Edson Creek Campground is in an open meadow, nestled at the junction of Edson Creek and Sixes River inland from Highway 101 on the southern Oregon coast.
Tall alder and myrtle trees flank the open meadows at Edson. The water and forest that surrounds the campground is home to many different fish and wildlife, including salmon, bear and cougar.
Fishing, boating, site-seeing, and wading are all popular activities at the campground. A seasonal boat launch is located across the road from the campground, providing a place to float and fish the Sixes River. Panning for gold is popular on the Sixes River as well.
Edson Creek provides 27 campsites and 5 group sites. All five of the group sites are reservable. The group sites are located across the creek from the main campground via a small bridge. This provides a private camping area for groups of 25 in each site.
Campsites include a picnic table and fire ring. Drinking water, universal access toilets and hosts are also on site. Firewood is also available for sale.
The area boasts warm temperatures and easy access to nearby coastal attractions. Cape Blanco Lighthouse and State Park, as well as several coastal beaches, are nearby.
