Overview

Tahkenitch Campground is a beautiful camping destination located in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, 8 miles north of Reedsport. The campground offers some very secluded sites surrounded by local coastal shrubbery, with some other sites that are more open. Three hiking trails can be accessed next to the campground, leading to Threemile Lake and the Tahkenitch Dunes. 

Across the road is Tahkenitch Lake. The name Tahkenitch means "lake of many fingers." Fishing here can be relaxing and rewarding.

The adjacent day use area serves as the trailhead for Tahkenitch Dunes Trail, Threemile Lake Trail, and Threemile Lake South Trail. All three trails are good for sand play and scenery. Tahkenitch Dunes Trail goes through a mile of conifer forest, opening onto the dunes with views of the ocean. The trail then enters a smaller stand of shore pine and completes its journey at the Pacific Coast.

Boating and swimming are popular at nearby Tahkenitch Lake. Fishing may yield cutthroat and steelhead trout, largemouth bass, and yellow perch.
