Penny Sturdivant Park is great for a short visit, or a day picnic with family. You may even see a bald eagle swooping down to the Coquille River to catch a fish.
Great little park
Great little quiet park to spend the night at. The host was super helpful pointing out the best spot to park our van. We felt totally safe there and would definitely stay there again when we are in the area. Bonus- Whiskey Run Mtb trails are nearby.
Dogs at large
There are dogs running at large all over this park. I've seen 2 dog fights and a close call within an hour.Is there no park host, park ranger, no leash law?
$10 camping fee
Need a place to stay after a long drive that's cheap? You found it. Bathrooms and port a potties to serve your basic needs, with water spigot at the gazebo. No frills, just a wide spot on 42S to stay for $10 a night. Camp host on site for security, self pay station at the entrance. Nice views of the river, fire pits, bbq and picnic tables. Day use is free, but you need a permit after dark.
Great park for a short visit or day long family picnic
The park borders the river and is a great place for photography: sunsets reflect in the river, and local senior students come here for senior photos. The park is also the home of local soccar and softball leagues.
Good boat launch and not much else
We use this park mainly to launch the boat in the river. We have attended various activities, both public and private here as well. The amenities are few but the park is spacious with good parking. There isn't much for playground equipment, especially for little people.
