This small 14-site campground is nestled in a grove of large spruce and Douglas fir trees, near a beach on the Oregon Coast. Campsites are situated along Rock Creek, just off the Pacific Coast of Oregon in the Siuslaw National Forest, where mosses drape the branches and ferns cover the forest floor, lending a rain forest appearance. The campground offers single-family sites situated along Rock Creek. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. No electric hookups are available.
Rock Creek offers great birding and fishing opportunities. Anglers cast for cutthroat trout and salmon. The beach and a day-use parking area can be accessed within a half-mile from the campground. The Cape Perpetua Visitor Center is a few miles north. The center has a phenomenal view of the ocean. A variety of short film are shown in the theater, and whale watch volunteers are posted in March to help visitors spot the beautiful, migrating creatures. Visitors also enjoy exploring tide pools at Cape Perpetua, and hiking along the area’s trail system. Several paths lead through dense, old-growth forests and to rocky coastal overlooks.
