TYEE CAMPGROUND

Overview

This campground is closed for the off-season

Tyee Campground, located 5 miles south of Florence, is part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. The small campground sits on the northern banks of the Siltcoos River beside the Siltcoos Lake outlet. Many campers bring kayaks and take pleasure in boating up and down the outlet. 

This is a great campground for kids to play and anglers to try their luck from the riverbank.

Recreation

In the area, hikers can enjoy miles of open beach and explore dune formations above the Siltcoos River.

Anglers have a chance to catch coho salmon and bird watchers can sit back and watch a variety of shorebirds and waterfowl.

Facilities

Drinking water, vault toilets and a boat ramp are among the campground amenities. Each campsite has a picnic table and a fire ring with grill. Parking aprons are paved and a dump station is within 4 miles at Honeyman State Park. The campground has 14 sites, all of which are available by reservation only. 

Natural Features

A few sites are secluded by local coastal shrubbery and other sites are located on an open meadow alongside the water. The Siltcoos River flows west from the 3,164-acre Siltcoos Lake and completes its journey in the Pacific Ocean.

Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area boasts the largest coastal dunes in North America.

Roosevelt elk, panfish and bald eagles are just some of the wildlife that live in this area.

Nearby Attractions

Boating is available at Tahkenitch Lake and Siltcoos Lake. Off-road vehicle riding trails weave along the nearby dunes.

Charges & Cancellations

Normally, a campsite will be released to first-come, first-serve status if it is not occupied within the first 24 hours of the arrival time on the reservation. This campground does not have any first-come, first-serve sites available at this time; with this in mind, the 24-hour arrival policy is temporarily suspended until further notice.
