The best camping near William M. Tugman State Park guide

Overview

About

Tugman Park is relatively unknown, which is why it's perfect for your getaway. Nearby Oregon Dunes get most of the attention. Eel Lake, barely inland from the Oregon coast, is an angler's paradise. This hideaway is quiet, peaceful, and filled with nature.

Cast your line for largemouth bass, rainbow trout, crappie, and steelhead. If you catch any Coho salmon, you must release them. The other species are fair game for your dinner. Use the fishing dock if you don't have a boat. BYOB (bring your own boat) and use the boat ramp.

A small beach is ideal for swimming on a hot summer day. Eat lunch at the gazebo-style shelter. A lone hiking trail on the south end of the lake takes you away from the developed areas and into cozy, secluded inlets. You might spot some osprey, cranes, eagles, and deer.

The campground works well as a headquarters for exploring Coos Bay, the dunes, and Reedsport. Around 93 campsites have electricity and water. Some 16 yurts offer glamping opportunities.

Notable campgrounds

  • Electrical sites with water 鈥 Enjoy the convenience of electric and water hookups amid a forest of shore pines.
  • Yurts 鈥 Experience a unique stay in one of the park's comfortable yurts, some of which are pet-friendly and accessible.
  • Hiker/biker camp 鈥 A special camping experience designed for those traveling by bike or on foot.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early 鈥 Reserve your spot up to 6 months in advance to secure your ideal campsite.
  • Midweek stays 鈥 Consider visiting during the week for better availability and a quieter experience.
  • Off-peak seasons 鈥 Explore the park's beauty during shoulder seasons when campsites are easier to book.
  • Explore nearby camping options 鈥 If Tugman is full, check out other local campgrounds for additional opportunities.

When to go

William M. Tugman State Park is open year-round, offering a different charm each season. Summer brings warm days perfect for lake activities, while spring and fall offer quieter visits with mild weather. Winter can be wet but provides a peaceful solitude. Avoid holiday weekends if you prefer a less crowded experience.

Know before you go

  • Check fishing regulations 鈥 Stay informed about current fishing rules for Eel Lake by visiting the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife website.
  • Firewood restrictions 鈥 Purchase firewood locally to prevent the spread of invasive species.
  • Electric vehicle charging 鈥 Two EV charging stations are available at the day-use parking area.
  • No wifi 鈥 Prepare for a digital detox as the park does not offer wifi services.
  • Pet-friendly options 鈥 Select yurts accommodate pets, so include your furry friends in your adventure.
