8/21 Tillicum Beach Campground

Tillicum Beach Campground is part of the U.S. Forest Service, which means it is a federal facility.  Few U.S. Forest Service campgrounds have electric hookups or even water available, but this one has both water and electric for many of its sites, plus it has plumbed restroom facilities.  Unfortunately, it does not have a dump station or showers.  I really only care about a dump station, but there is a city dump station in nearby Waldport.  

This is the camp host sites and check-in.

Anyway, the best part of this campground is its location--right on the Pacific Ocean!  And not even separated by dunes and a long walk as are all the Oregon State Parks.  I not only reserved the only spot where you can get satellite TV, but it is also on the other side of the road from the beach, so if there is no one camped there, I can see the ocean. 

There are sites right along the ocean, but they have no electric or water, and I DO like electric. In addition, most of them are small and are used by tent campers.   

A large part of this campground is tucked in the trees.  Sites are relatively small, however. 

You would be able to see the ocean just to the right in this photo if it weren't so foggy! It is also pretty chilly here, with days in the low 60s and nights in the 50s.

 The entrance to the beach is just across from me, so easy to get to.

Lots of haze and fog, and this was one of the better days we had!! 

 Nice beach, though.

I'm not sure when this erosion occurred, but the cliff on which the campground rests has rock in some areas to protect it, but not in others.

I've been doing a lot of working, but it is nice to be able to take a quick break and walk around the campground or go out onto the beach for a while.
