Tahkenitch Landing Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

On the shores of Tahkenitch Lake sits Tahkenitch Landing Campground, 9 miles north of Reedsport, Oregon. Sites that fit tents or small campers sit on the rim of the lake, while larger sites that accommodate RVs are up the hill overlooking the lake. The grassy campground is hugged by coastal trees and shrubbery, including mixed pine and cedar. Each campsite comes with a picnic table and a fire ring with grill. Vault toilets are onsite and families enjoy picnicking in the day-use picnic area. Sites 1 - 8 have no turnarounds and are limited to tent camping or small campers. No drinking water is available, so campers should bring a sufficient amount.

The 1,674 acre lake welcomes boating, swimming and fishing for bass and trout. Tahkenitch Dunes Trail is nearby. Wildlife watching 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.
