Umpqua Lighthouse State Park includes an impressive swath of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, the Umpqua River Lighthouse, and the intimate, friendly Lake Marie. The campground here is an ideal choice for exploring any of these attractions, and the quality of the campground keeps it in the running as a home base for a longer stay as well. If you are exploring around the Reedsport area, north or south along the coast, or checking out nearby lakes, dunes, or the Umpqua River, the Umpqua Lighthouse State Park Campground is a top choice for accommodation.

The deluxe yurts in this campground are well worth the planning and reservations it takes to land one. You’ll get a kitchen complete with a refrigerator, microwave, and sink, and you’ll have your own bathroom and shower. When the weather turns for the worse or you grow weary of the Lake Marie views off of the front porch, you can resort to using the provided DVD/TV. These yurts have plenty of room, as well. One is ADA accessible, and two are pet friendly. Two rustic yurts and two rustic cabins have fewer amenities, but they do still have heat, beds, electricity, and the cabins have some of the best views of Lake Marie. Note that bedding is not supplied for any of these shelters.

Of the 17 sites with hookups, eight are full hookup and nine are electric and water only. There are 23 tent sites that are well spaced and afford some privacy. Restrooms with flushing toilets and hot showers are centrally located in the main loop, and a hiker/biker camp is near the trail access to Lake Marie. Firewood is available for sale, and every site comes with the basic arrangement of a picnic table and a fire pit.

This campground is small when compared to other coastal campgrounds, so advance reservations are highly recommended for any site, but especially for the yurts and cabins.

A profound concept originally envisioned by governor Oswald West, in 1967 the Oregon legislature ultimately realized his vision of making the entire Oregon Coast forever open to the public in a piece of landmark legislation titled the Oregon Beach Bill, officially making all 363 miles public land. "The People's Coast" is truly a one-of-a-kind coastline, a unique blend of mountains and rocky stacks, towering old growth forests, marine sanctuaries, tide pools and kelp forests, charming towns, historic fishing communities, world-class golfing, breweries, and simply jaw-dropping scenic beaches. We encourage you to plan your next trip at visittheoregoncoast.com or by calling (541) 574-2679.
