At an elevation of 100 feet, Lagoon campground sits among shorepine and huckleberry perched beside a lagoon with access to the popular mile-long Lagoon Trail, is about 7 miles south of Florence. Amenities include flush toilets, drinking water from a pressurized system, picnic tables and fire rings with grills. Parking aprons are paved. A dump station is located less than 4 miles away at Honeyman State Park.
Fishing and hiking are popular, and a beach on Oregon's Pacific Coast is within reach. The Lagoon Trail is an accessible loop trail that provides wetland wildlife viewing on boardwalks. The Waxmyrtle Trail is a 1.3-mile interpretive trail that offers outstanding views of the lower river estuary and the Pacific Ocean as it winds its way along the river to the beach. The Stagecoach Trail Head is 1/4 mile west from the campground and the Chief Tsiltcoos Trail is also nearby. Anglers can find rainbow trout in the lagoon in winter and spring. In Siltcoos Lake, bass, steelhead, cutthroat trout, yellow perch and bluegill may take the bait. Wildlife is abundant in the campground and along the Lagoon trail, attracting many photographers. Native inhabitants include beavers, nutrias, ducks, herons, and bitterns - a waterfowl relative of the heron.
