Along the Siltcoos River are two traditional campgrounds.

Stagecoach Trailhead provides access to several trails, including the accessible Lagoon trail and the longer Waxmyrtle trail, which meanders through the coastal shore pine forests and along the river to the beach.

OHV users will find a direct sand access campground as well as dispersed OHV Sand Camping available by permit. Please see OHV Rules for Riding before heading out.

The Siltcoos beach parking is located close to the beach, but access is over the foredune. Access is also found at the end of the Waxmyrtle trail.
