Stretching from Tillamook to Coos Bay, the timbered slopes of the 630,000-acre Siuslaw National Forest meet the ocean and extend in sections along Oregon's shore. Beachcombing and fishing are allowed on 46 miles of public beach, and there are lakes and streams in the wooded areas. Hunting, boating, camping and picnicking are favorite pastimes. Day-use pass $5.
If planning a multiple-day visit, an Oregon Pacific Coast Passport is recommended. For additional information contact the Forest Supervisor, Siuslaw National Forest, 3200 S.W. Jefferson Way, Corvallis, OR 97331; phone (541) 750-7000.
