Tyee Campground, located 5 miles south of Florence, OR is part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. The small 9-site campground sits on the northern banks of the Siltcoos River beside the Siltcoos Lake outlet. A few sites are secluded by local coastal shrubbery and other sites are located on an open meadow alongside the water. Drinking water, vault toilets and a boat ramp are among the campground amenities. Each campsite has a picnic table and a fire ring with grill. Parking aprons are paved and a dump station is within 4 miles at Honeyman State Park.
Many campers bring kayaks and boat up and down the outlet. This is also a great campground for kids to play and anglers to try their luck from the riverbank. In the area, hikers can enjoy miles of open beach and explore dune formations above the Siltcoos River.
