Waxmyrtle Campground

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

Waxmyrtle Campground is an ideal spot for mixing OHV riding with the comforts of sleeping in a standard site with paved parking, drinking water and flush toilets. 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. Amenities include drinking water, a campground host, flush toilets and trash collection. Parking aprons are paved.

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. 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.
