River Edge Group Campground
Siuslaw National Forest \ Central Coast Ranger District
River Edge Group Campground is for reservation-only camping. The site can accommodate up to 100 people at one time. There is a large pavilion and a huge, grassy, playing field lined with trees to shade your tents. There is access to the gently flowing Alsea River for swimming, fishing and catching crawdads; including a boat slide for your non-motorized boats.
Fall Creek is just a few minutes east of the campground. You'll find a beautiful display and interpretive signs about the salmon research center just past the falls.
A fun day at the beach is a short 23 miles to Waldport where you'll find sandy beaches, harbor seals, crabbing and boat access to Alsea Bay as well as a variety of dining. Just 20 more minutes north to the Newport aquariums or 10 minutes south to Yachats and the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area.
Be sure to get a car pass from your Campground Host. The car pass can be used for parking in the state and federal day use areas along the Oregon Coast.
