Overview

Overview

River Edge is a group campground nestled on the banks of the Alsea River, surrounded by large Sitka spruce, Douglas fir, alder trees and blackberries. Groups of families and friends enjoy the area for its great fishing opportunities, as well as its scenic beauty.

Natural Features:

River Edge is located in the eastern part of the Siuslaw National Forest, which encompasses over 630,000 acres as it stretches from the lush forests of the coastal mountains to the Oregon Dunes and Pacific Coast.

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

Recreation:

The campground's open play field is ideal for games like Frisbee and soccer, so campers are encouraged to bring sports equipment to make use of the space. The river beckons visitors for canoeing and swimming. Anglers cast for Coho and Chinook salmon and Steelhead trout.

Facilities:

The accessible group campground accommodates 100 guests. A large shelter covers several picnic tables. A campfire ring and grills are located under the shelter, and an additional campfire ring is outside the shelter. Drinking water, electricity and four vault toilets are provided.

Firewood may be purchased onsite.

Nearby Attractions:

Sandy beaches stretch north and south of Waldport, about 25 minutes from the campground. Beautiful Cape Perpetua Scenic Area, where whale watching is a popular activity, is another 15 minutes south of Waldport.

Mary's Peak is the highest point in Oregon's Coast Range and has been designated a Scenic Botanical Area because of its rich, unique scenery and plants.

The Rock Creek Wilderness Area, within the Siuslaw National Forest off Coastal Highway 101, encompasses about 7,500 acres. The area is comprised of a dense coniferous rainforest, where bigleaf maple and red alder trees line the creeks, and rhododendrons dot the forest floor.
