Waxmyrtle Campground

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed
 

Waxmyrtle 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 paved parking, drinking water, flush toilets and trash recepticles. 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.
