Tugman State Park

Reservations: 800-452-5687
Despite its close proximity to Highway 101, Tugman State Park is relatively unknown -- a private hideaway on the wondrous south coast. Situated on Eel Lake near the community of Lakeside, Tugman offers 115 campsites with electric/water hookups tucked away in a mature stand of shore pines. The day-use area has a restroom and gazebo-style shelter surrounded by broad green lawns.

There's plenty of space for large and small groups to enjoy themselves. The waters of Eel Lake are outstanding for fishing, swimming, canoeing, sailing and boating. A trail around the south end of the lake allows hikers to get away from the developed area of the park and explore the lakes many inlets. Maybe you'll catch glimpses of osprey, crane, eagle, deer and other forest creatures as you walk through forests of spruce, cedar, fir, and alder.

The famous Oregon Dunes Recreation area is less than a mile away. Tugman is centrally located for visitors wishing to explore the Oregon coast from Reedsport to Coos Bay.

Eel Lake is brimming with fishing opportunities. The brush-lined shore, steep drop-off and underwater structure makes it the perfect lake for a bass boat and bass fishing. The lake has a good population of largemouth bass (some running up to five pounds), and other fish species include crappie, rainbow trout (which are stocked), steelhead, and coho salmon. All coho, even those under 15 inches must be released. There is a fully-accessible fishing dock at the day use area near the boat ramp. Trout and bass are often caught from the dock.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 23 Intended to give an EXCELLENT review but
We stayed in a Yurt at this park. Our entire trip home (1200 miles) I planned on reviewing this and each accomodation we stayed at. This would have received an excellent review. However, today we received a rather nasty letter accusing us of having violated yurt rules by having a dog in the yurt. We did not have a dog in the yurt or even in Oregon with us. The accusation and general tone of the letter was very insulting and unprofessional. I would suggest that if you choose to visit this park and stay in a yurt that you are prepared to receive your own nasty letter because if we did, anyone can. We will not return to this park on our future trips to Oregon.
