Siuslaw National Forest


Tillicum Beach Campground is popular for many reasons, but the number one and most obvious is its location right on the beach. Campers are lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean waves, then wake to sweeping views of the Pacific. The campground offers an ideal location for whale watching. Most campsites have beachfront views, and sunsets are not to be missed. Fishing, swimming and playing in the sand are the campground's most popular activities.


Campers enjoy Tillicum for its expansive sandy beach. Surfers and swimmers play in the waves just off-shore. Children love building sandcastles on the beach. Walking along the beach is a great way to explore the area. Cape Perpetua is 6 miles south, where visitors can wander through old-growth Sitka spruce, experience the crashing surf, investigate tide pools, whale watch or take a guided hike. Waldport, just 4 miles north, provides access to fishing, crabbing, clamming and shrimping in the Alsea Bay and River.


The campground offers several single-family campsites, a few of which have both electric and water hookups. Sites with hookups are not on the waterfront. Due to the campground's popularity, it's a good idea to make reservations in advance. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. Flush toilets and drinking water are provided but there are no showers.

Natural Features

The coastal campground lies a couple miles south of where the Alsea River meets the Pacific Ocean. Tillicum is perfectly perched on the sandy beach yet it still offers some shade. The campground offers views of both the ocean and the Coastal Range.

Nearby Attractions

Heceta Beach is located nearby, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy the Pacific Ocean. Mary's Peak is the highest point in Oregon's Coast Range and has been designed a Scenic Botanical Area because of its rich, unique scenery and plants.

Beautiful campground above a huge beach!

It's a small, very pretty campground.  Clean bathrooms. Very dog-friendly campground.  Sites are well-spaced but not intended for very large RVs. Friendly camp hosts, seen around the campground a lot during the day. Campfires are allowed when others are prohibited but check ahead.  The campground was full all the time we were there (8 days). Get your reservation six months in advance, and push that button at the right second, or you will not get the site you want. Verizon cell service is not "fair"; it is very poor, even with a booster.

Great beach!

General: 59-site campground nestled between Route 101 and the ocean. Some have water and electric, some are reservable, and some are first come, first available. 

Site Quality: Quality varies. Sites closest to the highway will obviously hear road noise so try and get a site on the ocean side! Some are not quite level. IMO, the best sites are 17, 18, 23, 25, 26, 30, 31, 41, and 46. All of these except #46 (which is a back-in site) are parallel to the road (they could be considered pull-through but there is no separation between them so it could be tricky if there are two adjacent large RVs. The ocean view was “blocked” by trees in our site (23) but what it lacked in view had the bonus of a private area surrounded by trees with a new large picnic table and a fire ring. There would also be room to set up a tent in this area. You definitely will HEAR the ocean from any of these sites! 

Bathhouse: Basic but mostly clean with soap and an air dryer. No hot water or showers. 

Activities: There is a beautiful beach perfect for walking or running. Not even sure how far it stretches; we walked for almost a half-mile in one direction before turning around and I could not see the end of it. This campground is a short distance from the town of Yachats with shops and restaurants. 

We were fortunate to be able to make a reservation for an ocean-front site one week in advance and with our Golden Age Pass, it was very reasonably priced! For us, it was a five-star stay but I gave it four stars due to the variability of sites.

Best campsite of week long Oregon trip

Great campground! Some of the sites don't have the best tent pad (not level) and some don't have great privacy but it's still worth staying here. The sites that sit along the beach are fantastic. Even the sites that are not beach side on the inside loop are well wooded and have privacy with a little bit of an ocean view. The campground is far enough from the 101 that there's not any highway traffic, only the sound of the ocean. The USFS still lists this as pit toilets but they have plumbing and flush toilets now. Unfortunately, they did not install showers though. The bathrooms were clean. They did sell firewood (we did not buy any so I can not comment on quality). The sites are close enough to get ocean spray, so items do stay damp that are left out.
