Find your adventure at this rugged paradise on the Oregon Coast.
Experience the shoreline of the Pacific Northwest in all its glory when you camp near Coos Bay. Together with neighboring North Bend and Charleston, it’s earned the nickname “Oregon’s Adventure Coast.” Spend a day here, and you learn why. Clamming, beach combing, boating, and windsurfing are just a few ways to play on the rugged Oregon Coast. Start your adventure from Sunset Bay State Park. Get stoked about RV and tent camping just steps from a half-moon bay. With its shallow waters, it’s a favorite spot for swimming. Strap on your hiking boots to explore the rugged cliffs, or try your luck fishing the surf. Looking for a big adventure? Hop on the Oregon Coast Trail, which passes through Shore Acres and Cape Arago State Parks. Keep an eye out for sea lions and migrating whales during your trek. Just outside of Charleston, Bastendorff Beach County Park tempts adventurers with sea cliffs and hidden pocket beaches. It’s also a local surfer’s haunt—watch out for undertows and sneaker waves. After a day on the shore, pitch a tent at the year-round campground. Here, RV and tent sites are nestled in the coastal woods with picnic tables and fire rings. Coos Bay also connects you to Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. The unique landscape of rolling coastal dunes attracts 1.5 million visitors per year. ATVs, dune buggies, and your own two feet are all great ways to explore the dunes—some reaching 500 feet high.
