“Warmer spot than Brookings”

Alfred A Loeb State Park
Ranked #5 of 21 things to do in Brookings
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 7, 2013

When it's cold & foggy in Brookings, head here! We went exploring here & ended up coming back again, heading further up the road. Many riverside picnic, camping spots along the Chetco river. The state park has clean pit toilets (really, not an oxymoron) and a lovely walk on a trail beside the river. Our experience was day use only. A great spot!

We had such a great time here that we actually visited it twice. We went one morning for a hike along the river and then through the redwoods. It was one of the nicest hikes we had on our whole trip. The scenery is just spectacular, and it was so quiet. We also loved walking along the river, and we went back one evening to spend more time there looking at the interesting rocks and discovering salamanders and frogs in the water. Others were swimming or kayaking in the water, and although the water seemed a little cold to us, it seems to be a really great place for all types of outdoor activities.

Our friend who lives in Brookings took us to Loeb State Park for a little hike through some of the Redwoods. It was absolutely gorgeous! We went on one of the sunnier days during our visit, and the way the light shone through the trees was amazing. There's a natural waterfall and stream that seems to flow right through the middle of the park, and we were able to take several photos that turned out great! It's a fairly easy hike, with just a few places in the path being a little steep; it would be easily hiked with kids over the age of 7 I would say. Definitely check this place out!

We love the coast but camping there can be a chilly, windy experience. We stayed at Alfred Loeb State park just 9 miles inland from Brookings, OR along the Chetco River.
temperatures in Brookings were in the 60's and at the park it was 15 degrees warmer....we loved that! We stayed in one of the three cabins right on the river. The river can be reached just by climbing down the bank and across a wide rocky beach. The river is shallow and slow moving but I have read there are faster and deeper areas great for swimming. Since we had little ones having a wading area was perfect. There are shower and bathroom facilities....the restrooms themselves are rather small but then again, you are camping just enjoy your surroundings and don't let the little things annoy you. Camp hosts were friendly and the grounds clean. Lots of squirrels, robins, and blue jays. The birds wake up EARLY!!!! =) Owls heard every night and the starry nights unforgettable. Highly recommend!!!!!

Nice trailer and tent spots - some right on the river. Nice hiking in the area. Clean restrooms. Cabins available. Take mosquito repellent for evenings.
