Family Friendly Siuslaw

Being outdoors can help your mind and body at the same time and has powerful benefits to children. We love helping families, schools, and community groups get their kids outside to explore the forest. Whether they’re hiking under big trees, poking around tidepools, learning about streams or meadows, or just being silly on a sand dune, kids gain a lot from time spent outside. The Siuslaw offers many ways for kids and families to experience nature and pique their curiosity about the world around them.

Planning a national forest adventure? There's an app for that!

The USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Region is excited to announce that the recently launched Pacific Northwest Forest Service recreation app is now available in Android and iOS mobile platforms.

The new recreation app is based on a mapping interface that allows visitors to find recreational opportunities near them. The app also provides information on hiking trails, camping, picnicking, boating areas, and more across 16 national forests, one national scenic area, and two national volcanic monuments in Oregon and Washington. In addition, users will find other important information on passes and fees, visitor center locations and office hours, and alerts on fires and road closures.

Interactive Visitor Map

The interactive visitor map lists recreation areas, roads and trail systems, so you can digitally explore and plan your next adventure.
