Overview

Blackberry Campground is perched on a heavily wooded bluff overlooking the Alsea River. The well-maintained campground offers plenty of fishing opportunities, including crawfishing. Swimming in the Alsea River is a popular summer activity.

Recreation

The Alsea River is a favorite spot for drift boating, and a boat ramp is located on-site. Anglers cast by boat or from shore for Coho and Chinook salmon and Steelhead trout. Crawfishing is also a popular activity. The shellfish can often be found along the riverbank.

The area is known for elk hunting, and the campground makes a great base camp for hunting parties.

Facilities

Some sites overlook the river and others are situated beside a large, manicured grassy field. Parking spurs are paved and each site is equipped with a campfire ring and picnic table.

No dump station or electric hookups are available. The nearest dump station is in Waldport.

The Alsea River flows 48.5 miles from the town of Alsea out to the Pacific Coast at Waldport and Alsea Bay.
