The campground is closed for the season, but will re-open on May 23, 2013. In 1856,the discovery of gold on the Sixes River caused a flurry of gold mining and settlement on the southern Oregon Coast. Recreational miners still camp at the Sixes River campground during certain times of the year. The area is also popular with people looking for a more rustic camping experience in an off-highway location. Explore the region as early miners did by rock-hopping or walking along the river. Or set a more leisurely pace by bird watching, playing in the water, and relaxing in the shady campground. During the summer months, arrive early to get a camp site. Each campsite is limited to six people and two vehicles.
