Beginning New Year’s Day, most of the campsites at Alfred A. Loeb State Park will be taking reservations for Memorial Day through Sept. 30, 2020.
The park is on North Bank Chetco River Road in Brookings. Its 53 campsites traditionally have been first-come, first-served. However, 48 of those will be available for reservations for next summer.
All of the sites then will revert to first-come, first-served status for the winter season, beginning Oct. 1, 2020.
Campsite rates at the park will not change, although an $8 reservation fee will apply when booking a site.
Park manager Dani Padilla said the new summer reservation option will ease visitor guesswork about the campsites’ availability. “Loeb has always been a popular local campground, but in recent years we’ve seen a dramatic rise in visitation, especially during summer months” said Padilla.
“The result was an increasing number of campers arriving after-hours, expecting a site and not finding one. The option to reserve a site will help give them peace of mind about their stay.”
The park’s three cabins require reservations year-round.
One cabin and one campsite at the park are accessible for people with disabilities. All of the reservable sites have electricity and water available.
Campsites at the park can be reserved online at https://bit.ly/36lagJH, or by calling 800-452-5687.
