Quosatana Campground


Campground Description:  The Quosatana Campground is owned and operated by the Forest Service.  Quosatana Campground is one of the nicest full service Forest Service campground in southern Oregon.  It exists primarily for fishing the Rouge River and offers beautiful campsites for both tent camping and RV camping enthusiasts.  The campground consists of 2 loops.  The camping sites on the east loop are more open to the surrounding area and offer the chance to tell tall fishing stories to your neighbors.  The west loop is much more private with trees and shrubbery between each camping site.  All roads and camping sites are paved.  Wild turkey and deer can often be seen and are relatively tame.  Of course, never feed the wildlife!  Groceries, restaurants, services and sporting goods stores are all available in Gold Beach.  You can purchase fresh fish in Gold Beach and claim that you caught them yourself!  Open year round.  Reservations are not possible.  In the state of Oregon it is illegal to hold a camping site for another party.  Significant penalties apply.  Campground host resides at Quosatana year round.

Fishing:  This campground is every fisherman's dream.  A beautiful campground, a boat launch and a modern fish cleaning station - what more could a fisherman want?  Fish for Steelhead and Salmon, in season.  If the river foils your dreams of landing "the big one" then head back to Gold Beach for deep sea charters or a fishing guide.

Astronomy Opportunities:  Somewhat limited due to the surrounding trees but the large lawn area between the pay station and the dump station will work.  The exact location for computerized telescopes
is 42.4984° N, 124.2337° 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.
