Things To Do


The Loon Lake Recreation Area sits on the shore of the beautiful and clear Loon Lake in the Coos Bay BLM District. Loon Lake itself covers 260 acres, is two miles long, and reaches a depth of 190 feet. The lake is perfect for swimming, fishing, and water skiing, as well as a variety of boating activities. The main feature of the site is the unique and relaxing seasonal sandy beach for swimming. The site also offers picnicking, a playground, outdoor grills, interpretive programs, flush toilets and hot showers.

This popular recreation area boasts one of the coast's finest camp grounds, which tend to be shady camp sites nestled in a Douglas fir forest, and a nature trail that leads to a cascading water fall. Campsites, some of which are fully accessible, are available for both tent campers and those with motor homes. The park is only open during the summer and early fall.
