Lagoon Campground

Florence, Oregon

Overview

Lagoon Campground is about 7 miles south of Florence. Most sites are surrounded by beautiful coastal shrubbery. Fishing and hiking are popular, and a beach on Oregon's Pacific Coast is in walking distance.

Recreation

The Lagoon Trail is an accessible loop trail that provides wetland wildlife viewing on boardwalks. The Wax myrtle Trail is a 1.3-mile interpretive trail that offers outstanding views of the lower river estuary and the Pacific Ocean as it winds its way along the river to the beach. The Chief Tsiltcoos Trail is also nearby. Anglers can find rainbow trout in the lagoon in winter and spring. In Siltcoos Lake, bass, steelhead, cutthroat trout, yellow perch and bluegill may take the bait.

Natural Features

At an elevation of 100 feet, the campground sits among shore pine and huckleberry along the Siltcoos Lagoon and the Siltcoos River. The campground is part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering to 500 feet above sea level. Wildlife is abundant in the campground and along the Lagoon trail, attracting many happy photographers. Native inhabitants include beavers, ducks, herons, and bitterns - a waterfowl relative of the heron.
