This area is Closed
 

Tahkenitch Campground is a beautiful campground located in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, 8 miles north of Reedsport. The campground offers 26 sites, some very secluded sites with local coastal shrubbery and some sites that are more open. The campground is equipped with campfire rings, drinking water, flush toilets and picnic tables. Parking aprons are paved and the nearest waste station is at Honeyman State Park, about 10 miles north of campground. No electric hookups are available.

Three hiking trails can be accessed next to the campground at the day-use area, leading to the Threemile Lake and the Tahkenitch Dunes. Across the road is Tahkenitch Lake. The name Tahkenitch means "lake of many fingers." The lake spans 1,674 acres and fishing here can be relaxing and rewarding. Roosevelt elk, pelicans, sea lions and bald eagles are just some of the wildlife that live in this area.
