walks through the dunes to the Pacific Ocean.

Recreation

Bird watching, boating, and fishing are popular activities at the lake. Fishing may yield cutthroat and steelhead trout, largemouth bass, and yellow perch.

For a change of scenery, campers can cross the road to the Tahkenitch Dunes Trail, which weaves through a conifer forest and across an open section of dunes to a beach along the Pacific.

Facilities

A boat ramp is provided and each campsite comes with a picnic table and a fire ring with grill. Vault toilets are onsite and families can enjoy picnicking in the day-use picnic area. Sites 2 - 8 have no turnarounds and are limited to tent camping or small campers.

No water is available, so campers should bring a sufficient amount for drinking and washing.

Natural Features

Tahkenitch Lake spans 2,118 acres. Sites that fit tents or small campers sit on the rim of the lake, while larger sites that accommodate RVs are up the hill overlooking the lake. The grassy campground is hugged by coastal trees and shrubbery, including mixed pine and cedar.

Wildlife watching is a popular pastime for campers. Portions of the nearby beaches are protected as nesting areas for the snowy plover, which is a small shorebird with a tan tail and snowy white underside.
