Salmonberry County Park

Nestled along the Alsea River, this secluded park features a nature trail, boat ramp, picnic area, and restroom open year-round. From May 15 – Oct 15, it also features a hosted campground with 20 campsites, clean restrooms and coin-operated showers. No reservations are accepted. On the river, watch for Hooded and Common Mergansers, Wood Duck, Bald Eagle, Northern Harrier, White- tailed Kite, Belted Kingfisher, Varied Thrush, and Yellow, Wilson’s, and MacGillivray’s Warblers. Chinook salmon migration begins after first rains in September. Also look for beaver and river otter along the river. To canoe the Alsea River, put in at Campbell Park, 2 mi E of Salmonberry Park, and paddle W downstream to Salmonberry Park. Some portage may be required in summer months; be sure to wear life preservers and avoid tree snags in river.

From the town of Alsea on Hwy 34, travel W for 7 mi to Salmonberry Rd. Salmonberry Park is 0.5 mi down Salmonberry Rd on the L. (GPS 44 20.593 N, 123 41.102 W)
