Overview

Alder Dune Campground sits in a lush coastal forest between Alder and Dune Lakes in western Oregon.

The campground, in the Central Coast Ranger District, boasts 39 campsites with privacy created by walls of beautiful native shrubbery.

Recreation

The quiet ambiance at the campground is ideal for wildlife viewing. Both Alder and Dune Lakes are stocked with rainbow trout several times a year for enjoyable fishing.

A trail system starting at the day-use area leads guests through an easy to moderate journey around Alder Lake and over sand dunes, where it connects to Sutton Trail and heads to a Pacific Coast beach.

Facilities

The day-use area is nearest to Dune Lake, and the northern loop of the campground runs along Alder Lake. Pit toilets and drinking water are available at the nicely shaded campground. Roads are paved.

Natural Features

Alder Dune sits in the Siuslaw National Forest. The forest is located in the coast mountain range of Oregon and is one of the two forests in the continental United States bordering the Pacific Ocean. Thick Douglas fir forests contrast sharply with miles of open sand dunes, beaches and freshwater lakes.

Nearby Attractions

Heceta Beach is located nearby, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy the Pacific Ocean.
