Learn more about this land: Camp Catching is located on Catching Slough a beautiful tidal water way located in the Coos Sumner area near Coos Bay. Home lands to the Coos and Coquille tribes. Camp catching is a part of Blue Barns Farms, a 6 acres homestead located on Old Wagon Rd. This area is considered a “Banana Belt” as during the summer it is often 15 degrees warmer than “in town” and outside of the fog bank that is often seen daily closer to the ocean. It is a great place to set up camp while exploring other areas of our beautiful community. The Oregon Bay Area ( Coos County) is a True Hidden Gem. You can go from mountain to sea; exploring waterfalls to playing at the beach all in one day. We have 3 camping areas around our little blue barn and surrounding area. Each camp spot has a solo fire pit and picnic table (please note: fires will be permitted based on fire risk.) All 3 camping spots have access to Catching Slough for paddle boarding and kayaking; I have been known to even swim on a hot day. We have two paddle boards, one double kayak and a child kayak (less than 130 lbs) available for camper use. Catching slough is influenced by the tides and contains brackish waters- both add additional magic to this area. This means twice a day the slough empties traveling to the ocean and fills up again. High tide is a great time for paddle boarding and kayaking; low tide is wonderful for watching birds and other animals. Anytime is actually great for bird watching! We have a number of different species of birds that rest here while migrating- the opportunity to see them all depends on the time of year that you visit. You can also watch fish jump in the bend of the slough. Other oddities that we have seen since living here over the last 7 years- swimming deer and even a seal(only once)! Everyone who comes to visit finds the slough mesmerizing and beautiful! For facilities we have an outdoor shower and Porter potties that are emptied regularly. Our little Blue Barn is a communal space offering a refrigerator, kettle and tea house. There is also a barbecue located outside the barn for camps use.

A lovely spot!
Camp Catching was wonderful! Alisha was friendly and welcoming, and the site was amazing. I loved having such easy access to the slough. When the tide was too low to paddle, it was fun to sit and watch the critters (mostly birds) come out. The barn was a great place to sit and read in the evenings.

The location was beautiful and I felt very safe camping alone with my child. We were welcomed by the hosts’ husband and their two friendly dogs. My son loved playing in the blue barn and I enjoyed the scenery and delicious tea. We had a lovely stay, slept incredibly because it was so quiet, and we’ll definitely stay again if we’re in Coos Bay. Host Alisha was very quick to respond too.

Catching Summer Magic
This camp was pure magic! The barn was so comfy with plenty of seating, games, and a fridge which was super helpful. The grounds were perfect for the kids to explore and we even got to kayak on the slough with the ones available at the site. The outdoor shower was private and relaxing and had surprisingly good water pressure! This is the perfect place to stay wether you’re a family with children or adults. We saw lots of wildlife, even otters in the slough. There’s no cell service but they did have Wi-Fi available at the sites. The port-a-potty was the cleanest one I have ever used. The campsite is also in a good location as you are a short drive from beaches, waterfalls, and other hiking. It was clear the hosts put a lot of thought into the camp and have strived to make it super comfortable. They were also so friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back again!
