Overview

Overview

Waxmyrtle Campground is an ideal spot for mixing the rush of rugged off-road vehicle riding with the comforts of sleeping in a standard site with paved parking, drinking water and flush toilets.

Located just 7 miles south of Florence, Waxmyrtle marks the start of the Waxmyrtle Trail, which borders the picturesque Siltcoos River Estuary.

Wildlife viewing is a popular pastime for campers. Portions of the nearby estuary are protected nesting areas for the snowy plover, a small shorebird with a tan tail and snowy white underside.

Natural Features:

The campground is located near the Siltcoos River among Shore pine, huckleberry, and other coastal shrubs and conifers. Many sites are surrounded by a thick wall of coastal shrubbery, providing ample privacy from neighboring sites.

The campground is part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering up to 500 feet above sea level.

Recreation:

The Waxmyrtle Trail offers outstanding views of the lower river estuary and the Pacific Ocean as it winds its way along the river to the beach. Other nearby trails include the Lagoon Trail and Chief Tsiltcoos Trail.

Nearby off-road vehicle trails and open dune riding areas provide hours of fun for off-road enthusiasts.

Facilities:

Camping is available year-round and amenities include pressurized drinking water, a campground host, flush toilets and trash collection. Parking aprons are paved.

Nearby Attractions:

Siltcoos Lake offers bass, cutthroat and rainbow trout fishing.
