Free Guide to Northwest Camping
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.
