Waxmyrtle Campground is an ideal spot for mixing the rush of rugged off-road vehicle riding with the comforts of sleeping in a standard site with paved parking, drinking water and flush toilets. Located just 7 miles south of Florence, Waxmyrtle marks the start of the Waxmyrtle Trail, which borders the picturesque Siltcoos River Estuary. Wildlife viewing is a popular pastime for campers. Portions of the nearby estuary are protected nesting areas for the snowy plover, a small shorebird with a tan tail and snowy white underside.
From Florence, Oregon, go south on Highway 101 to the Siltcoos Beach access road. Turn west on Siltcoos Beach access road and proceed about 1 mile to Waxmyrtle Campground.
