Take a deep breath and get ready to relax on the shores of one of the best rivers in Oregon. Tyee Recreation Site has 15 non-reservable campsites and is located on the main stem of the Umpqua River. Many of the campsites are located right on the bank of the river. A day-use picnic area and 50 person pavilion offer an exceptional setting for small group activities. Easy access to the river allows for fishing and water play opportunities. Keep an eye towards the sky for a chance to see the resident Osprey in the day-use area.
Know Before You Go:
All campsites (except site #1), restrooms, water spigots, and the pavilion are wheelchair accessible. To reserve the pavilion, visit www.recreation.gov or call 1-877-444-6777.- Pets are allowed in the campground, but must be kept on a 6-foot or shorter leash. Campground is open year round, however sites 11 - 15 are open from late-April to Mid-October. Point of Interest:
Fishing enthusiasts will enjoy the chance to catch salmon, steelhead, or bass depending on the season. The town of Elkton is nearby which is well known for its wineries and Butterfly Pavilion.

With the COVID all the camp is reserved on the BLM website. Earl, the camp host, works hard and has the cleanest pit toilets that I have used in a long time. You can float the river, watch out for the white water!! Kids can swim and Dad can catch a bunch of small mouth bass.
