Overview

Camping is closed for the 2020 season. Reserve your 2021 season dates beginning October 30, 2020.  

Alsea Falls Recreation Site is located along a Bureau of Land Management National Back Country Byway, located in the Oregon Coast Range, 13 miles west of Monroe, Oregon, in Benton County. Alsea Falls is open for camping the first weekend in May through the end of September of each year. Day use is open year round. The South Fork of the Alsea River flows through the Alsea Falls Recreation Site, cascading down 30 feet to form Alsea Falls in the day use area.

Recreation

The beautiful surroundings of Alsea Falls can be enjoyed by exploring the trails that wander through the area and lead to the picnic grounds and beyond. On a warm day, Alsea Falls Recreation Site offers cool relief along the river.

During the winter months, the South Fork of the Alsea River provides excellent salmon and steelhead fishing. Be sure to check with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for current fishing regulations.

This recreation area has 16 individual campsites; all are reservable. No first come-first served availability, however, you can come by on a nightly basis to camp if the site is not reserved until the reservation holder arrives. Amenities within the campground include drinking water and vault toilets. Several campsites can accommodate large RVs or trailers: up to 32 feet long.
