Waste Water Dump Station: No, a dump station is available at Harris Beach State Park, 1 mile north of Brookings on Highway 101.
Directions: From Brookings, turn east off US Highway 101 onto the North Bank, Chetco River Road (County Road 784). This becomes Forest Service Road 1376. Little Redwood is approximately 15.4 miles from Brookings
Fishing: Little Redwood is a river bar on the wild and scenic Chetco River. The Chetco is one of the most productive fisheries in Oregon. Salmon and Steelhead are abundant, in season, in addition to trout. Ask in Brookings about trout and other species. From the Forest Service web page: "The Chetco receives healthy runs of winter steelhead exceeding 20 pounds and fall Chinook salmon exceeding 50 pounds. Licensed fishing guides are available to float this section on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest. The river fishes well when flows are between 2,000 and 4,000 cfs and the levels are receding. Side-drifting for winter steelhead and back-bouncing for Chinook salmon are preferred methods of fishing this stream, although other tactics will catch fish. The Chetco River on the National Forest has high water quality and clears quickly after storms."
Astronomy Opportunities: Yes, on the rocky shoreline of the Chetco River which might be somewhat treacherous after dark. Even at that, the sky view is limited by the opposite hills. For those with computerized telescopes, the exact location is 42.154° N, 124.146° W

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.
