Tenters are welcome here with more than twenty sites to choose from, all being close to water and restrooms. If you prefer a yurt or a cabin there are two rustic yurts, six deluxe yurts and two rustic cabins just waiting for ya’ to check out. Pets are welcome in some of these!
As mentioned above, campers have one restroom available in the full hookups area when you first enter the campground and also another restroom and hot showers down in the lower area where you’ll find the tent sites and standard hookups.
During the day you may hear different types of recreational vehicles in the background because here just short hike away from this awesome Umpqua Lighthouse camping, there is a recreational area for some off road vehicles.
