Alfred A. Loeb State Park

General Advisory
Traffic congestion on Interstate 5 (I-5) south of Cottage Grove has been particularly bad for travelers heading north on Sundays. Traffic combined with road construction has created long delays that are expected to repeat on April 25 and May 3. The Oregon Department of Transportation encourages weekend travelers along the coast to avoid Highway 38 (Reedsport to I-5) and instead continue north on U.S. 101 to Florence, then take another route to I-5.

Your first impression of Loeb may well be the fresh scent of the myrtlewood forest ... a crisp, eucalyptus-like fragrance.  The park is nestled in a grove of these lovely trees, many of which are well over 200 years old.  The pristine Chetco River runs clean and clear along the southeast edge of the park.

Several campsites and three rental cabins face this scenic river.  During the year, you can fish, swim and raft, or walk the self-guided Riverview nature trail. The river offers some of the finest fall and winter salmon and steelhead fishing on the south coast.  You can plunk from the bank or try your luck on a drift boat. Throughout spring and summer you may see scampering squirrels, soaring osprey, or a family of river otters frolicking in the water.

The northern-most redwood grove in the U.S. can be found at the end of the Riverview Trail by crossing the North Bank Road and hiking the 1-mile U.S. Forest Service Redwood loop.
