Canal Creek Campground

Canal Creek Campground is a beautiful, out-of-the-way, little campground. Great for tent camping. It also has a big group area that can be reserved through www.recreation.gov .  It is just 4 miles off the Alsea Hwy, not far from Waldport, Oregon.

In 2010, Canal Creek became a Reservation-Only group campground.  The side with the individual campsites now has a common area with picnic table and a group fire ring.  It can accommodate up to 50 people.  The other side has a pavilion and group fire ring and can accommodate up to 100 people.

It is no longer a year-round campground.  The reservation season is from mid-May through Labor Day.

Entry for June 23, 2007

We are having fun watching the Stellar Jays. We watched Mom and Dad build a nest in our 5th wheel hitch out of sticks. It is hard to imagine it could be soft and cozy. After the sticks, they lined it with pine needles. We counted 4 eggs – they were a bright blue-green with darker speckles. It only took about 12 days to hatch. And a couple days later they are starting to sprout feathers!
