Riley Ranch County Park & Campground (A Coos County Park)


Campground Description:  Riley Ranch County Park and Campground is owned and operated by Coos County.  Riley Ranch County Park and Campground was built to offer off-road vehicles and their riders access to the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.  As such the camper can reasonably expect to hear off-road riders revving their engines from dawn to long after the sun sets.  A quite and peaceful campground this is not.  However, for off-road vehicle enthusiasts, this is a Mecca in the dunes.  The annual Sandfest off-road races are held at Riley Ranch every year.  If you are a fisherman (or woman), plan to take your paddle or electric motor powered boat onto the adjacent 25 acre Butterfield Lake as it offers plenty of fishing opportunities - away from the sand dunes and off-road vehicles.  Open all year.  Reservations are possible.  Complete shopping and services are available in Coos Bay.

Number of Sites:  92

Electricity:  At 50 sites

Water:  At 50 sites

Sewer:  No

Waste Water Dump Station:  No.  The nearest RV dump station is at Tenmile County Park, 4 miles north on Highway 101 at the town of Lakeside.

Directions:  From Highway 101 Northbound or Southbound - Riley Ranch Campground is located at milepost 227 on US Highway 101 - 6 miles north of North Bend, Oregon

Fishing:  Butterfield Lake borders the campground and offers fishing for both campers and day users.  The lake is currently stocked with largemouth bass, crappie, perch, and trout. Butterfield Lake is open to boats but is restricted to electric trolling motors only.  A boat launch is available.  Deep sea fishing, Salmon and Steelhead charters are available in Coos Bay.  Crabbing is productive in Coos Bay

Astronomy Opportunities:  Not good.  There are lots of trees obscuring the skies and the surface of the entire area is large crushed rock making both the telescope's feet and the operator's feet unsteady

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
