Salmonberry County Park
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Nestled along the Alsea River, this secluded park features a nature trail, boat ramp, picnic area, and restroom open year-round. From May 15 – Oct 15, it also features a hosted campground with 20 campsites, clean restrooms and coin-operated showers. No reservations are accepted. On the river, watch for Hooded and Common Mergansers, Wood Duck, Bald Eagle, Northern Harrier, White- tailed Kite, Belted Kingfisher, Varied Thrush, and Yellow, Wilson’s, and MacGillivray’s Warblers. Chinook salmon migration begins after first rains in September. Also look for beaver and river otter along the river. To canoe the Alsea River, put in at Campbell Park, 2 mi E of Salmonberry Park, and paddle W downstream to Salmonberry Park. Some portage may be required in summer months; be sure to wear life preservers and avoid tree snags in river.
From the town of Alsea on Hwy 34, travel W for 7 mi to Salmonberry Rd. Salmonberry Park is 0.5 mi down Salmonberry Rd on the L. (GPS 44 20.593 N, 123 41.102 W)
